Hi, I’m Josh Johnson. I’m a software developer living in Raleigh-Durham, NC. Most people don’t call it that but I actually live in two zipcodes. It’s weird. My congressional district changes pretty much every voting cycle.
I love creating software for Mac and iOS. For years I wrote software for Windows and the Web, but when the iPhone was introduced in 2007 I dusted off my old 12” PowerBook and started learning Cocoa. I’ve worked with many teams building iOS apps, led teams of iOS developers at Two Toasters (later Ticketmaster), and I’m the organizer of Triangle CocoaHeads and NSCoder Nights and occasionally speak at conferences about Cocoa development. Now I’m working with the team at Highrise building a cross-platform iOS and Android social network video game.
In my spare time, I’ve been learning to draw and learning German. I also really enjoy cooking and keyboards. I’m basically a nerd that has too many interests and spend a lot of my time trying to prioritize them. I watch too many Star Wars fan theories on YouTube.
