New devRant web app for desktop is now live! (https://devrant.com - the .com will now redirect to feed if you are logged in) Let us know what you think, and especially if you spot any bugs (very likely some slipped through). Some cool new features are still in development, will be out shortly.65
Modern web development is fucked. Just absolutely, totally screwed up.
I want to create a simple to do list web app. Look for a tutorial: "OK guys, this is really easy, it just takes five minutes."
First step, install these:
Second step, npm install about one million modules. Don't question what they do or why they're there.
Before you know it, six hours have passed and you've got a code base of 3GB and you haven't even _started_ on your app.
FUCK that shit! I can create this web app with Internet Explorer and Notepad.48
Android Development be like:
- Has great idea for app or feature
- Boots up PC
- Starts android studio and creates new project
- Build error
- Gradle build failed
- Android studio crashes
- Java Error
- Shutsdown PC
- Goes and hangs himself
Pretty accurate if you ask me 😀😀😀😎18
Interviewer: "Do you know Xamarin?"
Me: "I mean I know C# but not app development"
Interviewer: "You're hired!"
Thats pretty much how my interview went12
Signed up for an Android course at my uni and expected to have some fun with Android Studio and modern app development technologies...
Turns out that we're working with Blockly (no coding). We will write our exam with Blockly. The course is mandatory and I cannot opt out.
I've been a dev since 7 years and I am dead inside already.14
Techy name? Check.
Word which ends with "er" but scrap the E? Check.
A .io domain? Check.
This is a hipster app.8
I got board and decided to make a weather app.
I have designed everything except the font which is Open Sans.
The app will be created on Electron and will be my first entry into that world.
It is currently in the design phase but thought it might be nice to share it's development with you guys.
I hope you like it and as always feedback is more than welcome.72
I'm about to put an iframe in an Angular app that displays a Java applet. This isn't development, it's a suicide note10
Friend: Do you think you could make an app that does X?
Me: Yes but I'm not an app developer so haven't had much experience with app design so might take a while
Also friend: What sort of programmer are you? It's basic shit
My friends don't seem to understand that the programming loop for game development (Mostly background asset management) and app development is like trying to ask why a bull and a bull frog won't breed...Yes they both have bull in the name but they are 2 fucking different cunting things...8
Currently building code for an app for a website using nothing more than my tablet, it sucks being out of country when you're trying to work😡😡😡14
- Take a course called "Mobile Application Development"
- Teacher is new and is thus lost on how things work because there is no formal training for them
- Teacher only knows Objective-C so that's all we're allowed to use
- Nobody owns a Mac and I think one or two people had an iPhone/iPad
- Only 4 public Mac computers are available to the school
- One to two people are on them frequently, limiting our time on them as well
- Not a part of the schools normal imaging and updating system, so we get to do it ourselves, which takes up like a week or two of classes (4 classes)
- This includes installing XCode and getting Apple IDs
- No real instructions are given besides "implement the APIs for Facebook, Twitter, and Google Maps into an app"
- Being an ass, for the final day instead of showing off the app we made I made a PowerPoint of my dislike of Objective-C and various struggles I ran into and how I decided not to make the app at all.
- shrug emoji4
Why do some non-devs treat professional app development like some kids craft-making hobby that requires zero skill and knowledge or brain?
A friend (with ZERO knowledge about coding) said to me today, teach me, or tell me how to learn this app development, I'll learn it within a month and make my own apps plus do freelance app work in free time, apps fetch plenty of money easily. Blah blah.
Not the first time, other non dev friends have talked in the same way on other instances.
It's insulting and infuriating. I don't even know what to reply.7
Me: Why is there such a delay between the app and the hardware device?
Colleague: Ah, same old same old, TCP is just an inefficient protocol. We should stop development and build our own replacement to TCP.
(PS. The actual problem was his code)9

