Aron Nieminen is a Mojang employee who was in charge of Minecraft - Pocket Edition's development[2] from its conception[3] until 13 December 2012, when Jens Bergensten took over development.[4] He also worked on Scrolls, and together with Daniel Frisk, he developed Pi Edition. Aron still works with Johan Bernhardsson and Tommaso Checchi on Minecraft's Bedrock codebase.

Aron has been known to be quite silent, especially when it comes to the internet. He currently does not maintain a Twitter account.[2][5] Notch describes him as "Very bright".[6]
