It was 4:30 am when I finally got the app uploaded and into the Apple queue.
Santa Scan is not yet available on the App Store, but I have finally tossed it over the fence to the App Store review team. With Christmas coming soon, I had to make the final push and get this done, no matter how late I stayed up. No sense letting a Christmas app slip to January or even late December. The app itself was done early in the night, but I spent the rest of the night dealing with the new (to me) maze of certificates and provisioning profiles and weird errors bundling and uploading the app.
As it turns out, nobody at my kid’s school got the word that I had stayed up so late. They proceeded to start class as normal at 7:45 am, and my daughter still expected me to get her there. Then it was off to my own day job.
Later, I happened to be listening in the car to the audiobook Insanely Great about the creation of the original Macintosh computer. There was a three-word quote from Steve Jobs to the Macintosh team during the struggle and setbacks of development. “Real artists ship”, he said. Did Steve Jobs just call me a real artist? 😉