This is what i tell my debugger each time i run an application...
Joining the duck family with SpiderDuck. Let's see how my new companion will guide me through the learning of android app development this year.3
My life is hell
Got selected for in a start-up
Went the other day to finalize things
Bastard of a boss makes me wait for 2 hours
Then calls me and says "I have seen your game and i know your potential,,My development team isn't able to make this app,so I want you to do it alone,,Plus i want it better than out competitors product,and oh,,make for iOS as well"
Someone tell that bastard that unity game development and Android app development are 2 very different fucking things
Surely getting fured with lot of humiliation
How to develop Android apps -
1. CTRL + C, CTRL + V, CTRL + C, CTRL + V...
2. ALT + ENTER, ALT + ENTER...7
Built my first little app and put it on my phone 👶 it's not much and comes mainly from a udemy course, but hey it's a step.9
Product manager: "Programmers are limitted to computer programs, that's why app developers can do mobile devices too!"
Me: "Programmers are not limited to computer programs, its a general skill"
Product Manager: "Then why App
Development is a career?"3
I honestly do not understand why clients, with no understand of development at all, think they know more than the developer.
I do not understand why these people think they know what can and cannot be done within a given timeline.
If it's so damn easy, why aren't you making the damn website/app yourself????
I created an app that would let people in software development and general I.T related fields to bitch about shit and just rant about stuff.
But two glorious assholes stole it from me. So no startup.13
Client: We want to onboard people with sign-up wizard just like (Massive Industry Leader) so remove the sign-up process from the app.
1 week of development later...
Client: We need to take photos of their information, but we think its easier to take photos on the phone so once they sign-up link then to the phone.
Me: How will they get the apps if it not in the app stores?
Client: Get the apps approved for the app store! duh!
2 weeks later... 4 failed app submissions..
Client: Would it be easier if we just add the sign-up on the app?
Me: Yes... like it was 3 weeks ago?
Client: Yes! Why did we remove it?
Me: You did in an effort to be more like (Major Industry Leader)
Client: ....but we're nothing like them! Change it back!
I have to fire my client...3
People generally ask me that how do you do app development so easily. I replied "Common sense which is not so common."3
Taking a class on Android Development. I'm mostly teaching myself here. But it's fun to start diving into the world of designing apps. Here's a picture of my current app. It's not much but it's a good start I think13
While I fucking hate front end and app development, I also hate that I'm so fucking dependant on them for the development of services and such.
Right now I'm developing a suite of services with a mate and while the backend and security (+linux servers) are something I'm good at, I find it hard sometimes to continue without being able to see my API's in action through apps and good looking interfaces.
My mate is currently handling that part but he has way less time than I do and thus I sometimes have to create interfaces to even just be able to see how my shit would work irl.
I can't fucking stand this and it sometimes entirely drains my motivation but there's also no fucking way in hell that I'll dive into frontend and/or app development.
Hopefully seeing the app that I've been working on for months officially released and on both the App store and google play store.
That frustrating moment when you have an excellent app idea but a similar app already exists with over 50,000 downloads 😭😭😭4
"Why does my app have so many bugs!?"
"Why does literally nothing work!?"
"How come you cant fix these problems soon enough?"
Me: "remember how you didnt account for testing in the budget or development plan?"
Me: "thats why."2
Even Apple believes that Xcode suggestions are not reliable... 😂😂😂
(From App Development with Swift book in iBooks Store from Apple)6
Just discovered this App, created my account to say Hello and create my first rant. I'm already in love!
To my Person:
*during project development, we use a library as core of tye app*
Manager: We need to add feature X.
Me: The library developer announced that this feature is not supported.
Manager: why is that?
Me: *giving some tech explanation*
Manager: ok, but still we need it urgently, we told the client we already have it.
Just a simple day on my work9
So it's 11:32,
I can't wait to go to bed, finished development for the day but then my boss sez can you make a sketch up of how the building plans for the app would look?
Tested out my first app and it worked beautifully. I’m a projectionist and I made this to give me a constant visual feed of projector communication connection. Still in development, not ready for deployment yet. But it works!
I’m posting here because although this site did not help me technically, it definitely helped me emotionally. ;)6
When you accidentally publish the testing version of your app to the production channel instead of the beta channel... 😣3
Today I learned that mobile development is a lot more difficult than web development and I’m never going to scoff at a badly designed mobile app ever again.6
Picking the web development field and becoming more of a business person than a dev.
I want to develop more interesting things (like games, AI, etc) rather than corporate websites and web apps. Now, I can't even write a mobile app ffs.
I can't even work on my hobby project lately.6
.Net is masterrace.
C# gives me frequent orgasms.
Use SQL Server for DB, add to that parallel querying and NoSQL capabilities.
Incredible development speed with EF
Incredebly powerful web framework...check
AI and neural networks...check
If you want to do some of that functional programming F# is the language for you.
And the best thing: .Net core runs on Linux too10
My German bank really needs some better mobile devs. I just tried to do a bank transfer. For some reason, it strips away all letters out of a previously saved IBAN number, and only gives you a keypad for input, so you can't even change it back -.-17
Got so many. (remember where I am from? 😁) Gonna share my favorite first.
X : I want a web app that my staffs can use and update data from different branches.
Me : Ok I can development such project.
X : But I want them it offline so they can use the app even with slow internet or no internet.
Me : 💀
// The data are shared across the branches BTW.5
(biggest facepalm moment)
So this happened...
We were suppose to submit a project in the name of app development.
Being our first app, it was a simple Android app having simple features which any e-commerce app would have.
On the day of evaluation, we handed our mobile (which already had our app) to our evaluator, to have a feel of our app.
After few swipes here and there, the evaluator said this,(which blew our mind)...
Don't be so smart,... Here take my IPhone and run your app on it! I want to see if it works on my IPhone like it does on yours or not.
The next thing our group was doing was to look at each other's face,.. completely stunned what to say next!
(If confused, read tags...) :/3
I swear preparing an app update that's going to be deployed to 500+ people stresses me tf out.
I hope I'm not the only one who feels this way.10
Every time I see a software development company ad on fb I have to resist the urge comment "I have a great app idea, can you make me something like fb but better?"1
Visual Studio (Code)
-Cross-Platform App Development
-Lightweight (Installer VS2017)
-Many of Langs (C#, js, Python, F#,...)
-Data Science Tools built in
Desktop, Pushing updates - Ok let me check my site on mobile now.
On mobile ( after half hour, on devRant ) .."Damn I have to check the site"1
Hi all, first rant.
I work on an app on the Shopify platform, which requires me to look at the front end of people’s Shopify stores about half the day.
Can we PLEASE get the Shopify devs together and convince them to put a hard limit on the number of pop ups and slide ins and modal apps a single store can have running??? When a user (or app developer) can’t click on a product to buy it (or test installation) because ‘spin the wheel’ and ‘join the mailing list’ and ‘Karen in Ohio just bought a toaster’ won’t stop popping into the view, your UX is shit.
I realize people could still actually go in and build these things into their store code - but I’m willing to bet VERY few would.
Thanks - rant over.2
The fuck is wrong with android development?!
Every little shit app depends on Google-Services.
Oh you want this app that essentially just keeps track of your homework?
Well fuck you, because we decided to display a login-with-google popup at the start and now, the app won't run if you use an ungoogled ROM.6
- read the official documentation
- implement the logic in your app using what you learned
- find out that at least one method is always deprecated
- read the updated API and, as always, check out your loyal friend Stack Overflow.2
I study and work as a tech support guy in a company and the head of Android development wanted to speak to me : want to help us with some changes in the app? Now I am a junior Android developer. Not even mad 🤔3
Only if people understood the amount of effort that goes behind building a simple app.
Even if it's a simple notes app, I've to design the UI (at least 2 different activities - 1 for the list and the other for editing notes), write the code which makes it run i.e. without which the app is just a piece of empty design, think about what data
structures to use (that notes you are saving need to be stored somehow) and then club everything together and hope nothing breaks (spoiler alert: something will definitely break).
People need to understand that it's not just putting some fancy buttons and boxes around. Also, I'm not just making the app for one device. I've to make sure it works on different screen sizes, different versions of the OS (a user can't imagine how many functions need to be re written because something got deprecated in the process and I'd to switch to something different).
Also I'm not just sitting at my computer and converting coffee to code. I've to think about the flow, structure, design, navigation, backend etc. Of the app; most of my time isn't spent writing code but thinking/studying how to write the code. I also need to wait while the project is compiling/building every time I want to test it.
A function which you think is hard to implement night be really easy while something you claim is easy might be a nightmare. Oh and I didn't even mention how I need to stick to some design guidelines to make the app look consistent with the rest of the OS.
If you're wondering why a developer is spending most of his time on a browser, he isn't playing internet games or browsing reddit ( at least you better hope not), he's probably looking at the docs/stack overflow to get something to work/fix something!
Wow! That was long. Thanks!3

After work and everyday I used all the free/lowcost learning resources i could get my hands on. GRIND, GRIND, GRIND! Never give up! I used to come home after working construction from 7am to 9-11pm, shower, code til 3am, repeat. I didnt have the luxury of a single day off for months on end. Even an hour a night is one hour closer to your dreams each day 🖒🖒🖒
Also to keep you/me motivated I made an awesome high spirited music playlist, look at your life then look at the music videos and realize as a developer that could be your reality. God Bless!

