What's New

Working with various levels of knowns.

February 22, 2024

The something new is the release of my latest book, "The Mystery of the Mutating Mannequin", on DataFlow in SwiftUI from @State to SwiftData. The something old - on the eighteenth anniversary of the death of my youngest daughter, I invite you to read Dear Elena - a collection of my writings in that first year.

February 20, 2024

On why we do the kind little things that seem futile. Also, the Firehouse Five, mom's got a bike, another scam, the fine art of baloney detection, Maggie's link to Defunctland, and David Smith shows how to make an SF Symbol.

We look at SwiftData relationships and the @Model macro.
