Breaking One Computer Science Stereotype

| Comments

Computer Science : HTML as 1. Mathematics : The Flaming Lips 2. Linguistics : Swahili 3. Anatomy : Pencil Answer? Just because somebody studies Computer Science, doesn’t mean they know every programming language or even HTML, just like Linguists don’t need to know all the different languages to study patterns in Speech and Dialect. If you chose B, go out and buy yourself a cookie.


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.
