Bitfountain Auto Layout Course Review

Auto Layout was a very mysterious tool and it felt like another programming language to learn, but I was able to learn all the mysteries with this course. Bitfountain offers a $25 video course and I completed most of the course. They teach you the foundamentals from different ways of doing constraints i.e NSLayoutConstraint, anchors, Mainstory board constraints and VFL. I think it was lacking MORE exercises for each topic, but for $25 I do think its great value.

The best investment is in yourself!!!

aaaand I just bought sketch 3 and a course on udemy.

My sanctuary in Fort Worth

This is my studio apartment where I learn and sit for hours after work, I only have what’s necessary such as: An imac, kitchen, good sound system, clothes, bed and just healthy food on the fridge. A lot of friends get alienated because I don’t have a Tv, game console, a pet or any other unnecessary stuff that people buy. I live on the top floor to sleep good 7-8 hours and pay $1200, i know that’s expensive but I believe its important where you live. Its VERY close to my job, gym, store,  restaurants, river, park, bars, etc… and maybe it can be bad because of temptation(partying) sometimes. I love this place and I enjoy it every day, this is where I’m pursuing my dreams and I’m willing to sacrifice to live in a good apartment, a fancy car isn’t that important to me. I keep my apartment clean by the help of a roomba robot(can’t wait for the future robot chef) and keep my fridge full of chicken and carrots.

In one year I will be in Dallas in another apartment and I’m planning where to live.

So here’s my first audio app, its a  simple drum pads with sounds loaded and I feel very proud of it. I learned how to use AVAudioPlayer and PaintCode for the buttons, it appears that it has 0 ms sound latency but around 150ms latency when I use bluetooth headphones.

On another note, I finished the nerd ranch programming book and I think is a great book to start learning IOS programming. I’m waiting for the updated standford course and finally finish that course. On the meantime I’m learning protocol oriented programming and learning more about the framework audioKit.

AND REMEMBER

YOU ONLY FAIL IF YOU QUIT!!!!
