John Carmack At QuakeCon 2011

At some point toward the second half of the video (it's a really long video) Carmack talks about writing good code which is something I'm always interested in.

Simple Git Usage

To update your repository type:

git pull

To commit your changes type:

git add .
git commit -m "your comment"
git push origin

But there are some pretty good clients out there. For Windows the Tortoise Explorer shell integration is pretty good. And free! For Mac I've found that SourceTree is my current favorite. It works with Git, Mercurial and Subversion. But it isn't free.

Making Icons for Mac Apps

The easiest tool I've run across for building icons for your Mac or iOS apps is Icon Composer. It ships with every set of developer tools on the Mac in the folder "\Developer\Applications\Utilities\Icon Composer". You will need 512x512, 256x256, 128x128, 32x32 ad 16x16 images. But it's pretty simple, drag drop images to their respective sizes, save as, done.
