WWDC 2012 – keynote

hsoi blog, talk 0 Comments

I’ve been an Apple Developer for… too long. 🙂 Attended many WWDC’s in my past, but this year I opted out because of other priorities. But of course, I paid attention to the WWDC 2012 keynote and have some thoughts on it. First, I do like the direction Apple is going with the MacBook Pro “retina display”. They are pushing …

Additional Review Time

hsoi blog, talk 2 Comments

Just got a new email from Apple saying “Your app requires additional review time”. That’s a new one on me. But it’s not a new one in general. Google turns up a lot of people getting them. The guess seems to be that the reviewer is kicking it up the review chain to have a supervisor or someone else look …

But most follow up by asking me to bring it to Android. There’s no question that’s my #1 request: bring …

Updated the back-end code that runs the Hsoi Enterprises website. All seems to be good. I also just submitted a bug fix update for kwikkEmail to the AppStore. I’ll post it here when it goes public! And now to get back to the PracticeDeck. I recently upgraded my source code server and um… have to get a few things fixed …

Ruby

Some years ago I opted to give up on Perl and learn a new scriping language. My choices were Python or Ruby. I went with Python because, at the time, it appeared to better serve the needs at hand. I also appreciated Python’s desire to be clean, readable, and maintainable, something Perl seems to take pride is not being. Or rather …
