Welcoming the new RemObjects Software Developer Evangelist!
October 1, 2013 in non-tech
RemObjects is very pleased to welcome Steve Scott (aka “Scotty”) to the post of Developer Evangelist for the company!
Scotty brings a wide range of skills to the table, as his CV shows:
Steve Scott has been a developer for 26 years. He started as a developer in 1987, when he was writing accounting software using COBOL on a Convergent Unix machine using vi as his code editor. Since then he has worked on mainframes, minis, 16bit and 32bit Windows (C++, Paradox and Delphi), .NET (C# and Visual Basic), OS X and iOS (Objective-C and Cocoa). During his career he claims to have worked on more hardware and learnt (and forgotten) more languages and IDEs than any sane man should have to.
During the late 1990s he was an active member of the Delphi community spending some time as the technical lead of the UK Borland User Group (UKBug), as well as being the technical lead for the popular DCon conferences and a regular speaker at BorCon.
As the 21st century took hold, he made the move to .NET and became a respected speaker at many .NET conferences around the world.
In 2007 he jumped ship and headed into the world of Apple to work on Mac and iOS software. In this new world he became the founder of the iDeveloper Blog, host of the iDeveloper Podcast and creator of NSConference.
Scotty will be focusing on improving the user-facing side of the company – work on bringing our products to the attention of more developers world-wide, improving accessibility and discoverability for new users, and working with the teams on enhancing the over-all user experience. You can also expect some more RemObjects TV and Radio in the near future, as well.
Outside of his responsibilities at RemObjects, Scotty will continue to be an asset to the developer community at large, thru his other projects such as the iDeveloper site and podcast, and NSConference.
