Hello! My name is Ish. I'm an independent app developer who's been working on iOS apps since early 2010. I live in Southern California, but I'm on east coast time. I'm mostly extroverted, but I'm terrified of public speaking. Happy to join the resistance. Wait... is this the right instance?
👋 I’m Ben Scheirman. I’m a software developer from Houston, where I live with my wife and 5 kids.
I run nsscreencast.com, a site that produces screencasts for iOS & Mac developers.
I also do software development consulting for iOS, Mac, and backends with Rails. You can find out more about this at ficklebits.com.
I do a couple of podcasts with friends (vibrato.fm and appdevdiary.com)
If neglected blogs are of interest to you, you can find mine at benscheirman.com!
I'm also a podcaster. You can find me talking about creativity on Originality (https://www.relay.fm/originality), pop culture on The Incomparable (https://www.theincomparable.com), & playing D&D on Total Party Kill (https://www.theincomparable.com/tpk/)
I've been described as a "sensitive badass". I've always been an empathetic person, but I also try to take no 💩 I try to boost the voices of marginalized people & advocate for them where I can. This often means that I make people uncomfortable & angry 🙃 #introductions pt2
