“On the Rumoured Xcode for iPad”

Today I posted an essay I’ve been working on for forever, “On the Rumoured Xcode for iPad”:

There have been several rumours posted in the past few months of a team inside Apple working on a version of Xcode for the iPad Pro. Since programming on touch screen devices is kinda my thing, I’m very excited about this possibility!

Apple claims the iPad is its vision of the future of personal computing, but I worry how exactly Xcode for iPad fits into that vision in practice. This essay explores those rumours and looks at the true potential of iPad as a vision for the future of computing.

It’s hanging out on my sorta-launched portfolio website, Why Not Fireworks?, which is pretty boring right now, but I intend on adding stuff to it in the coming months. There’s currently no RSS feed for it yet, but in the meantime you can subscribe to the newsletter or just patiently wait here.

The essay was a ton of fun to write, and I hope it’s just as much fun to read. What do you think about it?
