Merry Christmas 2014!

Check out our geeky Christmas song video for 2014 – and Merry Christmas!


  • Other, Other, Other

As you may or may not know, we have a tradition where each year, we sing a silly Christmas song about a geeky topic.

This year, we have made a song titled “Xcode Crash”, sung to the tune of “Jingle Bells.” We hope you enjoy – and we apologize in advance for our singing! :]

Lyrics and Credits

Parsing through code (Matthijs Hollemans)
Not one line astray (Mic Pringle)

Now to Swift we go (Eric Cerney)
Time to crash away! (Eric Cerney)
Dreaded popup rings (Chris Belanger)
Making faces bright (Vicki Wenderlich, Ray Wenderlich, Samantha Schulz, and B.C. Phillips)
What fun it is to rage and scream (Ellen Shapiro)
when SourceKit crashes tonight! (Tammy Coron)

Oh! Xcode crash (Joshua Greene and family)
Xcode crash (Cesare Rocchi)
Xcode crash away (Brian Moakley)
Oh what fun it is to code (Chris Belanger)
With SourceKit in my way – hey! (Matthijs Hollemans)

Xcode crash, Xcode crash (Tim Mitra)
Xcode crash away (Ellen Shapiro)
Oh what fun it is to code (Eric Cerney)
With SourceKit in my way! (Eric Cerney)

Oh what fun it is to code (Brian Moakley)
With SourceKit (Mic Pringle)
in my way! (Vicki Wenderlich, Ray Wenderlich, Samantha Schulz, and B.C. Phillips)

Special thanks to Ellen Shapiro for the guitar music and background singing, and Chris Belanger for the piano music!
