Hello. My name is Janie Clayton-Hasz. This year I applied for the WWDC Student Scholarship through Apple.
This is a multi-part series of blog posts chronicling my experiences while going through this process, including the outcome and my thoughts on the process.
I finally got around to updating the DTRichTextEditor time-limited Demo for Version 1.5. The new version broke a few items in the Demo because of the introduction of the text attachments class cluster.
The Demo is available on GitHub, the only other ingredient you need is a time-limited binary build of the DTRichTextEditor.framework.
Over my iOS developer career so far I’ve had several people ask me in one way or the other if and how I would want to work for them. This includes several international corporations, though I’d prefer to not name names. The range of such questions ranged from asked if I wanted to join a specific team all the way to an acquisition-hire.
Just this morning I found this email in my inbox:
Oliver, would you prefer to be “consultant” or part of a team. Here is our vision, its [...]
I had begun to compose a lengthy e-mail, but my efficiency sense tingles when I pass a certain threshold. So I figure I want to document my thoughts on this question for future generations and interested readers.
Today I have for you two special goodies. I used the entire day today to put the finishing touches on two new components that you find released in version 1.4 of DTFoundation.
On a recent project I was fed up with having to deal with a SQLite database “by hand”. So I wrote a wrapper for it that allows you to interact with the database in convenient Objective-C, as well as perform queries on a background queue.
The second new project is what the general public has come to call a “Hamburger Menu”. This is the kind of side panel menu that you can see in many popular apps.
This weeks update to AutoIngest for Mac (a comunity-driven Mac status bar app for downloading sales reports) brings support for downloading from multiple vendor identifiers.
Your vendor identifier is an 8-digit number beginning with an 8. Usually you have only one, but if you – for example – move from an Individual to a Company Apple developer account, then your old ID is retired and you get a new one. There might be also other scenarios for people having multiple, now AutoIngest for Mac supports that.
I have two vendor IDs, one from my time as Individual and the newer one since I changed to a Company developer account. There might be other other reasons for having multiple vendor IDs, if you know of any, please let me know. I’m curious.
Now for this week’s update to AutoIngest for Mac I wanted to turn the plain text Vendor ID field into a token field like the Mac mail app has. Fortunately NSTokenField exists on Mac since 10.4 and today we shall explore its use.
If you always wanted to crash your MobileSafari and didn’t dare to ask, here’s a current way to do it. If you zoom into the right place on our Linguan app product page iOS terminates the app. Thanks to Oisin Prendiville for sending this in.
Of course I had to immediately file a bug report. It is slightly bit hilarious that Mobile Safari would crash on my own site. Looks like it’s somehow running out of “rpages”, whatever that means.
