Jacob Bijani:

I totally just schooled Marco in Illustrator. He then proceeded to completely blow my mind with PHP.

Yeah, this was a fun exercise. I spent an hour last night (badly) making a (bad) gear icon using Photoshop’s vector tools because I neither have nor know how to use the right tool for the job, Illustrator. I mentioned this to Jacob and he whipped together a perfect one in Illustrator in about 3 minutes.

So then he showed me some of his PHP code for and I taught him about static methods and showed him how much easier it is to accomplish some of these tasks in our custom PHP framework.

Now my app’s toolbar has a proper gear icon and his app is going to have a much more advanced code structure.

It’s good to have people around with different skills.
