Tech Support & Mobile Developer, POS Management

While still attending highschool, I was brought onto this job to write a help file in HTML for the Marketplace Automation Point of Sale software. Mobile development interested me, so I bought a MacBook and a book about Objective-C. During my spare time I taught myself to program iOS applications and became the de-facto mobile developer of the company. There was also some interesting times spent writing a REST webservice in PHP.
