Officially Phil-ilified (Certified.. hehe)

Thought I’d take a moment to thank two very inspirational and motivational teachers who not only encouraged a struggling designer to learn something as difficult as code (the tears I’ve cried… yeek), but who also managed to share their excitement of app development that made the coding bug easy to catch.

In his farewell speech, what Phil wanted us to keep in mind was that, even though it is a probability that we are going to hit some brick walls when applying for jobs, that those brick walls are only there to stop those who are unwilling to try harder to get that position.

What I took away from this is that every one of us holds the secret of getting onto Platform 9 3/4, but some of us get dissuaded by the house elf that’s blocking up the gateway. What we need to do is have enough faith in ourselves to go that extra mile, get rid of the house elf (sorry Dobby!) and get through that wall.

Probably not the metaphor Phil had in mind, but if it makes sense to me, then I’m positive to have gone from Phil and Krista’s classes with the knowledge that I am magical.

Thanks for everything!

Harry Potter + Quiz + App = ???

So, as of right now, doing a quick search for a decent quiz/game Harry Potter Application in both the Playstore as well as the App store wield insufficient results: Where are all the Harry Potter Fan/Mobile Application Developers? Are they dormant, only to be awakened upon J.K. Rowling’s non-existent new Harry Potter children’s trilogy novels? Young James maybe, who has new adventures to share with his sidekick, Hugo? Please come out of hibernation and create awesome apps, or at least challenging quiz apps please.

Do you perhaps agree with me? Because it is a possibility that a pretty cool application will soon make itself known to the android market, one that a certain developer *cough* me *cough* has been cooking up for quite some time. It has it all: tricky questions, cute animated characters, a fun, really hard-to-beat-unless-you’re-really-lucky-to-grab-the-snitch-while-it’s-invisible Quiddich game, and did I mention really tricky questions? People *cough* me *cough* love to be challenged with quizzes, like to think instead of reading a question and going “duh, it’s this one”. If you’re like this person *cough*, then there is a great possibility of you also liking this quiz game.

Oh, what’s that? What name will it bear? It is officially known as: NovelEnd. All questions based on the novels and only on the novels. How much can you recall from the books? Find out when you download this game from the app store later this month.

 

Sooooooo….. icon72x72 I’d watch out for this icon soon 🙂
