MTJC podcast is a show about mobile development. Each week Jaime Lopez, Mark Rubin (sometimes Greg Heo and Tammy Coron) and myself, Tim Mitra, will convene from across the continent to discuss iOS and Mac development. We discuss current issues to find out what developers are talking about, what their apps are about, what they are using to create their apps and what advice they have for other developers (or those looking to become one). We also have news, notes and tech tips for developers.
 
A humorous video podcast from CartoonSmart.com. Topics will include: iOS / tvOS game development with Xcode, Swift and Sprite Kit, plus anything to do with illustration, character design, animation, or Adobe software (Flash / Animate in particular). These are a bit of a spoof on our usual material (okay, very much a spoof), but we dare you NOT to learn at least something in these videos tutorials. Videos range from 30mb to 50mb (relatively small).
