#introductions I'm Kyle. 👋
iOS developer 📱 (now Android too actually, by accident; long story).
Started programming making simple games for iOS, then iOS jailbreak tweaks, then making apps as my job.
Love tech, programming, sci-fi, StarTrek (TNG 👍), Marvel, etc...
Also love Snowboarding and parkour.
I've been on Twitter for years (90k posts, mostly retweets). Was on mastodon.social but have moved here now.
Apple's documentation is pretty terrible nowadays, but I have to say the CIQRCodeGenerator - Core Image Filter reference is really good! Lots of information + example images.

"Cocoa is a “batteries included” platform. Out of the box, you’ve got frameworks for animation, networking, persistence, and everything else you need for most apps."
