Joined a hackathon for an app which requires a server to help parse a few things and send push notifications. Looked up Google push notifications and it seemed decent so I just bookmarked it and left it there for reference during the hackathon. Biiigggg mistake. No idea how to implement the server, couldn't find a tutorial that explains enough for a newbie like me and the Google site didn't help much either. Welp. Google cloud messaging. Never gonna like those words ever.

    GCM is not something you figure out and implement in a few hours, eh?

    @nmaggioni not for me =/ I don't really have much experience in making a server and since it's upstream requires a server in between, it was a real problem for me

    @euph I was not sarcastic indeed, it was quite a hassle to implement for me as well, the first time :)