1. Learn android development
2. Spend more time coding than procastinating (its not my job)
3. Learn more cpp
4. Publish my first android app
5. Finish my current project2
I think my manager is angry on me or something.
I told him that I can do mobile app development as well as make API. He said nah, let's just out source it to this India based company and I can do the support once it's on production.
My client requested me to release the source code to their development team today. They are going to handle the further development from now. Client has paid for the app in full.
That wasn't a good news to me.6
"I made a PWA, I'm a mobile app developer"
Me: No fuck off, you're a lazy cunt that doesn't want to learn native development.5
1. Would have learned Android app development using Kotlin by wk 200
2. Done with machine learning by wk200
3. Would upload my own apps on google play store.
4. Buy a new laptop with my own earned money.7
So yesterday I was testing my friend's app which as said by him is 100% okay.
I found 48 major bugs and reported him. His reaction was "Dude these are just minor issues and client don't even know about it. See there is some real bugs?"
RIP to the app developer and the client.
Why the fuck is this apple stuff so fucking expensive?
I want to dig into IOS app development but I am seriously considering not to do it because it's fucking expensive...
I am a young dev (in apprenticeship) and my company offered me a phone. That's great because I can save the money that I would have payed for my phone bill.
But sadly it's an iPhone... I thought why not make something cool out of it and start learning IOS development.
But so far all I saw from IOS development are extreme high costs...
Is there some kind of student plan or anything that makes it cheaper to learn?
Can you guys give me any advice on this?
I own an old MacBook but I need a new OS on it... (long story)
Are there anymore hidden costs? Any tips where to start?
Thanks for your help fellow ranters and sorry for the half rant half question12
Is it just me or do others also question their decisions regularly during a project?
Is this the best framework to accomplish this task? Should really I name the function like this?...
Currently thinking about whether Qt is the right framework for (cross platform) app development. Guess the grass is always greener on the other side...7
So i was talking to my client the other day and this is what happened....
Me: So what features do you want in the Progress Tracker in the app.
Client: (takes his IPAD out and opens the FitBit app) This is a really nice progress tracker.
Me: Alright so what features would you like in Progress Tracker, eg: would you maybe like them to check in everyday making sure that they have done exercise or something.
Client: *Shows me his goal in steps (which was 10,000 if anyone was wondering) and shows me other features of the app and not telling me what to do in his own one* These look nice.
Me: Alright so do you want a Step Tracker, Calories Tracker etc.
Client: Nooooo, I want other things.
Me: Ok lets get discussing what are these "other things"
Client: *Continues to show me the FitBit app*
The designer of a new version of an app sent me the the new designs. I immediately noticed the menu-icon in the bottom right. (In a tab bar)
This is not common and even discouraged by design docs of iOS and Android. So I told him that and he thought we could try it.
After scrolling through the designs I saw the screen where the menu was open; the close button was also on the bottom right. I told him that users are not used to have a menu close button on that position. He said "Every other company is doing it wrong, so we're here to make that difference".. The only thing I thought was 'Okay, so Google is doing it all wrong all the time.'.
So now it's in the app and I don't like it.19
Some thoughts about time relations in app dev:
10% - minimal ui & coding main functions
10% - testing
10% - writing web api just for fun
70% - try to "design" an ui
Am I the only one having problems with ui?? 🤔3
Any fun self-hosted app or useful services you guys use on your own server?
For some weeks I have started to host my own git repository with gogs and take continious development into my control with jenkins and feel pretty neat.
Now I understand why my grandmother loves to raise her own food even when she could buy everything in the supermarket.11
Came across an app that I really liked, but unfortunately, development has ceased for it. That also means I can't pay for it in order to get a license key. So what's a developer to do?
After decompiling it, I placed inside the code that I paid for the app 😂
.field public static final MARKET:Ljava/lang/String; = "paid"
I keep telling myself I'll start to learn native android development but everytime I even attempt, it's just so overwhelming!
Just purchased a moto 360 gem 2 so I want to get into watch app development or even just watch faces but can't even work out how to do anything :-(
Ugh, guess I'll have to swallow my pride and tutorial it up!2
Her: How do you make an app?
Me: Well, first you have to decide what language you want to use as the basis for coding it, or what system you want to start on ex: ios/Android
Should I use this app if I don't know any programming languages. I'm thinking I should learn C# for Game Development.66
Flutter is basically how my poor soul trying to get compatible with my 6 different personalities and ends up being a disappointment from time to time.4
I studied BS Computer Science and one of our requirements is our thesis. All of the groups in our section proposed Web Based apps and got rejected because web based apps are too common. So we have no choice so all of us proposed mobile apps. Mobile Development is not in our curriculum so we have to teach ourselves during the development of our thesis.
All of the groups' dev collaborated and taught each other except one group, my group. Since I am a lazy motherfucker, I didn't taught myself how to develop a mobile app (android). So I made a web based app with responsive design, purchased my own domain, used android studio's webview and voila, a mobile app with a web based admin.
P.S. We got the best thesis award.3
devRant app should be Open Source for us to help in the development
I think A LOT of us would try to bring ideas and improvements to the app and service overall :)12
I will buy myself a new notebook in around 2 1/2 months and I would like to know your opinions.
I do web development and Android app development. I will most likely put arch linux on it. It will be my main workstation and I would also like to us it for university to which I will go in 3 years.
My current favorite is the Dell XPS 15.
Do you have any other suggestions or is the Dell good?19
*Furiously cracks fingers and starts typing*
When I first tried out mobile app development some weeks ago I found it pretty fun. Now when I have a internship with a company to create a Android app I was kind of excited. Now after just a week I don't think I will come back to Android development again. Android studio eats my RAM and made my computer hang itself, and the thing I despise the most is gradle! AS f**ks with my gradle also so now they are all gone and i'm trying to rewrite them by myself...
*Furiously tries to calm down*10
* 2.5 years of experience in app development.
I experiment and use new things in each and every app but still something was missing,
Got a long leave, now I am gonna make a ton of apps trying everything I have wanted to, architecture possibilities, all the library ideas I have, full-fledged, full throttle baby !! Yay !!
Just graduated university and got a high paying internship (well, high paying to someone whos never been paid) in my field of chemical engineering, feeling quite lucky
Cant wait to upgrade my PC, it was a beast when I built it in 2012 but nowadays running chrome and android studio is enough to make it commit suicide
Goals for 2019:
Publish my first android app
Learn web development
Become an AWS guru
Not spend all my income on PC parts
Ive watched a bunch of web development crashcourses/trends and (comming from desktop appplication development) omfg what a nightmare mess of confusing stuff but alas i shall prevail or die trying7
Progressive Web Apps(PWA) are freaking awesome !!
Its the future of Apps !!
I fuckin love it how you can just download the app by visiting the website !
Its gonna cut down Development costs alot!
5 years down the line, its gonna be fire🔥7
var _self = Object.create(Rant);
Hello devs I'm back
A few months ago I joined a software development company and I was pretty specific that I wasn't going to do support or maintenance only feature development, well, this past 3 months I've been doing dev helping stablish good practices and a better architecture for the app, but guess who is joining a support team tomorrow, they sold me the idea of a refactor team, I was trilled and accepted, now they tell me it's a legacy bug fixing team, damn I hate this crap, hope y'all doing better5
I'm so confused with this app right now. I've seen very few rants and mostly just photos making fun of various issues that occur in software development work culture.5
Spent quite some time getting the UI of a redux weather app im working on. Below is the final design i have in the app at the moment. Sre thefe any good places to have standards as designs or does it fall away with cross platform development with redux?1
Colleagues at my part-time job:
"You study programming right? Amazing we've got this great app idea, we'd love to see a finished product in 2 months"
I teach app development over the summer, and the great thing about working with kids and having the last name Wayne is that I can very easily have them refer to me as Batman. I've never felt so cool.
