Jake Behrens – Interview

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

Jake Behrens is a developer in Oklahoma City, OK whose recently been attacking the iPhone market app market. I’ve asked Jake to come on 8bitFeed™ to help share his story for those thinking about jumping into the pool of iPhone development. To date he has released 4 separate iPhone apps produced for his clients & himself. In addition to his steady stream of apps, he also sheds light on how you can begin speaking at one of the plethora of conferences if you have the desire to give back. Overall Jake does a great job at explaining where he thinks you should begin, or if your already involved, what are some other great tools out there for you to use.
