Hello reader! My name is Merlyn Aivaliotis, aka “The App Lady.” Thank you for visiting my website. I’m the author of Using Objective-C. My husband was the one who got the idea for me to learn how to create “iPhone apps” and share what I am learning with you. I fell in love with programming when I enrolled in a Cobol course at George Brown College. I’m was born on a Caribbean island called Dominica. At a young age, I immigrated to Canada. I live in California with my family now.
