100 Days of SwiftUI – Day 5 – Functions

Variadic is a new term for me. The ability to pass many things into your function by using…

func square(numbers: Int…) {
for number in numbers {
print(“\(number) squared is \(number * number)”)

square(numbers: 1,2,3,4,5)

1 squared is 1
2 squared is 4
3 squared is 9
4 squared is 16
5 squared is 25

This is something I haven’t used before but I might in the future.

Project Consolidate

I am working on pulling all of my websites into one place. It will have a name that makes more sense than chipheadmike.com. The only reason that anyone knows what that means is because I told them.

This new website is more like a journal for me and less about someone reading about me on the web.

The new site will be based on my name. I have a database issue to contend with but once that is complete, I plan on having the new site up and running this weekend. If the database doesn’t cooperate, it could be a bit longer.

I am NOT transferring all of my books over to the new site manually.

More to come.

100 Days of SwiftUI – Day 3 – Operators and Conditions

If I post nothing else in the next 96 days, it will most certainly be a Swift update!

This is one of my favorite topics and one of the first reasons I fell in love with programming back in the 80s. I love logic statements and how you can create a program that can “reason” things out.

100 Days of SwiftUI – Day 2 – Arrays and other things

Complex data types and I are not friends but I muddled through the 2nd day.

I don’t use most of the data types that we went over nor can I see right now where I would use some of them in my day to day work.

That either means that I don’t really need them or that I really do need them but are too stupid to realize it.

100 Days of SwiftUI – Day 1 – Variables and other things

I am working through 100 Days of SwiftUI. I’ve been watching Paul Hudson videos for a while and he is a great teacher when it comes to Swift in general.

I highly recommend the FREE course if you are interested in programming in Swift.

Post my progress on here daily? Absolutely.

Topics covered…

Group: Simple Types

Strings and Integers
Multi-line strings
Doubles and Booleans
String interpolation
Type annotations

Tomorrow: Complex Types

It’s Hot!

This is important.

Sad that the words “Never leave children or pets in a car” must be spoken out loud.

Microsoft Edge Being Forced on Users

Sad. But true. I can’t believe this is still happening in 2020. This article mentions that Microsoft had a bad experience with forcing users to use their product before. It is shocking that they would try to do this again. Especially when Apple is now doing the exact opposite.

And I’m not surprised that some angry Windows users are already railing against the fact that this came as part of a forced Windows update, which Microsoft has already had a damn hard time justifying without invading people’s desktops as well. It’s going to be harder to buy the argument that forced updates are necessary for security when they’re pulling double-duty as an intrusive marketing tool.
