πŸŽ™ Podcasts

A medium to share, create and talk.

Podcasting is another interesting medium for me to share what I’m up to. So I’m pretty excited to get these out to you. As time passes I’ll probably find my groove and go from there. Enjoy.

Abstract Development

A personal journal where I talk about things I’m working on, the up and downs of freelancing and finding more independence.

πŸŽ™ #38 - Torn.

Abstract Development

Wait… this is not episode 36… it’s 38.

Ah yes, the world is an interesting place... and so is developing for the big bullies with native apps. So I am torn if I should continue with it. Is it worth it? Probably not...

"Safetyism"... no thank you!

I move onto working on the Micro.blog for Android app and enjoying working with Manton on it.

I reveal my word of the year...

To finish I give a quick update on Sublime Ads, now that we passed 1 year since launch.

Oh and we have a bit of ambient sound of rain in the background, so if I sound weird... it was raining in my podcast studio.

Thanks for listening.

πŸŽ™ #37 - Let's get this year started.

Abstract Development

Ah yes, it's the new year. The year of possibility and perhaps for people to start liking each other again? (please). Oh wait, this is not what I'm talking about.

I touch on the official Micro.blog app, for Android, I am working... and how happy I am with it. Will it replace Gluon? I don't know.

Sublime Ads turns one year old (from the public release). It makes zero money right now, but that's fine with me.

Then we go deep into my brain about Gluon... nah, not really... but I also mention it and my plan for that. No promises.

Then I start rambling about new years resolutions, nature, frogs mating and living in a sandwich.

Happy New Year everyone ✌️❀️

πŸŽ™ #36 - How I Podcast.

Abstract Development

I share how I podcast in this mini episode. You'd think I had it all figured out.

Also have problems saying the number 36. Blame the lack of liquid (coffee).

πŸŽ™ #35 - Don't let anyone get in the way.

Abstract Development

Sharing is caring, right? Yeah. I had some bad interaction with someone which brought me down.

I was put off from sharing more and just staying quiet... do what I do.

But it didn't feel right, after all, no one should make me feel that way.

A short episode to talk about that.

πŸŽ™ #34 - I was in a weird place

Abstract Development

Yes, here I am again after some months of downtime. And yes, I probably get all the months wrong in the episode.

A quick update on my relationship with Micro.blog, what I'm working on... and the lack of updates - thank you screenshot crash on Android.

Diving into hybrid app development... liking it.

I realised that recording at home is somewhat difficult. So I'm back in the car with my trusty phone and terrible acoustics.

Our daughter started school, so it's all new to us. Spending loads of money.

My reasoning for not recording, getting into a weird spot. Embracing the colder climate and days.

I tease my winter plan for Sublime Ads and all the things I am working on.

πŸŽ™ #33 - Welcoming Micro.blog.

Abstract Development

Ah yes, I finally reveal what I wanted to reveal. So here it is.

Looking forward to this relationship so much and can't wait to work on it more and more.

And don’t worry, Gluon is staying with me!

πŸŽ™ #32 - Just can't get anything done.

Abstract Development

It's been nice and warm, but that means my brain just doesn't work. So, it's been a bit of a slow week.

Trying to reset my mind by trying to go away for the weekend.

I tease some new client venture... but not telling you just yet even though we all know about it already I guess haha.

More promoted content in Gluon and how I am not managing that. Trying to keep it fresh.

Sublime Ads had a little outage... which is incredibly shocking. And nope, I didn't work on it - didn't even take my laptop to my remote work location (but I didn't know that when I recorded).

πŸŽ™ #31 - Reflecting.

Abstract Development

We drove to the Masurian Lake District in Poland for a short holiday, which was really amazing... except the place we stayed at. At least our daughter had a great time!

On the drive I had much time to reflect on what I want to do next and how I approach things.

Oh and phones just rub me the wrong way.

Side track a little on playing games, or how I don't.

I hint at Gluon's future... and perhaps another side project to do with Micro.blog (a simple app for replying). Should I uninstall it?

Discord... hmmm, no thanks. So I'll be closing it down for Gluon, email is the way!

I talk about my other in progress app that I never work on... Status for updown.io.

And then something AMAZING happened, but I won't talk about it yet.

A tiny update on Sublime Ads and what I want to add to ads. Switching the Status page to updown.io.

OH and a super massive sorry for cutting the ending a little. I was disturbed, things were said... I was sad... feelings were hurt (for me). WHAT CAN YOU DO?

πŸŽ™ #30 - Managing time... not.

Abstract Development

This is episode 30, which means... nothing really. However, I did get myself a dedicated microphone. So this is the first test for that. Don't mind the fan noise... it's keeping me cool!

Then I ramble on about some client work that didn't go so well, but we all moved on and made things better.

Which brings me to a segment on how I manage my time, or don't actually. Yes, I'm weird... but it works for me. Perhaps it'll work for you.

And no... no "watch buzz" was heard!

Recorded using the Blue Yeti X, without reading the manual, using GarageBand. Exported to WAV and edited in Fission.

πŸŽ™ #29 - When you tap, and nothing happens.

Abstract Development

Getting an update ready for Gluon... oh and I started a Discord server just for giggles.

Thinking of a new podcast just specific to Gluon releases... because that is all I seem to do here on this one... blah blah blah.

Talking about Gluon. It's become apparent that a lot of people seem to use the app, more than I have initially thought. Which is nice of course.

A side project has landed on my desk. Hooray. Building it in Ruby on Rails. It's motivating me to start my other personal side project to take on HEY World. And nope, not talking about Basecamp.

And then we're back talking about... YESSSSSS... Gluon! My internal struggle with adopting SwiftUI or not continues, especially with everything going on in the Apple world these days.

And nope, interstellar travel does not exist.

Client work is important, but more important is family life... which sometimes I just mess up. I touch on this a little and give myself a financial check where I'm at if everything just went south.
