Edward de Jong
Mr. de Jong has been programming since 1970. He started with punch cards on an IBM 1620, a lightning fast 100 instructions per second machine, and then progressed to Mainframes, Minicomputers, Workstations, Personal Computers, and Mobile Devices. What next? microscopic biocomputers?
He spent two years developing about 80 mobile apps, mostly for the iOS system, but then switched to cross-platform technologies so that he could deliver Android and iOS simulataneously.
He is platform neutral, in that he is more interested in the revenue the platforms generate than any blind loyalty to a single company.
Mr. de Jong was the original author of Wordstar 2000, a popular word processor, and also the author of Discus, a million-selling graphic design product.
