    Steve Scott (Scotty)


    Steve Scott (Scotty) has been a freelance developer since 1992 although he is probably best known for being the host on a number of developer podcasts including The iDeveloper Podcast. He was also the host and creator of NSConference.

    He has been developer since 1987 when he started writing accounting software using COBOL on a Convergent Unix machine using vi as his IDE. (Sorry Emacs people). Since then he has worked on mainframes (ICL, DEC, & IBM), 16bit and 32 bit Windows, .NET and since 2007 OS X and (a little later) iOS . During his career he has learnt (and forgotten) more languages and IDE’s than is possibly healthy for one lifetime.
