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:
Simply position the transparent rectangle over any text that is appearing on your macOS computer's screen to instantly translate it into any language!
An iOS app that helps you grab high-quality frames from any video or live photo and save them as an image.
Screensharing on your Mac? Need to draw a diagram or highlight some content? Quick Draw is here to help.
Tired of Netflix' description spoiling what happens in the next episode? Spoilern't is a Firefox extension to blur out spoilers.
Shows Instagram slideshows on your Apple TV (discontinued - Instagram revoked our API access soon after launch)
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
A Swift framework for fluent validation (that you shouldn't use)
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:
A quick idea on how a simple function can make your setup closures much neater

I'm always looking out for what I might be able to build next - so get in touch! LinkedIn is a good place to start 😊
