Mel has been a full-time iOS developer since 2010, and has shipped a number of high profile apps with hundreds of thousands of downloads. During this time he has held senior or lead iOS developer roles at startups including Coffee Meets Bagel, Handle, Fanhattan and Bottomline. Mel has been coding in Objective C for over 5 years, and Swift since the day it launched in 2014.
