I like this development. I went to GT for both bachelors and Masters but with BME and ECE, respectively. However, I am doing web development at a startup. I wonder how this OMS course would impact me and others in similar situations.

Wow! Very interesting stuff but every time I see something interesting, I have more questions than answers. For example, what happens to the fluid in your body? If it floats around, won't we die???

-----


Which fluids are you talking about specifically? I've very little knowledge of anatomy but I think most of the liquids in our body are in "closed-loop" pressurised systems, with nowhere for the fluid to "go" whilst being forced in to motion by our muscles.

I came from a electrical and computer engineering background and so I am more used to procedural programming. When I started with iOS development, I tried IB but then I cannot figure out the magic and decided to create my UI mostly from code. Then, I started doing more and more software and adding more code, and managing it becomes painful. Since this is a personal project, I do not want to spend too much time and want to follow Apple's way of doing things. Since then, I started using XIB file and adding them slowly. It is important to realize that it is NOT an all or nothing approach. You can mix and match XIB and code with what you are comfortable with.

Some comments say that using UI will eventually restrict you. That might be true and I can totally see that. However, at that time, it is a good idea to step back and look at the overall design and figure out if you over design something. I like functional apps that work with little effort. It does not mean that it have to look ugly but you can customize and beautify the UI within the constraints of Apple's framework. Yes, there will be limits but is it worth the extra complexity of rolling it out on your own?

I have not tried storyboard but I would like to try it out soon.

In general, my philosophy has changed to use good, solid, reliable frameworks and keep the design (UI) and features (code) simpler. You will be able to get 90% of what you really want with less work (coding and maintaining).

Can someone explain to me about the best advice he's given? The star trek enterprise and rearranging it and what does that mean?

-----


It's the "only geeks like Star-Trek" cliche. By making it less obvious that he's into Star-Trek, he's more likely to gain a girl.

-----


Thanks @Shank. So basically, he is saying be less geeky? Btw, not trolling because I like technology but haven't watched star trek series or even the first star wars.

How can I get more connected? I live in the suburb and it's quite difficult and the traffic through Atlanta is a pain...

Well, what I am doing right now, just trying out so can't say for sure how effective it is. I was working with a a freelancer who knows python and is more experienced than me so I say I'll pay for your time for pair programming, design review, etc...

What I would do is to code the way I would and then go over it with him via teamviewer or something and we chat over skype. For me, the difficult part is creating the right classes and refactoring, making unit tests and making code scale. I also have design questions. Perhaps I'll make a post when I have more feedback.

Great idea and looks cool but I typed in my address and I know a pretty big church next to my house was not on the list. If you want to look into it, it's called victory world church in norcross.

While we have a huge amount of information regarding churches across the US, only churches that actively manage their profiles are listed in the search results. We've found this results in more useful information for someone looking for a church and provides a better overall look-and-feel.

To join FaithStreet, churches can either claim a pre-made page or add their information Here's an example of what Victory's unclaimed page looks like: http://www.faithstreet.com/church/victory-world-church-norcr...
