About speaker:

Jeremy has always been right at the intersection of design and software. He always loved art and was delighted to discover software development as an outlet for his creativity.

After ten years of building software, Jeremy landed his first big success at the age of 19 when he built an iPhone app called Grades. Apple not only featured Grades on the App Store homepage, but awarded Grades the coveted Apple Design Award in 2011 and Grades has since become one of the most popular Education apps on the App Store, being featured in notable press outlets such as Mashable, TechCrunch, the Huffington Post, MacWorld, Fox News and dozens more.

Last Summer Jeremy quit his job and started Tapity, an app business focused on releasing meticulously polished apps that push the boundaries in touch user interfaces.
