I'm an iOS developer, and I'm also especially interested in database programming and web development. I started programming computers as a hobby when I was a kid, beginning with Logo and progressing through BASIC, Pascal, PHP, and Scheme before coming across the nirvana that is Python. I used to be the head of the math department at an independent school here in Brooklyn, NY, where I taught mainly calculus courses and started experimenting with incorporating CS concepts into my school's math curriculum.

I come from a musical family---my father was the Principle Bassoon in the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra for almost forty years (yes, I've heard the joke about our last name, and yes, it's funny), and my uncle was a Julliard-trained cellist in the Atlanta Symphony for at least as long. I started playing the piano when I was five, and I picked up the guitar and bass at fifteen. About three years ago I started learning to play clawhammer banjo, and I can't seem to put it down. :) My main musical interests center around jazz and American folk music.

comment What does a plus sign denote after a chord's name?
I can't post a chord diagram in a comment, but for the E maj 7 as played in the song, reading from the high E string down, the frets are 7, 9, 8, 9, 7 (you don't play the low E string).

Tim's answer is correct, and the sheet music you linked to is wrong. That chord should be E maj 7, not E7+.

Do you have any assurance that the app you want to open is even installed on your user's device? What should happen in case it's not?

comment Passing an objective-c protocol delegate as a parameter
On the line where you write [paypalDelegate performSelector:@selector(payPalPaymentDidCancel:) withObject:self];, what is the self meant to refer to? It's inside a class method, after all.
