Developing an app – how difficult is it to learn app development (in Xamarin)?

I’ve been been developing and coding since I was 16 years old, and today I’m 27. I have a bachelor degree in software development and have spent most of my times doing websites in ASP.NET MVC.

I’ve never really worked with applications outside the web, which means I’ve always been very much used to the stateless way the Internet works.

But recently I was pushed into app development, which has been a very interesting experience – and thats why I made this blog post: To shed some light on the question: how difficult is it really to learn to code apps?

Don’t get fooled into the short-term cryptocurrency price explosion

Bitcoin. Etherium. Ripple.

Recently the price of all cryptocurrencies has exploded in price, and every media site is working the type. This is the new way to get rich – quick!

As of writing this, I just screenshotted this from Coinmarketcap:

By reading this, it says that the total market cap of all cryptocurrencies are 137.137.994.554 USD. That’s 137 BILLION DOLLARS.

Review and experiences with Joylent – a Soylent copy

A couple of years back, the company Soylent started with a blog post.

Rob Rhinehart posted that he had mixed his own cocktail of stuff, by which he meant everything the body needed (including vitamins, proteins, fats, carbohydrates and whatever is required). Instead of making food, he could store this as a type of powder and eat it.

Review of Amazon Machine learning – first experience with machine learning

 

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Software Engineering from the best technical university in Denmark. I have a Master’s Degree in Business.

I see myself as quite a technical person. My job is to make sure that the developers in my company make great code, and that we pick the right architectural decisions. We do a good job, and our customers seem to love us (well, they keep buying stuff!).

But I am a business guy. From a business perspective, I am totally hyped about machine learning and artificial intelligence (which for some reason is the same in my mind – well, let us say – was). I believe it’s the future, and I totally want to build the next “machine-learning”-applied product that will conquer the world.

But I have no experience with machine learning, artificial intelligence, deep learning or any of the other fancy words I’ve read.

Today’s startups should seek to change the physical world

Uber. Airbnb. Tesla. Xiaomi. SpaceX.

We hear about these tech “unicorns” all the time: Uber, the 40 million USD transport company, without owning any taxis. Airbnb the biggest hotelier, without owning any hotels.

It’s easy to get caught up in a discussion about their value, and how awesome they are.

What is the most powerful technology of 2015?

It’s funny. When you look at popular tech media or tweets from important tech people, you’ll find a lot of hype about:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Autonomous cars
  • Virtual reality
  • Stem cells
  • Cancer treatments
  • 3D printers
  • Quantum computers
  • Drones
  • Cryptocurrency
  • Nanotechnology
  • DNA sequencing
  • Personalized medicine

I am just as hyped about these technologies as everyone else.

I totally believe in strong artificial intelligence, being driven to the office in a robot car (or just going there in virtual reality). I also believe in defying death, and that should be one of the most important goals of humanity.

Hold kæft hvor er Uber godt…

Nu har jeg ikke skrevet på bloggen i lang tid, men synes i dag jeg noget at dele.

Jeg har hele mit liv været nærig, og forsøge at spare penge. Men over de sidste par år har jeg fået mere og mere travlt, og er begyndt at købe flere og flere luksuser. Normalt kigger jeg altid på min egen timeløn, og sammenligner med hvad jeg kan “outsource” opgaven for.

En luksus jeg har været ekstremt glad for er ugentlig rengøring, som sparer mig for virkelig meget tid.

I januar måned er der dog åbnet en løsning, som har overrasket mig fuldstændig.

Jeg bruger mere og mere tid på transport, især når jeg skal rundt til kunder. Det tager sindssygt lang tid: lige meget om det er cykel eller transport.
Jeg begyndte at overveje at købe en billig bil, men det virkede som en vanvittig investering, selvom det kunne spare mig for rigtig meget tid.

En eftermiddag blev jeg introduceret til at appen “Uber”, var åbnet i Danmark, og faktisk fungerede. Uber er en “taxa app”, hvor du billigt kan komme fra A-Z. Som dansker er jeg ekstremt bekymret for taxa, fordi jeg ved det næsten koster 100kr bare at kigge på en taxa…

Men…

En fredag morgen, kl, 4, skulle jeg ud i lufthavnen til en forretningsrejse. Busserne kørte ikke på dette tidspunkt. Jeg åbnede min Uber app, sagde “request uber”. Jeg fik efter 5s “Hassan” som chauffør, og jeg kunne se han holdte inde ved Rådhuspladsen. 5 Min efter var han nået ud på Amager (hvor jeg ventede i varmen), jeg fik ned og direkte ind i bilen og kørte ud i lufthavnen…. Og det kostede…. 72kr for 15 minutters kørsel.

Siden er jeg begyndt at bruge det mange gange om ugen. Kundemøder, hjem fra byen og hurtig transport.

Det er vildt. Det virker SÅ godt.

Det her er “næste skridt” indenfor transport. Bor du i byen har du IKKE brug for en bil: du kan leve med metro og Uber.

Nå – jeg beklager fan-sangen. Det er bare sjældent at jeg oplever et produkt, som virkelig kan spare tid og penge i mit liv – og det her Uber gjort mere end noget andet produkt har gjort i år. Vil du gerne selv prøve det, har jeg lavet en fin hjemmeside hvor du kan prøve det: Uber rabatkoder.

Undgå arbejdsløshed i fremtiden: undgå jobs som chauffør, kundeservice og rengøring

Jeg har tidligere beskrevet hvordan teknologi i den nære fremtid, kommer til at ændre samfundet. Der er dog nogen ting som ændres hurtigere end andre, og især nogen kategorier af jobs som bliver ramt tidligere end andre.

I dette indlæg vil jeg beskrive 3 teknologier, som kan fjerne store grupper af jobs i løbet af de næste maks. 10-15 år.

Anmeldelse af leap motion – kontroller computeren med din finger

Så er det slut med at bruge musen til din computer. I stedet kan du vifte dine hænder i luften, også gør din computer alt det du ønsker. På den måde kan du slippe for museskader, nemt visualisere 3D og frit styre computeren på en nemmere måde.

Det var det drøm jeg gik ind med, da jeg købte leap motion. Leap motion er et helt nyt produkt, som havde release date d. 22 juli 2013. Jeg havde bestilt en en måned før, og var så heldig den kom med FedEx d. 30 juli. I dette indlæg vil jeg lave en anmeldelse af min oplevelse med leap motion.’
