Meet the Author

Jim Dovey has been working exclusively on Mac OS X and iOS since early 2001, during which time he has written filesystems, low-level system daemons, dynamic code generation and linking, and end-user applications for both the Macintosh and the iPhone. He was also one of the leaders of the unofficial Apple TV programming scene. Past projects have included a complete networked system management suite, a digital signage system based on the Apple TV, and the Outpost iPhone app for Basecamp users. Prior to his entry into the world of Macintosh programming, Jim wrote software for Windows and Palm handheld devices, and worked on touch- and gesture-based interfaces back when the iPhone was barely an idea. Jim currently works as a software development consultant based in Toronto, Ontario.
