A Changing of the Guard!

Posted: February 28, 2013 in appMobi

Hello World,

I have been using the appMobi XDK for over a year now. I found it to be one of the best tools for testing and deploying mobile apps using HTML, CSS, Javascript, and PhoneGap. So you may guess that I was a little concerned when I learned the news. What news? Well, here is a blog post from Intel:

Intel extends HTML5 capabilities

Submitted by jhwolf (Intel) on Fri, 02/22/2013 – 12:12

Developers continue to tell Intel they are looking to HTML5 to help improve time to market and reduce cost for developing and deploying cross-platform apps. At the same time, app developers want to maximize reach to customers and put their apps into multiple stores. Intel is dedicated to delivering software development tools and services that can assist these developers. I am pleased to let you know that Intel recently acquired the developer tools and build system from appMobi. While we’ve changed the names of the tools, the same capabilities will be there for you. You can check these tools out and get started writing your own cross platform apps now by visiting http://software.intel.com/html5 and registering to access the tools. Developers already using the appMobi tools will be able to access their work and files as well. If you weren’t already using appMobi development tools, I invite you to try them out and see if they fit your HTML5 app development needs. You will find no usage or licensing fees for using the tools.

We are also excited to bring many of the engineers who created these tools to Intel. These talented tool engineers complement Intel’s existing HTML5 capabilities and accelerate innovation and delivery of HTML5 tools for cross platform app developers.

I hope you will visit http://software.intel.com/html5 soon to check out the tools and return often to learn about the latest HTML5 developments from Intel.

So what do I think about this? We will see … we will see.

Cheers!

Hello World,

Yes, I know it’s an old joke but the picture shown below reminded me of that jest. Take a look ..

How long does it take to make a mobile app?

Kinvey Backend as a Service

Pretty neat huh? So how does that measure up to your experience as a developer?

And as for the question, “How many Coders does it take to screw in a light bulb?” There have been many answers to that question but I like – “None, that’s a hardware problem”

Until next time (my review for the Tiggzi App Builder is coming up next) …

Keep On Codin’

Cheers!
