I’m personally excited about this and I’m hoping it starts a shift to a more polished style. Instead of the typical, here’s our guest, now we’ll talk for an hour.
I listen to a lot of podcasts, and noticed that some folks were appearing on a few of them. They would often talk about the same subject (a new startup they launched for example), but from a slightly different perspective.
After I noticed this, I tried to find other podcasts that these people appeared on. This turned out to be very difficult.
I decided to try and make this easier, and the idea for Interviewed was born.
This is such a great idea and a nice way of keeping up people you are interested in and seeing all the old interviews they’ve done. I’m also listed for the few podcasts I’ve been on over the years.
I’m still very much a beginner photographer but looking to improve. This post on creating better phone photos has a lot of inspiration:
Behind the emergence of a these incredible mobile photos are countless amazing photographers who – everyday – redefine and push the limits of this new art. And so – we asked the world’s best mobile photographers just how exactly they create art with their phones.
I had been waiting all day for this talk and at 2:50 p.m. I rushed into a room filled with six long tables. I took a seat on the front row so I wouldn’t miss anything.
Waiting to greet me was an index card, a pen, and a sticker. All branded with the speakers avatar. It was an impressive first impression!
I have followed Yitzchok Willroth, @coderabbi, over the past year on social media. We’ve had enough interactions that I consider him a friend, although never meeting in person. Anytime one of my friends are about to give a presentation I am nervous for them. I want more than anything for their talk to go well.
As I looked up to a small black and grey stage, I seen Yitz standing behind the podium. He was performing pre-talk preperations and getting his computer hooked up and microphone wired in.
He was dressed in a white button up shirt, black dress pants, and he looked a little nervous. As he wiped the sweat from his forehead, I knew the presentation was about to begin.
To be honest I wasn’t exactly sure what the next 45 minutes was going to be like. The title of the talk was “Talmudic Maxims to Maximize Your Growth as a Software Developer” which are foreign words to my vocabulary.
Less than two minutes into the talk, my anxiousness was quickly put aside. It was the best talk of the conference and it had everything a speaker needs. A story line, stage presence, and he kept the attendees listening intently to all the guidance.
The talk was not only for software development but for life itself. I believe the big takeaway is going to be different for each person, so I will not cover the presentation content. I am hoping this talk becomes the keynote at the next conference you attend. It was that good.
I feel like I got to see a rookie throw a touchdown on the first play of the first game. He gets it.
I was actually really nervous but had a great time. Go give it a listen and subscribe.
This is pretty genius really. I’m going to have to give it a try for my old snowball microphone.
A simple app isn’t simple by virtue of having fewer options, a simple app is simple because of usability. The fewer the options an app has, the more complicated it can actually become to use
Great tips that I want to keep in mind with the new Wardrobe Admin area.
A great graphic via mashable to keep in mind for building new iOS apps and for optimizing your mobile sites. I haven’t seen a plus in person yet, but being a short person this seems worrisome. The pictures I’ve seen make it look like an iPad mini mini.
Not only does Apple provide an API for interacting with the operating system and install apps, but they also provide an Objective-C bridge to work directly with native libraries such as Cocoa. This is HUGE.
I totally missed this announcement but indeed it’s very exciting and could be a huge step for bringing developers typically web only into true app development. Hopefully it gets integrated beyond just Automator.
