I had a brainstorm while working on the Android app, and came up with a great cosmetic upgrade.  I'll be revisiting the iPhone app when I'm done with the other two!

My first enhancement was identified within minutes of getting the iPhone version into the hands of my cubs (8-10 year olds) and their parents! Here I talk about some of the issues with upgrading a versioned database and another thing to watch out for...

My users are 8-10 year old kids and their parents.  Within minutes of getting the app into their hands, I have an enhancement that I need to do, in order for all of them to be able to use it.

In order to really get an in-depth understanding of mobile development, I've set myself a task of creating an app for a community I serve as a volunteer, on iPhone, Windows Phone and Android.

Many vendors and users today present their applications as being cloud-ready or cloud-aware, when what they are really saying is that you can install it on a cloud platform or virtual machine.  To really make an application cloud-enabled, you need to facilitate "on-demand, convenient, rapid provisioning that can be released with minimal management overhead or service provider involvement".  A virtual appliance, created using IBM ICCT is how you truly make your application cloud-enabled!

With IBM PureSystems, you get to deploy virtual appliances, individually or as groups, that are fully and expertly integrated, and that solve specific complex problems.

FusionWare can help you create a virtual appliance to truly cloud enable your applications.  For more information or to contact us, visit our website at http://www.fwic.net/Products/IBMPureFlexSystem.aspx

The last few years have been interesting to say the least.  A number of developments that we have been anticipating have begun to take hold of the market, and a shakeup has resulted.  Actually, we had expected some of these things sooner, and others were different than we had expected, but that's the nature of the beast.

Here I outline a broad-brush of where we see ourselves going.

I've been working with Windows Azure since it first released, and I just recently completed my IBM Certified Solution Architect -- Cloud Computing Infrastructure V1 exam.  I've found that the map of cloud computing is a bit like an old mariner's map.  There's great opportunity for those willing to be pioneers, but there are also regions where the map says "Here there be dragons!"  For cloud computing, I think the map should read "Here there be cats!"
