Auto Layout Slides and Video Available

On Thursday, January 10, I gave a talk at Seattle Xcoders about Auto Layout, explaining the benefits and workings of this new technology and sharing some tips learned from our adoption of auto layout.

I’ve uploaded the slides from my talk. I’ll upload the video once I’ve found a place to put it.

Update: Thanks to Paul Goracke of Seattle Xcoders, the video of my talk is now available as well. Unfortunately, for some reason the cursor got disassociated from the actual mouse position during the demos, and I don’t have any way to fix it. Sorry! (rdar://problem/13011198)

Seattle on a Sheet

It seems like @burritojustice‘s Islands of San Francisco map is flying around the ‘net. I just saw a retweet from Mike Jurewitz (aka @jury) that referenced it unsourced.

While his map is far more beautiful and informative, he credits me with inspiring him by producing a map I titled “Seattle on a Sheet.” I made this map in 2010, shortly after moving to Seattle, to help orient myself and flex my OmniGraffle skills. Unfortunately, all links to that file are now dead, as I’ve changed my online handle and web host since 2010.

Seeing that tweet spurred me to go looking for the original Seattle on a Sheet map, and after a brief trawling through Time Machine backups of a computer I’ve long since wiped and given to my mom, I found the map I thought was lost!

Here it is: Seattle on a Sheet.

edit: And now available in poster form from Zazzle!
