    My Way Into Tech

    A week ago, I wanted to speak at a local meetup called She ’n IT about my way into IT, but I had to cancel last minute because I was sick. 🤧 I will get another chance to talk about it in the future, but because I really love hearing other people’s stories, especially other stories from women in tech, I decided to write my story down in form of a blog post.

They would be perfect as a summary. And if they help me, maybe they’ll help you too.

    I have a confession to make. It’s really sad, but true. In my career as an iOS developer, I’ve only ever build iPhone apps. iPads were never meant to be supported. Well... the apps "worked" in theory! Sort of. So, during my vacation in December, it was finally time to start working on the two-plus years old ticket to add iPad and iPhone landscape support for Cineaste App.

    Migration from Travis CI to GitHub Actions

    The last days, I migrated some of my open source repositories from Travis CI to GitHub Actions. I only used Travis for running tests or linter, nothing too complicated.

    Building Apps for Everyone?!

    Is it really important to build mobile apps with accessibility features and who needs them? Deep down, everyone of us knows that when we don’t support accessibility features in our products, we leave users behind. But in reality, we all find tons of excuses for not going that extra mile …
