Bill Donner’s Place
Bill Donner - software enthusiast, part time musician, grandfather.
I’m blogging now about an interesting offer that can help some of my neighbors learn to code (for FREE!), while I am preparing to help my own grandkids.
Learn SWIFT in Mt. Vernon, NY
I am offering my expertise in Swift Programming for FREE to anyone 12 years old or over who is interested in learning this programming language and lives in the Mount Vernon area (zip code 10552). I am prototyping a learning group for the Swift Curriculum from Apple and am prepared to get started this winter of 2019/20 with:
Everyone Can Code - 15 three-hour sessions - students need an iPad running ios12 or newer.
I can accommodate up to five people per class, which will be held in a local studio. If you are a minor, you should bring an adult or guardian, who can also learn to code (or not).
Please contact me via email (email@example.com) if you’d like to participate. If you don’t live in 10522, hold tight for now…
I am also starting to maintain a list of relevant links about the Apple curriculum here
After this winter's course I will also set up another group to work on Intro to App Development with Swift - it is twice as long and needs a Mac laptop, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

And then there are the projects I write for myself and my friends:
Musicians can organize their content for live performances with GigBrowser.
Tiny Gig Apps
- find MP3 files your band has scattered across the internet
- organize and edit into “playlists"
- optionally add documents (lyrics, chords)
- generate nice looking playable HTML web pages
- IOS app for hands-free playing of your playlists and viewing lyrics and chords
Bifurgram Catalyst App
An IOS and Mac app that reads an Instagram photo stream and separates portrait and landscape (and square streams) for optimal viewing of each.
Comfyland Pixel Server
A SwiftNIO server to generate 1px "safe" advertising pixels for experimentation.
A WatchOS and IOS app with one-tap cough tracking for you (or your partner), with reminders to get flu shots.
An IOS Cooking App with many timers, in SwiftUI.
If you have an idea for building something I will enjoy as well, then I might help you.
My friends and I have been playing in a few bands at various parties, bars, and other functions in Westchester, NY and lower Connecticut. We always appreciate more work.
bands i play with
At age 50 my family gave me an electric piano and headphones. Nowadays I play keyboards with these guys PlanB and these guys AboutHalfDead. I also play with others who prefer to remain invisible.
I am pretty much the only one left in these two bands with any time to dink with our websites. They are a 15 year old work in progress.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to book the PlanB and Abhd bands. PlanB Bronxville has a page on Facebook.
My own Millennial kids never cared much for code, but my grandkids will have to. So I am getting ready…
I have recently been shooting a bunch of photos with my new iPhone 11. I am particularly focused on black and white wide angle photography and posting some images on Instagram. But I am pretty disappointed with the way these photos are presented so I am looking for something better. And I have an IOS app on the bucket list that presents these same photos from Instagam in a full screen viewer.
