Daniel Devesa Derksen-Staats

I am an iOS developer since I had the chance to, when I had to choose the topic of my Master’s Thesis. I enjoyed the experience so much that that’s what I've been doing since then. It's been more than six years now. I am lucky I've been able to learn from a great variety of experiences and now I am part of the BBC helping build the News and Connected Data apps.
