In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Javi Soto, iOS Engineer at Twitch. We get to hear how Javi got started at a young age writing HTML and then eventually PHP as well as how the experience of getting CS degree just wasn't for him and why he decided to drop out (hint: already having a developer job helps). Javi also tells the story of how iOS came into his life with the launch of the iPhone in 2007 which eventually led him to start developing for the platform resulting in him making the journey from Spain to Silicon Valley. Javi also gives some great interview tips in this episode. Hope you enjoy!
Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.
