Kazu's Log

Kazuyoshi Kato is a Japanese software developer in Seattle, Washington. He is interested in programming languages, data visualization and prototyping.

For next two or three months, I’m going to write a Pomodoro timer app in Swift. I’ve been using JustFocus as my Pomodoro timer. While I am satisified about 90% of the app, I sometimes forgot to start the timer, mostly after meetings where I tend to cancel an ongoing pomdoro.

Writing Pomodoro timer shouldn’t be that hard. I hope that I can “scratch own itch” by writing my own app.

Having my own project

Another goal of this project is having (and completing) my own software development project.

I’ve been working as a software developer in a relatively large corp for 5+ years. While working in a large corp itself is fine for me, I recently realized what I conceive as “software development” is becoming “software development within a team, in a large corp” which is just a small sub-set of software development.

So, I want to try something different. The repos is here and I will share my progress in this blog bi-weekly.
