Late Night Cocoa (015) : Sync Services with Marcus Zarra

In Episode 15 we get our first repeat guest as Marcus Zarra talks about Sync Services

Episode 014 Re-Released.

The audio on Episode 014 wasn't as great. Some people had complained my voice was to quiet, not something I get told very often :-) So I have relevelled it and posted it again.

I don't want to put it out as another episode on the feed as that will annoy people who didnt have problems. So if you struggled with episode 14 please re-download it.

Late Night Cocoa (013) : Sparkle , Design Patterns & UI Standards with Andy Matuschak

Traditional software update requires the user to do a lot of work. The problem with that is that users are lazy. In this episode, guest Andy Matuschak discusses the philosophy of auto-update, some ways to use Sparkle, and some hints about what's coming for it in the future. But who needs software update without a good project? Andy will discuss practices of refactoring and systems design in large projects, and some methods for quickly duplicating Apple's new wave of user interface stylings.

Looking to Purchase an Application

Hi Fellow Developers

As someone who understands how demanding bringing a release 1.0 product to market is I have decided to give myself a jump start by looking to purchase the source code and rights to an existing (or almost existing) OS X product.

Maybe you’re a desperate shareware developer looking to get away from a particular product or you have that second product your unable to maintain now your first is so successful or there's that product you have almost finished thats just sitting on the back burner and you never seem to quite get round to.

I’m happy to pay hard cash for it or negotiate a revenue based deal or a combination of the two. (I'll consider any other basis as well if you want to explain it to me).

Send me a private email on "steve at streambyte dot com" detailing the terms of your offer (not legally binding), and I will let you know if I’m interested. If the products not yet finished or released please be realistic about its current position. Please make sure you describe the architecture of the product i.e Cocoa , Carbon , ObjC, Java etc.

I promise not to divulge any specific details to the public about your offer.

Please feel free to discuss the merits of this approach to getting a product out on this site but don't post your offers here , use the private email address "steve at streambyte dot com"

So just in case you havent worked it out yet send offers to "steve at streambyte dot com"
