About Yellow Lemon Software

My name is Daniel Stødle, and in my spare time I'm an indie developer for Mac OS X. I've run Yellow Lemon Software since 1995, initially starting out by creating HyperCard stacks for System 7, gradually moving up the ladder to "proper programming" when I released Super Othello and Hyperspeed around 1998. I started out using a Macintosh LC, and after a while moved on to a Performa 6320 - which eventually found a home in an old Tandberg radio receiver/amplifier. Eventually a PowerMac G4 500 with dual processors became my main machine, and also my first computer to run Mac OS X. These days I do all my development on a MacBook Pro.

I've released a number of applications for Mac OS X. My first major Mac OS X application was Desktop Transporter, which after a while was picked up by the fine folks over at DEVONtechnologies who offered to distribute the application for me. About a year later, the first version of FolderGlance saw the light of day. FolderGlance is still under active development, with the release of version 3 in early 2011. Other highlights from Yellow Lemon Software include Screen Sieve, Universal Back Button, and the short-lived Spaces... Spaces... Spaces....

Yellow Lemon Software is based in Tromsø, a small city in the far north of Norway with a population of about 70000 people. The sun is gone for a few months during the winter, and the sun is always up in summer - at least in theory, though in my experience it tends to hide a lot behind clouds and rainy weather.

While running Yellow Lemon Software on the side, I have focused my efforts in academia. I earned an M.Sc. (siv.ing for any Norwegians out there) in Computer Science in early 2005 at the University of Tromsø, and followed up with a Ph.D. in Computer Science a few years later, also at the University of Tromsø. During my master studies, I spent a year at the Technical University in Karlsruhe, Germany, and during my Ph.D. studies I spent a year at Princeton University, USA. At the moment, I work as a researcher at the Northern Research Institute.
