I like to make stuff and get recognized for it. You can see some of those in Basil Salad Software.

What I do right now is primarily around Cocoa/Objective-C and also some Cordova (PhoneGap) stuff hence JavaScript, SAPUI5, and Android since the dayjob demands it. Also did some patents too (although I can't really say much about those publicly until they're past the Patent Office's nondisclosure period).

But those can change, since they have changed previously. Before that it was a C++ web application (yes, C++ on the web – you're not hallucinating). Even before there were Microsoft SQL Server, Java, PL/SQL, you name it. Heck, I programmed 16-bit Windows during the days.

I did 2nd line support, and shift work. I managed a good number of business-critical applications on my own during the credit crunch (and the hiring freeze that came with it). I did data warehousing. I took various job types and industry types from freelancing, to consultant, to end-user environments – from Oil & Gas, Software, DotCom, and Banking. I'm well experienced of the situations in both startups and large corporate environments and very familiar in how things get done and how things differs and how they're the same.

comment fsck_hfs keeps crashing when trying to repair my Time Machine volume
Disk warrior also doesn't work. It says "out of memory", but Activity Monitor says I still have 2GB free RAM and I've quit everything else except Finder.

comment Which OS X Applications do you find indispensable?
Should really separate this into its components. I find Keynote is superior to PowerPoint (except when you need to interchange with Windows folks), but that's just about it. Numbers doesn't hold a candle against Excel whereas Pages is so-so.

comment What Yammer clients available on the Mac?
Thanks for that. There were some enhancements done in early March about sending/receiving messages and it should feel faster – let me know if you use Yammer again and able to try out the more recent releases.

@BradLarson Strange, I applied MFi for one of my previous employers back in 2010 and got rejected.

Hi, I'm the developer of Scuttlebutt. Scuttlebutt is a native app – although not really optimized yet since it's still in beta. Would you mind explaining a bit further why do you feel that Scuttlebutt is slow?
