Old school. Been around since the days of the Big Iron 3090s. Programmed everything from mainframes to pocket calculators. I go everywhere on motorcycles and am constantly hassled by my cats for somewhere to sleep.

comment OAuth2 flow - does the server validate with the Auth server?
Thanks for that, an interesting read. My requirements are rather simple in that I want to allow an iOS app to authenticate with google, twitter, facebook, etc, pass some form of authorisation to my server and have my server validate it and enable access to resources. The problem has proved more complex than I anticipated due to the complexities of understanding how this works and what I have to do where.

comment Are my negative internship experiences representative of the real world?
True :-) and I've also worked at a startup populated with some of my mentioned incompetent fools who created a lot of crap code to start with.

comment iOS: Versioned static frameworks vs Git Submodules and included code
true, they do solve the same problem. I'm wondering if as a general development flow, that submodules are easier to manage. Frameworks take complicated scripts to build and when I want to change to a new version, a bit of fiddling around in build settings.
