I'm an iOS developer, and I'm also especially interested in database programming and web development. I started programming computers as a hobby when I was a kid, beginning with Logo and progressing through BASIC, Pascal, PHP, and Scheme before coming across the nirvana that is Python. I used to be the head of the math department at an independent school here in Brooklyn, NY, where I taught mainly calculus courses and started experimenting with incorporating CS concepts into my school's math curriculum.

I come from a musical family---my father was the Principle Bassoon in the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra for almost forty years (yes, I've heard the joke about our last name, and yes, it's funny), and my uncle was a Julliard-trained cellist in the Atlanta Symphony for at least as long. I started playing the piano when I was five, and I picked up the guitar and bass at fifteen. About three years ago I started learning to play clawhammer banjo, and I can't seem to put it down. :) My main musical interests center around jazz and American folk music.

It's the latter—a quick ornament played right before the main note.

comment Objective C - iPhone: different DetailViewControllers for TableView?
That really depends on your specific needs. Without knowing more about what you want to show for each item, it's difficult to answer.

comment Objective C - iPhone: different DetailViewControllers for TableView?
How do you determine which page you want to see based on the item you tap? Can you give a specific example? (for example: "When I tap on a type of car, I should see a car detail view, but when I tap on a type of boat, I should see a boat detail view"). And do the products you get from the app store contain the necessary metadata to make that determination?

Do you want to use different types of cells for the different types of items that presumably go to different DetailViewControllers?

When the user taps on an item, how will you determine which DetailViewController you want to show?

comment What are some chord substitutions for a I-IV-V blues progression?
Holy moley! He totally plagiarized my answer! I'm honestly not sure how I feel about that, actually. I mean, it's not like I get paid for my contributions here or anything, but a little attribution would have nice. Oh well—I hope you found it helpful, anyway.

comment Learning Jazz chords and about the style in general?
Does this begin to answer your question? If so, can you expand more what you'd like to know? If not, can you be a bit more specific on what you're looking for? music.stackexchange.com/a/2292/36
