Loved that service. Completely forgot about it until you mentioned it.

Timehop – http://timehop.com/jobs - NYC

iOS Engineer - We're looking for an awesome iOS engineer who knows the ins, outs, and annoyances of the iOS platform. We're a venture backed startup (Spark + OATV) that is making reminiscing online fun by taking your digital exhaust (ditial photos, tweets, checkins, etc) and showing you the most interesting things you've done on this day in history.

In an age where we're creating more digital data than ever before, we're trying to take the 90% of stuff that isn't real time and searching for the important signals and making it useful again.

Our stack is mostly Rails with PG (and decommissioning Mongo). As of late, we're adding more and more Go into our stack. As part of the iOS team, you'd be contributing to the iOS efforts on all fronts: making major decisions about how the codebase progresses (libraries, code conventions, etc), major part in hiring, etc. Since we're a small startup, you'd also have a huge amount of input into the product.

We're also looking for junior iOS folks as well!

We've raised $4mm thus far and have got a bunch still in the bank :)

Shoot me and email, I'd love to hear from you! benny@timehop.com (tech cofounder)

Shouldn't the user have their email address in their commit messages? That's how I've found their email address – clone the repo and do a `git log`

You don't have to log your commits with a real address... I use a user+github at gmail address, but others don't. It would be nice to see people list at least a twitter account and maybe a homepage. For really high profile people/projects, I can see the option to be more private about contacts outside github... but for the most part, don't get it.

This looks awesome - a Parse.com you can deploy yourself!

Also check this one out then, similar but with no mobile client SDK (other than a javascript): http://deployd.com

A bunch of UX feedback/issues:

- after signing in/up, there is no link on any page that actually links you to your portfolio.

- The welcome page is a waste of space right now. It only has a link to give you feedback, while providing the user no useful information.

- If you're making me sign in with github, the projects section shouldn't be empty. It should pull from my github

- Under Theme, I understand it's probably more work than it's worth right now to preview the themes for a weekend project - but the link out to bootswatch should at least go to the preview so I know what I'm choosing: http://bootswatch.com/#gallery

Thanks for your feedback!

- That has been added - Yep, indeed. I'll think about what's best in this place. - That's what I initially planned and that's going to come for sure :-D - Great idea, thanks!

This is super exciting for anyone who has wanted to hack on hardware but always got hung up on stuff like getting wifi shields, hooking batteries, etc. before even getting to coding. I'm getting one of the beta units (I've known one of the founders for a while) and am psyched to start hacking on it.

As a hardware noob, the promise of the arduino has been that you can build anything(!) with it - which is also the downside. I've always felt like the setup to get pieces of hardware battery powered and communicating with each other was much higher of a hurdle than it should have been and mostly lost interest before getting to build what I actually wanted. Plus, an arduino board + wifi shield + whatever else makes it super bulky.

This feels like an arduino with smart defaults - like a Rails for hardware.

Where's Jimmy Wales' face when you need it?

So true.

When you think about all the setup, SysAdmin stuff, backups, scaling, etc you'll avoid, $200 a month ($2.4k) is pretty cheap to be able to just switch a scalable db on at a moments notice.

$200 is cheap but I'm hoping they eventually put out an option closer to the $40/mo price point just so I can play around with Postgre (I'm currently a MS SQLServer guy that wants to start branching out). I don't want to spin up a new AWS and waste time with configuration and other things and don't want to worry about hosing a currently running instance just to have a new sandbox to play in. I'd pay a reasonable amount to have something akin to a cheap "test" instance in exchange for giving up things like an SLA or dedicated support.

Their shared DB hosting is free or 5MB and $15/mo for 20GB. It's not going to have all fancy features of the dedicated (fork, follow, etc) but it is Postgres at least.

If you want to just play around with it, why not download and install it? No charge for that.....

Thanks gnok!

Indeed, an RSS feed would be cool. In the queue ;)

The reverse is solved by Instapaper or ReadItLater. This is the reverse of those apps :)
