About the Author
Bill Foust has been developing soft ware for over fifteen years in a variety of fields and technologies. He began working with BlackBerry devices in 1999--before they even had built-in cellular phones! During that time, he created and sold applications, and helped several companies develop product offerings for BlackBerry.
With the release of the BlackBerry 5810 in 2002, the development environment changed from C++ to Java Micro and Bill started pursuing other opportunities, including .NET, and has continued to do development as a consultant professionally since then.
In 2004, he authored the book Mobile Magazine Guide to BlackBerry with Que Publishing (amazon.com/Mobile-Guide-BlackBerry-Bill-Foust/dp/0789733439). This book was a success and lead to Bill being a founding member of the Mobile Computing Authority podcast with two other book authors.
Bill is currently working with a consulting company in Kansas City and continues to opine about BlackBerry and the mobile computing industry in general through the Mobile Computing Authority blog and podcasts.
