Meet the Author

Maurice Kelly has been a software engineer since leaving university in 2001. After spending a decade working on carrier-grade server software in C, C++, and Java, he decided to take a career departure and switched to developing Mac and iOS software. As well as being an eager consumer of all things tech, he has a passion for listening to and creating music. He lives with his wife and children just outside Dromara, a small village in the small country of Northern Ireland.

Joshua Nozzi is a self-taught technologist who has been developing software for the Mac platform since Mac OS X 10.0 debuted. He’s been using Xcode since version 1 for publishing, increasing productivity, and building scientific research applications. He’s haunted several developer communities over the years, offering help and snark in equal measures. He loves to teach technology to others. Josh lives with his partner in southern Virginia, where he toils in obscurity, usually in sweatpants and little else.
