Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, May 31, 2020, and this is show number 786. So how fun was the Crew Dragon launch this week? I actually cried when that rocket took off. And then I decided the perfect place to watch the hatch open on the ISS was on the screen in my Tesla via Youtube watching the NASA feed! Congratulations to everyone at SpaceX and NASA.
Chit Chat Across the Pond
In any case, in PBS 97, we extend that knowledge to learning about class data attributes and functions. We’ll learn the “static” nomenclature, which is used to mark attributes and functions as belonging to the class rather than the instances of a class.
Bart spends most of the lesson on a worked example using emoji to create what he playfully calls a Nerdtouche, as a head nod to the cartouche used by Egyptian Pharoahs. And yes, he manages to work the poop emoji into this lesson.
You can find this episode of Programming By Stealth in your podcatcher of choice, or listen over at the link in the shownotes where you can also find a link to Bart’s full tutorial shownotes.
Support the Show
Frank Petrie (aka @Wheels) set up our pledge break for this week (you have to hear it for this to make any sense at all!)
Why thanks for asking, Frank. Maybe I could give the audience some ideas. You learned about how to save your phone’s screen with a Diamond Dog tempered glass screen protector (and no they’re not a sponsor) and you learned some cool new tricks in iOS Markup, and after this you’re going to hear about how to protect yourself and your loved ones during Security Bits. Did you learn or were you entertained a dollar’s worth? Maybe you could consider going to podfeet.com/patreon and pledging said dollar a week to support the show. Back to you, Frank.
That’s going to wind this up for this week. Don’t forget to send in your Dumb Questions, comments and suggestions by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org, follow me on twitter @podfeet. Remember, everything good starts with podfeet.com/. podfeet.com/patreon, podfeet.com/paypal, podfeet.com/facebook, podfeet.com/slack!
