Reading Time: 1 minuteIt’s been well over a year since I last made a write up. In that time I’ve seen contracts and projects come and go.

Reading Time: 2 minutesFor some reason getting a grasp on ios auto layout programmatically seemed to be a bit of a challenge and most of the resources I found on it were scattered or not very good.

Reading Time: 3 minutesI’ve always been adamant about the fact that I have only so many working years in me. Maybe another good 30 years? Maybe only 20? Maybe 40?
