Xcode 9 Oddities – External Keyboard Not Working in Simulator

Since “upgrading” to Xcode 9 (specifically v9.3 as of time of writing), I’ve noticed quite a number of annoying oddities – or call them bugs. Today’s nuisance is how the external keyboard (i.e. the physical keyboard you type into) will occasionally just stop working. As in, typing into your physical keyboard will not send any input into the IOS app you are running in the simulator.

As with many things tech related, the good ol’ restart seems to be “fix” it – as in just Quit the simulator and re-run your project.

Not too big a deal, but really, stuff like this just shouldn’t be happening. Come on Apple, we deserve better!

Machine Learning for the Masses

Came across Lobe today. Very exciting and interesting start up that aims to bring a “no-techie” required visual design web based interface to building deep learning models.

Looks like very good stuff!
