Visiting Darmstadt for the Autodesk Forge DevCon and Autodesk University Germany!

I just setup my iMac at work from scratch on Catalina. What could possibly go wrong?

“Building blocks for Augmented Reality - Newsportal - Ruhr-University Bochum”

It is nice to be featured on your universities homepage.

I just answered my first “support” E-Mail for one of my blog posts. That feels… interesting.

“How the spread of child abuse imagery online is changing the debate over encryption - The Verge”

Even though I don’t agree with all points presented an interesting read on encryption in social media.

I am keen to try Apple Arcade but I don’t have any controllers for my TV. I am definitely not buying a PS4 or Xbox Controller.

I think it is time to switch task managers.

Although the weather isn’t great, interrupting the lazy Sunday for a short run felt great.

What is worse: the fact that iOS 13 begs you to please by Apple Care+ on the main settings page or that the message isn’t even localized?

Waffles and ice cream.

A lot of work,

Looking through the new and updated Frameworks only confirms that this is a massive year. Not only in the big areas but also the little things. CoreNFC can now read and write all kinds of NFC tags, which is awesome.

Time to catch up with the State of the Union!

Shortcuts can run automatically when you arrive at a location, toggle settings like AirPlane mode, NFC or when you open a specific app.

You can scan a document directly from Files.app, it prompts you for a location to safr, and you can select “on this device” and create a folder there!!

Apple has full tutorials online for SwiftUI if you don’t want to wait for any sessions.
