Scott Anguish started developing for the Macintosh in 1984. Upon seeing the NeXT development environment in 1992, he was hooked on the possibilities of a unified imaging model and a pure object-oriented system. In 1994, after several years of NeXT development, he created Stepwise, a portal for information related to NeXT technologies. Today, Stepwise serves as a hub for Apple's Mac OS X technology platform, as well as Cocoa and WebObjects development. Anguish uses Cocoa and WebObjects to build better technology for higher education at the Center for Educational Technology in Middlebury College.
