I’d like to tell you that the company was founded in Silicon Valley with some venture capitalists at a dinner soiree but (at least for now) that would be a lie. Something far more average was the basis for the beginning of Binary Works. It did however involve a tropical location, a pool and a week’s worth of Objective C Coding.
The tropical locale was Costa Rica, the Pool belonged to a small travel resort and the desire was one to learn a new language to build an app to help my friends who were into running do it more safely. The rest as they say is history. Within 3-4 months of that day I had an app in front of the app review team at Apple. More followed after that and while none of them were ever easy (and often ended in rejections) – they did start to find a rhythm.
Today I have had the good fortune to have 5 apps available in the app store with another one the way. Unfortunately not all of my coding is done beside a pool in the tropics but I do get by
