New User as Apple Dev

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys n Gals,


I thought I'd say hi as I've just joined in the fun and games! I come here as a current apple developer (on official apple hardware of course and with proper developer accounts :D).


I pretty much write anything and everything from kexts all the way through to AppleScript and Quartz bits and bobs :)


If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Just don't bombard me with silly questions please :)


I come from a strong Windows and BSD background peppered with spatterings of *NIX dabbling, so when it comes to most computer systems, I pretty much know the ins and outs ;)


I'm a director of 2 companies in the UK. One deals with Apple and UNIX environments (both development and system admin) and the other is a pet project of mine which is due to go public within the next few months.


Anyway, erm.. I'm 34, from SE UK, a guy :D I spend a lot of time building electronic projects (mainly MCU based i.e. PIC MCU, various ARM archs and have started working with intel archs (atom) recently). So if you have any electronic or electronic <-> PC/Mac integration questions, feel free to ask me too :)


Anyway, time to go looking about and see whats going on!


Hasta la pasta!

Well, i'll be the first to ask a question, hehehe... Do you have kernel development background? Here are these two talented guys, Sinetek and Bronzovka, trying to perfect Mountain Lion and Mavericks' kernels to run on AMD machines: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/281450-mountain-lion-kernel-testing-on-amd-dont-ask-help-here-use-the-help-topic/page-156?do=findComment&comment=1948306


Perhaps with all your knowledge, you could lend them a hand? The biggest challenge now is to make nVidia cards to work on AMD rigs in any OSX flavor newer than 10.7.5 - but I think this is more kext-related than kernel related.


All the best!

P.S.: and welcome to Insanelymac!
