Ottawa Based Mac Programmer Collective...coming soon

We will code in the coffee shops, at home and in our car...

We will code as a group or alone....

We will ship in 3 weeks....

Yes, I am working on a new iPhone App as part of the launch of a new Programmer Collective that is launching in Ottawa, Ontario (Canada). The name of the collective will be released soon, as will our new app.

Some details about the collective:
  • We are a group of local Ottawa devs that are coming together under a common banner.
  • We will continue to release software as individuals and the occasional group effort.
  • We code for the Mac, iPhone and are Cocoaheads.
  • We share resources (books, web hosting, blog hosting, code hosting, etc).
  • We share code, ideas, advice, and moral support.

Keep your eyes peeled, the curtain will be raised soon.

HockeyTweet Breaks into the US App Store

I made my first sale in the US App Store yesterday for HockeyTweet. It's a small start and encouraging to see the app selling outside Canada.

I also updated the Lockernine website based on feedback from a user. There is now a direct link to the App Store for the apps for sale by Lockernine (Lockernine being me and apps being yes there are more in the works).

Steve Ballmer Scoops HockeyTweet

Steve Ballmer announced the future of Hockey viewing on CBC's The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos. Steve knows that part of watching hockey is yelling at your TV and sharing with your friends and driving the other fans crazy. He scooped HockeyTweet on the show and talked about how you should be able to immediately tell your friend about a fantastic goal -- no matter whether your friend is next to you on the couch, at the bar or at the game.

Steve's vision of the future didn't take long to realize. HockeyTweet is now available in the Apple App Store. After you've downloaded a copy, take a minute to check out Steve Ballmer''s interview.

Steve -- just visit the iTunes store to get your copy. Better yet, send me an e-mail and I'll send you a promo code.
