Um dos meus programadores favoritos (MarsEdit) entrevistado por um dos meus bloguers de eleição. Resultado? Muito bom.
Alguns apontamentos de uma longa entrevista que aconselho a ler:
Paixão pelos Mac e o seu perfeccionismo:
I didn’t acquire the real passion [for Mac] until I learned it on the job. There is a tendency within Apple to strive for perfection. Nobody laughs at you if you try to make something flawless. This is different from many other software businesses, and was dramatically different from the few little software-related jobs I’d had before.
Abandonar a Apple (onde trabalhou durante alguns anos):
At Apple there were brilliant marketers and graphic designers, not to mention accountants, lawyers, etc. I even had access to smarter developers than myself! But there is a great joy in knowing that the buck stops with you, and that the products you ship, at the end of the day, are either 100% the way you want them to be, or on their way in that direction.
I highly recommend blogs for anybody who wants to self-promote on the web. Regardless of your interests or your writing ability, there is a way for you to present quality perspectives to the web, and you will gain a readership that trusts and reads you faithfully.
Um dos planos futuros do MarsEdit é…?
I do have plans for WYSIWYG in the pipeline. I guess you said it was a shot in the dark because you realize I don’t want to make too many specific product-related promises. But I am willing to share some of my design considerations. WYSIWYG support in MarsEdit must be invisible to anybody who doesn’t want it. That is, plain-text mode will not be impacted by the presence of this new feature.
