Persistence prevails: Dave shares his iOS developer journey
After watching Dave Jacobsen’s story on YouTube, I found myself asking, “When would I have given up if I were in Dave’s shoes?”
He shares about the sobering reality of how much effort and dedication it really takes to transition careers. But he also proves it’s possible if you persist!
I’m excited to share the story of how I became an iOS developer📱
No sensationalizing and no sugar coating🙅♂️
Just my honest story of trudging through 500 rejections.

CoreML brings the beauty of braille to the seeing
How cool is this? Aaron Stephenson is learning braile. He’s also a developer.
What does he do to check himself to make sure he’s reading things correctly? He trains a CoreML model to recognize braile letters and display them using augmented reality.
I’ve been learning Braille so like all software engineers I wanted a way to check my work. So I built an app using CoreML and Vision to find Braille. 24 hours and a few hundred annotations later here is the model in action. #a11y #CoreML #AR #Vision #accessibility #Apple pic.twitter.com/xgPuKxOBzA

Kent Beck on the goal of software design
The goal of software design is to create chunks or slices that fit into a human mind. The software keeps growing but the human mind maxes out, so we have to keep chunking and slicing differently if we want to keep making changes.

Ship something. Anything.
Perfection is overrated. Ship something. Anything. Then improve it over time!
For whoever needs to hear this! I can totally relate. Even if you get a grand total of 10 users. The learnings will apply for the idea that will get you thousands of users. Ship something, anything. https://t.co/Pv6qYM2ISJ
