About the Authors
Antonio Bello is an author of this book. Antonio has spent most of his life writing code, and he’s gained a lot of experience in several languages and technologies. A few years ago he fell in love with iOS development, and that’s what he mostly works on since then, although he’s always open for challenges and for playing with new toys. He believes that reputation is the most important skill in his job, and that “it cannot be done” actually means “it can be done, but it’s not economically convenient.” When he’s not working, he’s probably playing drums or making songs in his small, but well fitted, home recording studio.
Bill Morefield is an author of this book. Bill has spent most of his professional life writing code. At some point he has worked in almost every language other than COBOL. He bought his first Apple computer to learn to program for the iPhone and got hooked on the platform. He manages the web and mobile development team for a college in Tennessee, where he still gets to write code. When not attached to a keyboard he enjoys hiking and photography.
Audrey Tam is an author of this book. As a retired computer science academic, she’s a technology generalist with expertise in translating new knowledge into learning materials. Audrey now teaches short courses in iOS app development to non-programmers, and attends nearly all Melbourne Cocoaheads monthly meetings. She also enjoys long train journeys, knitting, and trekking in the Aussie wilderness.
Sarah Reichelt is an author of this book. She got hooked onto trying to make computers do what she told them a very long time ago and has never stopped loving it. She was inspired by Swift and now by SwiftUI to learn a new approach to this, and is a keen evangelist for developing Mac apps. When not at her computer, Sarah loves coffee, puzzles, reading and cooking - the day hasn’t started until the first cup of coffee is drunk and the crossword is done!
