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.
