Understanding the core architectural principles of iOS development with a practical example: http://t.co/9vOA3qIeSy@jamesthomson didn’t you just suggest that, though? https://t.co/gT0ugG3pjbMeanwhile, in Startupland's Renaissance 2.0…. http://t.co/wPQtCqrtgg

Finally put iOS 9 on my iPad to test. The lowercase/uppercase keyboard thing is driving me nuts already. Unnecessary and disorienting.
Retweeted by Matteo ManferdiniI feel like every VR developer is looking at the cover of Time and thinking “well, I guess I could always get into making phone games?"
Retweeted by Matteo ManferdiniNo matter what you do, there are always going to be people better at it than you are. And that’s okay. Doesn’t mean you should stop, either.

I'm also preparing a big new module for my iOS course on delegation and table views. That will take a bit more to be ready though.I just finished writing a ~2000 words article on view controllers communication. Hopefully it will be out next week.Reminder: Apple's strategy is to grind down the cost of *all* digital content to ZERO. Apple is a hardware company that encourages free SW.
