In 1991, Steve Jobs came back to Apple after creating the NeXT operating system. Alan was working with NeXT applications, and after Steve's move, he began building Cocoa applications. With a background in engineering and next to no professional schooling in programming, he is a self-taught Cocoa programmer. Alan has been diligently creating programs in Cocoa since 1996 and is well on his way to becoming an expert Cocoa programmer with years of experience under his belt.
Before being a full time programmer, Alan Cook worked in the computer and mining industry and then created time saving applications for the operation of his Real Estate business. Mr. Cook has over 20 years of practical knowledge and management skills in business and engineering.
Alan hopes to continue Cocoa programming well into his retirement and has plans to release many new Cocoa based applications in the near future and for years to come.
