Happy New Year to everyone. I know it’s late and I have not blogged a single post since August 2017. This is my first post of this year, so Happy New Year 2018!
I own a website named CodersB.com where I showcase the apps I create at home. CodersB doesn’t have a logo, so thought of designing one on my own with my half baked skills. 🙂
I’m not good at drawing or designing and only know a few basic graphic techniques. I like Bees, Bears and Hexagons, so tried those design but none of them came out well. I will try a few more designs with Bears until I give up and ask for some experts help. Until then, Instead of having the drafts locked on my computer, I decided to share it in my blog so the effort don’t go waste.
I’m an Application Architect who is in pursuit to become an Enterprise Architect. While looking for an opportunity to learn and grow in career, I came across the Open Group Enterprise Architecture certificate program (TOGAF). I was preparing for this exam on and off for several months until I decided to focus dedicatedly for the last few weeks. I finally attended the Togaf Part 1 exam and cleared it today.
This is foundation level and I need to prepare and pass one more exam to be Togaf certified.
I would like to share the list of my preparation materials so it will be helpful for someone who stumble up on my website.
Finish is a simple reminder app which has very minimal but required features. There are tons of To-do and reminder apps in the market, but this one focuses on a simple todo list with lovely interface. We wanted it to be easy to set a reminder date and time. Other apps would take multiple scrolls and swipes to choose a future month and year. This one requires only a few taps to choose any month of any year.
We have referred many user interface and worked on several designs to reach this point. Here’s a screenshot of app.
I hope someone from one corner of the world will like this app 🙂
I am also working on a new website for this. It is codersb.com.
I decided to create a reminder app for IOS. This is not a unique idea, but I just wanted to create an app and learn a language required for it.
It is so regretful that I haven’t learnt anything new for the past few years. I don’t want to be stagnated with the knowledge that will be legacy soon. So I chose to upgrade my skills to match the phone, tablet and desktop ecosystem.
There are several ways to learn a new language, I like to start developing an app and learn it on the go. Learning cocoa is more tougher than I thought, I hope I’ll grab things quick.
Why Reminder app?
I don’t know, I was talking to my friend and he wants me to remind him about something and when I opened the iOS 7 reminder app, I felt like the native app isn’t that good. Functionally, it does a great job, but I think the usability isn’t good enough.
So, I decided to start creating a reminder app with a new UX design. There are tons of reminder apps on the App Store which is so cool, but still I wanted to create a yet another app that is available in the market 🙂
I will post my progress frequently! Happy learning and coding!
