About the Book

About the Author

Jeff Linwood

m a mobile application developer in Austin, Texas who likes working on interesting projects for myself and others. I’m currently working on the iOS and Android platforms, in Objective-C and Java, usually with a Drupal or a Rails back-end. I also do a little back-end web development work, usually with Ruby and either Sinatra or Rails.

I’ve presented talks on Building Mobile Applications with Drupal at DrupalCon Denver 2012, DrupalCamp Florida 2012, DrupalCamp Austin 2011, 2011 Dallas Drupal Days. I spoke about mobile application strategy and planning for Drupal at Dallas Drupal Days 2012. I also presented on Building your first iOS app with Twilio at TwilioCon 2012. On the Ruby side, I gave a talk on Consuming the Twitter Streaming API with Ruby and Mongo DB at the 2011 Lone Star Ruby Conference in Austin.

My background is in Java development and architecture – I worked for a small Java development company in Austin that did a lot of innovative content management and service-oriented architecture projects for Lincoln Financial Group, a Fortune 500 financial services provider. I’ve written several books for Apress with David Minter on Java development, including Beginning Hibernate 3.

I have a masters of science degree from the University of Texas at Austin’s School of Information, and a bachelors of science degree in chemical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. CMU doesn’t have much of a football team, so I became a Longhorns fan!
