• Bindroid - A Binding Framework for Android

    I'll admit it -- I was spoiled by my days on the Silverlight team, playing with XAML, .NET, and databinding.  When I started building Android versions of my apps, I went in with the expectation of a similarly modern, powerful UI framework, but quickly found myself frustrated by the complexity of creating UI that tracks values as they change in my application.

  • How Barbershop Harmony Has Helped My Career in Tech

    I'm a software engineer.  I'm also completely addicted to an incredible hobby: barbershop.  I've been reflecting lately on the impact of this thing I've grown to be so passionate about over a very short amount of time on the development of my career, and I've realized it's been pivotal for me.  It's kept me grounded, built my network, given me a reason to build cool things, helped me find the confidence and courage to do things I never thought I'd do, and been a huge amount of fun in the process.  I wanted to share a bit about why I'm so excited about it, and why it (or any other hobby) might hold some similar value for other aspiring engineers.
  • Parse now supports .NET and JavaScript Windows 8 Development

    Hi all!  I know it's been a while since I last blogged, but I've been hard at work.  Since January, I've been excitedly working at a startup called Parse, working hard to make building rich, connected mobile apps easy.  Parse provides a ready-made backend for your mobile app, and it allows you to go from zero to app in no time.  I use it for my own apps (across all platforms), and we've got lots of folks building amazing things on our platform.  I'm extremely proud of the work we do, and I think everyone that is doing mobile app development should give it a close look and see if it meets their needs.

  • Pitch Perfect for iOS now available

    Wow, it's been a very long time since I've posted, but so much has happened in the last year.  I joined an incredible startup called Parse, and am working on things I've never been more excited about.

  • Pitch Perfect for Android now available

    Once again, I’m very excited to announce that I’ve finished porting my digital pitch pipe application, “Pitch Perfect” from its original Windows Phone 7 incarnation to Android, and it’s now available for free (ad-based) from the Android marketplace!  I hope you’ll give it a try.  I got some great feedback on Tag Master, and I hope to continue to get great feedback on Pitch Perfect.  I hope you’ll give it a try, and tell me what you like and what you don’t!  I know I’m not the best in the world when it comes to app aesthetics, but I hope it’s pleasant enough to use and functional.  It’s been a nice little personal side project for me, and hearing about people using these apps is a blast!
