Grab an early bird ticket here: http://t.co/Z6NjcTAKp0@ratkins Yes, I mean those, but complicated by jumping back to a specific controller. Wrote code one year ago, took me a while to remember.Reversing segues in iOS is terribly convoluted.

Retweeted by Matteo Manferdini@sla_shalafi Well, at least you actually do that! :D@sla_shalafi That is exactly the email I was talking about. It looks we are in the same spam list.Want to help people? What about actually doing it instead just saying you like doing it?Since business is helping people, many seem to include "I like helping people" in their description. Tip: everyone says that, nobody cares.@sla_shalafi My favorite pastime.Recruiters, do your job. Which is not firing the same email to hundreds of email addresses you somehow acquired. That's spam.I don't mind recruiters contacting me for iOS projects. But I do when they write me for jobs in other countries on stuff I don't know.I AM GOOGLE. I DO NOT SPEAK AT SMALL EVENTS.
