There are many arguments to be had regarding the kind and quality of knowledge you obtain by attending a university rather than searching online for tutorials. There is also the huge difference between Programming and Software Engineering (you can learn to program on your own, however, you cannot learn to engineer Software by yourself). But in this article, I would like to focus more on the less obvious parts of going through a full-time Degree (Bachelor, MSc, and the likes of them)Continue reading
Regardless of the traction that microservices architectures have, there are technical areas and essential matters that you should take into consideration before developing in a microservices structure.
The last year has been one hell of a year for me.
After 8 years of full time iOS development and 11 years of developing for Apple devices, I decided to move on to something new, that I have been planning for longer that I was willing to admit.Continue reading
I have to admit that I love React & React Native. I began using React in 2014, and React Native in 2016. I loved RN not because of its cross-platform mechanics, but for its pragmatic approach when designing user interfaces and its ability to componentize a screen. A component can have its own state, and if the… Continue reading
There are some among us who just can’t sit tight, and feel the urge to create something on their own. Most of the time this ‘something’ will end up never seeing the light of day. It has happened to me, I assume that this is the case for everyone else. This happens mostly because of… Continue reading
A few years ago, a client of mine had an idea about an application that would leverage augmented reality features to play videos on top of images that would be featured into pages of his Greek news magazine.
I love coding. I don’t care about the language I use, or the technology. I care about solving difficult problems, about creating something from nothing. I grew up believing that software is philosophy, knowledge, way of thinking. I still do. However, I have to admit that based on the things I have seen since I started working in… Continue reading
I have been trying to find a good navigation library for a project I have undertaken, and I have been looking into numerous frameworks the last few days. Although I have been able to find some decent frameworks, I haven’t still found the best library for navigating i inside a React Native application. So I decided to… Continue reading
It’s been a while since my last blog post. Those were some very busy months. One of the highlight of those months, was work done for Atcom NEXT, a yearly event where we get to show the future of technology put some of our ideas into practice, and create high-profile proof of concepts. There were a… Continue reading
Diving deeper into Swift, I am examining different ways of improving my architecture, and making the best decisions when creating new applications. For me, architecture and expressiveness in the code is much more important that a complicated algorithm that boosts performance over 100%. One thing I am called to do very often, is set up… Continue reading
