New Code Blog

| Comments

After 1 year of non-updates, I am moving my (broken) code blog onto Posterous. Why, you ask? Well, like every Ruby on Rails fanboy, I created my own blogging engine as soon as I knew how. I added custom flickr integration and custom integration. I added custom Amazon integration, all of which are broken now. Maybe its an easy fix, maybe not. I just don’t have time to dig into it.

Posterous allows me to just email in updates with no setup and no time spent digging into ancient Rails code. Awesome.

UPDATE: 8/27/09 After importing my old blog, it seems that most of the old pics dont work. They were all pointing to a custom image caching scheme I had setup and they are all flickr images. I was a doofus and did not include the flickr id in the post anywhere so I am not about to go digging through flickr to fix the links. People will have to deal with broken images for all my old posts.


My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Mac OS X and the Web out of New York. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our two doggies Hamachi and Foxy. While coding, I walk several miles/day on my Treadmill Desk. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
