How Many iPhone Developers Wear Wimples?
Among the community of iPhone developers it is a reasonably safe bet that not too many of them wear wimples and sing vespers on a regular basis, which makes Sister Catherine Wybourne (who tweets as @Digitalnun), Benedictine nun, HTML coder and now iPhone developer, something of special case.
The web has proved a bonus for the monastery where she is prioress of the Benedictine Nuns of Holy Trinity Monastery. The monastery runs a profitable web design and hosting service (“The only problem is, that everyone expects nuns to charge nothing. I have to point out that we’re not doing this to occupy our time.”), and she sees the iPhone as a great opportunity. Sister Catherine is developing two apps–one is for the general public, the other for parish priests (does that make it a B2B app?).
