@tferriss that company for me is Apple and has served me well for the past 5-6 years. I will sell when I think it’s time will be gone.@tferriss I follow Warren Buffet’s advice: buy shares in a company you understand well and that you are willing to hold for 10 years

Does anybody know what the init! initalizer is for in Swift? http://t.co/JDyxCkZOzMI'm writing an article on optionals in Swift and I'm already at 3000+ words. I didn't expect there was so much to say about them.

Money can't buy you happiness, but I've experienced having it and not having it, and let me tell you, having it is the better of the two.

Irony does not work on Twitter: http://t.co/yeYlzSKKp6@sla_shalafi You'll probably will have to just wait, they have a very small team and probably do things one at a time.@sla_shalafi Work better on your sarcasm, sometimes it's almost undetectable. :pMonument Valley website: http://t.co/WeF9f3ojVhThe new levels of Monument Valley are amazing. Highly recommended. While you are at it leave them a nice review to contrast the cheapskates.Quick question, should I use Kanban or Scrum when building a product that no one cares about?

@sla_shalafi which means that dog is fucking huge.Remembering the 1st time I launched a paid course, a $4.95 ebook. Tons of outrage that I would dare charge. Took 3 years to overcome that.

@arnold_iosdev And probably would take me less time. :DSomeone on my mailing list thinks I'm the online Apple guides (which he clearly didn't even look at) http://t.co/mPhWscmy9dif your best hope of getting people to love your product is to add some new feature, it means your existing feature set is wrong.

@ribeto They definitely do :D@ribeto In a tweet definitely, in Xcode looks definitely better. IMO it's a matter of habit. Not sure that two for loops look much better.Love Swift map function: let images = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4].map({ "Name" + $0.stringValue }).map({ UIImage(named: $0) })

@sla_shalafi speaking of never learning.@sla_shalafi some people get in debt because don’t have enough salary from investment, or because they persevere after running out of money.@sla_shalafi That’s why I called it startup and not bootstrapping, although some of them use the term wrongly.Startup life: break ups, millions in debt, divorces, selling cars and parent houses. Looks appealing. https://t.co/4v6ag4OD9EIf u think you're better off to keep your idea "a secret" because "someone could steal it"you seriously don't understand how the world works
Retweeted by Matteo Manferdini@tommyjarnac @gangadhargs I wonder if it’s really true that people hate them. A few vocal complainers is not real data.@sla_shalafi they will get it when they will crash.

Of course, they never had it.@amyhoy and you have to fill a form to opt out from their unsolicited requests? How nice. What about the spam folder instead?

Retweeted by Matteo Manferdini@ratkins Or the if conditions with or without parentheses@ratkins The optionals are quite a pain tooIf developers fixed bugs at the speed Apple does, we would be out of business. There are bugs in Xcode that survived two major releases.Swift and Objective-C might interoperate well, but switching from one mindset to the other constantly is not that great.

@sla_shalafi an idea for your dog: http://t.co/Fy94w9rS3zThe best feature of mobile websites is the link at the bottom to go to the desktop version.@ramit software developers. Every nerd thinks he is much smarter than people with “normal” jobs. If they are in a startup, even more.the idea that gender tells you something positive about somebody is just as fucked up as the idea that it tells you something negative.