Day no.1 with Googles scholarship course ad udacity..
I learned that a line of code is "pew" so many lines of code is "pew pew pew". Now I'm ready to do serious android app development.2
Recently, Android development, because it feels good to think about an app idea in your mind, write the code, and seeing it working in your phone or tablet; very rewarding.3
Thinking of using Xamarin for the development of a mobile app for a side project. Yea or nay? Android and iPhone.4
YikYak will probably be used as a lesson in app development on what not to do. They killed their entire app in a single release. Biggest mistake was never listening to their users.7
Yesterday I had a conversation with a mobile app development company to make a clone of the current contacts app. 3 points from 10 mins conversations;
1. They offered me for a working prototype in just 35% of actual app development cost. They'll take 15 days to work on that. ( Me: "Do you mean the prototype that I created in 40 mins using invision and sent you its video recording?" after a little argument they agreed that they meant the same.)
2. They said they will have to embed the complete search engine in the app. (Really!! we never name searching in DB as "search engine")
3. They said they'll take approx 15 days in UI and UX. (Me: "will you change the designs I shared?" They: "It is our internal process, we can't give much detail on that")1
I wanna start learning mob app development. Which should i choose amongst these and why?
1) React Native
3) ios native app development.
At the end my focus is to earn more from which ever the tech stack i choose.
Mobile App Development vs. Web Development as a career? It doesn't matter. Do your job well. Sometimes, you can't control where they put you.
Guys, What is the future of Kotlin? Is it a dead end? I mean many companies still use Java and google also released Dart for cross platform app development in previous years. Is there any point in learning Kotlin?17
The beginning of my small app. Just a small question to the devRant community. As I am relatively new in Android app development I was wondering which layout is okay to work with?
The reason behind this question is that I have found that sometimes I'd move a component(e.g., button, text field) by a small fraction and boom! everything else is messed up.11
Everyone and their mom has an app idea they want you to code. Friend enthusiastically invites me on to work on a project, under the premise that he wants to learn development, seems legit. A few weeks later I'm building the entire app, and my friend still hasn't written a single line of code. Now he wants to pay me to finish building the app by myself and I am NOT feeling it AT ALL. UGH.... can anyone relate??1
My app is finally on the Apple App Store.
The rant: how bloody difficult was it to get on there?! They scrutinise EVERYTHING. My promo copy, my screengrabs and also it seems that there is code that works on iPhone that doesn’t work on iPad.
I thought it was designed to be the same for ease of development? However I found a function that works perfectly well on iPhone but breaks iPad.
Anyway I guess in the long run this keeps the App Store’s quality level high and it isn’t the Wild West like the google play store. However it’s still pretty annoying. I can see why devs get angry about Apple’s process.2
One day you're looking for a job for almost half a year, and the next you're being called by a company because they stumbled upon your resume (indirect path) ?dafuq? Wel today was that day, i hope I pass the intake though, wish me luck1
Having my last day at this company today!!! So looking forward to the new job. No more customers I have to talk to, no more deadlines, no more fucking app development.
Going to be the lead SEO and e-Commerce guy in a relatively big company, with my own small team, finally my own office again - and less development (but will still develop about 20% of the time).
Gonna be awesome, but first, I get to have 3 weeks vacation to renovate my house 😁1
Me: I need some time to understand this app(taking over it from another developer without explanation)
Boss: I need to bill the client, please finish all the pending features.
No seriously, tell me more about how leveraging React-Native for sections of the app and creating these custom architecture patterns is going to revolutionise mobile development. I'm all ears.6
I don't think this question is formal enough to ask on SO. So I'll just ask it on here.
I'm pretty sure I've committed several development felonies in this code, but is there an easier way to manage multiple textviews that are similar to each other in this code? https://github.com/BaconatorNoVeg/...
Hello guys, what do you think about Tim Berners-Lee's attempt to decentralize the web? Will Solid be the future of web app development or will it just vanish ?7
So I just got asked for a quote for developing an app for a client's friend. He wanted an app that requires me to build let's just say a combination of what you see on uber with the live tracking of your uber driver, seeing all cars around your location and determining the closest one (It wasn't necessarily cars) plus profiles and another app for another set of users (I can easily make this one and determine the logged in user and in turn tailor the features for that user but they wanted two). An admin portal also was included and I had to do various integrations with Google maps. In app purchases was also necessary. Logs as the app has to keep track of all activities basically. A wallet feature was also to be implemented, scheduling, rating and complains section was also something requested and finally a mini accounting system was also to be developed. I was going to do this singlehandly as a freelancer. Obviously this is a lot of work. I also gave them a timeline of about 3 months for development. Which meant I was going to be putting all my time into developing this. Front end and backend for the app and front-end and backend for the server and database architecture. I charged them $10,000 not only for the work but also because they were going to be making money off of the app. They go "wow and why does it cost so much"...Judging from their reactions I don't think they will move further with this with me because of costs...😂 I can't even begin to wonder why they think that isn't a fair price. I have learnt from previous work before that you always state a cost for which you are absolutely sure you would want to work for else you would start doing the work and once you see how little you are being paid for so much work you end up hating the work and completing it ends up being a difficult task.10
Cross-Platform mobile development sucks.
I will spend more tie but deliver more elegant app2
Apps are getting saturated now, i dont think if app development has a future anymore.
No matter what you make its quiet difficult to beat the top 10 trending apps.13
Started my first private App project using all the goodies of 2017 android development like TDD, Android architecture components (hence MVVM), kotlin (which I yet have to learn), RxJava2 (if I need it additionally to AAC) and maybe try to set up a CI environment.
Wish me luck guys and girls 😁
Hi, so I want to get into Android App development.
I know the basics of Java and I have already written some simple apps with Java.
However I would like to get more serious with it and now I wonder if I should directly start writing apps in Kotlin or if I should write them in Java.7
my two friends and i might start an app/web development service.
the question is: how are three high school kids going to find clients that are ok with high school kids maintaining their apps & websites?9
I've just started learning Objective-C and Cocoa Touch so I can make iOS apps.
I reckon this "mobile" thing has got legs. I want to get in there on the ground floor with app development before everyone's at it.4
I don't think devrant would work very well in landscape orientation, but could we please get reverse portrait orientation?
I don't know shit about app development but I'm pretty sure that is an option.8
So I just came back from an interview and the job turned out to be another desktop app to web migration...
I do do web development but still prefer C#, other compiled languages with strict syntax checking, and don't run in a web browser.
But it seems everything is going to JS these days and the web....
Should I just go all in on web dev and I guess I can use Cordova or React Native if I want a desktop app?5
I am a fresher in web development. I have already learnt to use nodejs, react, angular, vanilla js and made many projects. Majority of the work I feel is just CRUD based, sure there are some exciting things but they are only of a small percentage.
All that innovation HAPPENING is just glorified way of making a CRUD APP ONLY.
Oh mvc worked great on server side let's bring it to client side
OH mvc is such a mess, who thought about doing this.
Oh react redux is so revolutionary let's remake our app using it,,
Oh es6 fuck yeah, Babel, webpack sure, now my crud app is super performant.
Oh graphql, motherfucking cutting edge CRUD APP......
I need to know what's next, is there any breaking of this cycle11
I want to learn app development but, due to some reasons I cannot buy a laptop now. And my current laptop is way too old to support android studio. So I planned to utilize this time to learn web development.
I have made a website which can be used to put emojis in your webpage.
Although, the JS section will be added in further version( after I've finished learning 😅), still it can be used by copy and pasting the cdn and image names.

