AppForce1: news and info for iOS app developers

Weekly podcast discussing the latest updates, tools and events relevant to iOS app developers. I will also have a couple of reoccurring show sections to spread the word on fellow iOS developers doing fun and interesting things. On top of that I am working hard to do interviews with people relevant to iOS app developers. Think peers, teachers, bloggers who will have an open discussion with me so you can see what passion, hard work and a great community can do for your personal work and success.

I've been scheduling a few interviews again. It's interesting to see that people are often quite self-deprecating about being a good candidate to be interviewed on my podcast. People can always indicate why they are not exciting guests, but let's start at the opposite end. Think about why you would be a good guest for my podcast. And I notice that a lot. People often start with the negative. Why not start with the po...

It has been a while since my last episode. But no worries, I am not gone. January has been a super busy month and I have been working on some exciting things this month.

Counting down to Do iOS. At the time of this recording, I have almost two weeks to go, but it sure feels like it is happening tomorrow. Sending out messages to all attendees and speakers, making sure roll-up banners are ordered, putting together staff briefings for the Do iOS team and for the catering team, and preparing "filler" slides for when speakers are switching. Hotel bookings for team members. It is just a lot of ...

You might know him as TheSwiftNomad on Twitter. He is looking for people to take a look at...
