I'm Dave, and I love Objective-C.

My Projects:

  • DDMathParser - a library for parsing NSString objects as mathematical expressions and evaluating them
  • CHCSVParser - a library for reading and writing CSV files
  • DDUnitConverter - a simple library for converting between units
  • StackKit - a framework for using the StackExchange API.

If you think I'm a nice guy, check out my Amazon Wishlist! :)

comment What's with the reputation here on Stack Apps?
@Jeff Atwood i remember participating in the private beta, specifically asking questions about the API, advising where to set up a private repository, etc. I even posted about my StackKit framework and asked for helpers (and got some). Does any of that count as "participation" or "active participation"?

comment What constitutes 'active participation' in the private API beta?
Hmmmm... not sure that's correct, because I was active in the private beta and didn't get anything. :(

Make sure you add -ObjC and -all_load to the Other Linker Flags setting of your project. That will load the categories in the static library.

comment StackKit: an API framework for Cocoa
good idea. I'm a big fan of memory management, so I totally forgot about garbage collection. I've pushed a change that turns on support for garbage collection, as well as an SKUser method that takes a square CGSize (or CGSizeZero) and returns a gravatar URL. Keep the feature requests coming! :)

comment How the apps-libraries will be judged for the contest?
@Matt your app is lame because you don't have an iOS screenshot either :P Please try not to be so "zealous" about promoting your app. You don't make yourself look good by putting others down.

comment SOAPI-WATCH: A realtime service that notifies subscribers via Twitter when the API changes in any way
@code poet - WRT the twitter updates, it'd be nice if you could detect when the only thing that's changed is the first line of the api ;) That would help eliminate most of the "false positive" tweets.
