Happy New Year 2015!

Happy New Year to all readers of Technological Ramblings, and be sure to have a great 2015! In 2 minutes.

In two more minutes as of the time of writing this, Spain, France, Germany, and most of Europe will enter 2015. As for me, I still have 7 hours to go!

I am currently using a Dell Venue 8 3830 as my main tablet, and it is a fairly decent tablet, running stock Android 4.4.2, BUT there are 3 bugs that are really irritating me.

Just Do It

This year, 2014, I have published my first (and second, and third) project to the world.

Prior to this, I had released a few small games, but those were effectively demos. Yes, the two full projects I published in 2014 were also small: a stopwatch/countdown/timer, and an audio recorder. The difference is that these are real products. They need to work properly, and delight actual users. Their purpose is achieved if they improve people's workflow. I think we succeeded (and the reviews prove it), but that is a different point.

Developing a product like that is an amazing experience, and it is entirely feasible for anyone to do. Kerinova is small right now, but I am very proud of the work I am doing as part of it. That takes a lot, because I am constantly critiquing everything I do. I am working this month on two bigger software projects, and I am excitingly anticipating their release.

It is an amazing experience, and I encourage everyone and anyone who has an idea for an app or game to just do it. Learn how to program and start developing your dream app or game. It is possible, and while it may seem intimidating at first, I promise you it is very possible, and fun! There are many resources available online to learn how to code, and of course, I am available to help.

One of the aspects of the Software Industry that I love, is that it is a great equalizer. The tools and resources to begin creating, are available online for free! Anyone can create apps, from ages 6-124!

If you have any extra time this coming year, start developing your dream app or game. Just do it. Make it your New Year's Resolution for 2015!

Go forth and conquer, and such.
