Yes, *that* Brent Simmons

I’m quite enjoying Brent Simmons’ series of posts on his conversion back to Core Data from raw SQLite in the Vesper app. Yes, that Brent Simmons. In each post he states his latest concerns, asks questions, makes decisions, and follows up as he gets more information. It’s generated some heated discussions, yet he reacts graciously. Watching his design decisions change as he gets real time feedback is a treat. It’s like a case study for productive dialog.

Update: And thus far, he’s decided to abandon Core Data and return to raw SQLite with FMDB.
