Gohan 1.33 開發者話

with one comment

開發此版本時,一直在想如何可以把用戶聯繫起來,讓他們彼此分享和交流。1.0 的出現只是為用戶提供一個搜尋工具,並未達到互動的效果。而 1.33 就是在這個搜尋根基上為用戶提供一個更開放、更容易分享資訊的飲食交流平台。

作為一個業餘開發者,不得不考慮如何在有限的時間及資源下獲得最理想的效果,以達到以上的目的。

透過 flickr 及 twitter 的應用,一方面可以免除儲存上的限制,另一方面更可擴大使用層面。用戶不再受制於單一平台或程式,透過不同的使用方式用戶可取得相同的資訊。即使不是 iPhone 的用戶,亦可在 flickr 或 twitter 上獲得同樣資訊。其他程式開發員亦可共用 Gohan 的資源。

Gohan 仍處於起步階段,可以改進的地方仍有很多。Gohan 能否發揮應有的效用有賴用戶的參與。無論如何,希望 Gohan 能為 iPhone 用戶帶來更多生活上的方便。

Gohan Roadmap

with one comment

For those who are interested…

Upcoming release will include:
– Photos (stay tuned, this is a major change)
– Restaurant information reporting (a more appropriate way to report things like shop-is-closed etc.)
– Hot topics (nothing will go to dark hole, your reviews will be shown up here, don’t worry)
– More (if have time, which is unlikely)

Thanks for everyone who spent your precious time to write review(s). Thanks for those who reported “Shop is Closed!!!”, I will be constantly updating the database. Thanks for those who wrote me email and gave useful feedback. Last but not least, thanks for those who installed this application. Your support is crucial to this application.

Fragile Development

with 2 comments

Gohan and Reading follow closely to fragile development process, which is known for:

– No unit testing
– No continuous integration
– No documentation
– No code comment
– No code style checking
– No pair programming
– No user story
– No stupid story cards (no wasting of natural resources)
– No iteration planning
– No morning stand-up

My thought just works.

Offline Reading. Illegal? Or not?

Quoted from Yahoo! HK user agreement:
“你同意不會把本服務的任何部分(包括你的雅虎帳號),本服務的使用或登陸本服務複制、保留副 本、抄襲、出售、買賣、轉賣或利用作為任何商業用途。”

BUT

“雅虎透過雅虎網絡為用戶提供豐富的線上資源,包括各種通訊工具、線上論壇、購物服務、搜尋 服務、個人化內容及品牌程式設計(「本服務」)”

咁提供新聞內容算係「本服務」定唔係呢?

Yahoo! HK 每頁底部都有 “© 2008 Yahoo! Hong Kong Limited. 版權所有 不得轉載” 我以上既 quotation 又算唔算係轉載?
