I’m Mike Nachbaur

I’m a mobile software developer, specializing in iOS but also dabbling in Android. One of my passions is in mentoring and sharing my knowledge; I find I learn more about a topic when I teach it to someone else. So this site lets me do that, as well as directing colleagues and co-workers to articles here to save me from having to repeat myself.

My other passion is my family, which is extremely important to me, as is maintaining a healthy work / life balance. As a result, I work remotely from home, or wherever I happen to be traveling to, with my wife and daughter. So on occasion you may see non-developer posts about my life, since my family is somewhat migratory.
