    111: Poorly Fitting Skin Suit

    This week, Mark and Gordon talk politics! Or at least fake political websites. They go on to chat about using a mono-repo for large applications and Gordon proposes a potential CoreData wrapper lib that he'd very much like someone to make for him (he will not do it himself).

    In this episode, Gordon and Jack commiserate about doing unpaid tech support, and then talked about Cloud Kit and Apple Watch development issues. Some of Jack's guesswork about Cloud Kit is right, and some of it is wrong. That's why they pay him the big bucks.
