Learning Xcode 5 as a Designer

Probably the best Xcode guide (http://bit.ly/1eFnykw) I've seen on getting your hands dirty with Apple iOS UI prototyping and making the most out of it as a designer, before handing your project off to a developer. Well worth the 10 minute read!

Designers can really be obsessive about their pixel-perfect layouts (and so they should be) but - something like that is usually enough to drive developers into early retirement :) Xcode Storyboard however looks like a powerful way to keep both sides doing what they do best.

Whoa. This is the best TED talk I've seen in a long time, and I found it accidentally. Please, watch this.

(There is a TEDxGoldenGatePark???)

Edison was better at marketing and commercially-minded, also evil by comparison, and drowned out Tesla. Tesla did not 'invent' x-rays; they were discovered by Roentgen and actually Edison invented a lot of technologies around them, like fluoroscope, intensifying screens, and many others.

How to Learn Anything

"The major barrier to skill acquisition isn't intellectual... it's emotional." An excellent reminder of how easy it can be to learn a new skill. Kaufman says it only takes 20 hours!

Update: I'd like to add a counterpoint to balance Kaufman's message. I love his talk and it feels intuitively true to me, but there's also another side to the story.

Sometimes it's more fun to learn inefficiently! I love leisurely learning, like following tangents or indulging in reading too many books. :) Every field of study has its own culture and community, its own legends and weird trivia and rich backstories. Exploring and immersing yourself in those strange new cultures is half the fun!

So on top of those 20 hours focused on efficiency, I think it's just as important to have at least a few hours of fun, inefficient, purely exploratory learning.

And unlike what Kaufman says, I think feeling stupid and incompetent is actually the best part! Being a complete beginner at something is a bit like being in love for the first time; everything is completely new, your perception is heightened, and those first experiences are more likely to become lasting memories. And since complete beginners are guaranteed to be stupid and incompetent at first, there's absolutely no pressure!

As for the frustration of learning something completely new, I say embrace it! Frustration is just the build-up to the dopamine rush of the magical "aha!" moment -- you know, when things just "click" and everything suddenly makes sense. It's a rush, isn't it?

And that's my favorite thing about learning: you'll never run out of those "aha!" moments, because there's always something new to learn!

Public service reminder that the sun is not at the center of the universe and is actually moving.

Of course not, silly, the Earth is. And it has been since it was created a few thousand years ago.
