I'm Max Chuquimia ‐ a (predominantly Swift) software engineer in 🇦🇺 Sydney, Australia. I like nothing more than sitting down to solve a programming problem, so it's no surprise that I have made many projects alone and with friends or family. Here's a few favourites:
Blocky is a 100% offline & private iOS SMS filter. Check it out on the AppStore or GitHub!
An iOS app that helps you grab high-quality frames from any video or live photo and save them as an image.
A pinball-style game for iOS
iOS counterpart to the Herald macOS app
Screensharing on your Mac? Need to draw a diagram or highlight some content? Quick Draw is here to help.
A macOS app that helps other people at home know when you're in a meeting.

I strongly believe in Open Sourcing as much of the work I do as possible. On my GitHub page you'll be sure to find something interesting or (hopefully) useful, for example:
My personal Homebrew tap of scripts that I made to make my life easier
A Swift script to generate all the icon sizes you need for your Xcode project
Helps to securely store secret assets (such as API keys) in your binary
Graph your Xcode project's dependencies
Open-source web app that converts JSON structures to Swift models
A tiny Measurement Protocol wrapper for use on any platform
I've learnt so much from the Internet, so I want to ensure it remains a trustworthy place for future generations of developers. On my Medium page you can read about some interesting problems I've solved or gain a few ideas for your next project's implementation:

I have also been having recurring and ad-hoc one-on-one sessions with people who are keen on learning iOS development from scratch. If you need a new topic explained to you or are interested in starting a regular mentoring relationship, get in touch!
