About the Author

Erica Sadun is a bestselling author, coauthor, and contributor to several dozen books on programming and other digital topics. She has blogged at TUAW.com, O'Reilly's Mac Devcenter, Lifehacker, and Ars Technica. In addition to being the author of dozens of iOS-native applications, Erica holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Georgia Tech's Graphics, Visualization and Usability Center. A geek, a programmer, and an author, she's never met a gadget she didn't love. When not writing, she and her geek husband have parented three geeks-in-training, who regard their parents with restrained bemusement, when they're not busy rewiring the house or plotting global domination.
