I created a small time lapse the of the construction of set 75099: Rey’s Speeder. Due to the low difficulty and small number of pieces, this set was constructed rather quickly…hopefully I will get some more time to put together the Millennium Falcon or the Tie Carrier.
For an online course homework assignment, it was requested that I interview a couple developers (luckily I was able to interview a few of my friends) using a specific set of questions (I also had the option of adding more questions yet I wanted to keep the questions simple as I knew my friends were busy).
Here is the list of questions:
My first friend and coworker that I interviewed was Ilin. He recently started with us and I have already worked on a couple of projects with him. He was initially surprised that I am asking him these questions and his unease was put to rest once I explained what the responses were being used for.
Without further ado, here is my interview with Ilin:
Interviewing Ilin was a blast as he always has a sunny disposition and always wants to help…if he doesn’t know the answer, he will look it up and share his findings with the team.
The second developer I interviewed was Sebastien. His disposition is a bit more serious and his responses were much more terse as can be see in the responses he provided to me.
As you can see, this interview was a bit different as Sebastien’s personality was unique and different form Ilin’s. Both provided some great answers that will hopefully help me become a better developer later down the road…most of it does depend on my interest and capacity to learn!
My buddies released episode 52 of the Deconstruct podcast…sadly I wasn’t part of this but they can handle with out me (Thanks Patrice and Ben)!
The Japanese have some interesting cartoon characters in their country and Mameshiba is one of them. So, what is Mameshiba? It is a combination of both a soy bean and a dog. They released a little game for iOS that allows you to catch all the characters in the Mameshiba universe and each has this utterly cute saying. This was one of the more interesting quick reviews I have created just due to the type game and the music and soundeffects that are present.
Back in the dark ages of iOS, I used to utilize the Notes app for all of my note-taking needs for meetings, jotting down important tasks, etc. The application became a repository for much vital information yet it was lacking so much functionality. Enter Drafts, a supercharged version of the Notes application. Not only does Drafts allow the user to sync their documents via CloudKit, it also allows you to quickly jot down notes and then use actions to send the documents to different applications on your iOS device. For example, I took some notes during a meeting and now I need to send them out via email. I would click on the action menu, choose the Email option, and Drafts opens up the Mail application on my iOS device and populates the body with the notes I have taken. Drafts has a plethora of different ways of reaching out to other applications and even syncs the notes between different iOS devices utilizing the Simperium service.
Not only is the app a very helpful utility, the developer is very responsive and continues to improve upon the application as new iterations if iOS are released and new feature requests are submitted. The bottom line is that is app rocks and has had a spot on my dock ever since the application was released. Keep up the good work Agile Tortoise!
As you know, when running your business, time is money. This week’s pick is a tip that will save you, our awesome reader, a bit of time when resizing multiple columns inside of a finder window. To resize multiple columns at once, you will need to be in the column view (by clicking on the 3rd little view near the top left of the finder window or pressing CMD-3) before you can perform the task. Once you are in column view, hold down the option key, click on the edge of a column (see the attached screenshot for details on where to click), and drag to resize. Once you are done resizing the columns, let go of the option key and the edge of the column and, similar to magic, you are finished!
As more and more users flock to content management systems like WordPress (I personally utilize this CMS for my art business’s storefront), more and more business professionals need to update their blogs on the go. You might have an important event that needs to be publicized as soon as possible or you want to take advantage of some down time to update the information on your site. At first, the WordPress mobile application wasn’t that great due to a lack of features and stability so I only used it for. It has come a long way, though, and now I don’t know how I was updating my blog without the application. The universal WordPress mobile application runs great on both your iPad and iPhone and allows you to manage multiple sites’ comments and blog posts, check on a site’s statistics via JetPack, and easily access the admin module if required to make changes that are not available in the application itself. For users of 1Password, the WordPress mobile application integrates 1Password for easy vault access. Best of all, this application is free download making it a great bargain. Happy posting!
I have been searching for a great, portable bluetooth keyboard for a while now and ended up purchasing the iWerkz Bluetooth Keyboard due to its portability, price, and ability to connect wirelessly to my iPad. The keyboard folds in half and fits into a small case that doubles as a stand for either an iPad or iPhone as needed. Due to its minuscule size, it doesn’t take up as much space as my Logitech K760, with its photovoltaic panel, in my bag. The iWerkz keyboard charges via a microUSB cable that is included with the device. All in all, I love this keyboard and it has made my iPad and iPhone even more powerful when I need to type fast!
I have a need to track a lot of deliveries that are incoming and outbound and needed an applicatio to consolidate tracking information for all of the different services that are utilized by my business and by the likes of Amazon, Apple, etc. My go-to app to keep track of all the deliveries is the aptly named Deliveries by Junecloud. I am able to enter my tracking numbers and it automatically detects the service via the number I entered. There is also a widget(http://junecloud.com/software/mac/delivery-status.html) available for free where you use Junecloud’s free sync service to sync the information between devices.
All in all, Deliveries is a well designed app that does one thing very well: track my deliveries!
