About the Authors

Of course, our book would be nothing without the generosity and tremendous talent of the Vapor team:

Tim Condon is a software engineer who has worked in most areas of the industry, including security, back-end, front-end and mobile! Having previously worked for the BBC, he is now the founder of Broken Hands, specializing in Vapor training and consultancy. Tim joined the Vapor core team in 2020 and divides his time between Broken Hands and maintaining the core Vapor framework and many other packages around it. On Twitter he can be found sporadically tweeting @0xTim. You can find more about him at

Logan Wright began his career as an iOS Developer working on many categories of applications from navigation, to customized bluetooth communication protocols. Always a major supporter of OSS, Logan met Tanner through the Vapor project. Eventually, that grew into a full-time position and the community as we know it today.

Tanner Wayne Nelson is an American software engineer. He created Vapor while working and attending New York University in 2016. He eventually left school to focus on the framework full time, overseeing the release of 4 major versions. In late 2020, he stepped down from the Vapor core team to join SpaceX.