Built my first App - the BOFH returns
So I started to learn programming about 7 weeks ago, learned some Java, immersed myself in git and then via a friend got introduced to android studio. To get some practice I decided to code my own app, and what better way than to create a quote generator for the funny and creative error messages as seen in The Bastard Operator from Hell. Now I wrote the thing, started adding a feature and before I know it, it works and I'm contacting the original author, if I may publish it to the playstore.
Io and behold: Merely 32 hours after the idea had sparked, in an act of spontaneous madness I've pubished my first app.
This was an absolutely electrifying experience and a huge feeling of success to me, to see my own creation on my homescreen.
Sorry for annoying you with this antirant, but I just had to get this out!
Btw here's the link if anyone is interested:
Constructive critisism is appreciated!1
That moment when you build your app around a clients development API only to find out their production API responds about 8x slower... I'm sorry, it's not my fault your API server takes 4000 ms for a SIMPLE response. My app isn't the problem. Fix your shit.1
At work, we have a lot of daytime spenders (they just hang around so they do not sit at home all day).
I'm the only one in the entire company with somewhat decent programming experience (and I have to admit that I'm still pretty bad at it).
A few (4) of them have been assigned to one of the biggest projects (potentially even bigger than the one I work on daily) the company has ever had.
here is the fun part:
- 2 of them only just started coding and have no clue what they are doing at all (they heavily struggle with HTML).
- 1 of them overengineers everything (in a bad way) because she doesn't know how to do it somewhat properly.
- 1 of them doesn't even code (only sitting there giving ideas n stuff... basically the "client").
As a bonus point:
- None of them knows how to database
- None of them knows how to back-end
- None of them knows how to design
This is going to be fun, especially since I'm going to refuse to have my hands in there even the slighest outside of recommending stuff (like using a framework, certain libraries etc.) :^)2
Spent the weekend geeking out getting my head around a proper Docker based environment for my development env at home and for the team... 90% done and I couldn't figure out why I couldn't start my Splunk instance up.... I'd set the default logging to Splunk.... Chicken & Egg probs!
But how awesome is docker with portainer and app templates eh?!
One week ago I've made a work plane to divide features development day by day, obviously procrastinating
This morning I realized the project release was today
I made an entire mobile app with a plethora of features without bugs in an afternoon.
Never worked so hard in a so limited time without problems.
So, this week I started working on my first mobile app with Xamarin Forms. I already have a login and register functionality. The mobile app is connected to an Laravel API and SQL database. Happy with the progress so far.
I am new to C# so I had some struggles, but after some days I began to really like it.9
Longest goddamn development time ever on this one app I’m working on. Totally got demotivated for many months. Only now just starting to finish it.
React native never fails to amuse me!
For fuck sake few seconds difference in time between development machine and my phone causes the app to crash on long tap!
The solution on their GitHub was to fix time difference between Android and mac 🤦🏼♂️
What... The.... FUCK!4
Friends do have their uses after all.
Me: I'm still trying to find a to-do app I actually like.
Friend: Don't you make software for a living?
Me: More of a help desk monkey but yes.
Friend: Why don't you just make the app you want?
Me: Because it hadn't occurred to me that I could probably do that until now.
Time to go read up on android development and java.1
I had to argue with my lead today, to prove that docker is actually a container technology and not a CI CD pipeline -_-
That too in the team meeting.
P.S. Not much of his fault though, as ours is a mobile app development team :/5
After much consideration I've decided to learn and use react native over ionic/cordova as I'm going to rewrite most of my views from an existing Web project anyways (if I wanted to make it work with ionic)
I feel anxious and excited at the same time. Hopefully I made the right call.
Anyone here have good experiences switching from ionic to react native?2
@dev-rant @dfox @trogus
I think it would be better for the development of of the app to include a feedback/bug option.
Bug-> I changed my password on a different phone but the current phone didn't ask for the updated password, and logged in.7
Are there any tools, points of reference, barebones templates, bits of advice, etc. that anyone can share or direct me to that could potentially a programmer with ADD stay organised and keep projects/code structured?
Just a bit of background:
I am 29 years old and have battled with severe Attention Deficit Disorder since early childhood. No hyperactivity, just a mind that is constantly running at light speed. I have a tendency to lose focus on the main goal in my projects and I fall victim to feature creep more than I'd like to admit—to the extent that on countless occasions, I've ended up just starting projects over from scratch because they became too convoluted and hectic.
I've spent the past 2~3 months working on a sort of companion app for players of the game Warframe using Dart/Flutter. The main purpose of the app is to provide players with an accessible and customisable agenda to help with keeping in-game goals organised (oh, the irony). I have made a decent amount of progress, but I consistently find myself working on various bits and pieces of code (usually) without finishing each of them before moving on to something else. What I end up with is a tangled yarn ball of code and I get lost and overwhelmed in the chaos.
Any feedback or advice is much appreciated.9
I could do with do advice of the nice people of devRant!
I want to develop a mobile app for iOS and Android, however creating native apps is just too much. I've found a solution for cross platform development such as xamarim, cordova, appcelarator.
I'm just curious to what your experiences have been and which would be a good route to go?10
Quick question to all the other devs. I am learning libgdx(the multiplatform thing) to make an Android app. Would that count as Android experience for future jobs? Or game development? What skills am I building for a resume?5
Can't even find a proper way to learn android app development.. Some tutorials are way too basic and others way too advanced.. Even books arent of much help to me... I know the basics... How do i learn further :/ How do i code without having to look at some example every time ://9
I plan in doing some minor Android app development for a side project when my exams are over (which is in two weeks, yay), but other than using Android on day-to-day basis I'm a total n00b when it comes to development.
I want to write a little app that can communicate with a BLE device. It should encrypt said communication.
I know some python and thought about using Kivy as a frontend since it's cross platform compatible (perhaps I'll make a Linux client, too). But I have no idea whether that's a good idea. Do I absolutely need Java? D:
So - where does one start? Tutorials/books welcome.7
App development in 2019:
1. Open app A
2. Open completely unrelated app B.
3. Scrolling in App B changes the sound in App A. Not raising or lowering volume, mind, but full on dropping samples and warbling the sound.
It's almost impressive how fucked up that is.4
Cons of using an unmaintained app! :/
[About: This is Nokia's Z Launcher. Its development stopped before it even went out of beta, but it's so good I use it anyway. If interested, you can find it on APKMirror.]7
I've been developing Android apps since about 2 years. I learned completely on my own by watching videos and referring websites. Till now I haven't worked on any Big or complex app but now I want sharpen my skills in Android app development,so if anybody needs any sort of Android work to be done I'll be happy to help and there by sharpen my skills..10
I came from being a game developer, to doing VR/AR stuff, to mobile app/game development, to website development, to arduino, IoT and robotics.
... And now most of my time is spent on updating a portal site using a shitty cms with each page needing to be crafted manually using html and deadlines are always a few hours away, with revisions on the launch day itself.
I really wanna go back to the interesting stuff. :/2
My friend was asking can Html, Css , Typescript and C# be use in web/app development together....
PS. Who can answer this and vote...10
I recently started android app development and i wanted to ask if you code entirely in java/kotlin or use xml+java/kotlin ?
I feel like to get better i should code entirely in java/kotlin. Am i wrong?3
That moment when product team ask to revert back to the old version of app after 3 weeks of development because of pm's miss communications.
Many people adviced me to clone apps so I can learn more about Android development. So I started with my favorite app, devRant :)
I posted a few weeks ago about how I started my own mobile app development business. Today, I released its first app. It's a turn by turn navigation app for amusement parks, right now it's only featuring Walt Disney World. If you have an Android the app is called AmuseGO. I'm waiting for apple to approve it.2
Doesn't it suck that we still need to write an app multiple times for different operating systems? I mean for me it seems like how the web was a decade ago. I think we deserve better!
While there are cross-platform frameworks, I feel like the OS vendors must work together to make native development less of a pain in the ass.8
See a stupid neme, trying to get my feet wet in android development, make a "sound board" with 1 buttton that plays 1 sound
> mfw Skiddadle skidoodle is my most successful app with 30 ish concurrent users
Soldmysoul.jpeg for the memes2
If you refused to pay for extended support there's no need for us to "Fix" a problem on your app when there's a new IOS or Android version released.
Sure it might work and no we can't future proof it.
Just pay for extended support and no that's not part of the development.
*Downloads vs community and runs installer*
"An update for the installer needs to be downloaded"
"Installer will now download vs community"
*15gb later, runs vs community and starts new c# console app*
"C# development kit needs to be downloaded"
*Downloads c# development kit*
"Windows updates are ready to be installed"
Fuck. This. Shit.2
Some friends of mine were working on doing neural network image processing and wanted to build a social network for it. I got to play with graph databases, mobile app development, and neural nets. Unfortunately, project never took off, but it was fun nevertheless.
When I created my first app on RaspberryPi. It was an app that watches window sensors and shows the information about windows status (close or open) and shows the information on web application. Тhis was my first time when I faced with embedded development with Python.
So first reflex in looking what Electron development looks like was making a Hello world app. So it just makes a window saying "Hello world".
Then I proceed to editing the menu, and the quit option is "Goodbye world"... and I realized, or at least I thought... this is a bit... grim?1
I spent an entire morning trying to figure out why my development branch of my web app was taking a dump on itself after I rolled it back to production. Only to realize that a config file wasn't in the folder. So I threw away all my changes for nothing.
I'm starting with native mobile development to create an app with a lot of potential.
Since I didn't know a lot about this field (being a full stack web developer) I started doing some research about what technologies I should choose.
The app, having the need to be cross platform, I needed a cross platform toolkit. Although the app could make a move on to truly native code (Swift + Java), it would take a long time; hence I would require a faster short term solution.
The best option was Xamarin (for native code). However, due to certain app requirements, I would have to write a lot of platform specific code; defeating Xamarin's purpose.
The next option was a hybrid mobile app. Ionic2 was the best option here but I don't like ng-2.
In the end I came upon the realisation that a web-app was the only true cross-platform solution.
As I delved deeper into mobile app development, I found out that the webstack lacked a lot. My conclusion was, that for a truly great (cross platform) experience, we need to improve the web domain.
HTML elements can become better (more XAML like). A native templating API, to forgo the need for libraries like ReactJS or VueJS.
