Shaun Donnelly, developer turned manager turned developer with Indie apps on the side.

2/13/2023
Shaun took me up on a request on Mastodon to come on my podcast. We had a great conversation about how he ventured into management as a software developer. We also talk about how he got into software and iOS app development. Shaun took the React route. Start with web development, get started with React, progress into React native and then making the leap into native app development. Ray Wenderlich, now called Kodeco was instrumental in learning about iOS app development. You can get in touch with Shaun through Mastodon or his website. https://mstdn.social/@shaundonNice UX Design Newsletterhttps://codakuma.com/Some of the podcasts we mentioned in the episode: Under the Radar PodcastIt's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Podcast Episodes – The Always Sunny Podcast99% InvisibleEverything Everywhere Daily PodcastAccidental Tech PodcastSwift by SundellAdam's conference https://swiftleeds.co.uk/ Big shoutout to Dave Verwer and the Curated platform.

A book, an article, loads of SwiftUI

2/10/2023
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 positive, I wonder?
