Jeremy Olson

Jeremy Olson is a college student at UNC Charlotte who has loved designing and building software since he was ten years old. While a freshman at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Jeremy was hired by Skookum (http://www.skookum.com), a local software development firm, where he has done everything from web design to developing iPhone apps. While juggling school and work, Jeremy also managed to push out an iPhone application of his own called Grades (http://www.gradesapp.com). Grades made a big splash on the app store and was featured by Apple, becoming the second ranked app in the Education category a week after launch.\

In his spare time Jeremy loves to share everything he learns by contributing to journals like UX Magazine (http://www.uxmag.com) or books like O'Reilly's recent book, App Savvy (http://getappsavvy.com). You can also catch him on Twitter (@jerols), on his personal blog (http://www.tapity.com), or on his employer's blog (http://www.skookum.com/blog).
