By submitting, actually re-submitting, revised version of PopToo iOS App, the fXceed’s latest project is officially commenced. For about last 6 months, I have focused on iOS development. Realizing, how vast this world of application development is, even for just iOS sector, more and more I feel the need to learn broader and deeper.
What I realized is, especially for providing a social service, the web application programming is much important, if not more, as the client app development, even though the users may never even care about the web side. Well, being completely ignored by the users is the criteria for being a great web application, I assume. Since, PopToo iOS App is finished its preparation, PopToo Web Application resides in Google App Engine will need much more attention to be optimal, secure and thus become more invisible to the users.
It has been a great challenge for me to develop for two different platforms, iOS and Google App Engine using Python. But after all, it was more about architecture than framework. Finding bugs in processing logic was much harder than learning about semantics of programming languages. Through this experience, I developed stronger respect to the software architects, and aspiration to be become like them.
The bigger challenge is coming. I must get out of this comfort zone and actually engage with the users, the customers, the ones who support PopToo project.
