Update to Champions League Final

Monday morning I woke up to an update on my Windows Phone. Not an unusual circumstance, but the update this morning was my own Champions League Final app. Cool I thought, but where is the email telling me it passed? Gone? Or have they stopped sending them? So the hunt started… Checked my Hotmail junk: … Continue reading

Make sure stuff is working

And we’re off! I was quite proud of being able to incorporate my Raspberry Pi into my app, even if it was only to ping my service and populate the database. I thought it was cool, but it also gave me sleepless nights being the weakest link as the power button is in the living … Continue reading

I’m back… What I’ve been up to the past year.

I am back again. Stay tuned for weekly updates (Fridays) from my windows phone development and general web dev. The blogging got stuck during Summer ’12, but there has been some development on porting stuff. January 2013: First I had a stab at BB10, after the hype, but it took so long to get the … Continue reading

Sick placeholder blog

It had to happen. A whole week of sickness, so nothing going on here, but dreaming of projects, which I suppose we all need now and again. So in a funny way it has been a productive week even though a single line of code hasn’t been written. I did have an interesting mail today … Continue reading

I really need to do something else

Here I am another Friday and time for my Friday ritual of bloging about my app dev week. It’s been a totally monitoring week with the occasional quick fix. It’s been a tough week otherwise around the house. So focus has been on relaxing a bit and waiting for the first statistics to trickle through … Continue reading

Reusing app ideas and data sources

Don’t you just hate it when you had this great idea and then out of your brain never to be seen again? Well that’s where I am now. Had a great idea yesterday for a blogpost, but now it’s gone. So I apologise for the meaningless waffle today and hope you get the main idea … Continue reading

Failure is the way to success from a developer

Back again so soon. Still a bit stunned today after the failed certification yesterday. I was not expecting that and can’t think at the moment what to do. I have previously ignored the error report as I was developing other stuff and submitted those fixes with a comment, and magically it passed. This time, however … Continue reading

Hey app, stop using my data plan!

Here we are again another Friday and the development train is rolling again on a new project. So I managed to wrap up my latest app: UEFA EURO 2012, which got submitted through AppHub a couple of nights ago after using too much time playing around with graphics and stuff that I never ended up … Continue reading

Control, control, control (of data of course…)

So the Champions League Final is over now and it was a disastrous success if I do say so myself. Luckily I was sitting with my nose deep in Visual Studio almost expecting something to go wrong and rightly enough as soon as the clocked turned 20:45 and game started the feed flowed through my … Continue reading

The beauty of being in control of your app data

Here we are a week after the frustrations of bugfixing and recertifying the “Champions League Final” app to the AppHub are Water under the bridge. It’s almost like a sort of a final for me. My app will only be relevant for one day and even though I have tested and tested with live match … Continue reading
