I presented last night at Seattle Xcoders, first time in a number of years – last time was when I was still working for Disney. The presentation was a rehash of the talk I did at the Swift Cloud Workshop a couple of months ago, and sharing a bit of what I’ve learned from my bug fixingContinue reading “Wading back into the Cocoa Frameworks”
Ticketing system replaced and launched, I’m ready for a decompress. There’s pretty much no better place to do that, in my mind, than at WWDC in San Francisco this coming week. I used to send myself every other year. Strangely, I’ve been attending for over 10 years now. Seems odd that it’s been so long.Continue reading “WWDC 2010”
Gus, El Presidente at Flying Meat Inc., is looking for a full time Cocoa programmer to come work with him up in Everett, WA. Here’s the details: Do you love programming for the Mac and iPhone and think Objective-C is the bees’ knees? Â Are you sick of your boring 9-5 job and wish you hadContinue reading “Looking for a full time Cocoa programmer”
No secret, I prefer Mercurial, and I think pretty highly of BitBucket too, but a whole lotta folks are using GitHub, and the platform is pretty damn good for general project collaboration, especially for open source projects. The only problem, in my opinion, with GitHub is having to use git! I find it darned confusing,Continue reading “collaborating on GitHub”
Looking through a set of podcasts I haven’t listened to yet, I noticed that Matt Drance is up on IT Conversations. The show notes report that it’s a general mish-mash of topics – all around Cocoa programming. I’ll definitely have to check this one out this coming week on the commute into work.
Acorn 2.0 has been released – and be aware, it is Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) only! You can get a whole slew of details on Gus’ blog post about the 2.0 release of Acorn. I’ve been impatiently awaiting this day for a while. I promised Gus I wouldn’t talk about features or theContinue reading “Acorn 2.0!”
Rand’s post from last week was pretty darn interesting. For me, “your people” are the regulars from Seattle Xcoders. The bullet points really define it well. Just go read Rand’s post. Heh – and his blog, if you don’t already.
class-dump 3.3 is now available: A new version of class-dump is now available. You can download it from the links on the class-dump project page. It is built for Mac OS X 10.5 or later.

Seattle Bus 1.2.0 has been pushed up to the App Store for application review. This update changes out the underlying parser, allowing the application to use King County’s provided real-time data feed (http://trackerloc.kingcounty.gov/avl.jsp) instead of the one hosted by UW (http://mybus.org/metrokc/avl.jsp). While the MyBus.org site has been responding fine for the past few weeks, we’veContinue reading “SeattleBus 1.2.0 sent in for review”
Since I haven’t been able to get the site providing the data back online within the week, I’ve temporarily removed Seattle Bus from sale on the AppStore. I’m working on a “fix” (changing the data provider) now that will hopefully be available soon. I apologize for the trouble and annoyances. If you have the applicationContinue reading “Temporarily removed from sale”
