WWDC: I didn't pay full attention, but they didn't mention anything about side-loading, did they?
Full-stack software developer, aerial survey pilot, Portugal. #csharp developer for habit, #flutter developer for UI, #dartlang for full stack development, #golang as a companion to #dartlang on the server.
Politically, I am for #socialdemocracy, the principles, not necessarily the Portuguese political party. I am for market freedom, but with a social safety net, and with the acknowledgment that the market isn't always the solution. I am #keynesian and a fan of Franklin Roosevelt.
As for religious beliefs, I have none. If science doesn't explain it, then it goes to the "unknown" box. I am, nonetheless, culturally Catholic. One can retain religion's good intentions even after growing out of its belief system and in spite of its many hypocrisies.

Finally PWAs on the Mac, through Safari!
Por esta senhora, mas também por todas as mulheres que eu amo: https://www.ordemenfermeiros.pt/noticias/conteudos/peti%C3%A7%C3%A3o-p%C3%BAblica-vamos-ajudar-a-enfermeira-sandra-gomes/
Sometimes software developers are absolutely nuts. Why in the world does Acrobat Reader for MacOS take over half a Gigabyte? There is absolutely no reason whatsoever for such bloat. In contrast, all I wanted was to validate a digital signature, so I used instead the Linux command pdfsig. The binary (ok, doesn't include all the libs) takes only 47,1Kb. Massively different proportions.
Home-banking sites that use a virtual keypad and prevent copy-paste are idiotic for 2 reasons:
They require me to actually see the password I have stored in my password manager. This means I will not access the site from outside a safe space, like my actual home.
Even if I known the password, anyone looking at the screen will see me actually click each and every character.
Looking at you, CGD.
This is me in a DeHavilland Tiger Moth in Wonderboom Airport, in Pretoria, South Africa, in the early 80s. The photo was taken by my dad.
The connection with aviation started from the crib.

I need two major productivity boosters while coding:
Coffee (the old adage is that a developer is a machine that transforms caffeine into code).
Quality music. Right now I am listening Max Richter's compositions over and over. The addiction started with his re-composition of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, but it has now spread to his extended repertoire.
To some degree, I owe my career as a developer to the great musicians.
A política tem momentos interessantes. Joaquim Miranda Sarmento usa o caso Tutti Frutti, onde o PSD também está envolvido, para atacar o PS. A diferença entre um partido e outro é a de que num caso está envolvido um deputado, no outro um ministro. É a troca de um peão por um bispo.
O maior engano em Portugal é a associação entre a esquerda e a liberdade. Não, uma coisa não implica a outra. Destaco 2 criterios que indicam se temos ou não liberdade e democracia. 1. A separação de poderes. O regular funcionamento das instituições.
2. A liberdade de imprensa.
Sempre que o PS sobe ao poder, começa a corroer ambas. Andamos todos distraídos com o Chega e no entanto o Chega só conseguiria ser pior que o que temos com o PS se um dia nomeasse um PM. O PS é a urgencia de hoje.
