Objective Resource for Faster iPhone Development

I recently came across Objective Resource for developing iPhone applications that talk with a Rails backed website. According to the site, ObjectiveResource is an Objective-C port of Ruby on Rails’ ActiveResource. It provides a way to serialize objects to and from Rails’ standard RESTful web-services (via XML or JSON) and handles much of the complexity involved with invoking web-services of any language from the iPhone. I’ve had a chance to play with it this weekend and have found it to be pretty easy to work

What to Use to Post to Twitter

So I made some changes to Twitpress so I’m testing them to see if they work. I’m not sure if I should use this or Twitterfeed.?? I would like it to be a shortened URL, so either use tinyURL or some other service would be helpful. What does everyone else use? UPDATE: So I was just doing a search and found Twitter Tools from Alex King that looks to be promising! Guess I’ll have to play around with this idea for a little bit longer.??

My Setup and Software

I saw a post like this last weekend and thought that it’s time that I do one of these again myself. Everyone seems to change what they use every now and then, so I though by updating this maybe it would get other people to look at what they use and maybe make a post like this as well. What Hardware? Below is a picture of my desk. It’s not my whole desk, but rather the spot I use the most of. I try to

Ruby Vulnerabilities

An Apple Product Security technician has identified multiple vulnerabilities with Ruby, which if exploited could be used in denial of service attacks. It does not have to be just Mac OS X that this afects. It looks like it’s all versions based on the official post from the Ruby development team.?? To find out what version of Ruby you are using open up Terminal or your command-line prompt client and type ruby –version You should get something like this ruby 1.8.6 (2008-06-20 patchlevel 230) [i686-darwin9.3.0]

To busy to complete…

So I’ve been getting a little busy at work lately, and while I’d like to really take you guys through a ToDo list tutorial, I just don’t have the time right now to work on that, while learning Rails 2.0, and then working on getting a ToDo list app working as well.?? Rather than leave you guys high and dry without finishing this, I thought I’d show you this really cool open-source ToDo application that you can install for free!?? Check to FooToDo here!! I

Todo list application with Rails 2.0!

I’ve recently taken a new position doing Rails applications full time (which I’m definitely excited about) however, between myself and the other developer, we’ve decided to go right up to Rails 2.0.2. This of course did not fit with me very well because I haven’t done rails development full time yet, and what rails apps I have done were in 1.2.6 and lower. I haven’t been a good developer because I wasn’t paying attention to all the new features and how they work. Of course
