Motion-Accessibility

June 19, 2013

I just released my second RubyMotion gem. I call it motion-accessibility. It makes it much easier to make your applications accessible by providing Ruby-like names to Appleā€™s accessibility APIs. I have some great plans for the future as well. It feels great to contribute to the RubyMotion and iOS community.

Asbury Park Adventure

May 31, 2013

While speaking at the RubyMotion conference in Belgium I met Bret Morgan, who runs a coworking space in New Jersey called Cowerks.

I believe I have disproved this. Sighted people also felt curious, so I hope they will find it valuable as well.
