Swift If you are interested in getting started with mobile development and if you like to start with iOS, I bumped into a great resource to learn Swift. There are tons of sample projects and great video walkthroughs as well as source codes of the projects you can download from github.

I had a radical switch to iPad Pro as my primary workspace and I used that set up exclusively for 6 months. As part of my day to day work, I test a lot of features and new developments on our mobile development cycle. I uninstall and re-install and replicate a lot of weird conditions on mobile environments. It's great to do these and relatively easy to simulate these cases with real devices but when it comes to test Android, it gets pretty wide range of devices and hardware/software differences. Often I test the same user behavior on 5-6 devices which is very annoying.

Bat Stand
This could be easily me doing testing :-)

Anyway, I was in search of doing this on actual mobile device but replicate the other hardware and software variations but in the very cloud, remote-desktop fashion. Why there is no strong service doing this more professionally? Other than testing purposes, I really want to open and want to play with a new android OS on a real device with any resolution I want to and stream that to my existing mobile device? I would love to check out some android apps on my ios device, vice versa...

I gave a try to:
- AWS Device Farm - their browser experience is very lagging, starting up a device takes at least 4-5 minutes (why?) and there are most of the time device initialization errors.
- appetize.io - so far, the best experience, mobile browser friendly as well, but limited virtual device variations and there is just one real device type.
- Genymotion cloud - I haven't get a chance to play with it since they are in their private beta.
- Other option is to build it manually with VPN or RDP but required rooting or jailbreaking the device which is not ideal and painful to go through.

Hopefully we'll get there and we'll have the option to stream apps or OSes as we do movies tv shows today...

The term "Digital Nomad" becoming more and more popular in every year within last decade, maybe more visible in last 5 years. It has become well known and accepted as more people shared their nomadic stories on their blogs.

We can say it's more like a lifestyle change than a temporary thing for most people. There is a pattern on the personas accepted this lifestyle. They are working mostly in tech industry, usually creates stuff, standalone or not needing constant collaboration with a team or don't have physical dependencies (sourcing materials etc). People like sysadmins, developers, designers, digital artists...

The term "nomad" explains the lifestyle factor more than being digital because it's all about being location independent. Working from everywhere in any time (often working all the time for entrepreneur versions). It sounds great right? Executing is not necessarily that great :-)

I've been experimenting with different elements of becoming digital nomad in last year period. Each of the following topics below deserves much deeper explanation but I'll summarize them now. I'll write about each one separately later.
