It might just use you though

You might be having a bad day. We all do sometimes. Some people make videos on those days.

You’re a software developer and you can’t seem to think. That means you aren’t doing your job! Perhaps your language isn’t even performing simple Maths as you might expect.


Make it easy for yourself

What’s the problem

There are many issues in the world of programming. The most tricky? Probably naming — it’s a huge problem.

Other issues? Introducing complexity into your Application that can make it tricky to maintain, read or understand.

This article will go through some of the common issues! If you’ve problems with…

I’ve started doing this!

Remembering the format

You know how you can always do things better in life. Certainly you can. I’ve previously created a micro-project around downloading a JSON String and writing the result to the screen.

An essential data structure

An array is store of the same type of data. Now, not every programming language is zero indexed, but pretty much every one that you might use is. So if you’re not sure what a zero indexed array is this is the article for you! …

So be careful with this one!

I’ve previously written about defer which is used in Swift to clean up resources before exiting a given scope. Which is nice.

Oh, and there is also a video that you might like to watch about exactly this topic: https://youtu.be/Ni-sApIsNM8

However, it seems that defer works in reverse to the…

Considerations for Larger Applications

Some think of mobile development as Front-End Development, and developers working in the field don’t need to consider scalability factors in their development.

Rather than limiting your career in this way, it would be much better to think about how your software can be scalable and support users well into…
