I occasionally create overview and tutorial presentations on topics I’m interested in. The currently available series are listed below.
This fourteen part series explores the new Apple TV released by Apple on October 30th, 2015. You’ll see how the new model’s hardware compares to previous generations and other Apple devices, and an in-depth review of everything that is different when developing tvOS apps when compared to developing iOS apps. While this series is aimed at existing iOS developers that are using Xcode and Objective-C or Swift to create apps, there is a lot of great information that will be of interest to anyone wanting to make Apple TV apps.
This five part series describes my experiences with memory leaks in the first app I developed using Xamarin. I had read lots of Xamarin documentation and thoroughly reviewed their “best practices” sample apps, and had even gone through their training and certification program before starting work on this app. Even so, I was in for a big surprise when I profiled my app before submitting it to the App Store. This series covers what I found, the resulting research I conducted, and ultimately how I fixed the issues and delivered a solid app that was approved by Apple on its first submission.
