Hello there. I’m Juan-Carlos Foust, an independent consultant who specializes in bringing products to life on iOS. If you want to ship an important new feature or construct a new app from the ground up, let’s talk.
What can I do for you?
Here are some of the services I offer:
- Bootstrap a new project to demonstrate a proof-of-concept, providing a scalable foundation and helping onboard new engineers to take over development.
- Implement and fully integrate new features into your app including rich, custom UI.
- Add robust communication between your app and BLE hardware.
- Migrate critical infrastructure to a Swift web service.
Devops, debugging, and performance optimization
- Reduce and simplify your project’s dependency structure.
- Add scripts to automate mundane tasks or set up continuous integration to speed up your build and release process.
- Diagnose performance bottlenecks, bugs, and crashes.
- Optimize your existing code for speed, memory, and battery usage.
Advising and code review
- Help refine product goals, define MVP, and distill design and engineering deliverables from product requirements.
- Review code and architectural decisions, make suggestions, and consult on how to implement them.
- Suggest architectural or organizational changes to reduce complexity, address sources of instability, increase testability, and reduce maintenance costs.
