Podcast: OS X Development, and Remote Working Habits

Join Mic, Jake, and Andrew as they kick of the new season with a deep-dive into OS X development, the similarities between OS X and iOS, and how easy it is to share code between the two. After that, Jake talks about some big changes he's made recently and the positive impact they've had on his remote working habits.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

NSButton has actually had an image and alternateImage property since Mac OS X 10.0.

Indeed. Realized after recording that I had made that mistake. Thanks for pointing it out. Still, custom UI on OS X does require subclassing much more often than on iOS. For NSButton in particular, making a button with a background image that e.g. resizes properly still takes some work (though 10.10 did at least introduce cap insets for NSImage!).
