Scott Stevenson

If you're looking to get a start in programming with Cocoa, you've probably searched the Internet for resources to do so. You've probably, then, run across one of Scott's sites: http://cocoadevcentral.com, http://cocoablogs.comhttp://cocoablogs.com or http://theococoa.com. All three are great resources for guides to Cocoa programming, and they look great, too.

Start off with Cocoa Dev Central and work your way through some learning-to-program tutorials. Once you're an expert -- ok, up to speed, perhaps -- follow Scott's "Theococoa" blog, or, hit Cocoa Blogs for many a Cocoa-expert opinion. In fact, do both!

Scott is helping inspire and teach new developers the ways of Mac development -- developers in the future will surely cite him as a reason they are where they are in the years to come. - erm




Ted Landau

Anybody that has been around Macs for any length of time or has attended a Macworld Expo knows of Ted Landau. Ted has been writing about the Macintosh since the 1980's starting as a contributing editor for MACazine (Bob LeVitus was editor) and MacUser. His first paid writing gig was $25 for a tip on how to edit the "Welcome to Macintosh" screen. He is currently a Senior Contributor for Macworld magazine, writing the Bugs & Fixes column as well as numerous other articles. He also writes monthly online columns for MacFixIt (mac.column.ted).

Ted is the author of several books, including Mac OS X Help Line and the best-selling Sad Macs, Bombs, and Other Disasters. Ted's writing emphasis is on troubleshooting, although his columns branch out to include many other Mac-related topics. In 1996, Ted founded and was the original editor of the MacFixIt Web site (http://www.macfixit.com), where he continued as editor for the next 6 years. The site remains the top troubleshooting site for the Mac, having received dozens of awards over the years, including being listed in PC Magazines's Top 100 Web Sites.

He is also a member of the MacNotables podcast group and a regular speaker at Macworld Expo. Interestingly, Ted is a former U.S. National Othello Champion, and is the author of a book about the game, called Othello: Brief & Basic.

Throughout, and even before his Mac career, Ted was a professor of Psychology at Oakland University (in Michigan). He retired in 2005, and is now officially Professor Emeritus. - jr
