So I had my 25th birtday this weekend and I feel old. I can now get cheaper insurance for my scooter and rent cars at all rental agencies! The next birthday I have to look forward to is 55 when I can use the senior menu at Denny’s. As I get older it seems that my forehead is growing too, obvious signs of a Berkeley education. Thanks to all my friends who came out to Cha Am (Thai) for dinner and stuck around afterwards partying! Thanks to Tom for planning it and getting everybody full on cake and champagne. It’s getting late… since I’m old now I have to start going to bed at 8 PM and I’m way past my bedtime…
My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Mac OS X and the Web out of New York. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.
I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our two doggies Hamachi and Foxy. While coding, I walk several miles/day on my Treadmill Desk. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
