Donny Wals is an iOS developer at Nopster, Netherlands. He writes for Packt publishing and works with Hogeschool van Amsterdam (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences).

Ever since he started his communications and multimedia design studies in Amsterdam, he knew that he didn’t just want to build great websites and apps, but also transfer knowledge to his peers and newcomers. Needless to say he got involved with coaching, mentoring, and assisting in his freshman year.

During his final two years at college, he’s been a teacher in web development and spent most of his free time exploring iOS and Objective-C. When Swift was first announced, it didn’t take long for him to start playing around with it, and after just a few months of learning and experimenting, Donny became the lead iOS developer for the start-up where he’d been working. As an active member of the iOS-developers Slack community, Donny is always up for helping out people with their code and sharing his own knowledge with his peers.
