After several weeks of kicking an idea around, I decided to take the plunge. It’s time for this guy to learn how to build apps.
The reason for the hesitancy is reality; this will be no easy feat. When starting anything new, there is a level of naivety … you don’t yet know what you don’t know. But I hope I have no disillusions here. Developing apps for OS X or iOS is an arduous task, a craft to be learned.
Nonetheless, this is a step I want to take. I simply have to take a high level, long term approach. This is a new skill I’m learning and it could be years before it bears any fruit. With that in mind, I decided I would journal the experience and share it with others. the greatest aspect the Internet has given us is access to knowledge. Education. I hope to share with others for the purpose of helping them learn along with me.
Siteleaf is fantastic! Using the Liquid syntax, it’s easy to pick up if you’re familiar at all with CMSes. And with Markdown support, it’s a nice writing environment.
To do this, I created a new site. I could have simply included the content as a section here on my Kirby install. But I decided to give it a bit of separation and I’ve been looking for an excuse to kick the tires on Siteleaf.
If you’re at all interested in developing for a Mac, or seeing what’s involved, please follow along. You can subscribe to the updates here. I’ll be sharing what I’m working on, where I’m struggling, the resources I’m using to learn as I go, and hopefully, some tips from the amazing community of developers out there.
I’d love to share with you!
