Giving Back by Podcasting

The Mac developer community is amazing. So many developers share ideas, advice, and even code that I felt immediately indebted to do this myself after being helped by so many of them.

Unfortunately, it's hard to share advice when you're not sure if you have any but after a couple years of coding Objective-C, the OS X language of choice, and Cocoa, the OS X development framework, I'm excited to become more like those generous code warriors.

With a lot of help from a very bright, young Mac developer, Danny Greg, my contribution to the community is a developer podcast that has just gone live. Check out cocoaFusion: and let us know what you think.

The goal is not for us to come across as "experts" in the field of Cocoa development but instead to share our struggles with this framework and solutions we've found. Hopefully, this will be a good start to giving back to the community that has given so much to us.


P.S.: I also have to give huge props to Scotty (a.k.a., Steve Scott) at the Mac Developer Network for introducing me to Danny and for creating such enjoyable podcasts that I wanted to follow in his footsteps. If you're a Mac developer and you're not signed up for MDN your a) insane, and b) missing out on a wealth of knowledge in a very entertaining format.
