My Christmas Break as of Christmas

Redo: [download]

I have had a pretty easy week so far… I have had nothing to do but cross stuff off of my todo list. Being a Jew around Christmas is great because it is a day off where you don’t have to do anything… no family obligations, nothing. So far I:

  • Cleaned Detailed my entire apartment
  • Figured out my firewire recorder and recorded a new song
  • Started Learning Cocoa (Awesome programming language for Macs)
  • Got my scooter back
  • Hung out with Mike a bunch.
Last night (Christmas Eve) Mike and I went to see “Eragon”. It was pretty good but after the Lord of the Rings trilogy set the bar so high for fantasy movies, nothing seems to be able to match up. I give it a B rating. I spent most of the day today recording “Redo” (named because when I was almost done I accidentally erased everything). It turned out ok, but I am still trying to figure out the tricks of recording. Play the song above or listen to all my songs here. Every night before bed I work through a chapter in my Cocoa Book and will know some good GUI stuff before the break is done.


My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for the web, iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), and MacOS out of New York City. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. In 2019, I joined the team at Ticket Evolution as a Senior Software Engineer. 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 and a MBA from Quantic. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our dog Hamachi. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
