So I was thinking of an idea for Black History month and decided to make a app. Considering that today is the third of February, it is a little too late to have something ready for the start of Black History month. Then I had another idea, I would document my entire process of building the app from start to finish.
The goal is to not only share my thought process on how I build applications, but to hopefully learn from others reading my progress. I love to program but I am not really an expert at it, so I welcome the challenge to improve my skills.
Now as I said earlier this app is for Black History month. I plan to finish it by January of next year (2013). I realize that is a lot of time, but I am in no rush and I want to make sure the app is stable and solid.
For this project, I plan to make an app for the Android, and for Windows mobile. I only own a droid phone and I have access to a blackberry phone. However I plan to tackle blackberry at a later date, and I have not interest at this point in making an Iphone app.
My development tools will be Eclipse and Visual Studio 2010. The languages I will be using is Java and C#. I plan to post an updated at least once a month explaining my progress. It is my intention to provide all my source code.
As state earlier the application will be a trivia for Black History and I plan to incorporate social media into the app.
I welcome all questions, comments, complaints, and critiques. It is my hope that this whole process will put me on the path to becoming a better programmer.
