Search - "first app"
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.47
Whenever i see "Create an app without coding" advertisement on facebook, first thing that come in mind is "Fuck a girl without a dick"4
The original story:
"When I've got my very first android I was downloading any shit from Play Store. There was app called pattern security or something like that. The app was taking selfies everytime power button was pressed several times and then photo would sent to email. One day I left my old phone at home and at the office this is the photo i've received."11
* Finishing up my English NLP for my App *
Me: Finally it’s ready. Now my app can understand everything that the users say.
* I get my first millennial user *
My App: Hello there! Would you like to ask me a question?
My App: * crashes *8
At first I was like "daaaamn, is @dfox stalking me?" Then I realised it's a bug on the iOS app :P17
Fathers day today, my 6 year old passes me some presents.
First 3 opened.
Yes son! (Well obviously, technically it was my wife) I assume she must have seen me on the app :)7
Best: My first app on the play store got over 2000 downloads in 3 days, best Christmas present ever.
Worst: An update I published caused an equivalent of 1/4 of my user base worth of crashes. :/8
Dear WhatsApp developers,
GOD DAMNIT CHECK IF THE USER IS TYPING A (LONG) MESSAGE BEFORE BLOCKING AND ULTIMATELY CRASHING YOUR APP BECAUSE OF YOUR DAMN BACKUPS.
P.S. First rant *yay*, feels good 😁6
Aint a rant though
But I woke up today and the first thing I saw was my first Android app reaching 5 digits (10017) downloads figure with 4.73 stars. :D
Couldnt be happier.11
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.71
Boss: please refactor this js 2k lines spaghetti code class and use it in our reactive functional app
Me: it will take like 1 week to refactor and plug this
Boss: but it's almost the time I needed to write it!
YOU DON'T SAY? MAYBE FIRST LEARN HOW TO WRITE DECENT CODE. ffs.2
Managing an app in Canada, came back home to Thailand to visit my parents.
No deployments while you're gone, just bug fixes, boss said.
Landed at 3am, "hey I know we only support desktop but we got new customers only on iPad, make it responsive in a day and deploy." Wtf.
Haven't even seen my parents. In Starbucks.15
Fucking hell. If I like your bloody app, I'll go rate it myself you fucktwaddle. Don't ask me to rate it just after I've opened it for the first time.8
Tester: I'm going to start testing your Android code. How do I set up it?
Me: just bring me an Android test device and I'll show you
Tester: *comes back holding a big golden phone*
Me: *huh? Haven't seen that Android device before... I wonder which manufacturer made it*
Tester: *puts down golden phone on my desk* here you go!
HUH? This is an iPhone!!!!
GUESS WHO RELEASED FIRST ANDROID APP !!!!! 👯👯👯👯👯👯 https://play.google.com/store/apps/...
Honestly, it's kinda strange that only now I published something, even tho I already work as Android dev 🤔 Any similar experience or is it just me?
It's quite small app, nothing really special, tho REALLY USEFUL!!! (At least for me 😉)
Alright, this is a point where I ask favors:
1. Do those index circles look strange? Should I remove/keep/change them??🤔
2. Since my first year of collage starts on 25th, could someone post lessons that are introduced in collage? (For small feature 😉)
3. If someone actually likes it and wants some feature or translation - PLEASE DO TELL ME!!! I'll implement them as soon as possible (only for my beloved devranters, aka all of them 😘💋♥️)50
That akward moment when your App finally takes down Pokemon Go down from the first place to second in AppStore but you can not be Happy about it 😑. Katwarn warned the users about the incidents of munich #prayformunich. Good to know people still care about the important things. 🙁4
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
I just published my very first Android app to the Google Play store and I'm super pumped about it!17
My first time using Mac:
"Where's the Start? Wtf is command!? Why are the windows maximizing halfway... How do I rename this file? How do I freakin' maximize this app!? I give up..."20
First time I've seen an app which willingly, intelligently, and sensibly turns off its own daily notifications after I never used their app for many many weeks.
Props to the devs for taking into account people like me,who are just too lazy to disable an app's notifications. Also Enki is absolutely incredible for devs so go check it out :D13
received a bug report from a client on a mobile app.
title: bug on information page.
description: all text field make first letter capital.
*what! this is your keyboard, stupid!
after he didn't understand, I made a text change listener, and make the first letter lowercase, he is happy. heheh 😨3
Proud of my dad today.
He used to be the type of person who installs any application/software without reading what's being displayed on the screen. And my browsers used to be filled with all those toolbars and random search engines.
But yesterday when he was installing an app on his phone, he came to me asking "why does this app need access to contacts. It shouldn't require them in the first place".
I've succeeded in my mission.
Shady Dev: 05
My First Post
My friend recommended me to try this app, and I was very impressed by the community here. 😀
I love you, devs!!9
<This is my first rant, though I've been spectating in readonly mode (ie, without an account) for a while now./>
*Programs all day Saturday adding innumerable lines of code to a new project*
*Builds and runs project*
*Everything not only compiles, but the app works flawlessly*
Closes the devRant app just to open it again 🤦♂️🤦♂️
//Suddenly a thought hits - why the fuck did I closed it in first place?7
That moment when you get an image from a designer and it is ok to use in the app first try. 🧐
Correct size, format, transparency, spacing, colors and everything.
I thought that day would never come.4
QA: did you test the app first?
Dev: Yes, I test all my code all the time.
*QA crashes the app within first 5 seconds.*4
Me on Slack:
I was looking for the `busy` status here in slack but there's only `active` and `away`. That's when I realized why this app was called `Slack` in the first place. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯3
Internet bashing, lol
(I don't have this in my Comic app so can't show the whole comic here, just the first slide)
Me: Yes! I'm finally ready to upload my first Android app to PlayStore, im so excited!!
