Last week we conducted an experiment: what did people want from our forums?
Well a lot of people chimed in and voted! The voting was very close with a few lead changes. In the end the new format won the day! Well in the process of reading the comments left by voters we discovered 3 things:
For the past month Verizon (BIG Red) has been trying to push an OTA for my HTC Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt is a great device, but it does have a tendency to randomly restart itself now and then. This OTA promised to fix that, but it also contained a deuche bag's treasure trove of VCast bloatware.
I rejected the OTA.
Now the prompt alerting me to this "Special offer from Verizon Wireless" indicated that I could Accept the bloatware piece of junk OTA, I could Defer it, or I could outright Reject it.
I Rejected it.
Hey there, Buddies!
WiBit.Net has a challenge for all you aspiring Objective-C Developers! We want to help you become the best Mac OSX and/or iOS developers you can be.
After you complete the “Programming in Objective-C” course you are left with a basic iPhone Tic Tac Toe game. It’s cool, because you made it, but it sucks because the AI is lame.
WiBit.Net is planning a revision of the Tic Tac Toe game with a few small upgrades. One of them could be your code!
It’s kind of funny listening to different developers. Everyone rationalizes their preferences in different ways (some rational some not). Today’s mobile development is one of the more fiercely dividing topics I’ve seen since becoming a professional. Don’t get me wrong, there is always a debate to be had between developers! But this topic goes pretty deep and there is a lot to gain and loose depending on which platform reigns supreme. This debate rivals the platform debates of the past, simply because mobile application development is “the next big thing”.
Many of you may have noticed that we've had some down time as of late. You also may have noticed a whole new course for Objective-C out there for you to watch. These happening at the same time are not a coincidence. They are, in fact, directly linked!
Alright Wibiters! We are starting to get some momentum here. Bryan and I are dangerously close to completing the Objective-C course. We will initially release about 10 hours of material. In case you’re wondering, that is a lot! We really tried hard to design this course around our own learning experiences with the language. Bryan and I have both had opportunities to develop for Mac platforms, including the iPhone and iPad.
