About four years ago I built and released my first open-source Cocoa project, PXSourceList. It’s amazing how different the Cocoa open-source community was back then compared to today – there weren’t many Cocoa projects open-sourced on GitHub1 and tools like CocoaPods didn’t yet exist. When building PXSourceList, I also stumbled across the then, relatively little-known documentation tool, appledoc2, which I used to document PXSourceList.
Taking a look at the README for the project at the time of writing, it’s hard to believe that the first line describes the project as:
A Source List control for use with the Mac OS X 10.5 SDK or above.
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend BACON over the past few days, coined as ‘The conference on things developers love’.
One of the things I loved about BACON compared to other conferences was how broad the spectrum of developers attending and the talks the speakers made were. It was nice to meet developers with other technical backgrounds aside from my own of primarily Cocoa and Objective-C.
