Kevin Hoffman has been programming since he was 10 years old, when he got his start writing BASIC programs on a Commodore VIC-20. Since then, he has been obsessed with building software and doing so with clean, elegant, simple code in as many languages as he can learn. He has presented twice at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference, guest lectured at Columbia University on iPhone programming, and built several iOS Apps available in the App Store. He is currently Vice President, Global Information Technology for Barclays Capital, where he is involved in all aspects of the software life cycle—from testing standards to coding standards and from architecture to implementation of powerful, high-volume, low-latency systems.