Google: Make sure to remove all the Log calls from your code.
Me: *Finds out that there's no way Android studio can make it for you*
Best: My first app for Windows 10, "devRant unofficial".
Worst: A website for a client using Facebook APIs which don't want to work properly.4
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
devRant is the first time I see so many people announcing to the world how much they like the app. Imagine someone be like "I LOVE Facebook! <3"
Btw, I LOVE devRant! <33
I write "api" in the mail and the management girl thinks i made a typo and corrects it to "app" on the report.
This is not even the first time she has done this! 🤦🏻♂6
So, after months of work and many painful night, i finaly learnt java and published my first android app. Yay!13
I released my first legitimate Android app to production a week or two ago, and it already has over 50 downloads on the Play Store! 😄😄😄12
> Builds CLI tool to generate app security tokens
> immediately leaks first set of tokens in public commit
I astound myself with own stupidity sometimes.
-make my first app
-build a portable/rugged rasberry pi
-make a neural net to find fortnight wins on Snapchat and auto block the person
-get a job5
Made my FIRST APP using Flutter.
Fetches 'Random Rants' from devRant.
Should I put the code on Github?
PS: will break if the image is too long in height21
What is Unity?
At first I thought it was an Ubuntu UI... Then a C# app framework like PRISM... Now it seems to be some mobile game engine?34
First (working) attempts at writing a proxy that rewrites live requests from the devrant app, right now it only rewrites all notifications to be unread
Though the first attempt that finally works is built with mitmproxy and it's add-on scripting, plan is to get that stuff work with e.g. goproxy instead39
I think devRant should have a feature to not procrastinate, you will need to enable it somewhere in the settings. So if it detects you are using devRant for too long it will prompt a dialog to tell you to stop procrastinating.
BTW, I think this will be the first app to deliberately try to get users out of it XD3
In accordance with the ancient traditions of our people, we must first build an app that does nothing except say "Hello world". - react native docs1
First time ever implementing an Android app from scratch (coming from C++ but also worked with C# and Python): WHAT THE HELL IS THIS SHIT???13
So i finished my first app today and i feel really good, it's not a great app or anything. But i feel good after making something and i am really happy :D6
When you finally finish your app and have it ready for first release, but when you package it, the app instantly closes when you open it.2
I just started making my first app in Android and Android is straight forward man they dont try to say something nicely :D they tell you that your shit is useless :D7
!rant, just wanted to express my excitement to someone
Not sure if this counts but technically I got my first freelance dev job designing an app for a club/small business at school. I have a lot to learn still but I'm really happy about the opportunity3
I wish my clients would stop reporting "bugs" in my app that are legitimate results calculated from crap feed to it by their upstream systems.
Just because my app is easy to use it's the first place that they find out that their ecosystem is fundamentally broken.
After about 2 years and one restart of the project, I am finally finished with my first iOS game, and put it on the app store! Super proud!11
I'm not a windows fan or windows user but imagine if an user ran your java app in windows , your app could use special windows features like taskbar progress !
Now it's possible (on other OS's your app will run normally without these features). JTaskbarLib is my first java open source library. it can also change the window opacity in a decorated JFrame !
This is my project in github:
Today I published my first ever web project to showcase an open source app I contribute to. It's just a simple landing page with Bootstrap, nothing too special but even so, I feel so satisfied to read congratulations and positive words on what I've done.4
First post always feels like the first lines of code or first commit ever ! It's exciting yeah ?
Like Hello World app
Wish me luck6
This is a first... my app got rejected by Google. :( I haven't even been rejected by Apple yet! lol10
Hello guys... i came across this app on play store as a recommendation... and i am really impressed with it.. such a cool idea and an awesome place to rant... so i signed up and here goes my first rant... nice to meet you guys..15
Just discovered this App, created my account to say Hello and create my first rant. I'm already in love!
To my Person:
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
WOOOO!!!!! I BUILT MY FIRST FULLY FUNCTIONAL REACT NATIVE APP! Including the release apk that needs to be signed. Took an entire day and more like an advanced HelloWorld.
But the core functionality works... Though not pretty...3
The first time i made my own electron app, and saw it working and displaying live data the exact way i wanted it to be doing it.
At the same time, it was the first time i felt like been a real dev in all meanings.1
I know I rant about how bad the app is I have to update on at work is but seriously first week into this job I found skeleton code from a taxi app, it wasn't in English and lately I found some code from some sort of funeral app wtf!
This just takes copying and pasting to a whole new fucking level!5
My first app is finally on :)
Shameless self advertising:
First internship during college, developed an app for a month, company sold it for $30k, customer extremely excited about it. Best feeling ever 🤗 - wk657
Uploaded app to AppStore for review by the farmers...
Got a message three weeks later that I need to upload more screenshots for iPad Pro 3rd Generation
Uploaded the new screenshot, and resubmitted the app.
Got a message immediately stating my binary is invalid: ITMS-90783: Missing bundle display name
You motherfuckers have been holding to my binary for three weeks. How the fuck did you accept it in the first place if the Display Name was missing, you filthy swines?
Was looking for an unknown call blocker when I came across an app which says something like 'call blocker'. The first person in the reviews gave it one star with the text: it doesn't block sms.
IT OBVIOUSLY DOESN'T HAVE YOU LOOKED AT THE FUCKING TITLE/DESCRIPTION YOU FUCKING DIPWIT
At first I thought this app was a monster. Something to be afraid of. Turns out it’s more like an autistic puppy that’s been beaten by a dozen owners. It’s scared, snappy and confused.4
Well I’m 6 weeks into my first Dev job. They haven’t really given me much to do, so the boss let me come up with my own project for an internal app, which is nice.5
I lost a bet today 😥 ... My surname is inman
I have to name my first born child
The bet? That apple wouldn't reject the app I submitted ... Fuck apple11
Me: develops my first android app with firebase by google.