Better layout models. Flexbox is good but can improve. CSS should be more like Sass/stylus.
NOTE: These are just my opinions and I'm probably wrong in many places so forgive me.1
I'm bored and I've had an app idea but I wanted to run it by all of you:
Tinder for developers: but it's for meeting potential employees/employers and you post code instead of photos...
If you think it's bad, kindly suggest another. Thanks 😂😝3
After working at one internship: I have covered the basics of Development.
After trying to publish my own app: I know nothing. I'm Jon Snow of programming.2
My first android app, it got me into the field of android development.
It was a simple wallpaper app for Android but it is my most precious project.
Wall Bucket is the name of the app (shameless self-promotion)
I could really get use to mobile app development because I’m really REALLY tired of responsive design.4
Homework for Informatics: Create a Powerpoint about yourself...
Me: That’s no homework, please let us create an app, site or something creative that’s something I prefer.
School life... development is so much nicer1
As a strong supporter of ditching anything other than pure css for layout, finding out flutter has an equivalent of flex box is making my private parts flex-grow: 20;1
Question for you guys.
I have an Android app in which you can track when and how much you have worked, etc., especially aimed at (food) delivery drivers. I know those kind of apps already exist, it's a hobby project :). But I have no idea what to call it.
Been coding for 2 months lazily. Only know very basic html. Started learning java and android app development. I can change the hello World text lol. Any general advice?4
So here is the question.
Am a CS student and interested in app development languages like C++ and C#. And leaning a lot about those languages and practicing.
Today in our class some member from **** company came and they told us that are going to arrange a 2 days workshop for php, JS, Ajax, HTML and CSS languages. After that they are going to offer a internship also. 😃
So should I go or not?
Intrested in app development but still wanted to have knowledge about web. Really confused on what to do! 😕😕😕8
I am really being tested with my creativity in naming conventions with these two sites rn.
Site 1 is a blog for a place called "The Post", so literally everything is called .post
Site 2 is a development built out of shipping containers, where each container is a different features of the property... just like a container would wrap features in their app🤦♂️3
Thoughts on Flutter!
I'd like to see something like flutter for front end web development. I like the approach used by Google for Hybrid app development.
Dart language fits perfect for the case. Static typing, OOPS, Generics, state management, UI design everything right out of the box.
I don't have to create layout separately like HTML in web or XML in android.
Everything is managed by Dart alone.
It's like what developer wishes for UI rich app development.
So my job is now starting to spin back around towards more development styles roles.
Currently I am in the process of learning about an internal Asp.Net app for managing invoicing.
A .net core app to manage changes to rate card prices.
And a small python app which runs 40+ sql queries and writes the results to a spreadsheet.
This is the jest time I’ve used python, and I have to say I really like it4
I've only used Cordova for cross platform mobile app development, I want to try Qt, has anyone used it before? Would you recommend it? Thanks.4
I was an intern in high school, and a hired Software Advisor right when I turned 18. Now, I'm 19, in College, and looking for a job with no idea where to look.. Any advice? I really like Python back end and iOS/Android app development..
Hey devRant team, I saw the new designs and they are awesome. Actually I just started learning Android App Development and I was curious what stack do you guys use for devRant Android App. And while we are on this can you guys share the stack you use for IOS app and Web app. Thank you and by the way you've done a really good job with android app.6
Decided to start learning Swift as I became a Mac user back when I was in college (and I'm a Linux fan so win win?).
I went to college for Web design and development but think I should definitely be putting a big focus into app and game development/programming.
I also have a backlog of programming languages I'd like to at least familiarize myself with...
So back to Swift...anyone use it regularly here for app and/or game development?4
Just wanted to say how much I am enjoying learning to code.
I'm using team treehouse to learn. Android app development.
Going well so far. The instructors really explain it well.
Let me know if you guys want a referral code.1
Hi, I need some advice about android app development. I am a front end web developer and I want to get into android development. I have created a simple restaurant app using phonegap and knockoutjs but I didn't like the performance. Can you recommend how should I get into android development? Nativescript and ionic also lack performance as far as I have researched. Any help is appreciated.11
Am really confused between app development and web development. Where should I proceed guys?
Am CS student right now. Mostly learn C# (WPF, xamarin) in mean time.
But recently am getting love on Angular 4. For that I learn typescript (I know HTML and CSS basics btw) and willing to start learning it in upcoming vacations.
But thoughts coming in my mind is am doing good to get into web development? If yes what should I do with the knowledge of C# then? 😣😣. Or should I stick with app development and get dipper knowledge in it?
Really confusing stuff man. Am really need some good assistance on this topic!1
Thinking about upgrading a laptop, 4gb ram, i3, and an hdd. Should I upgrade the ram to 8b or the HDD to an SD? Mostly use it to web browsing, and occasional app development.6
Struggling to write my Engineering Thesis code. Not because I'm afraid of tech, but because I have no idea what it should do.
I'm testing mobile apps performance, but getting the right idea is pain in the ass. :(
Never been too creative, but always have been over ambitious and lazy.
So the deadline is coming slowly, I have specified my 'tests' (authorization, API connection, heavy calculations, graphics, database handling) and still don't know what my app should do.
And ideas or suggestions what else is to test?
Please Flutter or React Native
For app development?
1. More App-Development
2. Get more Clients
3. Learn something like Python or Kotlin
4. Bake a cake 🔥4
Alright, apparently, I can't Google.
I am wondering, is it possible, to develop an android app without android studio? And probably without Java?
My idea was to make a web app using mean stack and then just fit it into browser widget and voila.
I also don't believe that all of the apps I'm using are made with android studio...
What should I check out for better understanding of the whole android app development thing?6
I am a QA automation engineer and asked development team to add id's on the Web app and provided them a list of id's, they named added all id's as testid instead of Id, now it is time to extend By class from selenium..
Is there a way to run a Java app with a specific version even if I have several installed?
For example: I have 8_151 for development, but on the client side they use _181. (I don't use it because it causes problem with JavaFX components). So I want to make my app to run specifically over _151 even if the client have another newer version installed.5
So I'm thinking of buying a used iPhone 5s for around $100. Obviously i don't intend to use it as daily driver but for a specific purpose and also try ios app development.
Is $100 for a used iPhone 5s fully working along with charger a good deal?1
I would like to know what kind of online service / software do you use to work on a project (web development) when you are a team of 3 or 4 devs.
I need something to let us do some brainstorming to find the idea of our future web app, then to prioritize what feature need to be develop first, by who, when, etc.
I found Taiga.io (an open source service and an alternative to Trello) recently, and it seems to be a good choice when we will be on development.. what do you think ? Do you have any dev tools to recommend ?3
I want to make my own Android app. I have completed Java basics. In Java basics I have completed encapsulation, abstraction, inheritance, polymorphism etc. I have basic knowledge of these all. I cannot switch myself to Android studio because I am not having a good laptop but after one month I will buy a good laptop. So in this one month of time what should I learn which will help me in my Android app development.3
Anyone here used Kivy before?
My brother is gonna try to learn Python soon, I'm will help. But I thought it would be cool if he could use this skill to make apps. Any thoughts?2
A couple of years into my study all we have done is creating websites with php. This isn't what I signed for when I chose the study app development.
The issue I have now is that I'm in my last year and am lacking to motivation to continue with php development when in all honesty I just want to create apps.
I bet several people have dealt with the same issue but what I wonder is what you did to get through that period.4
Maintaining referential transparency might find its use in the inner working of a process but I cannot find any practical usage for it around the basis of your standard app.
For instance: you make an axios request to your api, you wait for the response. Two reasonable ways of checking are to catch anything errors (axios throws on 404 and 500s) or checking if status is not 200/201/whatever. If its not then alert the user that there was an error fetching whatever they needed or however you go about error handling. This is a standard in application interfaces, to alert users of issues. Request functions cant be referentially transparent because we rely on them to make a binary decision.
Same ont eh api side when we're writing these controller actions and services. They need to fail or succeed and we need to return a 500 or 200/201. I guess the fact that a response is coming back despite its state makes it somewhat transparent but the type of response the usr can expect will never be transparent.
Point being, functional programming has its place in my programs but im finding many places where it just doesn't fit in/
I'm interested in developing a productivity app for windows, but I have no idea where to get started. Do you have any suggestions for frameworks/tutorials to get started with? I'd prefer to use C# instead of C++, but if necessary I'll do either.
Thanks for the suggestions
P.S. It'll also be the first project I actually use version control for. Fun stuff6
Hi guys. I wanna start a new personal project for web development. Actually i code in Rails for work and i want to try something different, Easy to learn but able ti manage any type of website and web-app. Any suggestion?6
This partnership gives Google advertisers access to Unity’s mobile gaming network through Universal App Campaigns (UAC). This means Unity mobile app developers will be able to monetize with Google’s ads without any additional required development work.
To date, the partnership has resulted in video completion rates of 87.3% compared to the average benchmark of 32.5% (Source: Moat Analytics Benchmarks: Q4 2017). Furthermore, Unity has consistently scored 97.8% for valid and viewable rates, well above in-app benchmarks of 54.7%, providing a brand-safe environment for advertisers while also creating value for developers and gamers alike.2
I really was planning on learning iOS Swift app development when the new MBP came out, but now they're saying it may be released in October. Is there anyway I can start iOS development on my PC?5
Finally finished my macOS+iOS project.
Mac app which play your YouTube playlist while displaying changeable image next to the player with the workout you are doing. It has features like:
-saving workout details in calendar
-download the currently playing video
-remove song from current playlist and add it to playlist with Old songs
-save the remaining songs of the playlist shuffled to new playlist to listen to them from your phone while you take a bath after the workout for example
-the app detects three playlists based on the description:
*”music” in description for Music playlist
*”newest old” in description for Old songs playlist
*”rest songs” in description for rest songs playlist(the songs you didn’t listened to from music playlist, this playlist is auto generated on exit if you want)
-the app can play any playlist or video from YouTube sent by the iOS app over tcp and add a song to your Music playlist if you liked it.
The iOS app features:
-gesture control for the main app over TCP
-chart for the weekly calorie burn retrieved from calendar.

