Erica Sadun is the bestselling author, coauthor, and contributor to several dozen books on programming, digital video and photography, and web design, including the widely popular The iOS 5 Developer’s Cookbook. She currently blogs at TUAW.com and has blogged in the past at O’Reilly’s Mac Devcenter, Lifehacker, and Ars Technica. In addition to being the author of dozens of iOS-native applications, Erica holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Georgia Tech’s Graphics, Visualization and Usability Center. A geek, a programmer, and an author, she’s never met a gadget she didn’t love. When not writing, she and her geek husband parent three geeks-in-training, who regard their parents with restrained bemusement when they’re not busy rewiring the house or plotting global dominance.