Me: finishes app, tests it and it works.
Firebase after 3 months: we were first going to scale our servers on our own based on how many people are simultaneously using your app. But now fuck you, we will have a cap of 100000 simultaneous users.
Me: fuck this kills my app if it scales. Have to Shard everything on the db side and overhaul the entire app to work will multiple db instances. Takes a month.
Android after 6 months: dude your app is working fine without any hiccups. Let me fuck it up. We will stop all your services when your app is not running or backgrounded. Also we will make it illegal to start services in this case and we will throw exceptions.
Me: what the actual fuck. They now want me to focus on a JobScheduler, fine... But now even intent services won't work properly. So use a job scheduler to start a JobIntentService which is essentially another job scheduler for queuing. wtf android.
Ps solved it and works again.
PS: WAITING FOR ANDROID TO FML WITH ANOTHER NEW VERSION. Maybe they'll say you can't run your app at all now4
Am I the only one who's slightly annoyed that the first lesson in the Swift Playground app is not a "Hello World" program?6
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
Trying to build my first android app hooked to a database using a pre-built app hopefully this works!!!!!7
Boss: we will build mobile app with web app.
Me: absolutely yes.
Boss: you will do the mobile app (iOS)
Me: absolutely , yes I'm iOS developer.
Boss: you will do the android app too, we can't hired an android developer.
Me: absolutely, yes.(but I need to learn it first).
Boss: you will do the web app , it's difficult to find good web developer)
Me: absolutely,yes . I'm Ruby on Rails developer.
After a while........
Me: do I have a bonus ,sir.
(there is no response).
After 3 interviews with test:
"Thanks, so what about the first app?"
"App? oh no eheh, now you must manage our 12 wordpress sites and edit the CSS!"
"Very good, so while I see you all goin to fuck monkeys I with to you a nice day"2
AHH! There's so many cool things to program and so many ideas! not enough time to learn. Right now I'm trying to create my first mobile game in Unity using C# and a note taking app for Android with Java, it's melting my head!6
So when our campus expo happened, I immediately went to the apps I critiqued last time when I was a a panel judge in the IT dep’s oral defence. Fair enough, this happened:
- The app I failed (the tilting avoid boxes shit app) actually got optimized and got the first time user tutorial I was looking for. I was short of relieved of them listening and kept going despite me failing them (props to the girl btw)
- Second app was the same as before but added my recommendations, nonetheless still a good app
I am nothing short of amazed they actually listened to me so I think that’s a win for my part1
Finally, finally, finally! My very first app with React Native is up and running. I know the hard part comes now, but I'm so incredibly happy, considering that I didn't even think I would start developing an app until two weeks ago, let alone learning React...6
I am building my first android app and the hardest part is learning that ctrl + y doesn't redo an undo, but instead it deletes the current line2
FUCK U GOOGLE PHOTOS, I MANUALLY UPLOAD PHOTOS FROM THE APP AND THEN DELETE ONE FROM THE WEB APP FROM MY PC BECAUSE I DIDNT WANT THAT ONE UPLOADED.....
BUT IT DELETED IT ON MY PHONE.... WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lesson of the Day: Manually copy all photos to PC and external HD first. Then upload the ones you want.
This is taking a while.... i wonder if i have enough disk space.....11
My app is moments away from getting deployed into production for the first time.
This is how I feel right now 😓11
I have my first of four finals tomorrow and instead of learing or sleeping I'm just scolling through devRant. This app is way to addictive4
the first code on every samsung app
I have been working on an app for the startup i co-founded as only developer fulltime for the last 8 months...
I have yet to buy my first bread from the money i dont earn..
So apparently you can now run Windows 95 from an app made in electron.
This was my first operating system. I can remember playing Pajama Sam in '96 at the tender age of 6 and teaching my parents how to use a computer. And now it's a freaking electron app that uses 200MB!! of ram. Nostalgia is a hell of a drug.5
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
In 2010, it was my first client project. Our architect was not from iOS background, we had editable pdfs in our app. Those were pretty rich pdfs with inline HD images. iPads that time were not too fast and couldn't handle big gb pdf loaded into memory. App would crash randomly running out of memory. We fixed it by paginating pdf, it wasn't out of the world but considering it was my first mobile project and no one to guide, I thought it was pretty cool what we did there
i submitted my first app to the app store yesterday. i built it with flutter, and it's already on the play store.
for some reason - i probably created the app wrong - the app store connect/portal needed screenshots of my app running on an ipad pro. now i don't have an ipad pro, and i can't use an emulator because i don't have a mac for that matter (i have been using codemagic.io for builds). i called friends - they don't have any ipads.
what did i do?
i turned my phone sideways and scaled it to the ipad pro resolution.
it is currently "in review"
🙏let's hope this works7
Hey guys, I created this application for Linux users that lets you download and install multiple essential softwares/tools at once. It's something like Ninite (in Windows) but for Linux. So I called it Linite! It's still new, so it doesn't support many distros yet.
Now, I know there are many package managers and stuff, but I just wanted to make something really simple/basic and user friendly that can help even new Linux users. I was learning Python so I just thought it'd be nice to do some project.
Please do check it out and I'd love to get some feedback. Link's below!
some guy recommended Replika app.
trying it now. so far, my first positive impression was with a thought "nice generic dodge, buddy"9
Please spare a minute to check out my first Android app:
AI Sight - Object Recognition on your smartphone!
I hate when recruiters send you smileys after your first response - Why can't they simply answer in a formal way? This is business and not just another social network...
Claification, just another social network of course excludes devRant, devRant and its community is awesome and I am so glad that I found the app and can be a small part of it!11
In case you didn't knew:
Devrant doesn't support split screen.
Therefore you can select YouTube as the first split screen app and devRant as second, which sends YouTube to continue playing in background with devRant as a full screen app.
