If you are wondering how things are going in Germany: Our special forces (think Navy Seals) have to be reformed and disbanded partially, because of “right-wing extremist incidents”. Oh, and they also lost 48k rounds of ammunition and 62kg of explosives…

Best way forward is probably to ask your bank/creditcard company/paypal to get that money back from them and don’t bother poor overworked and underpayed (and seriously understaffed) call center workers…

Looks like @Lufthansa_DE has pretty much turned off its callcenter, the only way to get a refund. Great way to reduce costs!

I’m really blown away how efficient developing an app with SwiftUI and The Composable Architecture can be. Wrote a functioning Firestore backed multiuser app to track who ate how many snacks at the office in under two days. Including different r/w permissions based on roles.

Amusingly the YouTube website is now way more functional on iOS 14 than the app: picture in picture just works.

Looks like Germany has its first case of Covid-19 actually reported with the app?

Four out of five of the last near-miss traffic accidents I had were caused by white middle-aged males trying to be particularly manly. Would be interesting how many people die in traffic because others have to perform their masculinity.

A bit sad that there still isn’t a way to stroke() a Text() in SwiftUI. Or am I missing something?

Dear America, “Anne-Tifa“ is the child of a bunch of millennial nerds that played too much Final Fantasy VII. Anti-Fascists are ”Anti. Fa.“

Soo… can we get ReplayKit support in Xcode? That would be great for streaming live coding, I guess?

I’m “I miss when WWDC served Jamba Juice" years old.

Just realized this might be the first WWDC I’m not anxious about in half a decade. That’s a nice feeling.

So I guess the check log doesn’t show activity if there are no keys to check against? If so: Highly confusing and abysmal UX.

Just to make sure: Anybody out there with actual checks in their log originating from the german Corona Warn App? (Settings/Privacy/Health/Covid-19/Exposure Checks)

Having a hard time understanding what exactly that means.

While it seems to be App Store wishing season: I’d like for In-App purchases to be de-emphasized (keep them at 70/30, while the App Price is 90/10), subscriptions to be an exception (e.g. only for services also available outside the App Store), demo versions and upgrade pricing.

(There are a few options running on Postgres, so that’s probably the best to play around locally. E.g. Hasura.)

I hope App developer will stop calling everything Rocket before my menu bar looks like a Star Citizen dock.

Does anybody have a recommendation for a locally hostable techstack that supports GraphQL including GraphQL subscriptions backed by a NoSql Database? (Basically Parse, but with subscription support)
