So, a lot of you
I’m sure are familiar with
Grand Central Dispatch
– Hidden Gems in Cocoa and Cocoa Touch, WWDC Session 228
At ReignDesign we’re a big fan of AsciiWWDC, a great resource for reading and searching the full-text transcripts of Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference session videos.
And there’s something a little poetic about the way the transcripts are listed. This inspired some late-night hacking creating wwdc-haiku, a simple Python script which, given a session number, attempts to scan the transcript of a single session for possible haikus (that is, sentences with a 5-7-5 syllable pattern).
$ ./wwdc-haiku 228 And what happens is you choose that and you see a window like this pop So, it's going to look very similar to the last example And actually I'm backing it this time by a dictionary So, a lot of you I'm sure are familiar with Grand Central Dispatch It's just one of those things that it takes a while to get into your head I think the two most useful and interesting ones are max and min It's returning a Boolean whether or not it was successful So, was that that was pretty fast, but I think we hit everybody
Yes, we know our haikus won’t pass muster with any Japanese poetry scholars… but do clone the code from Github and have fun!
What can you do with
these? Well, in Jay’s Donut Shop
I had this problem
