For the past 8 years, my main occupation has been as an iOS developer. I've worked on my own projects, on remote teams, as a freelancer, contractor, or lead teams at big companies.
On the side, I've always tinkered with other technologies like Ruby, Node.js, Swift or React and my blog has been a playground for a lot of that. If you'd like to know more about my software development history, please check out my résumé.
Starting with October 2017, I've started my own company with the help of my girlfriend. We've launched multiple iOS apps, Mac apps & websites and helped a few clients build, repair, polish, finish and launch their apps. We also offer mentoring, consulting and workshops. If you'd like to know more about us, please visit our page.
Two of the projects we've built, ChallengeBeat and Goalee, are self-improvement driven; both are tools for becoming a better person and for improving yourself. Naturally, I've grown more and more interested in how our brains work, why we do or don't do things, how to improve and how to change ourselves for the better. So the final step was to open a new section on my blog, called Life, where I started writing about my own journey of development.
A somewhat short (~17min read) post about this can be found on Reddit and in the first post of the new section. Spoiler: the main tactic that has proven successful was "no step is too small to be unimportant", "one babystep at a time" & "never miss twice".
