About the Authors

Of course, our book would be nothing without our team of experienced authors:

SamSam Davies is a strange mashup of developer, writer and trainer. By day you’ll find him recording videos for Razeware, writing tutorials, attending conferences and generally being a good guy. By night he’s likely to be out entertaining people, armed with his trombone and killer dance moves. He’d like it very much if you were to follow him on twitter at @iwantmyrealname.

JeffJeff Rames is an iOS developer at AirStrip Technologies, building software that helps save lives. Originally a mainframer, he found his passion in iOS development shortly after the SDK was released and has been doing it ever since. When not working, he’s spending time with his wife and daughters, watching rocket launches, or cooking with his pizza oven. Say hi to Jeff on Twitter at @jefframes.

RichRich Turton is an iOS developer for MartianCraft, prolific Stack Overflow participant and author of a development blog, Command Shift. When he’s not in front of a computer he is usually building Lego horse powered spaceships (don’t ask!) with his daughters.
