Mac web developer apps
This gist's comment stream is a collection of webdev apps for OS X. Feel free to add links to apps you like, just make sure you add some context to what it does — either from the creator's website or your own thoughts.

|Grab the 'PHP Remote Debugging Client' (the pre-complied xdebug binary for OSX) from here:|
|Unzip it, find the folder that corresponds to the version of PHP you want to install it for and copy the xdebug.so file from there into your php extensions folder in the relevant PHP version directory. E.g. for PHP 5.4:|
|Now open PHP.ini in a text editor:|

UUID (Universally Unique Identifier): A sequence of 128 bits that can guarantee uniqueness across space and time, defined by [RFC 4122][rfc4122].
GUID (Globally Unique Identifier): Microsoft's implementation of the UUID specification; often used interchangeably with UUID.
UDID _(Unique Device Identifier)): A sequence of 40 hexadecimal characters that uniquely identify an iOS device (the device's Social Security Number, if you will). This value can be retrieved through iTunes, or found using UIDevice -uniqueIdentifier. Derived from hardware details like MAC address.

There are many tutorials floating around the web that almost get you a dynamic VPN in EC2. The goal of this tutorial is to be a one-stop-shop for this specific setup.
Modern Cocoa development involves a lot of asynchronous programming using blocks and NSOperations. A lot of APIs are exposing blocks and they are more natural to write a lot of logic, so we'll only focus on block-based APIs.
Block-based APIs are hard to use when number of operations grows and dependencies between them become more complicated. In this paper I introduce asynchronous semantics and Promise type to Swift language (borrowing ideas from design of throw-try-catch and optionals). Functions can opt-in to become async, programmer can compose complex logic involving asynchronous operations while compiler produces necessary closures to implement that logic. This proposal does not propose new runtime model, nor "actors" or "coroutines".
