Origin Stories #15 - Ben Sullivan - iOS Contractor iOS Dev Discussions - Sean Allen

    • Technology

In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Ben Sullivan, AKA Swifty McSwiftface on Twitter and iOS Contractor based in the U.K. In this episode you'll get to hear the origin story of that great Twitter handle, as well as how he just decided one day he was going to be an app developer and started the self-learning process. You'll also hear how he landed his first paying gig after 5 months. In this discussion we also dive into a lot of details when it comes to the life of an iOS Contractor/Freelancer. We talk money, taxes, lifestyle, working environments, etc... 

Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.