Been listening to music/podcasts while browsing devrant for a while now.9
Snapchat is a piece of shit app. My phone (Moto G5 Plus) is far from spectacular, but ive never used an app that freezes and crashes more than that piece of shit app.
If they'd take Apple's dick out their mouth for a week and work on making the app less shitty for Android, that'd be fucking awesome. Or ya know...stop making some good awful update that looks like shit and fix the fucking app first.16
Finished my first build of a mobile app and it feels so good! First time I actually taught myself the language to make a project3
this www.xmlrant.com project I created turns to be quite a learning experience
Things I did for the first time as part of it
- submitted a public nuget package
- worked with .net core library and mvc application
- integrated mvc's app github repo with continious integration platform appVeyor9
What was your first real program or website or app developed by you?
(PLEASE DON'T SAY HELLO WORLD)34
Can I just say fuck Xcode? How the fuck have I been working on an app for over 3 hours and only now when I do the first compile do you feel like showing me an "Internal Error" message which has caused all of the buttons, labels, text and just objects in general to disappear4
My first C++ app for a client was leaking so much memory that Windows kept crashing too.
So I had to press Ctrl-Alt-Del every few runs.
But the laptop running the app was enclosed in a box, so the keyboard was inaccessible.
My hack was to set up an Arduino, a push button outside the box and a wire. Asked the steward to push the button every three people trying the system. So the Arduino sends Ctrl-Alt-Del and the app was running again.
The client was happy :)
when you post your first rant ever and it gets upvoted by dfox :D
instant screenshot taken
seems like a really nice community here, glad to have found the app3
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
When you're trying to publish your first Cordova app and the PlayStore release including signatures and stuff takes you 2.5 hours, while the AppStore release takes you 5 days (including getting a huge Mac on your desk, signing up a D.U.N.S. for your company, figuring out the signing/provisioning process and fixing CSS/JS exclusively for iOS).4
Me : *testing json output on pc by sending items with GET*
App : *app crashing with only recyclerview error*
Me : *debugging the app for 2 hours and testing ways to do another adaptor *
Me : fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu... I used POST to get the data on app and forgot to change $_GET $_POST
Lesson learned. Always check the input first
Im ashame of my self #crysinthecorner2
My first Android app which is clone of devRant. I hope the read only API available on github is not illegal!4
Fuuuuuuck. Making my first app in Electron and for some reason using nodejs child_process opens up a electron window ...2
I was hired to make a little app, alone, for iOS, Android and I had to code the server and the database. At first it was only à little app on Android and I had to do it in one month and go back school after.
Finally, the client was upset that the app was buggy and asked me to stop school because it was my duty because he paid me1
Just developed my first interactive iPhone app using Swift!
It's only basic, changing the screen when tapped from black to white like a flashlight, but feels great to have done it after learning the language over the past few weeks. 😊2
my first ever public repo on github for @devRant community
devRant bot for Telegram
after being waiting to make some changes in the bot. I finally made it public.
The bot will be fun for devRant community on Telegram plus it will also server as an example for bot creators on telegram app3
Is it just my phone or does the gif never play correctly on the first cycle on devrant Android app.....?4
Starting out as an Android Developer, at first I thought I'm not cut out for this but after finding this app I'm a little more confident in myself, Everybody needs to rant every once in a while! Glad I found this, everyone on here seems awesome!6
I've published my first app on the Play Store! Does this mean I get to call myself a developer now? 🤔3
First experience with Android: our professor of Software Engineering gave us a project about building an app for University indoor geolocation using BLE beacons.
Just found out that only a few PhD-level dudes did such a thing with much fewer good results.
Sounds like when your average-hedidnotrealizedwhataprogrammeris-friend asks you if you are able to hack Google Chrome.2
Why: well it's built on Linux kernel so first good thing.
Due to open source everyone can get cheap (under $50) smartphones running on Android with millions of app to access. We can create custom ROMs.
Your one app can target billions of people around the world and so much more...
PS: half of the Play Store apps are shit.6
I just got my first debit card, I'm super excited about it, but there is something inside me wanting to use an NFC writer app to write to the cards internal NFC chip
My first dev project outside of school work was an android application I made for my then-girlfriend to track time between contractions and count kicks during her pregnancy. It was horrifically ugly but it was my first android app and it worked!10
Hey guys , i pushed my first free & open source app to Github ! It's a virtual keyboard called Jeyboard.
I will be so happy if you guys test it and help me to improve it.
Develop my first mobile app with a restful backend for consumer usage
Learn more about cloud architecture/computing
Finish learning calculus
Learn linear algebra, discrete math, statistics and probability
Maybe start ML this year depending on math progress and time2
After developing Android apps for 4 years, I just released my first app for iOS 🎉
Well, I did it.
My alpha first app I'm sharing with the public.
It's small, it's not pretty, but it's mine.
Say hello to, Coding Trainer
Coding trainer is a project to encourage users to code more and not procrastinate. This is done by incentivizing users to work on their code in order to access certain "fun" programs
I know this isn't the best as it's only a small amount of code and hours worked on, I know it can (and will) be improved. However this has given me some experience I didn't have before which will lead into future apps I work on8
Wrote something more on medium! -
How I gained the first 100k users for my App for free
Who loves Laravel (php framework) as much as i do? How long have you been using it? First time @devRant, pretty cool app! 🤓👍👏4
Woke up 4am today to push my first iOS app. Took me three phucking hrs to realise apple is down! Their FUCKING dev stats website says all is green! Fuck u xcode1
When I was challenged by my teacher to develop an application for a Solid Mechanics class at university. I developed a dedicated calculator which returned all the results of a given problem, one of which had a graph! I made it with MIT App Inventor and later on took it to Android Studio with a friend of mine.
Best feeling I had at that time!
