software design

Beautiful products blossom when code is meticulously crafted to be modular and minimal. featherless software design focuses on building components that can be reused, understood, and extended beyond the lifetime of any product cycle.

After working at Facebook mobile as one of the first iOS engineers, featherless took ownership of the Three20 project and subsequently built the Nimbus iOS framework. Nimbus is used by nearly every Google iOS application and countless other iOS products. During the creation of Google Maps iOS, featherless software design principles were applied and the resulting code went on to form the foundation of Google's iOS UI across every product. As a result, featherless software design is running on billions of iOS devices.
