screencasting with ScreenFlow and VMware Fusion

I’ve decided to take a page from some of the open source goodies I’ve seen and start using screen-casting as a means of documenting and explaining some things at work. Most of what I do at work happens on Windows though – so I’ve arranged an interesting setup. I have ScreenFlow capturing my desktop whileContinue reading “screencasting with ScreenFlow and VMware Fusion”

Syncing data from your iPhone app to a desktop… and other “iPhone SDK bugs”

I was reading Paul’s post on iPhone SDK bug reporting and sort of pondering that list. I’m not sure I care specifically about a bug for being able to run a background application so much as I want to be able to get application events when my application isn’t active. At least for my needsContinue reading “Syncing data from your iPhone app to a desktop… and other “iPhone SDK bugs””

I’m not trying to resurrect it or anything – although I still think it’s form was nicer than Sen:te OCUnit that Apple adopted. (I really liked the macro mechanisms and the choice of phrases –Continue reading “UnitKit”

Xcode 3.0 overview

I gave the presentation to Xcoders group last night – a short overview of the new features of Xcode 3. If you get a copy of the presentation, you’ll need VoodooPad to view it. If you don’t already have it, you can get a free/lite version at http://flyingmeat.com/voodoopad/voodoopadlite.html. There’s a bit up on the Xcoders’s blog as well.

tweaking XCode build configurations (aka Info.plist is missing)

When I start a new project in XCode, it always sort of bugs me that so many things are tossed into the main project directory. I suspect I’m not alone there. To resolve that, one of the first things that I do is start organizing stuff. Two folders immediately get created: “resources” and “src”.