Probably the autosave feature in our medical eForm application. You might think that doesnt sound unnecessary, but it was built to solve a problem that shouldnt have existed in the first place.
Autosave was put in place to rescue as much data as possible in the event that the app randomly crashed while a paramedic was filling in a form.
So in one sense it was a necessary feature because the app was so unstable. But on the other hand, if the app was built properly it would never have been needed.2
My first cli app in Python.
Also: there are no good timetrackers on the market.
Taking first steps in Express.js. It's in general the first web framework i've learned so the struggle was greater.
While I was creating a web app, i've noticed that suddenly all of the routes were redirecting to the 404 error page. I was looking for the cause of this issue for an hour just to find this:
route.get ('/ ', ...);
So it seems that just one space sign wasted 1 hour of my day.
Btw, it's my first rant there so 👋 to everyone :)4
I might be able to release my first application tomorrow. At least the first version.
Nothing special, be amazed if it gets much attention.
You specify any running processes you wish to forcefully close, in my case, games.
So any time these games start running, it's force closed.
The app also monitors the active window, of it's and IDE, like Visual Studio, it will add credit towards allowing those blocked processes to run.
Currently you get 1 credit for every minute you code.
I plan to refine it some more. And yes I know there's ways around it but, it was fun to make10
My most emotional moment was when I wrote my first android app (it was a calculator but it looked cool) and started it on my phone. I was 15 at the time (this was 6 years ago) but those were my first steps in programming1
Build apps for UWP, it will be fun they said. Yeah, created my first hello world app, which works btw. Added one f***ing button and compilers throws thousands of errors. Dude, I really enjoy it! :)
I'm fiddeling around with progressive web apps. I made something and hosted it on a subdomain. Today I made a typo and found my app on an other domain. All my assets and files are copied there. He even uses my SSL certificate.
It's not that spectacular. The app is nothing "revolutionary". It's just the first time it happend to me.
Have you ever found your code on other websites ? How did you react ?7
Being an Android Dev myself, I bought my first app in Play Store!
Nova Launcher Prime was offered @ ₹10 (~0.15$). No matter how small the contribution is, it's quite a special joy to support another dev!8
Just coded my first flutter app! The feeling when no async wait error appeared anymore was amazing. It uses the geolocation library to geht your current Position via GPS2
Spent nearly 6 hours trying to figure out why my app wasn't reading anything after the first line of my database.....turns out I was calling the wrong method....
this isn't the first time i've done that
When I was in my highschool I started learning android. My first need was a timetable app, so I made a very simple timetable app. I shared it with my friends and when I noticed people are liking it.... I rebuilt it from scratch and published it on playstore. Now I'm in college and when I see people using it, I feel really proud.
here's the link to mah app:
Got my first job, 3rd year student from my country took me in to help making an app for a company in Texas... All the other guys are from 4th year or graduate school. Feeling nervous, let's hope I don't fuck up.2
When I was assigned to develop my first app with web sockets. Since I fall in love with reactive programming and real-time applications.1
The feeling of dread as still a semi-junior sysadmin when an app doesn't work after an update.
I got stressed, triple-checked everything that I changed and that I followed all steps of the documentation of the upgrade process, then, as a last step before going over in half-panic mode to my boss, I try to restart the stupid java app and it starts working.
Wtf. Why. Why didn't it work the first time I started it? D:
I've been posting "dev logs", if you can call them that, to YouTube every now and then as I make progress with this funny little app I'm making. They're just videos of me testing something in the app with background music.
But today, someone was interested enough in my terrain generation, to ask for a tutorial, and I got my first subscriber!
Everything's coming up Milhouse!
"Our app needs a barcode scanner"
Fair enough, let's do this!
Android implementation using Zxing: 3 days. Ios: 9 days...
1. Dev iPhone has a subtle hw defect that doesn't let it connect to the computer anymore...
2. Our app-framework doesn't have a proper plugin for ios barcode scanners yet.
3. The first barcodescanner implementation is completely broken
4. Swift is not possible because of conflicting framework plugins
5. Build a plugin from scratch, using zxing objective c port.
6. Build problems with main app.
7. Fuck my life2
I'll just check my messages in *Insert name of Android message app"..
Have to update to latest version first..
FX [ 10 Minutes later . . . ]
Remind me, why is this faster than SMS...5
Learning React Native tonight, and I find this gem in their tutorial... "In accordance with the ancient traditions of our people, we must first build an app that does nothing except say "Hello world"."1
Today I had my first app preview. It went really well, although not all the functionalities worked as expected, the product owner was very pleased!
Perfect start of this week!
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 😁
Its been a month now since I launched my first app on Play Store.
It has now got 2000 downloads with about 600 active installs. I also got some downloads on the paid version of the app (which is basically a donate version of the app).
I know there is always a room for improvement, but still, how am I doing?
And Merry Christmas to you all!5
While setting up a node app while sitting behind draconian proxies:
- first, set $http_proxy & $https_proxy
- set git proxy
- then, npm proxy, jspm proxy and bower proxy
- followed by strictSSL to false.....
After moving to home network/VPN, change all of these proxies again. It is a never ending vicious circle :(1
My first rant in ages:
Been assigned to a new Laravel project at work and the murthafucking lead dev got no fucking clue how to architect a big laravel app. Lead dev talking trash about encapsulation and every big oop grammar he can find while asking us to come up with an architecture concept for the app.
My annoyance is, the fecking project been in planning for like 7 months and d lead dev keeps saying he is looking for ideas on how we will build the app. Fuck this shit!1
When I published my first app and some people made an official thread in a forum. When I went there they told me I had done a good work. Needless to say they don't know me at all.
