Bindroid - A Binding Framework for Android
I'll admit it -- I was spoiled by my days on the Silverlight team, playing with XAML, .NET, and databinding. When I started building Android versions of my apps, I went in with the expectation of a similarly modern, powerful UI framework, but quickly found myself frustrated by the complexity of creating UI that tracks values as they change in my application.
How Barbershop Harmony Has Helped My Career in TechI'm a software engineer. I'm also completely addicted to an incredible hobby: barbershop. I've been reflecting lately on the impact of this thing I've grown to be so passionate about over a very short amount of time on the development of my career, and I've realized it's been pivotal for me. It's kept me grounded, built my network, given me a reason to build cool things, helped me find the confidence and courage to do things I never thought I'd do, and been a huge amount of fun in the process. I wanted to share a bit about why I'm so excited about it, and why it (or any other hobby) might hold some similar value for other aspiring engineers.
Hi all! I know it's been a while since I last blogged, but I've been hard at work. Since January, I've been excitedly working at a startup called Parse, working hard to make building rich, connected mobile apps easy. Parse provides a ready-made backend for your mobile app, and it allows you to go from zero to app in no time. I use it for my own apps (across all platforms), and we've got lots of folks building amazing things on our platform. I'm extremely proud of the work we do, and I think everyone that is doing mobile app development should give it a close look and see if it meets their needs.
Pitch Perfect for iOS now available
Wow, it's been a very long time since I've posted, but so much has happened in the last year. I joined an incredible startup called Parse, and am working on things I've never been more excited about.
Pitch Perfect for Android now available
Once again, I’m very excited to announce that I’ve finished porting my digital pitch pipe application, “Pitch Perfect” from its original Windows Phone 7 incarnation to Android, and it’s now available for free (ad-based) from the Android marketplace! I hope you’ll give it a try. I got some great feedback on Tag Master, and I hope to continue to get great feedback on Pitch Perfect. I hope you’ll give it a try, and tell me what you like and what you don’t! I know I’m not the best in the world when it comes to app aesthetics, but I hope it’s pleasant enough to use and functional. It’s been a nice little personal side project for me, and hearing about people using these apps is a blast!
