Recently, I attended the Kotlin programming language conference, aptly named KotlinConf, to learn about the latest developments in the language. Naturally, my first idea for this blog was to list the top takeaways of the talks I attended. However, I thought it could be more useful for those who aren’t familiar with Kotlin yet to […]
Behind my laptop at 01:30. I needed to get this written down. In all details, I possible could remember. Normally I don’t make notes, I just playback the video in my head and write down the keywords and actions. But this one was different, I was so impressed, I wanted to capture it all. And […]
Last weekend I arrived home safe and sound, already missing San Francisco. I had a wonderful time there and I have lots to talk about, but there was one topic in particular I think was not highlighted enough. That’s why I want to discuss it here. It was discussed in the following talks during WWDC: […]
Hello again from San Francisco! I just came back from the conference after attending it for the third day in a row! I have seen many interesting talks so far ranging from Swift to WatchKit and UI design. There is so much to talk about, but in my previous blog entry I could only cover […]

In primary schools, classrooms are filled with just a couple of PCs in […]
To continue my previous blog, iOS Development Tips & Tricks – Part I, in which I explain what tools I think are best to use for iOS development, I want to dive more into the actual code and tell you about my most used and therefore favourite frameworks in iOS.
As you might know, I am very fond of developing apps for the iOS platform. I started back in mid-2009 by trying to create an app for the Dutch Lowlands festival but I unfortunately failed to make the app a reality. I didn’t care because now I learned how to write iPhone apps! After that […]
Better late than never, a blog about iOS 7! I want to talk about some different subjects concerning iOS 7 both from a user’s as from a developer’s perspective.
If you haven’t already you should all watch Apple’s WWDC keynote that was streamed live from San Francisco earlier this week; some really interesting things were announced. At least that’s how I see it and in this blog entry I’ll give you my thoughts on some of my highlights, but there were so many small […]
