  Why Building a Mobile App is Hard


Kent Nguyen has a great article about how building iOS apps takes a lot of work. And, here at Parse, we agree. Making a well-designed app is not a trivial task. Many non-developers hugely underestimate the amount of sweat and tears that goes into a single app. The big component that is overlooked and that Kent stresses is the server component. An app is not an island. Users expect their apps to richly interact with the internet. This means you need to worry about developing code on servers, com...

  Game Development Essentials #1 - Don’t use inheritance for your game objects


I recently released my first game, X Fleet, available now in Android Market. It’s a fast paced space shooter / rpg riddled with awesomeness and you should get it now. The reason you should avoid hierarchies/inheritance is your objects will be far too varied and complicated in form to be accurately represented as such. More on this below.  The alternative is a component model. This is very basic. Instead of having everything inheriting (e.g. Object -> MovableObject -> AnimatedMov...

  UIWebView Secrets - Part1 - Memory Leaks on Xmlhttprequest


My first blog post on iphone subject reveal a big memory bug when using UIWebView component. This is the (only one) component to display some HTML content in an iphone interface. UIWebView object has a lot of differents issues and I’m going to highlight the biggest of them. Actually, all XMLHttpRequests used in javascript code are fully leaking!!!

Question: What is an HTC File?Did you find an HTC file on your computer and wonder what program should open it? Maybe someone emailed you an HTC file but you're not sure how to use it.

  Is coding going to die?


There is always a voice recent years saying that coding will gradually die, software development is more like an assembly job. i.e, programmer will be more and more like IT engineers. They seldom build something from scratch, instead they achieve the goal by assemble different components. There are people who have similar views around me. From the book "Clean code" written by Robert C Martin-- "One might argue that a book about code is somehow behind the times—that code is no longer the ...

  Do NOT use boolean variable as function parameters


We follow a lot coding styles and code standards when we do programming, but one may often be forgotten, it is that we often use the boolean parameter as the function parameters, which would greatly reduce the readability of the code. Don't believe? Let's take a look at the following code. When you read the following code, what does this code mean? widget-> repaint (false); Do not repaint? Or what does this mean? After looking at the document, we know that this parameter is immediate, ...
