I'm John Nye, half of NimbleWorks where I get to play with mobiles and build things, for myself and somtimes clients.
Since striking out on my own in 2009 I've switched from web development to mobile development and back a few times. My go to languages are Objective-C and PHP, yes it has a bad reputation but modern PHP is not what you think it is.
Simulator Folders is a simple menu bar application that get you to the iOS simulators folders quickly, avoiding the mire of hashed folder names.
It's free and installable through cask with
brew cask install simulator-folders or downloading it.
ReadHQ is our RSS reader, I've had less to do with this development of this then I'd have liked, client work, you know.
ReadHQ will be launching in public beta in a few weeks, we've got some interesting features and have worked hard on making the RSS reader we want to use.
Work Journal is a Mac application to keep track of what you do every day. Think of it as the revers todo list, or done list.
I'm currently working on some ambitious features for Work Journal.
Site Audit is a proof of concept website content audit tool. Written as a Sinatra app that scans sites for content and exports to CSV for content professionals to analyse.
Short is a non-persistent link shortener written in Go using base62 encoding to generate the short links.
Obviously some form of persistence would be helpful, but Go seems to be a nice fun language to code in, I'd like to do a bit more work with it.
Comprising a mobile app and a web service, Self Aware is a side project built around tracking personal metrics.
The web service is available at the moment, the iOS app will be in the future when iOS 7 drops the NDA. It has a very simple API that can be used by anyone.
I co-host Exeter Web a bi-monthly meetup for people working in or around the web in Devon. Apart from stepping up to fill a speaking slot when we're short, I occasionaly speak at other events in the South West.
