Well I decided I would become an indie game developer! I mean who wouldn’t want to. So follow along and watch my journey as I share it with you every step along the way.

I have just finished this great book 2D Apple Games by Tutorials from the folks at raywenderlich.com

I have learned a ton from this book, but I have also realized I have sooo much more to learn.

I started planning out all the features I want for my game. Compose the music, create the artwork and of course code the game. …


A Portland Oregon Selenium Meetup Round Table Discussion

You may have heard that Xcode 7 is adding UI testing to the mix!

Like many people, we at the Portland Selenium Meetup have been wondering should we switch from Appium to Xcode 7 UI testing?

So we got some pizza (thanks Sauce Labs!) , we got some beer (thanks Crowd Compass!) and a little left over Bourbon from last month (thanks OSCON!) and wrote down our thoughts. Please join the discussion!

Appium- Can develop tests in most languages and cool ones like Ruby!

Xcode7- Record & Playback works well

Appium — Built in element inspector

Appium — Can be used with many device cloud farms

Appium — If you know selenium you know most of appium

Xcode7 — Swift looks awesome!

Xcode7 — More stable integrated environment — Unit Testing, Development, Xcode Server

Appium — Can scale to multiple devices in CI

Appium — An army working to develop solutions to fix Apple’s failures

Xcode7 — Is faster (I think we need a race)

Appium — Same environment & tools for…


a software engineer rant

I am not what James Whittaker says is dead.

I do not spend my day giving executives assurance.

I automate.

I automate everything!

I can read code.

I can write code.


a github super diff screen shotting machine

Do you ever find yourself opening 10 different browsers on 4 different machines just so you can see how a new static ‘marketing’ page will look or what has changed in each of these browsers?

Well I do, and I figured there had to be a better way. Two of my favorite things on the internet are github.com & saucelabs.com. I figured between these tools there has to be a solution.

SauceLabs has every browser known to man and you can select resolution, operating system and just about anything you can think of in regards to browsers.

Github has this…
