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 […]
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 […]
One of the fundamental mantras of software development is DRY – “Don’t repeat yourself”. It’s an important rule, because it allows us to save both space and time. Instead of rewriting a non-trivial algorithm, we use a method call, instead of correcting bugs in multiple places, we do it only in one. Would you ever […]
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.

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.
On October 16th I attended CocoaHeads, an iOS developer meetup that is organized every few months by Peter Robinett of Bubble Foundry and other volunteers. Every time it’s hosted at a different location. It was previously hosted at Spil Games, Xebia and NOS. This time it was hosted at eBuddy. The formula is simple: great […]
In this blog I want to talk about Pebble. A watch that can connect to your smart phone (both iPhone and Android) via Bluetooth to do all sorts of cool stuff a regular watch can’t do. Among the cool things you can do with it is install apps, which you can write yourself. As a […]
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 […]