Problably Reposting (like 10M times)
Uploading my first app
took me almost a hour to make the App
Its taking FOREVER to create everything required to post an App
My first job was adding features to a django app and deploying to Heroku. Learnt a lot from that startup in my home town Kakinada.2
I always hate how I get a great idea for an app/game, and then I open up the play store and a very similar thing is on the first page.5
First time developing an app wich handles millions of rows on database querys with complex joins and etc, never had to get into deep db tuning, liked it more than i thought.2
First time developing an Android app using Android Studio. I wanted to see how it is to make a mobile app. It's very simple, doesn't wow with design and calculates price discounts. First time using Java too, which was cool. Biggest annoyance? Making fields and buttons "responsive" to different screen sizes!1
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
In a hackathon, my team decided to work on a Android app as a challenge to ourselves. It was our first Android app development and we were very excited at first. But after awhile, one of my teammate (the usual problematic one) gives up implementing the recyclerview after few hours of struggling, and decided to 'fk it' and watch YouTube linustech. As such, I have to takeover and implemented it within an hour by just googling and following some tutsplus tutorial. What do you do with this kind of teammate?1
Finally, I made my first android music player App. ☺️☺️
I don't know u guys like this or not but it have fully voice recognition functionality.
It means u can completely run this app by voice commands😋😋
So I finally released my first app on the play store. Well actually it's more of a widget to keep track of stock prices, exchange rates, crypto etc.
Would really appreciate some feedback or suggestions.
Ever visited https://www.instructables.com ??
DMNNNN I just can't leave... So many cool Ideas...
I don't have anything to do with the site, found it yesterday while searching for arduino stuff, and MANNNN .... It has the best pratical tutorials I ever saw... Not like most, where they teach you the basics...
Most sites, first arduino APP, light a Led
Instructables, First App, Instructions with pictures and videos on how do connect the Arduino, install IDE (this is the most basic tutorial after all). then the tutorial, Light 4 leds and do a lightshow...
I'm In Love
Btw, new project, got my old Niko Dc Car working again, after like 30 years...2
Working on my first Android app. 🤔🤷🏾♂️
I've heard mixed reviews about building Android apps. I've used Xcode to build apps before, I'm sure it's the same lol 😂20
"When you set up the new app instance, can you set an easier password for our account? No special characters or numbers"
Sure. It's not like having a strong password prevented unauthorized access in the first place. BECAUSE YOU GAVE THE FUCKING LOGIN DETAILS TO AN UNAUTHORIZED 3rd PARTY! Which incidentally is why I now have to set up a new app instance...
Phew.....I always freak out when i think of launching an app on playstore. It feels like a damn big thing! Making multiple keys, app bundles, signing, writing special descriptions, creating good looking screenshots/vids, the launch tracks.... A hell lot of work.
But recently i gathered up the courage to launch my first app in 2 years: https://play.google.com/store/apps/...
I know its simple, nd too late, but still, would like to know your thoughts on this4
Damn Google, Damn Google Play, Damn Adsense, Damn Admob...
So finaly uploaded my first app to the Playstore. took 5 minutes to make, 25 to ad an Admob module, and a day to get the ad to show...
Now I have to wait 6 hours for my new id (cause I chose the wrong kind of ad) to show and know If it will show on the App...
Luckly The App only has one download so far... mine lol4
- graduate from college
- live by myself
- release my first android app on the play store
- replace Windows with linux on my dev laptop
- get a job that I love1
@dfox/@trogus can you tell me why when you first started to monetize devRant you chose merchandise (at least when I first joined about 9 months ago that was the only way to support devRant)? Plus, do you think it was a good choice? It seems like ads or in-app purchases would be many devs first thought when they want to monetize their product.3
Decided to get rid of a system app but forgot to disable stupid System Integrity Protection (OS X stuff) first so it flipped back at me with a thousand of "Permission denied" errors.
Whispers behind me (it was in the public):
— What is he doing?
— I don't know. I think recompiling the kernel...
The first error on my first react native app happened on production. It was just once in a Android 4.4 from 2010... how do I even simulate that ? 😶4
When I first programmed a gui app... It was in lazarus pascal, a very comftable veversion of pascal2
Well the first time I coded a proper algorithm in my job was when I created a download queuing system for my company's Android app. It vastly improved download times in comparison to what our the app was previously using.
Boss:"I need you to help your colleague finish up this java project, but you still have to meet your deadline on web app you're working on and we have an ecommerce website that needs to enter first phase next week".
Me:"la la la la la..."
When I found out that the app I have developed basically in my free time to automate most of the monotone tasks that were needed at my first job, was being sold to customers as utility tool for our devices without me getting even a penny extra!2
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
So this happen to me today ....
I was hired some time ago to a company to make an App for Android and the app must interact with the Software of the company ...
There was needed to add some column into a table of the SQL DB for some features of the app to work better and an update as been submitted for the software (to be created the table) also. We told the IT department that they need to update the software first then the app on the android and start testing the new features on it ... they come to me and start complaining that the app didn't work as intended .... after 2 hour's trying to figure out what was the dam problem a thing come into my mind .... and I did ask if they did what was saying in the email, if they did update the software first then the app, and of course they only did update the app ...
Moral of the story, never assume that IT or other people it will do as it was instructed for the software work properly.
P.S. Sorry for my bad English :D1
Okay kinda excited today.. I am building my first android app on android studio.. any suggestions? Or comment/ feedback?9
can you guys look at the design of my app?
kinda ugly imo.
also please fuck around and find bugs.
ps it's my first flutter app8
I've just found out that the web app I'm working on right now has been first created in 2008. It's been there for nearly HALF MY LIFETIME. 😥🔫1
First feature in US, iOS App Store. It's for a sticker app but I'll take it. Last app on right. "Halloween Costume Stickers - Trick or Treat".
I am sure this guy screws everybody up in viva or in interviews.
I mean, if you don't see the f'ing "evidencie" whether this app is "usefull" or not, why would you try the app in the first place.