Just finished a hackathon this past week trying to hone my skills in node. However, the amount of time I spent debugging stupid type errors was...quite miserable to say the least. Because of that, I’m looking for a new web library or framework XD. Anyone have some fun alternatives with languages that are preferably strongly typed?2
When you are in the last strech of development for a new Android app, and you learn that Firebase replaces GCM2
Can someone recommend a good, free and easy to use service (web or windows app) for mobile apps prototype, mockups, etc. I want to create a visually rich and possibly clickable prototype for a mobile app idea before development.13

Gotta question about the job market,
I'm having a very tough time getting a job, still jobless from when I quit my job awhile back, anyway all the jobs I look up that contain the words software/android/app/java developer seem to include web development skills.
Something of which I don't know much of, I wouldn't mind learning sure but for things like android development I can use Java just fine to create apps, yet the moment I start reading they want developers that know react.
Is this a normal thing? I can get to learning new languages and all but it'd be sad if my skills in Java for both software and app development are never used once I join that company.
Forgot to add this is for New Zealand job market, not sure it's normal for other countries.3
I'm trying to go into iOS app development. Should I bother with Objective-C or is Swift the new way to go?5
I'm studying in college and just got introduced to Android development and firebase. It's wonderful. And I'm wondering for an app like devRant would it be a good idea to store the data in firebase... If not, what else options are there? Also, I'm planning to work on a similar project for my sophomore year.
Any ideas guys?2
Happens alot with Android devs 😝😝.
It does't matters how much you try to make your code run, the moment you sleep some code fairy comes to do some code magic.1
Uh so I can’t really find a clear answer to this but, can you program iOS apps with C# or not because I’m only seeing shit on fuckin Swift. More like swiftly beating myself to death with a wooden bat6
I am so close to done on my first solo app I've worked on for 6 months that could beat down similar corporate apps. Friends and family are proud, but don't really know what I mean. Just happy.
Started working on a project in january, knew nothing of the platform i was working on. Now after 4 months and multiple holidays and vacations(festivals and stuff). I have a "running" prototype of the app. BUT its not configured properly, i know this much. But i have lost track of the changes and files, basically i don't know how it all is working.
Question about Game Development:
I want to create myself a boardgame (Dog aka Tock aka Tuck). It should run on a Android Tablet.
What suggestions do you have?
- Is there some good framework for a native App?
- Should I create a WebApp, if that's the thing nowadays?19
Is Amplify of AWS really no backend Development? Anyone of you has an app in production with this? I want to know, for example, when you need to add SMS validations or 3rd part payments or webhooks, are those features supported?2
I just got to college and can do web dev fairly well (Mern stack mostly). But tbh I am now more interested in being an app developer. Should I try to learn React Native/Flutter or Kotlin/Swift3
How long should apps take to build? Im being told 2 hrs min, 1 wk max...did I miss something or am I just slow?
Oh, btw, ANY app goes. Not just web/mobile....😒8
Which CROSS PLATFORM Desktop App Development tool/framework do you use?
I've been using ElectronJS but I'm tired of it but I can't find any better alternative. If you know any better alternative please let me know. and please, do write why you think its better than ElectronJS
Group project where you had to make an application of some kind. Wouldn’t have been all that bad if you didn’t have to maticulously log every minute spent and reach a ridiculous time minimum regardless of progress on the app. Good job promoting slow development.
Will someone post a list of everything I should learn and in order.
I want to be a software engineer. I'm learning android app development now. And I'm a complete beginner. I also want to be a full stack developer. Also what's the difference between software engineer and developer? Which languages should I learn?6
Indian tech support just one-uped itself. They're now a web / app development agency.
Why would I even need that? I'm a goddamn webdev myself! They even said they knew that.
For fuck's sake.
Once again spent a day MacGyvering together all the missing pieces of the app for tomorrows presentation deadline. This time the code base is 95% good code and 5% of dirty hacks which are essential for the rest to function properly.
One day I'll enough time to finish a development cycle on time. One day...
Imma Jr. Web developer (Ruby on Rails) working here. I've got time at home, so what should i learn?

