I don't like Facebook but....

In the summer weekends are for the garden.

In the winter weekend are for reading, Xcode and wondering where it all went wrong with my dog.

Two articles I thought were worth a share below.

1. http://m.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2014/02/the-quiet-upheaval-of-facebooks-new-iphone-app/283477/
Spoke about this app with a few of the team last week when I started playing with it. I don't do Facebook as such but do follow a lot of news outlets. The new paper app (court case pending) is slick. Very slick. Turns out some boys from Apple made it! Go figure.

2. http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2014/02/catch-my-diff-githubs-new-feature-means-big-things-for-open-data/283673/
We all know about Github on here don't we?

Anyway, two from The Atlantic for you today. Well worth a follow on Twitter or Facebook.

Other networks are available.

The computer is replacing the human.
Keep coding.
Keep learning.
Keep making apps.

Peace

I liked the article on Github… looks like some interesting things could be happening. And soon.

Cheers!

The critical issues with the swipe gestures were borderline insane. My thumb is not a "hook". I'm on Paper for my info feed. I'm on facebook to manage client accounts. Where this is going......

Very cool. Great city in that github repo ;)
Will be forking some of those to take a look.

Lots of apps are being released in relation to the Divvy bike sharing program in the city here. There was a great conference a few months ago where a couple of these devs showed off their work.

These guys are located in France but know faster than me how many bikes are left in the rack downstairs in my building plaza!

Can't wait until we thaw out and I can utilize some of these new apps!
