Technology, programming, ideas and innovation are my preferred subjects. Working professionally on programming gives me plenty of new topics to write about, still my brain keeps popping out ideas in the most unexpected places.

New server

Thu, 20 Oct 2011 15:37:17 +0000

I’m moving all my sites to a new server. So long GoDaddy and very old server hardware!

Smarter Browser Cache

Mon, 11 Apr 2011 13:30:55 +0000

Designers, Developers, System Administrators and companies spend a lot of time trying to optimize their networks and content delivery systems to achieve optimal performance with the minimum resources possible. At first, there was a simple browser/proxy cache schema, then the “If-Modified-Since” and ETags HTTP headers where introduced. Nowadays CDNs seem to blooming and all the […]

Adding In-App-Purchase Support: Avoid AppId Troubles

Tue, 17 Aug 2010 23:35:31 +0000

So, I’ve decided to add In-App-Purchase support for one of my apps. I’ve researched about the subject a few times but it always seemed quite a bit of code for a lazy-driven project until I found a quite nice tutorial that at the bottom included a utility library that packaged everything you need to do […]

libanim: animated textures and images for iPhone/iOS

Thu, 12 Aug 2010 02:33:19 +0000

I recently started a new project called libanim (home page) which aims at providing support for animated file formats on the iOS and perhaps Android at a later stage. The problem doesn’t seem to be limited to any one platform, support for animated file formats is usually limited to gif files but on some places (e.g. […]

Disabling multitasking on iOS 4 apps

Tue, 27 Jul 2010 17:58:38 +0000

If you’re using the iOS 4 SDK then by default your app will be assumed to support multitasking even though you actually need to add support for it and you might not have done that (e.g. updating an old application). While multitasking seems nice it isn’t always the best scenario for your app, specially when […]

The little evilness of @property

Wed, 21 Apr 2010 19:26:49 +0000

One of the special enhancements Objective C adds to basic C/C++ is the ability to declare and use properties with a simple and straightforward usage. To new comers or even veteran programmers used to properties in C# or Java this is a very nice concept that saves a lot of time while keeping the code […]

And Apple does it again – Opera Mini iPhone App Approved

Tue, 13 Apr 2010 03:42:20 +0000

Apple just approved the Opera Mini iPhone app, which should be available on iTunes during the next 24 hours. This is excellent news specially taking into account the recent events. In you’ve missed the demo go check it now. Edit: Some users pointed it out to me something I couldn’t believe but it’s true. The […]

Unity3D, MonoTouch and Flash CS5 to be banned from iPhone/iPad’s Ecosystem

Fri, 09 Apr 2010 17:25:43 +0000

Up until now a few solutions existed if you wanted to avoid C/Objective C to code for the iPhone and specially to achieve some code portability/compatibility with other platforms. Examples of those solutions are Unity3D, Flash CS5, MonoTouch, HaXe and other static-compiters or trans-compilers like XMLVM. As reported by several sources (e.g. this Engadget article) […]

Is Web Storage All We Need?

Wed, 24 Mar 2010 23:10:56 +0000

Due to a particular idea of mine I found myself in need of something I don’t believe possible today – to easily share data between desktop and web applications using the browser alone. This raised several technical, privacy and culture questions on my mind, as well as a couple suggestions of course. Many are already […]

Microsoft open sources .NET Micro Framework

Tue, 17 Nov 2009 00:05:35 +0000

Microsoft has 3 .Net flavors, the complete stack, the .Net Compact Framework and the .Net Micro Framework for extremely resource-constrained devices. The later is being open sourced under the Apache 2.0 license. A copy of the full annoucemente can be read at Port 25. Unlike the other flavors of .Net frameworks the .Net Micro framework […]
