About the author
Although Jon spent the first few years of his professional life as an attorney, he quickly
found chasing bits more interesting than chasing ambulances. He first worked at the
University of Minnesota, building a financial reporting Web site using ASP and SQL Server,
specializing in automatic integration between multiple data stores. Since joining the training
industry in 1999, Jon has devoted his time to working on various projects while migrating
from the world of ASP and COM to the world of .NE... moreT, ASP.NET, and Web Services, and
now into the world of mobile devices. During this part of Jon’s career he wrote
RESTFul.NET for O’Reilly, Essential ASPfor Addison-Wesley, and co-authored Mastering
Visual Studio.NETfor O’Reilly.
Since 2011, Jon has been concentrating on the mobile world. Working mainly in iOS, Jon
has helped numerous companies create and transform mobile teams into teams that can
create, build, test, and deploy mobile applications with ease.
Augmented Reality is another one of Jon’s current passions, along with Beacons and IoT.
Jon is excited for the next phase of mobile development and exploring how technology can
not only entertain us, but help create a connected world where smart devices start to
perform tasks that are difficult and time-consuming.