So this software student is wondering if the masters on this app know about a good project during summer that I could collaborate virtually and get some experience?
I am interested in app development, web dev, really like SQL too, but any other subject would do.

No internships where i live :/4
I was wondering how I can go about with the development of an Android app.
I've made a few small apps, but I want to make something a little more complex.
I've made the use case diagrams, high-fidelity prototypes and the database schema is almost ready.
I'm just stuck with how to model the app. Which architecture to use? How to actually implement a complex project?9
So after 8 months of stopping the development of a web app, the client decided to start pushing it for usage.
8 months ago I was almost begging him to do some testing, so I could gather some feedback and fix any issues. That, of course, never happened.
Yesterday just before leaving work I received a meeting invitation and an e-mail. Apparently the app wasn't at the "expected level given its development time". I also got another e-mail with change requests.
Someone will be getting some virtual middle fingers during the meeting...
Anybody using PhoneGap?
I know that it isn't perfect, but for simple, rapid development it gets the job done.
Basically because (for me) takes out all the fuss of building the app.
Now that it is been discontinued I cannot feel but disappointed.2
Okay so I have a choice for my final project based around the development of PWAs.
Choice is: Recipe App Vs a Student Mentoring app (social network type thing).
I feel as though a recipe app has been built a thousand times, even though it's just a vehicle for me to learn about PWAs.
Which one should I go with?7
Anybody used nativescript for mobile app development? Is it worth looking into or are there better alternatives for that?1
What are the minimum PC specs you feel comfortable with for development? Of course app development and anything medium sized and up with an IDE needs decent specs, but I'm wondering about the lower end of the spectrum. Scripting things and such.2
Is there money to be made in android app development via ad revenue? I'm learning more Java for a different purpose related to a job and think it'd be a fun side project. Maybe utility apps, but probably games.9

Should I go for freecodecamp or app academy open or some other free resource to learn full stack web development. Freecodecamp's explanations are starting to get over my head. App academy open seems great except they teach ruby on rails before teaching MERN stack and there are only three reviews on the internet I could find12
When you start working on android app development, but you always forgot to put a "(" at the start and ")" at the end of an if statement or for statement, because you got used working on Swift Programming. Haha1

Can a mobile app dev here explain to me why updating an app causes its shortcut to be removed from my home screen on Android? Its always the same app, so I assume it's due to poor development?8
So I recently started my internship with a company that has created their own CMS for web development. They are currently looking into developing a hybid app.
I'm lucky enough to be tasked with the development of it since learning their CMS in combination with the frameworks they use would take a couple of months according to them.
Now they have their eyes set on the Cordova framework with Sencha Touch, but I'm also aware of Xamarin
Anyone on devrant who has used both and what is your opinion of the two?

Hey guys, I am very keen to learn iOS Development. I looked up online and got most of what I needed for the development. But the main problem is, I don't have a Mac. And my machine isn't souped up for running a Hackintosh. So is there anyway I can do iOS development on Windows?
Also, someone told me I should go for Hybrid App Dev. I looked it up and tried it out, but had only one question. How do I integrate a Data Source in them?
Thanks in advance.5

Is it a good idea to code my Android app keeping sqlite in mind before actually migrating to a noSQL version?
The primary reason for doing this is not having to deal with APIs or server side coding and also faster testing and prototype development.
Any ideas or suggestions?7
Every time I am tired of writing default values for optional values (values that can be nil but HAVE to have some default value unless they break the app / program I just tell it to be any valid value instead of nil,and if it’s nil the app / program crashes the fuck up.
I test it by feeding it ONLY valid data.
Irresponsible, I know, but none of my projects have passed testing phases and all of them never really finished development.1
Sorry for asking this question again but I got no replies or releated replies.
Is app academy open good for learning fullstack web development for a newbie or somewhat new to web development. There are barely any reviews on the internet about it. I did kinda ask about them in one of my previous rants but was recommended fullstackopen by @100110111

Also thanks @100110111 fullstackopen is pretty good5

I am a beginner in iOS development. Currently, I am on my week 3rd of training in the iOS development and I am glad to admit that it has been a smooth ride to understand iOS concept. I know a bit about Massive View Controllers and how they are much of a headache for this community. So, one fine day I was surfing the web and reading blogs to understand app architectural patterns in iOS. So I just stumbled on this (https://simform.com/mvc-mvp-mvvm-io...). It recommends using MVVM when your team relies on test driven development.
Just wanted to know if anyone can explain to me how MVVM can be used for test-driven development?2
This startup contracted me to develop an app for them. They gave me the mockups and said they need it in 7 weeks. Two apps in 7 weeks, no problemo. Almost done with the first app then they came saying they are changing everything. How can you decide to change your entire app and concept mid development? You haven’t even tested the market to know whether your idea holds.3

This business is in demand at this time and mobile application is the reason. Any advice or suggestions related to online food delivery mobile app development would be great for me.
Currently, I am collecting some information through this resource https://iglobsyn.com/on-demand-food...
are there any style guides for app development out there? As a backend developer I do not have much experience on how to position UI elements so that it looks harmonic and natural. So what I am looking for is basically some sort of a "best practices book", with design/UI problems and possible solutions to it. Can you guys recommend anything?4
