1: Frank Krueger of Calca and iCircuit fame

For the first episode of How Apps Are Built, I had a chance to talk with Frank Krueger. Though I hadn’t spoken to Frank before this podcast, I have been a happy user of his app Calca for a long time. In addition to Calca, Frank is known for iCircuit and a few smaller apps. During this show, he hinted at a new app to come.

Notably, Calca and iCircuit are each available on lots of platforms. How does an indie developer do it?

During the interview, you’ll hear about Frank’s success with Xamarin, writing native apps in C# and F# with 80% code reuse between platforms. Plus, he shares his experience with creating open source libraries and some of his thoughts on being an indie developer.
