CocoaPods & Bundler, Chicago. @segiddins

Samuel is a developer well-versed in the rituals of writing developer tools that occasionally work. When he's not breaking Bundler and CocoaPods, you can find him in a library at UChicago, studying something highly impractical. In a former life, he has worked on everything from social networking apps to databases to constrained optimisation algorithms. When not coding, Samuel is often banging his head against the wall in frustration, fighting against a problem set.

Raised by llamas in the great state of Texas, Hector grew to be an avid couch potato who likes spending his precious couch time playing the Legend of Zelda or yelling at the TV whilst watching Game of Thrones. While he isn’t sitting at home vegging out, blogging or working on KrakenDev.io, you can find him sitting at the office writing iOS & Android mobile apps for Capital One. With a particular penchant for great mobile UI/UX, Hector writes the code that makes the world go round.
