I’ve been watching psql (aka Pasquale D’Silva) for awhile now, ever since I saw his first previews of Keezy on Vine, and recently stumbled upon this talk he did for Web Directions South 2013 on Designing with Animation.
Definitely recommended for anyone who is interested in user interfaces, and especially for people who’d like to see what’s coming up in terms of what can now be achieved with the hardware of today, to make interfaces more intuitive and human.

So it’s been a little over 2 months since I decided to dial back my involvement with CoinJar and start full time freelancing as an iOS and Android developer, and I’m glad to announce that Blue Cottage has just released it’s first iOS app for the NSW Rural Fire Service (on both iPhone and iPad).
The app is called MyFirePlan, and is an app which helps people in at risk areas in NSW prepare for bushfires. It’s a shame it was released just after last week’s fires though if anyone is in NSW, please download it and start preparing your survival kit today (there’s also an Android version too so you really have no excuse :) ).
To be honest, I’m really surprised the market for iOS and Android apps seems to be quite healthy in Melbourne, so keep an eye out for Blue Cottage in the coming months as we have more apps in the works!
If you’re an Australian, and you’re on a Mac on OS X, AND you do your own taxes via the ATO’s online AusKey services, AND you happen to be encountering this error when creating a new project with Android Studio 0.2 (and it appears it also happens on on 0.3 as well):
java.lang.ClassCastException: org.slf4j.impl.Log4jLoggerFactory cannot be cast to ch.qos.logback.classic.LoggerContext
at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method)
Then you might have a conflict with libraries installed by AusKey.
To fix, go to the following directory on your local machine:
And check for slf4j*.jar files. If they’re there, either temporarily move them out of that directory (and put them back in there when running AusKey again), or update your JAVA libs path.
I also noticed they’re also conflicts with the Bouncy Castle libraries too (the bc*.jar files) which I’ve also temporarily disabled.
