(Via Manage This.)
Jim posts a pretty cool article about the Web 2.0 Conference going on now in San Francisco, and the designs of the free stuff. Well worth clicking through to read.
Click through and go watch it. Yes I do need to work out more.
Interview with Extensis software engineer, Lucien Dupont
This Wednesday CocoaHeads Portland will meet at 6pm at Extensis in downtown Portland.
I’ll be giving a small presentation on NSOperation and NSOperationQueue, two really useful classes that are available in Leopard for doing background operations. They are particularly important in todays’ day and age of multi-core Macintoshes, and useful for doing background processing in a nice manner on an iPhone or iPod touch.
5:30 pm – snack and chatting before we start
6:00 pm – Q&A Session (bring your Cocoa questions)
6:30 ish – Presentation on NSOperation and NSOperationQueue
7:30 ish – finished, hang out time, show cool things time, show iPhone apps??
Feel free to arrive at 5:30 pm for some snacks and chatting before we start up.
