    Big Ass Fans
    • Developed the "Haiku Home" app, which controls Haiku ceiling fans, lights, and wall switches.
    • Made all changes necessary to get the app properly running on 4.7” and 5.5” iPhones. Previously, it only scaled up to the 4” iPhone screen.
    • Performed the work required for "Haiku Home" to be a universal app, properly running on iPad (no longer a scaled-up iPhone screen) in both portrait and landscape with support for Slide Over and Split View.
    • Improved performance significantly, using instruments to identify slow code and memory issues.
    • Fixed all Xcode warnings.
    • Rewrote much of the codebase from Objective-C to Swift.
    • Rearchitected the app to use dependency injection for view controllers and avoid segues.
    • Managed beta testing with TestFlight.
    • Took over as lead iOS developer in April 2016. I continued to implement features as directed by management and the design team while monitoring crash reports using Crashlytics and fixing bugs.
