Greetings! My name's Kolin, and I'm a software developer for iOS and Mac.
Experiences that leave users with a smile are my passion.
I started developing my first apps via a friend's computer and some laggy screen sharing software. Eventually, I got my own MacBook. Since then, I've been crafting unique experiences on Apple platforms in my spare time.
I've worked with several great designers to produce utility apps; in addition, I've worked with several small companies and a single (very) large one, Facebook.
I am currently seeking contract work. My formal resume is available at left, and an abridged visual version is of course available on this site by scrolling down.
In the summer of 2014, I'll be interning with Facebook's iOS Engineering team.
Working with some of the most skilled in the industry, I'll have a hand in crafting products that reach hundreds of millions of people.
Handcrafted with Christian Dalonzo, Stream was one of the first clients for App.net on iOS.
Starting from November of 2012, hundreds of hours were poured in, refining views and iterating over countless proposed concepts. Focused on a rapid launch, strategic decisions were made to prevent feature-creep and develop a complex application in the span of months.
With high performance, revolutionary interactions, and a beautiful design, Stream redefined the App.net client-landscape.
From a development standpoint, the app strongly emphasizes uses of Core Data, and Core Text.
Productivity was and continues to be a divided landscape. In 2011, Christian Dalonzo and I attempted to change that.
Prototyping, designing, and partially implementing apps for iOS, Mac, and the web, Current ultimately fell victim to lack of time and the force of competition. It was, however, a wonderful exercise in collaboration and handling consumer interest.
Additionally, it utilized iOS and Mac framework technique alongside node.js server development and administration.
Developers, meet grid view.
