Some quotes from Mike Lee on Wednesday at YOW Brisbane

Here’s a selection of my favourite quotes from Mike Lee’s workshop at Yow conference in Brisbane this Wednesday:

  • “Porting from photoshop to Objective-C” (regarding making apps)
  • “Backward Compatibility is voodoo bullshit”
  • “Cut features, not quality”
  • “Speculation is a great evil”
  • “Never underestimate the power of doing something well over the power of doing something first”

In a word, the workshop was awesome.

It’s rare to meet someone so intense and passionate about what they do, and experience such brutal honesty in an intimate setting.

Thanks YOW, and thanks Mike Lee!
