Nifty Trick: Minimize remote desktop from your keyboard

Every time I try to go mouse-less I find one or two programs that have me reaching for the mouse. Remote desktop is one of those programs.

I found a nifty short cut to exit full screen mode in remote desktop. All you have to do is press CTRL + ALT + Break. To go back to full screen mode use the same key combo.

I'm a Published Apple Developer

Over the last several months I had the pleasure of making an iPad app for eCompliance. It's a simple application that allows one to perform an inspection. The application comes with a number of predefined inspections or you can create your own. The name of the application is ec-InspectionPad. 

Learning to program in Objective C wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. The most challenging aspect of learning Objective C was the absence of many .Net language features that I've grown a custom to. For example, objective C does not have anything similar to LINQ or generics. If I've learned anything from working with Objective C it's that C# is a progressive modern language that I would much rather work with.

Just an example of a method call in Objective C.
