The Omni Show: Jim Correia, OmniFocus Engineer

by Brent Simmons on November 20, 2019

In the latest episode, OmniFocus Engineer Jim Correia joins the show to talk about what he and the team have been working on since WWDC: Dark Mode, multiple windows, and Shortcuts.

Jim’s first computer was a TI 99/4A, without any form of storage, and thus he had to write (or at least type) his apps after every time he booted. This experience led him to major not in computer science but in physics, where he helped search for exotic mesons — which sounds really, really cool. :)

He eventually came back to programming and took a job at Bare Bones, where he worked on apps such as BBEdit and Yojimbo. About ten years ago he came to Omni — and he’s worked on OmniFocus ever since.

Enjoy!
