Paris Buttfield-Addison is a mobile app engineer, game designer and researcher with a passion for making technology simpler and as engaging as possible.
He has written two books on game development and currently spends his time designing mobile products for millions upon millions of users while drinking too much coffee.
Paris has coded for everything from Qt to 6502 assembly to iOS and thinks digital watches are a pretty neat idea. He claims he will soon have a PhD.
Jon Manning is the co-founder of Secret Lab, an independent game development studio based in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. He’s worked on apps of all sorts, ranging from iPad games for children to instant messenging clients. He’s a Core Animation demigod, and frequently finds himself gesticulating wildly in front of classes full of eager-to-learn iOS developers.
