Max Howell

A single year as a scientist revealed the simple truth: chemistry is super boring. Turning away from industry, he threw himself into making apps. Fifteen years later, he’s made some splashes with THE package manager for Mac, Homebrew, and dozens of apps including Poncho, featured on Planet of the Apps. Dedicated to creating tools that make building apps easier, Max founded Codebase, a training lab and apprenticeship program, with his wife, Aleshia.

Samuel is a developer well-versed in the rituals of writing developer tools that occasionally work. By day, Samuel works on making the mobile developer experience at Square less arduous; by night he can be found breaking Bundler and CocoaPods. Before this whole ``developer`` thing, Samuel studied in the highly impractical Mathematics & Economics departments at UChicago, learning subjects such as ``numbers``, ``social theory``, and ``memes``. When not coding, Samuel is often in the kitchen, marveling at the fact that dinner smells better than it looks.
