A quick tip for anyone that uses Windows and Chocolatey, if you want to upgrade everything installed at once then try using choco upgrade all -y

I’ll say it, how incredible are the new Microsoft surface devices. They really have found the right home for that lineup and the value for money is pretty darn good when you look at bang for buck. If I didn’t have my iPad then a Surface book is what I would go for.

Some late night weekend fun playing and streaming Warframe on the PC.

This is one of those days where I started writing a tutorial and am now so deep in how to explain a complex thing in simple terms that I might actually of confused myself at this point. And I already knew how it worked LOL

Lately I have noticed a change starting to creep into my thinking when it comes to making apps for personal use that might end up as projects for others to use. Now I ask myself, should I make this native or a Web app and just use it there? Funny how things go around and around.

UIBuzz Podcast Episode 1 - My iPad Podcasting Set-Up (Format test)

I know what you are thinking, this is the same episode as the last one? That is true and yes it is intentional. The reason for this is I can only refine my process of creation by testing it.

In particular the use of chapter markers in an episode, so hopefully I can learn from this and beg your forgiveness for the repeat.

So I subscribe to both Apple Music and Spotify, but I have to say spotify’s station app nails it for me everytime I go with it’s suggestions. Maybe I’ve just not given Apple enough data?

Twitch prime bundle for Destiny 2. You had me at S’Mores emote, but I stayed for the ship.

What a week, finally the weekend is here and it’s time to hang up the coding hat for a little while and break open the fun-tertainment hat.

If you are a gamer and like FPS (first person shooters), you may of tried or do not even know about Warframe, it’s free to play but can be a nightmare to understand at first.

This playlist by @BBKDragoon https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRbxjtNC1lOh1x2Q6JpDiN4mvezhAfntS answers everything, I cannot recommend it enough.

New SwiftUI video available to Patreon subscribers. www.patreon.com/pwcom

Yep it took a while but I have finally edited and published the next video in my SwiftUI series. Let’s build some models ready for data.

OK this is the must watch YouTube playlist for anyone that wants to get the most out of Ferrite for the iPhone and iPad. I learned so many things in just minutes that I never even noticed were in the app.

Hey iPhone / iPad app builders it’s 2020. Make a landscape version of that app already! Just saying :)

The Welcome Episode

It all starts with nothing, or in this case an episode zero. Something that is almost the birth cry of every podcast.

So in this short introduction I will say a little about who I am, what I do and what this is all going to be about.

The short version, Web and App development. Gaming, design, user interaction and producing content in many forms including how I make podcasts and videos to share with the World.

Yep you noticed, well done. I changed the site name from Peter Witham to UIBuzz as that is my domain. I’m also updating some of the branding in preparation for trying out those microcast features.

Let’s get ready to talk!

Spent some time processing the last photos I took before the lock downs, the idea is to show the effect that our current situation with Covid-19 is having on the populous.

Unity event system for broadcasting and listening is a great way to not have a bunch of references between gameobjects having to be set up. I have to admit if it wasn’t for me using this approach in Flash for so many years and now JavaScript and Swift, I’d probably be lost.

Paying the price of procrastination, it’s been a while since I worked in Unity & wrote C# code.

I’m having to look up the most basic of things to remind myself how to do them. Lesson learned, don’t leave things too long before spending a little time with them.

SwiftUI and State Programming

Just finished streaming another coding session.

SwiftUI and State is the problem of choice to solve this time, it actually turned out to be less code than I thought, even though I did screw it up a bit at first. But hey, I’m learning SwiftUI just like everyone else.

It says mature audiences, but I promise I was not driven to swear in this video when my code did not work :)

Fridays feel really weird at this point, normally you get excited because it’s the weekend. But right now all the weekdays and weekends just blur into one when you work from home and stay at home.

I’m making the most of it though with new videos and blog posts.

I have to say, I’m rather liking the newer Microsoft Edge browser on Windows, Mac and even iOS. It is working rather better than Safari is for me right now on macOS 10.15.4.

Never thought I’d be saying I like a Microsoft browser again, well done on turning that one around and using a better engine!

Twitch.tv desktop streaming app testing on Windows. It is not as fully featured as say OBS or Streamlabs but when it comes to getting you set up easily without lots of math and settings, they nailed it.

Here’s a highlight from tonights World of Warcraft stream. I went with all the default settings except for the audio levels that needed some adjusting.

Darn you social distance

Today might be the first time that quarantine started to get to me, the weather outside is great and these four walls are starting to get smaller by the day, this is all starting to feel an awful lot like a Twilight Zone episode.

I’m thinking I need to sideline my personal projects for a couple of days. Once my work day is over I need to just kick back a bit and go with the flow to recover/discover where my energy went.

Hang in there folks!

Updated Unity and dusting off some game projects, it’s been too long and I need to keep my brain sharp stuck in isolation is making it way too easy to get lazy.
