I’m David Wood, I live in Te Whanganui-a-tara, New Zealand with my wife, our two children, and our cat Monty. We emigrated here from the UK in 2017.
I like to help people find their way in tech. I mentor people looking to get into the industry, and particularly like to look after those going into iOS and Swift development. The more the merrier!
I work full time for an awesome kiwi company as where I coach, mentor, and support a fantastic team of interns, and developers. They keep me very busy, and I’m loving it.
In my spare time I tinker a little with my indie projects, edit my podcast and generally chill out. I photograph interesting things when I go for walks.
I have recently started rock climbing, both on the ropes and bouldering.
At weekends I run with my local ParkRun group on Saturday mornings.
I record a fortnightly podcast Waiting For Review . I interview independent iOS developers to talk about iOS development, their projects, and the Apple eco system. The podcast started ‘Season 2’ a few months ago and has had over 8 episodes with some great guests.
If you’d like to be a guest, then mail me .
Indie projects that I’m proud of include GoVJ , AirSynth and HoloVid .
I have version 2.0 of GoVJ approximately 40% built, and I hope to relaunch the app this year.
I decided one side project wasn’t quite enough, and am also working on a pixelated video editor which I hope to release pretty soon.
I released my collection of short stories, on Smashwords: 100 words .
