David Smith recruited Gerald Wluka to code Raft-Away River for the Apple. Gerald was a student at Melbourne Grammar School, in one of DLS’s maths classes (that is how David was known at MGS). David learnt that Gerald was an Apple enthusiast and asked if he could do the work. Of course the answer was yes. The thoughts of a high schooler being paid for his hobby was too attractive – any hurdle could be overcome. Gerald completed the development in good time, but with him starting his last two years of high school he had to focus on school rather than developing software for Jacaranda. Gerald now resides in Silicon Valley and is running two software companies (2016).
