#Introduction 

I’m Joachim, a veteran programmer specialised in native iOS development over the last decade.

I recently got hired by Denmark’s largest bank to develop the best mobile banking experience on the iPhone.

My sparetime is spent with my family (wife and two kids, 12 and 14), restoring/building on our old houses and updating Deep Green (see bio). I enjoy high-end wrist watches and Glenn Gould when he plays Bach, and all the other nice things.

Imagine if the cheaper, feature-poorer iPhone XR were *smaller* than iPhone XS.

I use sets to signal that order doesn’t matter (and arrays to signal that it does): mastodon.social/@brentsimmons/

Hm, that was a reply to mastodon.technology/@trey/1006, but I added a CW (for lulz and giggles). But it broke the thread? 🤔

Rambling 

As my bio alludes to, I was all in on Lomography back in the days. Got the Lomo camera etc., but realised I’d much rather use my M6 for the same type of photography. That taught me to to point (from hip, ground, …) without looking through the rangefinder, and focusing on a 21 (ASPH naturally) or 35mm was just a matter of setting an approximate distance on the ring. Good times! Still influences how I take photos today.

Also - that mastodon client you’re writing is going to work with Markdown too isn’t it? Right right?

Hey, #Keybase users: If you'd like to see Mastodon support in Keybase (which is just *perfect* in a federated network to verify people) and have a GitHub account: make sure to voice your wish, +1ing this comment on the related issue. That might make it happen!

github.com/keybase/keybase-iss

For those interested, I've made my profile bio somewhat informative (now also with header image!)

Whoever is working on Mastodon clients, please don’t just force the Twitter model on to your solution. Not only is Mastodon different, a decade in we should be able to come up with much better ones.

Sincerely looking forward to the tsunami of Mastodon clients for iOS (and maybe macOS) that will inundate us in the coming months.

Somebody is hard at work as we “toot".

I hope we all don't give up on Mastodon in a week. It's nice here. 😄
