Development

How did you get to where you are today in the developer world?

My mom asked me before I chose high school, "- Do you want to make rivets in the factory or fight robots?"

What is your best strategy for tackling a project or challenge?

Biting my nails half of the time guessing if N1k1tung will win the challenge, then coding in a rush in last two days.

How do you keep up with current trends and advances in this field?

I am the trend.

What are you most looking forward to for the TCO Finals?

Chimichangas at the opening of TCO.

Tell us what achievement you are the most proud of.

A bug found in NSData… no, it's high rate knuckle rapping of course.

If you wrote your own developer profile, what would it say?

Development of houses, fences; swamp drying; Windows XP installation; custom-made knitting, feeding of squirrels. Did I mention, iOS app development?

Offline, what is your favorite thing to do?

Swinging in a hammock.

We asked the Finalists to use emojis in response to the following questions.
