I am Aaron Trickey, independent software developer and consultant. Husband of Hemi Trickey. Father of two and resident of the Chicago suburbs.
My current main project is TimeStory, a new, native Mac app for creating timelines: product roadmaps, project plans, history, and more. Check it out.
I’ve also released PixelNote, an iOS app which embeds a curious, fun little graphical programming language optimized for one-line animation programs, and MileTime, a runner’s app for Apple Watch which lets you run time trials anywhere and track your records.
You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org, as @at on Micro.Blog, and on LinkedIn.
Casual Programmer, LLC, is my software consulting and development business. Some highlights from my over 20 years in the software industry: I’ve run the software side of a hardware/softare startup working to make high-bandwidth optical networking technology easy to deploy everywhere. I’ve managed distributed teams building software for global customers. I’ve done consulting work at financial/trading firms, telecom firms, and manufacturing firms. If you think I may be able to help you, please reach out.
My oldest son Kevin has released several fun iOS apps, although they are not actively maintained; those pages are also hosted here.
I build this site using Jekyll. Authoring of Markdown, HTML, and CSS is all done using Vim, with some accumulated automation with Perl, Make, and C code. I value the ability to view source on the Web. I do not use or participate in any user analytics or tracking.
