So I’ve been working on a web app to start building up my portfolio, and it’s been running great over the past couple of months… on Windows Chrome and Firefox. However, I’ve just tested my project on my friends Mac, and it seemed to fall apart in iOS both on Chrome and Safari.
I’ve also just come to the realization that a lot of hiring managers/engineers on hiring committees probably use a Mac. Uh-oh… I don’t have Mac, so I can’t really test for bugs for iOS users…
Am I killing my chances of being hired by not optimizing my web app for iOS users? How does this reflect on my portfolio? I would prefer not to dish out on buying a Mac just for testing purposes - but, is this inevitable as someone pursuing web development as a profession? Should I just bite the bullet, sell a kidney and buy one now?
