I do like however the paradigm of structuring code into a bunch of small, modular controller objects and setting everything up à la IBInspectable.
Or a mix of IBOutlet and IBDesignable, to be precise. Helpfully doing away with the confusion of separate UIs for those two.
The best thing about VR development is you get to reinvent all the UX from scratch lol jk Tilt Brush has everything figured out already.

Call me paranoid, but timing makes me think they were on a course to discontinue the Mac Pro until the uproar late last year.
RT @stroughtonsmith: I don’t think Apple was fully aware of the opportunity cost of ignoring the Mac Pro. It all came to a head last year, and it spooked them
RT @stroughtonsmith: Anecdotally, almost every Apple engineer I know seems to have a gaming PC w/ real specs. They all need a kind of computer Apple doesn’t make
RT @ulyssesapp: The Mac App Store is still not allowing to download version 2.8. We are in contact with Apple trying to resolve the issue. Sorry!
I don’t have the faintest idea how much time it takes to produce beta-ready drivers for a new GPU architecture.
RT @polotek: That includes web apps. But the web is the only platform that also has counter-pressure, forcing apps to consider bloat a top level issue.
RT @polotek: That’s a strategic advantage for the web. Twitter was actually incentivized to bring us a better mobile web experience.
I just spent ten minutes mesmerized by the trash fire that is Bing’s French-to-English translation on twitterꓸcom.
RT @ByRosenberg: Silicon Valley has crazy parking requirements that drive up housing & business costs. But so little transit there https://t.co/sXC2AEdirn https://t.co/Op7YkkUjZX
RT @jarkko: OH: “The “S” in IoT stands for Security.”
Added a user on my Mac so I could change my dev account’s expired credit card in iTunes. Couldn’t change it on appleidꓸappleꓸcom. Now I can.
Site did show my credit card number, but no way to change it. Really looks like an expired card makes “Edit Payment Info” button disappear.
Those challenges will be especially hard to overcome as long as Mastodon wants/needs to maintain compatibility with GNU Social.
RT @adrienneleigh: People make VERY DIFFERENT ASSUMPTIONS about “Twitter-type” things than about “email-type” things, and that’s REALLY DANGEROUS HERE.
Who decided that “desktop appears immediately but everything’s unresponsive for five minutes” was better than an OS boot screen?
I still remember when the idea of ads in the OS was outlandish satire.
When an app decides to fancify its UI it’s a coin toss whether the ‘back’ gesture will be a swipe right or down. Thanks a lot, Snapchat.
Between development issues, limited yield, and delayed launch, difference between iPhone 7s and anniversary phone is gonna be WAY over $100.
Infuriating that Twitter has stopped emailing you when someone likes or RTs one of your retweets, and Analytics ignores retweets altogether.
“Come and create live photo filters for us!”
Anyone who’s ever developed an app for a deprecated Facebook platform: 😶
Zuckerberg’s pseudo-AR-everywhere platform looks really cool but you better invest in external batteries.
Sure hope Apple is working on an AR framework, because there’s a lot of upcoming fun experiences we’d all rather not have locked to Facebook.
I really like my shimmering purple avatar in Oculus Home but it’s prob a good call for Facebook’s VR ‘Spaces’ to go with cel-shading.
Oh shit “so-and-so liked/retweeted your retweet” are still available on the site’s (and app’s?) ‘Notifications’ page. BUT I DON’T WANNA GO THERE DON’T MAKE ME GO THERE.
A personal+collab wiki with Squarespace’s ease of use 👍
I’ve migrated to Notion all the stuff that was scattered across Evernote, Trello and 2Do and oh what a glorious day this is.
I absolutely love how much freedom Notion gives you to organize your information. No exaggeration, I’ve been looking for this app for years.
RT @CaseyNewton: TWITTER: Editing tweets is too complicated to implement
FACEBOOK: Someday you will hear with your skin
RT @davegershgorn: So in essence, Facebook is using Snapchat’s avatar creation service against it. Can derivative works used for ML training cross legal lines?
The beautiful ‘but Apple would be able to do it like that!’ disease.
RT @botherder: Typical encrypted messaging fingerprint verification:
“Did you change phone?”
“Yes, I did.”
“Ah, ok then.”

RT @LaurenGoode: OH MY GOD CAN YOU IMAGINE ANSWERING THE DOOR AND SEEING THIS NO NO KEEP THE PACKAGE OKAY NICE DOGGIE https://t.co/3t987z5Mj2
Every time I update an app I think, damn I miss Obj-C, maybe I should… just wait a couple weeks for another reminder of why I quit.
