On August 22, Mike won the 2010 iOSDevCamp Accessibility Award for his “Accessible Table View” open source library.
Mike developed the library as part of the iOSDevCamp’s annual hackathon, in which individuals and teams spend a weekend developing special software projects. Mike’s award-winning entry is a software library which can be used to add accessibility features to any iOS application that uses table views. These features can help visually impaired users navigate long lists of items.
The library also uses language detection and iOS’s 4.0 support for accessibility labels in different languages to automatically provide accessibility information in languages such as Greek, Russian, Japanese, and English.
