Stefanie Herzer is the founder of heART Web Design was born and raised in Germany. She always felt a strong urge to be creative. She believes that we can only be exceptional at what we do – when we love doing it. Knowing what makes you happy is wonderful. Sharing your gifts with others is a great way to go about life.
Stefanie’s high school was one of the first to offer access to Apple II personal computers. She quickly discovered the creative potential that “bits and bytes” offered. Naturally she fell in love with it. After high school her mother convinced her to study computer science instead of attending film school. Due to the great success of her first major software application “Creator” she was pulled away from her university education. On her first trip to the US she had a chance to attend an early NeXT developer camp. NeXT’s technology especially the software was clearly ahead of its time. Only a few years later Stefanie was working for NeXT Computer as developer trainer in Europe. For many years she provided most of the German language developer courses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. From there it was only a small step for her to decide to take a software developer position at the NeXT headquarters in Redwood City.
At NeXT Computer Stefanie was part of the WebObjects team. WebObjects can be most easily understood as a predecessor of cloud based database services.
After Apple acquired NeXT where she was part of the WebObjects Team, Stefanie was responsible for the first port of the NeXTstep FileViewer. The last projects that Stefanie were responsible for at Apple were the MacOSX Address Framework and Contacts application.
After many years in Corporate America Stefanie began to realize that even a company as great as Apple did not enable her to be truly creative. After leaving Apple Stefanie Herzer Photography was born. We still offer photography services to complement your website.