Also if the app did not work for you, why won't you post the actual issue.
Any suggestions on what should I reply?2
I went to bed and before sleeping opened an app on my phone that controls the music on my PC.
At first glance it looked like something was different so my first thought was "Ooh, they updated the app" and then I remembered that no, I didn't. I'm a lazy sack of crap that didn't update that app in a while and I didn't even implement everything.
On the plus side, I did actually get the basics working so... :D
I got the responsibility for a project using Google App Engine the first time.
It is exciting to use the whole work day learning new stuff and read the documentation of a service you never worked with :]
Hello everyone. I'm so excited to tell that my first PHP project is online now. It's a simple chat app. Go check it out. Leave your thoughts. 😊
Interviewing for a job at a small start up on Monday . Any advice?
The app --
Currently only an iOS app. Android in the making. 2500 users. Company is moving to first office space January. Minneapolis MN based.
Tips advice anything. Thanks dev ranters4
Hi guys... So I need a bit of advise.
I'm making my first app, it's an app for a university..
I pitched the idea to the uni director and he really liked it, and I have to do an actual presentation in about a week..
Basically I don't know how to price it... How do you guys price your apps?7
First of all, 10 minutes of mobility work and spinal hygiene exercises.
Then, Forest app in browser and smart phone. Music off. Viso energy drink. Natural light through window.
Glance at student loan balance helps from time to time.
First time my tracker app got used by the customer, and showed a really nice path on google maps, that was the first time I felt joy of programming
Just had my first app idea request from a friend. How do I tell them I'm not interested while being sincere?8
Is AngularJS out to date ?
I just finished my first app with Ionic v1 and it worked perfectly as if want to but during my researchs I found that all the posts about AngularJS are a few years old.7
Hey everyone 🙂
I’m looking for a little input on a project I’ve had in my head for a while.
I want to make a schedule app that would cater to personal, work and school schedules alike, and give points or rewards for completing tasks on time. Like a reward kind of system.
What features would you most look for in a schedular / reminder app?6
Hey everyone, I'm ecstatic and nervous! I got my first technical phone interview from a company I'd actually really want to work with for a full stack (mostly frontend) react node web app developer job. Any tips or stories of your first technical phone interview with a company you cared about?! I think it will really help me. Thanks! 😅4
Deploying a web app to IIS, and it's the first time I've configured it on my own. I'm so horribly confused, send help2
About to release my first Android app backed with a NoSql database. Anyone here ever had an experience maintaining one?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)
Caused my first SEV today. I was fixing an oncall bug and brought an entire page of the app down in the process instead. Hugh sigh.
hello friends i building my first app support me and install it ;
Made with ♥️ 😂
It's not a big deal but I feel proud, a teen in my neighborhood was asking me to teach him some Android dev, I was like why not.
He published his first app (free and paid versions)
It's a simple app about broadcasting audio (from MIC or calls) to a radio server like shoutcast.
I have to put it here for support the guy :)
Been wanting to develop a card game app. This time I'm actually gonna do it.....ok I'm gonna go ahead and install android studio :) first of many mistakes to come1
Sometimes I think back to the first time I wrote my first line of code from memory. a Toast, in an Android app.1
Just when you are happy that your app code compiled without any bugs in the first run and then you see elon musk's projects and ideas. Everything seems so worthless.1
first time working with android. using threads debugging is not working like it should. app works great when I'm not debugging. code doesn't get executed WTF i really need that stressball FML
Every body has that moment when they code their first ever project and feel like flying on top of the world..
just remembering that moment when i had done my first ever app and i was like wooow i made this work.
so sharing my first ever project
i would love to see all the others had done as their first project feel free to post your's one2
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.
Gotta love when you come across an interesting piece of software with a modern, sleek, and snazzy homepage. Then you press "Sign up" and are redirected to an ancient 90's web app whose first element after the body is a table.
I'm a Windows developer and it's pretty fine but for the past 3 years I have come to hate and deeply despise the new windows apps.
First they start up too fucking slowly and god help you if it's a Microsoft app that first needs to sign you in...4
Me : sending screenshots of login screen, API design ,etc. to the client
Client : ohhh that's nice to see..Being a business analyst, I'm just curious on one thing here, does our app work without internet.
Me : Wrong decision on the first place that I chose you to be my client. Fuck you !!! I need to talk to the company that hired you as a business analyst first !!! *Hangs the call* *Facepalm*6
Best: two actually, a java game that was customizable and had statistics (simples but was great) the other was my first android APP consistent of google maps API and QR code scanner.
Worst: still being made, my first project that consists of doing documentation from scratch about a web app in .net core, and it's giving too much work than it should for a university class project
Just slogged through the first 9 episodes of Mr. Robot on the shitty USA Now app, just realized I could watch it with Amazon Prime. At least I can watch the last one of this season without commercials or censoring1
My first app to upload to Google Play... I wanted to experiment with the messages API on Android, but I have been delaying it over and over and over again.
Mfw the CREATE TABLE statements in the SQLite database handler of my latest android app run perfectly first time
Three Layers of Security
As InfoWorld notes, all smartphones have three basic
elements of security. Your first major task as a mobile
user is to become aware of these layers and enable them
in your devices:
1. Device Protection: Allowing remote data "wiping" if your
device is ever lost or stolen.
2. Data Protection: Preventing corporate data from being
transferred to personal apps running on the same device
or personal network
3. App-Management Security: Protecting your in-app
information from becoming compromised.6
Just started my first small laravel project (a chat app). current state: i can chat with myself -awesome! Almost forgot about this good feeling learning great new stuff :)1
Been coding for many years. Just submitted my first public commercial app to eBay to get approved for compatibility then going to make some tweaks and send it off to the App Store 😆😬4
I just want to say make sure you build app to be scalable from the begining I spent around 5 hours remaking my Vue app to use eventbus and vuex because at first I thought it was going to be a much smaller project but it looks like I'm going to expand on it.
