Co-founder & Headmaster
Axel Roest has been a Mac OS engineer since 1991 and an OS X engineer since 1998. When the opportunity arose to develop software for the iPhone he took on iOS. Due to the long term influence of the graphic world, design has become a prominent aspect of each app. He enjoys working with low-level embedded computers and other electronic devices and making installations to combine both.
Daniel wrote his first lines of Objective-C in 1991 on one of the first NeXTcube’s. Since then he has developed dozens of apps for iOS and Mac OS X for clients across the world. He was a research scientist and teacher specializing in software engineering and user interfaces, working at universities in France and the US and at IBM Research. His specialities include user interfaces, video and security and he’s enthusiastic about Swift.
Jolijn started her coding adventure during the iOS bootcamp in May 2016. Immediately after her graduation she started working as an assistant trainer and has since been working as a full time iOS developer. With a background in fashion, she is constantly looking for the right balance between a technical and a creative approach to the job. Besides her day job she organises coding workshops for the App Academy. Her goal is to get new students just as excited about Swift and app development as she is herself and show them how fun programming can be.
Ben has been programming software since he was 12 and finds technology interesting. He loves being able to create anything his imagination can think up and put on the screen of a computer or a device. “The iPhone and the App Store were probably one of the most important inventions for developers, as you can produce work that people can see all around the world. It makes it more exciting and fun to do this work.” Ben is a fanatic photographer and scuba diver when he’s not coding.
Jasper’s career as an app developer began in 2014 during a bootcamp at The App Academy. Afterwards he worked for 1.5 years as a professional iOS developer. At The App Academy he gained teaching experience and started as an assistant-trainer and has grown into an independent trainer. Besides his work at The App Academy, he works as a freelance iOS developer and gifted actor.
