Google used to publish Apps almost instantly, no quality review whatsoever, as result, the Google Play Store was full of garbage. Crappy Apps, malicious Apps and overall useless Apps were rampant. Several scandals and privacy breaches after, Google said, no more… “We will review the Apps and ensure some quality across the board”, (turns out that, although criticized, Apple was right, all the time).
It’s sometime confusing for new developers
(or rather new Watch iOS developers) to find exactly where to set the Watch
Icons. Well… it’s actually pretty simple.
It may be a bit unclear, because if you use a standard XCode template App, you may find two Assets.xcassets. The first would be under the WatchKit App and the second one under the Watch Kit Extension, usually where you insert your code logic.
I often found myself with a lack of motivation when it comes to working on a project. But all that changed after I showed GoPlantUML to the great people at Reddit. This post is about how an open-source project can spark a new passion for work and how I am enjoying every minute of it.
GoPlantUML is open-source software that I wrote as a training exercise. I stumbled by accident with the ast library in Golang, and I discovered that I could quickly parse Golang code. Immediately, I realized I could use it to create a diagram of my projects using PlantUML, and thus GoPlantUML was born.
Submissions for mobile apps for iOS are subject to approval by Apple’s App Review team, as outlined in the SDK agreement, for basic reliability testing and other analysis, before being published on the App Store.
Applications may still be distributed ad hoc if they are rejected, by the author manually submitting a request to Apple to license the application to individual iPhones, although Apple may withdraw the ability for authors to do this at a later date.
The terms Stack and Heap get thrown around a lot in the programming world. But what does it means? What is the difference between them and why should we care?
To start, I would like to make a clarification on a possible misconception. Heap is referred here as a memory allocation technique, not as a data structure. Furthermore, when we speak about Heap as opposed to Stack, we do not mean two types of memory, what we mean is two ways of allocating memory.
When your code compiles (or run if interpreted), the compiler needs to consider how to allocate your variable definitions in memory. To understand this process, let’s first examine the pros and cons of each type of allocation.
If you agree that nothing paints a better picture of your software project like a well maintained UML class diagram, then this post is for you.
I have been fascinated with Golang because of the versatility of the language. I wanted to take advantage of the Golang parser and a great software called PlantUML (http://plantuml.com/) to create a program that will translate my Golang code into a neat class diagram.
