I’ve had this happen a couple of times now and the first time was a little worrying that I’d bricked my iPhone. Basically I was running an application on my phone via XCode and when rebuilding an updated version it failed with a “busy” error message. Stopping XCode and un-connecting my phone had no effect, the phone was stuck displaying the loading screen of the application and wouldn’t respond to any key commands. To fix . . .
I’m just looking at my post from last year “looking forward to 2013”! I’m still in a hands-on development role, but now in a different company. Many of my goals for last year are still relevant for this year. Time management has to be right at the top of them; getting the right work/life balance whilst doing a job you love is always difficult; even more so when there is just so much new cool . . .
2013 certainly didn’t turn out as planned, the less said about the first half of the year the better; so moving on (which I did!) In the second half of the year I joined a company which has managed to get me excited about and enjoying programming again! It has been an insanely busy 7 months into which (as well as the normal .NET stuff) we’ve managed to cram learning to program iOS and Android . . .
