Learning iOS Development – Day 3 & 4: Lynda

Screen Shot 2012-01-15 at 8.50.05 PM.png

It’s been awhile, but I decided to take up this subject (yet again.) Although I do still have access to Safari Online, a friend of mine lent me his copy of iPhone SDK Essential Training DVD from Lynda.com for comparison. I spent the last two days watching the video. It’s just under 7 hours, but I spread it over two days because I was watching Tebow get his butt handed to him against the Patriots (sigh, I was hoping for more.)

The video in a word is Awesome.

Hackintosh Rig – Reloaded with Lion

Screen Shot 2012-01-02 at 7.57.44 PM.png My Hackintosh rig suffered a major outage thanks to my playing around. You would think I would just leave well enough alone since I need the machine to be online. I was playing around with some of the System Information to make it more custom and I ended up losing my sound kext. I thought it would be a simple re-install of the sound driver – however, it turned into a complete system rebuild (well, at least the OS) after I kept crashing the machine with the “backup” driver I had.

No worries, no stress at all – I hadn’t backed up in months, I was moving out of state, etc. Now it’s been close to 3 months without my machine and I’ve been making do on a 13″ Macbook. I was home for the holidays, so I figured I’d go ahead and try to bring the beast back. If you haven’t read my previous posts, here is my build.

Originally I used Kalyway build and over the years I eventually went to a vanilla OS install using LifeHacker’s process. Not to let any learning opportunity pass me by, I decided to upgrade to Lion and use a new method – UniBeast (with Chimera Bootloader.) Of course, all of this was possible thanks to the tonymacx86 site. Incredibly awesome sight/resource.

Learning iOS Development – Day 2: lite day…

ios5.jpgToday was a light day for learning. I only made it through a couple of more videos before I had to take care of other things. Strange, I sat down at my computer about 4 hours ago and did work for everyone else but me. I’ll have to make up for it tomorrow. I should be up to the point in the video training that I will actually be able to download and/or write some code. Can’t wait! But for now.. bed.

Learning iOS Development – Day 1: Seriously? Again?

ios5.jpgOnce again, I’m heading back into the development world. Over the last few years I haven’t done any serious development as I was more concerned about finding a gig and some stabilization in my life. Now that I’m in a gig and my life has settle into somewhat of a routine, I decide to start looking into getting back into some programming. I figure it’s better than spending my time watching TV or catching up on movies. Maybe I can come out of this little exercise with a published program. Who knows?

Multiline Signature with Good Techologies iPhone Application

Real quick post as I like to share the knowledge when I actually stumble across something I find interesting:

I’m lucky enough to use my personal iPhone to access Exchange email at one of my clients.  They use Good Technologies as a mobile solution for all smartphones aside from BlackBerries.  In any event, I’ve downloaded the latest version of the iPhone app (v1.9.0.516), and was having some difficulties creating a multiline signature block.  All attempts made my signature information show up on the same line.

After giving up for the weekend, I came back on Monday full of rest and coffee to tackle the issue again.  (I mean what could be more important than my signature block?) 

Then it dawned on me: use HTML tags.  As soon as I put in the appropriate <br /> code in the right spot, everything worked.

Good luck!
