I am an independent developer of fun, novel mobile applications. Currently, I am targeting the iPhone platform because I think that it is a fun and exciting platform for which to develop. The tool set, APIs and the tight integration between the hardware and software is unparalleled.
I only do this as side projects, by day I am a software developer (although I wouldn't mind writing my own applications for the iPhone and Mac platforms full time). I mainly write software in Java, Ruby, and C/C++, and I dabble a little in LISP, so you will also find interesting tidbits of information about that here as well (eventually :-)).
There will be more to come in the days and weeks ahead.
