ABOUT ME
I've worked as a full-time iOS developer for the past four years. I'm currently with a company called PatientSafe Solutions, which provides healthcare professionals a mobile-based platform for communications and task management. I am also a forum subject matter expert on the excellent RayWenderlich.com. I have deep knowledge of Core Data, Core Location, MapKit, GCD, EAAccessory, UIKit, and many other API's. I'm well-versed in both the built-in networking API's and libraries like AFNetworking. I'm equally competent in both Swift and Obj-C. I also have a passion for best-practices and writing clean, modular, well-tested code. I love helping people learn and guiding them through sticking points--I look forward to hearing from you!
EXPERTISE
Ios expert help iOS - 4 years experience
I currently work full-time for PatientSafe Solutions, which produces communication and task-management apps for healthcare professionals. In previous roles I've built R&D apps for proprietary utility inspection hardware, a full-featured web browser, a chat app, and numerous personal projects. Most of my programming career has been spent developing for iOS. I am well-versed in Swift, Objective-C and all of the commonly-used Cocoa Touch API's, as well as some (EAAccessory, Core Motion, et al) that are more niche.
Git expert help Git - 3 years experience
I've used git ever since I began programming, and have made a point to learn the finer details. I prefer the fine-grained control of using it via the command line, but am also comfortable with Xcode integration and the SourceTree standalone app.
Sql expert help SQL - 3 years experience
I've taken some formal database classes and learned more than I'm ever likely to need about DB design, theory, and SQL. I mostly use Core Data these days, but am still very much comfortable writing SQL statements and designing data-driven apps using SQLite.
No icon Objective-C - 4 years experience
Obj-C remains my primary language for day-to-day work, though I am transitioning to Swift for new projects. I consider myself an expert on the language, best practices, dark corners, etc.
No icon Cocoa touch - 3 years experience
I am very well-versed in all of the common cocoa touch API's (UIKit, Core Animation, Core Data, Core Graphics) as well as some less-used such as External Accessory. I have specialized in Apple platforms for nearly my entire career and make a point of staying abreast of all the latest developments and best practices.
Swift expert help Swift - less than 1 year experience
I devoured the iOS e-book the same week it was released, and currently have some personal projects going in Swift. I am also a member of the update team for a leading iOS learning site, writing Swift tutorials.

Reid was great. I have a basic understanding of Swift syntax and he was able to help me dive a bit deeper and perform some RESTful actions against an API. We'll definitely have more sessions.
