Pinned toot

👋 I’m Ben Scheirman. I’m a software developer from Houston, where I live with my wife and 5 kids.

I run nsscreencast.com, a site that produces screencasts for iOS & Mac developers.

I also do software development consulting for iOS, Mac, and backends with Rails. You can find out more about this at ficklebits.com.

I do a couple of podcasts with friends (vibrato.fm and appdevdiary.com)

If neglected blogs are of interest to you, you can find mine at benscheirman.com!

We just published @tom7@twitter.com's @DeconstructConf@twitter.com 2018 talk, "Improper Hierarchy"! I want so badly to summarize it, but any summary would have to include spoilers, so you'll have to watch it! All I'll say is: it involves a modified NES running on the stage. deconstructconf.com/2018/tom-m

Also has a submenu which shows Xcode’s recent files filtered to only show your bookmarks (hiding noise from other stuff). itunes.apple.com/app/xclaunche

Very excited to reveal this year’s poster for LIV@UIPopTart@twitter.comDC!

Designed by artist and @AppCamp4Girls co-founder Grey Osten (@UIPopTart)—the poster pays homage to psychedelic designs of the 60s and 70s.

Click for a closer look and details of its design:

It’s recursive and smart enough to avoid Pod file projects/workspaces.

Also the command doesn’t hang on the terminal, just runs Xcode and then returns so your shell doesn’t have to stay open.

Dear conference proposal authors:

“Make X Great Again” isn’t a funny talk title. It isn’t ironic. It isn’t delightfully self-deprecating.

Stop it.

Just… Stop it.
