My new project is finally officially announced. I’m developing the iOS and Android apps for the ARIV.
Admittedly I spent too many years in this biz in a junior dev mindset:
“A developer should JUST be expected to know how to write code, NOT be proficient with an IDE, NOT know/do Continuous Integration, NOT know source control tools...”
To an extent, I suffer to this day for not having evolved that mindset sooner.
Hearing more companies are looking for full-stack mobile devs
If you expect your mobile dev to design your database and write your web services, you’re an idiot
I can do it, and when you test with 1, 10, 100 users, it’ll work
Deploy to 10,000 users?
Most (good) developers are not jacks of all trades
Have each part of your system built by someone who specializes in that discipline
Otherwise, you get what you deserve
Today’s (and most off day’s) choices:
A) Do some indie dev
B) Do some dev for my employer (to get ahead on a new, important project)
C) Listen to some podcasts to try to improve in my language of choice (Swift)
D) Start learning a “new” language I’m interested in (Kotlin)
E) Do some dev work for my side job that I actually get paid for
This may be a record...
Kicking off cooking at 6:00!
First up, potato salad.
I know a lot of you hate it, but you’ve never had mine.
iOS, MacOS, Android software developer by day, and by night. Trying to come up with the next little thing and the next big thing all at the same time.
