Hello, I’m Malcolm Teas. I’m a semi-retired independent software engineer. I work mostly on iOS and server projects and do some consulting.
I’ve spent years as a senior engineering manager where I did all the manager things, but I prefer the engineering. I’ve worked at several different startups and in some large companies such as Apple. I’ve run my own company. Now I’m enjoying being a solo developer.
Most of the code I’ve written has been in C, C++, and Objective-C. I also use Python and other common languages. Today I write a lot of Swift and SwiftUI. In the past I’ve built designed & built client-server systems, designed network protocols, written device drivers, UI code, desktop apps, websites, contributed to Linux, and written UNIX back-end software. Since 2009 much of my work has been on iOS, but I also have worked on servers and network software. From 2011-2021 I worked for a medical communications company initially doing iOS work and later engineering management. I work on UNIX-derived systems on mobile and UNIX server backend software.
I’ve been writing software and just messing around with computers, electronics, and technology for much of my life. My first computer language was assembler on a DEC PDP-8 when I was in high school. Since then I’ve written code with several assemblers and in over a dozen languages total. Including writing my own Forth systems twice. I originally started in electronics and have my amateur radio license, but I soon moved to software. I’m a lapsed pilot, a photographer, hiker, biker, and kayaker and I read widely, often on technical or biological subjects. I like figuring out things. Last and best, I’m married and happy with that.
