Progress Update

Published on Fri, 21 November 2008

Its been quite some time since my original post soliciting ideas for a Mac OS X application to develop. Since then I decided to heed the advice I’ve read in several places and to just implement something simple that I want. That ended up being an audio file splitter. The app is currently nicknamed Chopper, which aside from the obvious cutting meaning also has a bit of meaning in Australian culture as a reference to Mark “Chopper” Read.

In July I also changed jobs. As part of accepting the new role I asked to work a four day week, with the intention of dedicating the fifth day to Mac development. A day a week turned out to be too much but they did accept a day a fortnight, written into my contract, so I always get it.

The todo list is still quite large. I will continue plugging away and one day it will be ready. In the meantime I’m aiming to post more frequent updates on this site and maybe cover some of the things that I’ve learnt such as unit testing Cocoa classes.
