Most of my blogs are about my physical projects, my tools like my 3d printer, my Rigol power supply and scope and my beloved soldering iron. But, truth to be told, most of my time is spent behind my computer. Today I’m going to give you a rundown of tools and ingredients I use the most when working on my Mac.
While I was recently working on a small iOS Swift side project, I stumbled on the issue of poor usability due to a small hitarea of some tiny buttons.

A lot of iOS Apps nowadays use table views with images as a header. Yahoo News Digest is a good example, but misses a parallax effect to make it a bit less ordinary. I wanted to check out how simple it is to create such a Table View in Swift.
While working on one of my Arduino projects, I was in the need for a simple wrapper for communication with the Adafruit Bluefruit LE nRF8001 Breakout.Since I was unable to find one (especially one that was Swift-ready) I wrote a Swift-wrapper myself.
