But who is Joanna?

She is the man who has always been by the side of Steve Jobs. Born in Poland in 1953, Joana studied anthropology and graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He later pursued a doctorate in archeology at the University of Chicago, which he failed to complete due to the Iranian revolution (he would have to go to Iran to take part in some excavations).

In the late 1970s he met Jeff Raskin, the computer expert who started the Macintosh project, with whom he had a conversation about how computers can improve human life. It was he who persuaded Hoffman to apply to work at Apple. In 1980 she started working on the project along with the founders, Burrell Smith, Bud Tribble and Brian Howard, as marketing officer. She later joined Jobs on NeXT.

In the 1980s she worked side by side with Apple co-founder Jobs, and was considered the only company in the company that knew how to interact with her. For two years in a row, he won the award set by the employees (which Jobs considered very funny) as 'the person who best resisted Jobs'. In 1984 she was the protagonist of the launch of the first Macintosh computer.
