NFM Hoults Session

I was invited to a marketing seminar at Northern Film + Media hosted by Ewan McIntosh, formerly of channel 4’s 4IP investment scheme. It was an enjoyable and interesting day, though it took me around 4 hours to prepare the PowerPoint slides we were asked to bring, working until 1am the previous night, only to find I didn’t need them in the end. Doh!

Still, it helped me think through a few things to get the best out of the day.

Source control

Managed to get source control set up for my iPhone app yesterday, not as scary as I was expecting, thankfully.

Only took half a day, although I did get into a tangle through moving all the files between directories- I must remember to do that via the GUI not Finder!

I used “Versions” as a GUI and “Beanstalk” for offsite hosting. Versions is a freebie for 20 days, then $39. Beanstalk is free for one repo.