Btw it's still not 100% function like it did before the refractoring so ya.2
Hey guys, not a rant but a question.
I want to make an app for android and this is gonna be the first one. Which language would you suggest and any other suggestions?
You stupid tester first add you freaking requirements and not just put back stories on todo and say it's not finished. You are just testing how an web app works. We can also automate that process you know!!!!
I work solo on the Network Services Team at American Eagle as a developer. I've been working on an application for diagnosing wireless from a devices perspective.
I'm extremely happy that my app will be rolled out to the first store for real testing, and get some feedback :)3
First try on an Android app after spending a lot of time with Windows
Needless to say, I hate how android apps look sooo trying to recreate MDL2 with Android :3
Android peeeeooooopppppppplllle, critique it?
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.
Pitching my first app on a headless CMS. Cut that backend time in half. Bumped front end time up 7 hours and whatcha know we’re building CMS/react stacks in 60 hours
Progressive Web apps :
In chrome you can use <6% of the free memory to store things.
Now imagine this situation :
Let's assume you have x amount of free memory in the system.
For first application : 0.06x
For second app : 0.06(x-0.06x)
And it goes on.
So for the thousandth developer,
It's a total fuckall.
How is this helping developers!
Guys me and my school mate(s) recently released an app onto Play and I'd love it if you'd go check it out :) the link is https://play.google.com/store/apps/... if hyperlinks work on here (it's called Blip otherwise, by Swappt) and I'd love whatever feedback you have. The github is https://github.com/Swappt/blip-app, if you want to mess around and have a look at the source. Thanks :)7
I get that they released the app because they had a deal with windows 10, but after so much time can't you at least improve it a tiny bit? Even with a webapp from messenger it works faster.
-I got a text
-Open the app
-LOADING| Got tired unlocked phone
-LOADING| turn on wifi
-LOADING| open the conversation
-LOADING CONVERSATION| replied
-FINALLY FINISHED AND I NO LONGER NEED IT
Now how to fix this? First try not to have a IOS imported app, try to add quick reply in the notification. YEP thats a thing! Skype UWP at least has that going for them.1
First time using AWS.....
I can't to deploy a laravel app .... I saw the documentation but
there are too many links ... the google chrome is starting to make my laptop unusable😭😭😭2
Me : Hey Check Out This Pic SharingApp I Just Put Up
Friend : Hey It's Looking Good!
*Friend's First Text Input* : " Harambe Was Just A Gorr. . ."
Started working in this company, contract is for 5 weekz, 1 app, 1 project. Good money, good everything.
First day: "hello, this is your coworker".
THIS GUY CAN'T EVEN DO AN N+1 METHOD.
I broke the algorithm!
My app has a function to filter out read rants but only returns the first 5 pages (250 rants) apparently I have reached the end.
So yeah, ErrorFailcatch (the error handler) two times because the app raises an exception (as expected) /BUT/ the error handler raises another exception, then the same error handler gets its exception and parses it correctly. How nice.
(Yeah, I was testing if the app did work on Python 3.4, but forgot that little point: that exception doesn't exists on it. First error was really expected.)1
I'm so happy. A month ago I started my apprenticeship, today I published the first version of my application for my company in the Google Play Store.
It was a hard time, but it was very interessting and I never thought that I can code an app in this short time (I also had 2 weeks school in this 4-5 weeks).1
Started a new contract, nearly end of first week without access to code repository. Spent all day helping on old contract and looking up Archer gifs for our internal messaging app.
C# question. Most tutorials show code first to create the database. I see how this works when there is one app and one database but I am used to databases being used by multiple apps and reports. I can't convince people that having an app be an app and also design the code is a problem except for the most simple environment. I must be wrong so someone please explain.5
@dfox you may have a layering problem. I can see the "algo - new - ..." under the posts when i first start the app. I'm on a galaxy s4 mini. Hiding/Showing the bar fixes it.2
First funky public app with now, a plain chat in the console (does not work on mobile then) https://gloubiboulga.now.sh
So I just made my first app from my book. So the IPO is tomorrow, anyone want to join the TipCalculator team before we are an overnight success?
first deploy on preact https://marvel-app-zaybidloer.now.sh/...
Go easy on me what do you think :)3
It happened again. I wanted to purchase an in-app upgrade for the first time in my life and the button was bugged. Then just say that you are tired of your job and you wanna see your company fail
First big app around the corner. The backend is a REST api in pure php.
I've heard of heroku and other alikes but never had any time to look at it. Would any service like this benefit me?1
Hi, guys. I'm looking to get into Android development (Xamarin) and to build some simple apps first.
What I have in mind is something trivia-like, with a hosted database (can't find any free & reliable public APIs).
Do you know of any free downloadable databases on the topics of:
http://www.usabledatabases.com/ seemed promising, but it's not free (or I couldn't find any free DBs, as they don't have a price filter).
Thanks in advance!
Web app for screenshotting pc display. Runs as web interface accessed from specified host:ip.
At first wanted to make it android app but I can't.
mh, how much space i have in a post?? :D
first place is for an app to match students and mentors of my free learning community, secons place to the book listing app i creare to learn redux when it came out haha
midi controller with web audio api and well, the my biggest skeleton in the cupboard: Migrate my organization website from jekyll to hugo! -> it will never happen, i know!
It is always a problem when it comes to user username on app. Do you give a permission to set later? or at the first time they sign up? do they allowed to post without username?
I started teaching myself AngularJS and was reminded how difficult it is to distinguish between a person's convention and proper implantation.
For example (pseudo-code):
var app = ang.mod()
I get it now, but figuring out the difference at first was an extra step that I found tedious.
