R. Tyler Ballance
At the age of 21, Tyler is already well known in certain circles (like this one) as the developer of Slide's Top Friends Facebook application, the most popular app on Facebook with millions of loyal daily users. He also developed several other Slide apps on Facebook, including Fortune Cookie and Famous Quotes.
Tyler has been developing software professionally since the age of 18, when he founded a Mac software and consulting company named bleep. He dropped out of Texas A&M University, where he studied computer engineering, to satisfy his entrepreneurial spirit. When he's not writing code, Tyler actively contributes to the open source community and his own blog, the Unethical Blogger. Plus, he has a killer virtual backhand with a Wii Tennis score of over 2300.
