      Every time I have to deal with iTunes Connect I again realize how terrible it is. All day getting completely useless error responses, is there some reason uploads get rejected but the error can't have anything useful in it

              @clarkgoble agreed! The watch has been worth every penny to both my wife and I. I wouldn't go back to not having one, that doesn't mean it has to be useful for everyone on the planet @johngordon

                  @mgrimes plus there's a good chance and language they do end up using is actually written in C or C++, knowing how C works can greatly inform understanding of higher level languages. @dtk @33mhz @hybotics

                    @whoisashygirl in the modern world of DLC for everything it pays to wait anyway, half the games I do pickup to play I get after all the DLC is out and bundled in, rather then being buckled and dimes for the whole game @33mhz

                        @33mhz this mirrors my experience, I still play a lot of games, but life now means I'm frequently a year or more behind the new stuff. And that's just fine @whoisashygirl

                            @jws mind you, I've found a lot of places say they do "scrum" but don't come anywhere close in actual practice, if they did my opinions of scrum might be different, but I've not found places unable to do kanban @mgrimes @rabryst

                              @mgrimes the unfortunate side of this is that frequently companies want accountability on the devs, but none on the management who force things into sprints despite devs saying no ;) @jws @rabryst

                                @mgrimes I've found that scrum always seems to become so much about process it forgets the work. Places I've been using Kanban have always been far smoother development. As a worker I use whoever I'm told to, but kanban is preferred by me @jws @rabryst

                                  @jws personally I'm in my own project right now, plenty to do and making sprint dates, but I find kanban allows mug easier prioritizing than scrum @rabryst @mgrimes
                                  savaran
                                    @jws No, what ends up happening is priorities will change mid-sprint, earth ending problems from above, and so things get forced in and bump the work scheduled for a sprint. But the dates are fixed for the sprints once started, so the process fails.

                                      @jws @rabryst @mgrimes I imagine it's not at every place, at my current place the scrum locks in the sprints so much we can't then grab things in the convenience of kanban style

                                        @rabryst @mgrimes I prefer kanban to scrum by such a huge margin, wish I could get my employer to see the light

                                          Text input on tvOS makes me a super sad panda as a developer. What a pain to do anything with
