Side Projects

During my free time, I have developed an App for Alzheimer patients that helps them remember daily tasks with location based I-beacon technology.   

The app is supported by the Israeli Alzheimer Institute, but it has not yet been released to the AppStore.

And I take part organizing an IOS development meetup once a week.

About Me

I love my profession. IOS development and programming is my passion.

The first programming book I read was "Clean code" by 'Robert Cecil Martin' and it has defined my vision until today.

For me, in order for an application to be maintainable, the code should be good, and good code is clean code.

Code architecture intrigues me. I follow programmers like Ash Furrow and Colin Eberhart to keep up to date with their latest insights.

I am continuously refactoring and re-architecting my projects to better suit present needs and prepare for future changes.

I am a big fan of the MVVM design pattern as it helps distribute responsibilities between classes in a GUI application.

I am one of the initiators of a weekly IOS development Meetup which brings together like-minded programmers to discuss and share their most recent insights.

In my free time, aside from learning additional programming skills, you will find me running, listing to music or clubbing.
