So I recently started a new position where I am helping to audit documents and web pages for digital accessibility, and I am really enjoying it. I'm learning that digital accessibility is really about making things easier and less complex for users, and I am really excited to learn more.

@darrell73 That’s my plan. I deduced that CPACC should be the first one to start with. I am going through @dequesystems University’s courses as well.

@kevinrj @BTyson The closest Apple comes to that is that they sell Parallels and other VM software that can run Windows.

So after a fantastic lunch at Cheesecake Factory, and a hella long nap afterward, I can honestly say this was an Easter for the memory books. Good food, great conversation, and wonderful people… what more can be asked for?

@TechEnthusiast I personally would have liked for the mall to have been open, but ya know. We can’t always have everything. LOL

@TechEnthusiast I’m sure we will find ourselves there during the week sometime. Got to get out of the apartment after work sometimes.

Okay people, I've done it... I have been as of the last few weeks, a proud owner of a Stanley cup. It's purple, and I love it. Everything from coffee to water lives in here, and I've even taken to using silicone straws, rather than the plastic guy that came with my cup. It has a handle, a very wide mouth which is easy to pour into, and you can either go with the straw option, or drink from it via the hole in the lid. I've taken to using those silicone stoppers which make the thing leak-proof. People either love these things, or find them hyped to the skies, but I love my plumb-colored Stanley. I even have a purple nylon sling for it which lets me go completely hands-free by wearing it around my neck, cross-body, or over my shoulder. Said sling also has a pocket for my phone...

I would love for someone to prove to me that building an app on Android and distributing it to Google Play is easier than building an app for the Apple App Store.

Building for the App Store was not as easy when I started, but they've made things so much easier over time.

mikedoise,
@mikedoise@techopolis.social avatar

@JamminJerry @TechEnthusiast Yes, 10 years ago we had to use Objective-C on iOS and macOS. Things became much easier with the switch over to Swift. At least in my opinion. Plus, you cn upload your builds with Xcode, and even through Swift Playgrounds. They’ve made everything super easy. This is the case until it isn’t, and something breaks, but it is still amazing when it works.

I would not recomend Android development to people learning to code as there are so many things that one has to remember and do to make a good appp.

mikedoise, to random
@mikedoise@techopolis.social avatar

There really needs to be a change with how developers build Android apps. The process for developing apps is needlessly complicated, and the process for signing and distributing apps needs an overhaul. You should NOT need a random keystone password to sign your apps.

mikedoise,
@mikedoise@techopolis.social avatar

@TheQuinbox Yep. I know how to sign apps, but I don’t always remember the password for apps I haven’t updated since 2017. There should be a better way to manage this than a simple password that can cause your app to be useless on Google Play.
