About the Developer - Robert Jen

Robert Jen earned his stripes programming 68000 assembler on Fat Macs, although he hacked around a little with BASIC on an Atari 400 before that. When he got his first PDA, a PalmPilot Pro, in December 1997, he immediately decided to quit his day job to develop applications for it. A decade later, he bought an iPod touch and experienced the magic a second time, eagerly hoping that Apple would release an SDK for developers to use. That day came after a year of writing web apps, and he began to write his first Objective-C app, THETA Poker, which was released in September 2008. Its fully accessible sequel, THETA Poker Pro, hit the App Store in February 2013.

In March 2013, he started writing a poker blog, initially focused on Texas Hold 'Em but later expanded to cover everything about poker, with a special emphasis on the World Series of Poker. Six years of research, analysis, and writing led to the obvious idea of turning the hundreds of articles into a book. But being an environmentally-conscious developer, instead of a hardcover or paperback book, the Poker Omnibus W50P became an iOS app, released to celebrate the 50th World Series of Poker in May 2019. A year later, the web version was released to make it available to a wider audience.
