Gorgeous reds appearing this past weekend. Fall is my favorite time of year, colors changing daily.
We recently started using a Bunn coffee maker. The design of the unit is really simple, no fancy controls to figure out. No time to keep resetting after the power goes out. No keeping track of how long we have left until it automatically shuts off. Just fill with water, turn on and in about 1 minute, a fresh pot of coffee. It’s the best morning brewer we’ve ever had.
The simplicity of Bunn is immediately apparent when opening the box. This is what we were greeted by when we opened the box.
The software we create, regardless of platform, should be this simple. Show me how to get started. No long and boring tutorials here, no complicated user on-boarding. I think we can all learn a bit about user experience here from a brick and mortar business.
I was out trail running with a friend this past weekend when we stopped because we had taken a wrong turn. We looked down and at the base of the tree we were standing next to, we saw this rock with a message written on it. It was funny because we were off course but also a nice reminder about life in general.
Spending the day using Swift; it’s the future for sure. Swift feels like a cross between Ruby and C#, in a good way. I love writing Swift.
I still love Objective-C but because it’s like C++ and not like Ruby. There’s a place for both for now.
I really like the idea of microblogging and controlling my own content. I’m going to give it a try. What do think about it?
