I’m on GitHub

No Comments

It toke a while to convince me to start using GitHub, but a few days ago a friend finally convinced me. I already published a few projects there and intend to publish a lot more. I will stop publishing open source projects on this blog(at least for now). Anyway, go check it out!

Fuck the clueless

No Comments

Rainer Brockerhoff used to tell that being clueless makes you get no answers for your questions. In the beggining, I didn’t understand why. Today I’ve finally figured out what a true clueless person is. And I’m talking about a person who has this word tattooed in her forehead.

I was trying to get some good reputation answering questions on Stack Overflow and a guy asked a question about getting information displayed in a custom way on a UITableViewCell. I told them to subclass it and add four UILabels to it. Problem solved, right? Wrong! The guy asked how they should do that. Well folks, I’m not sure if I’m talking about a guy who doesn’t know how to do that. What I know is that they wanted me to do the entire work for them, so they would just copy and paste the code and it would work like a magic. Yes, magic! No work at all. “Let me just get someone to do the work for me”.

Yeah guys, this is THE way to not get your questions answered. When asking something, try to learn from your question. Trying to get other people to do the work for you will not work. I recomend this great article by Matt Gemmell.

Rainer, you were right.

My newest project

No Comments

Hello friends, I’m here to tell you about my newest project. It’s called Sensitive Code, and is a blog about programming. I thought it would be a great way to get some visibility, so I started this blog. The next steps are to write a lot of posts and get some people to write with me. Go check it out!
