Memorial weekend just passed (Thanks To All Our Veterans!!) and it was a nice relaxing three day weekend. So what did I do? Go to the beach? See a movie? Go to a parade? Have a cookout? None of the above. I was writing code!
I decided to challenge myself by creating a mobile app from scratch on Memorial day. So I spent the Saturday and Sunday trying to generate an idea for a mobile app that I could do within an 8 hour period. I realized that I have several young nieces and nephews that are starting to use their parent’s mobile devices. So why not create an app that would appeal to them? That’s exactly what I did. I promised myself that I would start Monday morning and stop before Monday at midnight. Here is what I was able to create in a little less than 8 hours (I took some time to participate in a meeting and eat that day):
A cute little game I created from scratch in under 8 hours using the Corona SDK.
I hope to complete the app and publish it to the app store sometime in the near future. After all, my nieces and nephews won’t stay young forever. In the meantime I may push the source code onto my Github account. At the very least I may post some of the more interesting snippets of code on this blog.
Until then …
