As 2012 draws to a close people start to think about what they want to achieve in the following year. Whether that’s by making New Years Resolutions or deciding what goals they’d like to achieve in 2013.
Like most developers you sometimes find yourself stuck with a problem and you reach out to the internet to see if you can find a solution. More often than not that solution will be found on StackOverflow, a programming Q&A community. At least that’s often where I end up when searching a problem with some code.
This week I have been busy putting the final touches to the Buffer UIActivity I started way back in June at WWDC. Now that iOS6 is out in the wild I can reveal it. Anyone wanting to integrate Buffer support into their iOS apps can do so easily using the new iOS6 UIActivityViewController and the Buffer UIActivity.
I’ve been in Tel Aviv now for 2 weeks. When I arrived I couldn’t help but feel a tad uneasy to be somewhere that back in the UK is often shown on the news. News that never shows Israel in a good light.
From the bits of Israel I’ve seen so far, the people are really easy going, worries about the language barrier were quickly thrown away as most people speak really good English and walking down the street feels as safe, if not safer, than walking down a street in Birmingham or London.
Last month at a meetup in Birmingham there was a discussion about who’d you hire given the choice. Someone who has experience in the industry or someone who’s been at College/University and gained qualifications.
The outcome of the discussion seemed to lean towards experience being much more important than education when viewing a CV. I should note this discussion was regarding the Web/iOS industry. This is a topic close to myself as I didn’t go into further education myself.
