About this Episode
Note: The first episode is available here, but unfortunately has pretty broken audio, so please don't listen to it first 😅
Welcome to Code Completion! We are a group of iOS developers and educators hoping to share what we love most about development, Apple technology, and completing your code on this brand new show!
Follow us @CodeCompletion on Twitter to hear about our upcoming livestreams, videos, and other content.
Today, we discuss:
• Finding your niche and the benefits in specializing when looking for new opportunities, and
• How beneficial would it be to consider the App Store as simply a provider, much like an ISP.
Also, join us for #CompleteTheCode and Compiler Error, two segments that test both your knowledge and our knowledge on Swift, Apple, and all things development!
This week's episode of Code Completion is brought to you by Mystiko. Check it out on the App Store.
This week's Compiler Error has a theme: Obscure Apple Products:
1 - A key player in pioneering the digital publishing space, Apple made several printer models in 80s and 90s such as the popular ImageWriter and LaserWriter, but they also made the Apple 410 Color Plotter, a printer that used a stylus along with a selection of inks to literally draw shapes and text on the page.
2 - Available for sale for just a couple years, iPod Socks were a series of pouches for iPods woven like socks, and came as a package with six colors: grey, orange, pink, blue, green, and purple. For a limited time, they were also available in human sizes at the Apple Company Store in Cupertino.
3 - Known now as a feature that allows videos to be quickly taken by pressing and holding the shutter button on modern iPhones, the Apple QuickTake was a line of video cameras that could be used tethered to a Mac, or on the go thanks to AA batteries.
4 - Released in 2006, the iPod Radio Remote was an attachment for then-new iPods that was shaped like a then-unreleased clip-style iPod Shuffle, that allowed compatible iPod users to use their iPods as an FM Radio tuner.
Your hosts for this week:
