The Discussion

Generalization vs Specialization

  • Back to Work #209: Habitual Ritual
  • What causes some folks to collect hobbies/interests while others focus on and master one thing?
  • Opinion: Is It Better to Specialize or Generalize? - Nora Dunn (no, not the SNL Nora Dunn)
  • What type are we?
    • John
      • Restless. I like to learn a little bit about a lot of stuff.
      • I wish that I could learn a lot about a large number of things, but I don’t have the time nor the mental capacity.
      • I believe in the axiom that “Someone always knows more ‘Karate’” and that frustrates my efforts to go deep in any one area.
    • Chad
      • Cop-out. Somewhere in the middle.
    • Darryl
      • Generalist. I have always collected hobbies and dabbled in things superficially. This has transferred over to my professional life with two major (but complementary) career changes.
  • How does this serve us with regard to iOS development?
  • How has this hindered us?

Open-Source Project of the Week

  • DDAntennaLogger - Giovanni Lodi Giovanni asked what we thought of his simple remote logger. I was unfamiliar with both CocoaLumberjack and Antenna, so I’m passing the question along to our listeners. What do you folks think? Open up some issues/pull requests for Giovanni.
