It’s been a while…

Business / iOS

I haven’t written anything for ages. To be fair I have been rather busy, as I am far along my transition from Grails developer to iOS/Mac developer.

In addition to doing some work for the BBC on an iPad app prototype, I am also starting a new co-working space in Stroud with my business partner Adam Hinks, a graphic designer who also lives in Stroud.

It’s exciting to start a new business and work on creating a great working environment for people who would otherwise be work at home. Having worked closely with Adam for some time on an iOS project, the value of being on-site with talented people from different fields is abundantly clear. It seems increasingly important when trying to create great software products.

So please do try Cluster if you’re in the Stroud area of Gloucestershire, UK and looking for a shared office.
