Episode 123 - Crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside.

Again it’s a little late as I have been really busy. In this episode Scotty and John talk about how to build teams. Should Apple open an engineering office away from Cupertino and if so where. Scotty starts looking at OS X Server and potential cloud hosts for said server. (He would like to hear from people who have tried using it OS X Server or cloud OS X hosting). John shares his first experience of trying to develop an iOS 8 extension and they both talk about the current “can you make money on the app store” debate.
