There is always time for everything. Prioritizing is important.| New Projects and New Adventure!

June 11, 2012 4 comments

Lately I’ve been busy in a lot of things I have OJT and I’m also working part time on my projects, e.g Android Apps and etc. But then I just realized that it doesn’t make sense anymore, I can’t continue with the project atleast for now because I have better things to do.  So I will probably stop the android development for a while in order for me to focus on much more important things. Especially classes is starting, and I’m haven’t finished my OJT (10 days left thank God) . And I’m excited because I can be able to work on my projects and prioritize on things that I needed to do to improve myself.

You guys probably noticed that the site has gone inactive for a while, its because I’m working on something interesting, I’m working on making an application or web application, I will not tell all the details but at least I’m telling this just let you know I’m still alive, barely breathing though lol.

I’ve been working on this website for like 2 weeks and I think 3 days if I can remember, working 2 hours morning, OJT in the rest of the day, and about an hour or two when arrived at home. In those 2 weeks I’ve covered a lot basics on web development, I learned PHP, HTML 5, CSS atleast the concepts I guess that’s the important thing to learn, the concepts. Right now I’ve reading jQuery and Javascript its like 5 days and I’m still in progress to learn those languages hopefully soon. This website is one of our projects in school but I did’nt do my best developing it at school, and I really want to improve it more and now I can finally develop it more and improve it because time permits me to.

I don’t feel tired at all but there are times that I just wanna lie in bed and hope in morning I can fully recover from exhaustion. I’ve never worked like this in my life, its like it was the first time and it was good, for the fist time, I’m doing things that is very productive everyday.

Life is too short to spend it on worthless things at least in your different perspective. I guess it really true that when love what you do, then you will never work a day in your life take me as an example.

Anyways in the latter part of the development I will do a documentation of the web application breaking the application into bits and pieces of codes and to give a little tips xD.

Source Codes will be upload soon.

Creating A layout.xml For Calculator Layout Design | CalculatorPlus

May 10, 2012 1 comment

We are done creating the layout.xml file for the calculator design, it was a tough one because I was forced to read the design documentation and the design techniques in order the come up with  what design  we want. The important thing that we did was the android:layout_width="fill_parent" because its the thing that makes the row and column to be even and no overlapping between the buttons.

Kudos to the internet of course especially StackOverFlow.

After all the necessary feature of the program is done I’m gonna upload all the codes for the community. Oh and btw that Button H there is the unique feature of it.  We will be implementing it in the future.

In a few weeks we will be coding the Calculator.java it is where all the Java codes will be added and the functions that will make the program a workable piece of awesomeness.

loso!

Menu ListAcitivity instead of Acitivity in Android | CalculatorPlus

May 8, 2012 Leave a comment

Its been a while since I updated the Android Project, the reason is that I need to read and study some of Java and its functions its really confusing sometimes. Anyways there is a lot of ways to display the Menu in Android but this method that I’m using is the dynamic way of displaying its contents in the menu, instead of manually setting it up in the Manifest structure, I will just directly call the Activity without the hassle of configuring the Manifest file. So its like shortening the codes that will be using.

Honestly I also learned this method in just watching the tutorial and took me 2 days to fully understand the code then tweak some of it according to my needs. Anyhow here is the picture of the phone screen running the Menu ListActivity, since there is no file about this screen in the layout.xml then the only way to make it appear is the run the whole package.

The menu is pretty much fully set up now we only have to worry about the Calculator Class and SciCalculator Class, I started creating a design prototype of it but then I got lazy 😛

If you’re just starting to develop an android or anything really. YOUTUBE best teacher ever, and oh did I mentioned GOOGLE?

Bits And Pieces of The Application

April 24, 2012 4 comments

Yesterday we presented the overview of the application plan. Now we will try to explain each of them and the intents of each of the Activity(Pages). We will start on the SplashScreen Activity:

public class SplashScreen extends Activity() 

This here when the user click the icon the first thing that will happen to the application, it will show the logo, title and the version of the application. Usually SplashScreen isn’t really that necessary because we can operate even though it is disable, We will  implemented it for the purpose of beautifying the application. This is the first thing that I will do since it only takes few codes the work.

public class MenuMain extends Activity()

After the SplashScreen this is the next thing that will happen to the application it will direct the the MainMenu Activity . There is a lot of ways to implement menus but since we are aiming for simplicity we will just use buttons. Buttons are great for everything when you get used to it, a whole new world of ideas you will discover. Maybe for the future projects we will use the more advance method of menus like widgets.

