Swift and its Day-to-Day Problems

I recently got back into Mac development in my job (which by the way makes be incredibly happy, but this is another story). I get to work on a cool project for which I decided to go with Swift as the development language. I’m a long time Objective-C user and know a lot of amazing stuff you can do with it. I admit that I might have done some things in the past that might make some people out there very anxious, but that’s how the Objective-C world rolls ... [Read More]

We need to slow down

I get it. Apple blew it! The keynote was lame as always and there was not a single awesome new thing announced. Or… was it? I thought so too! I can not remember when I was that disappointed of a WWDC keynote before.

WWDC 2016 – Apple is different

At the end of today’s WWDC keynote Apple made it clear again, that all those shiny (useless?) so-called „AI“ features everybody is talking about these days are possible without knowing every single detail about their users.

Das meiste ist Liebhaberrei, was bei rauskommt, weiss man aber nie. Softwarequalität ist auch noch ein Thema, wir werden philosophisch mit Swift und denken über die Welt der Indie Entwickler nach ...

NaNoWriMo Day 3

Now I understand why it is hard to get the 50k done in one month. Yesterday everything seemed pretty easy, the words just appeared on the screen. I had an exhausting day at work today, and now I’m kind of tired. I can’t focus on my story, trying to get into the writing flow now by writing this post while I’d much rather would lie on my couch and sleep. On the other hand I really want to know how my story is going to look like ... [Read More]