 public class CalculatorMain extends Activity()
public class SciCalculatorMain extends Activity() 

 This is where all the magic happens this is where the core of the application is, we will codes together on this area more often debug stuff and shit. Since it needs to have a database to store the last 5 equations, we will have a research on SQLite platform on Android since we don’t have any idea on how to implement it or try to see if there is any other solution rather implementing the SQLite.

public class AboutApp extends Activity()

We will put in here the ones who help contribute to the project, the one who is supporting it and making this impossible stunt possible. We will get famous in no time guys. haha

Thats it for now,  tomorrow I will probably create the visual images of the application and take a screenshot and show it to you guys, I will also show you how to make the UI its as easy as 123 trust me.

BTW naa nay ni sign up isa ka bouk for the Designs sa application lamats kaayo bai, due to his request dili sya paila hehehe

Rough Draft Of The Calculator App

April 23, 2012 Leave a comment

I just finished with the rough draft, basically this is the flow or somewhat pages of the entire application, It would be best if we have an icon, logo, background but that is really not important at the moment, we need to first make each pages and make features in each and everyone of them. At the end of the week I will create a written Project Proposal for everyone to read and code some of the parts in order for the project to start running.

Some of you might be wondering why Calculator? Calculator because it is a very simple program yet we can cover almost all the basic android programming terms on how to code. So its like we are familiarizing the Android Development by building a simple calculator after this we can continue making more complex applications and move forward. One step at a time guys. WE CAN DO THIS.

Anyone can join or just watch on how to develop applications or ask questions.. really guys we really need your support!

For anyone who wants to have the developer’s kit on Android I have the complete files if ever you want to have one. Its easier for you just get it from the usb than to download because it takes hours to download all the files.

For those who want to start reading about android development please go to their site Android. All the things are found their including the downloads and tutorials, I’m recommending you guys if you start on HELLO WORLD app so that you can grasp parts of how to code inside Android.

*And for those you want to learn designing naa sad didto on how to design the logo icons background.
Pag practice2x lang sad ug Java kay mao rajud atong gamiton sayun ra ang Java basa2x lang gud.
Mag himu pud ko ug site nga dedicated ani nga project so everyone can sign up and post their ideas works and etc in the site so every can see.

TINABANGAY TA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I KNOW ICT STUDENTS MGA BRIGHT UG MATINABANGON
TRUST ME GUYS DAGHAN TAG MA LEARN ANI NOT JUST SA ANDROID BUT OVERALL. 

PEACE \m/

Looking For Amateur Talents in Java Programming and Android Development.(Programmer and Designer)

April 21, 2012 4 comments

Hello I’m looking for amateur talents who can help me create an applications. My purpose of this is to help myself grow as a programmer and I can’t do this alone so I’m looking for someone who shares interest in programming and visual designing. The platform that will be using is Android Application Development and probably most of you already familiar with Android and its applications. Basically we will be create a simple program and then continue to grow.

Requirements would be:

Basic programming in C
-Basic understanding on Java Programming
-Have high motivations
-Basic knowledge in photoshop

Additional Requirements(A Plus Not recommended):

-Has an Android OS in their cellphones
-Carolinian
-Has high end PC
-Already knowledgeable on Android Application Development
-Finished subject 121(Data Structures)

Future Projects:

-Calculator/Sci Calculator
-Phonebook(with SQL Database)
-You guys can suggest!

Notes:

I’m only looking for interested people and amateur in programming because I myself is also an newbie and it will just intimidate any newbie if they see super imba programmers.  But any professional programmers is more than welcome to join for consultation purposes.

There is no deadline in this project and you can work as long as you want whenever you want to work I don’t really mind as long as we communicate because we are just in the same school might as well we will have a meeting to talk about our progress in the development. I actually have many ideas to mind as what will be the applications that we will do.

You must also know that I’m not a professional programmer i just learn by reading a book online so don’t just rely on the teacher to learn you must be resourceful in studying. But if you have questions you can ask and I will do everything I can to help you guys.

If in the future our plans can push through we will be using a versioning service so that we can keep track of our work so we can manage and compile the codes properly. The service that we will use is GitHub go the the site and read more about it. Remember if you really love programming, you don’t need a teacher for you to grow.

You can contact me in facebook or leave a comment here or better yet text me(09329091453). But I still have a work so I will come back to you as soon as I can.

You help me I help you and together we will grow.

You scratch my back, I scratch yours.

Best Regards,
Bryan
