|Title||App Inventor 2 : create your own Android apps / David Wolber, Hal Abelson, Ellen Spertus, and Liz Looney.|
So this won't be misconstrued, I used mit's app inventor since I could and
because I have andriod devices at hand. I am fluent in java, the computer language of choice
when it comes to programming native mobile apps and I am also addicted to the warm, dark beverage
of the same name. I could look into alternatives of android development and even
venture into the Apple arena but I took the path I did to get an app working as quickly as I could! All of that
to less succinctly say that I am not trying to defend app developer or to slight Apple
in any way!
¹ And when I say funny what I really mean is that they are witty and merciless when it comes to mocking someone who has made a programming mistake of any magnitude. It's a dangerous but endorphin packed game to play and naturally some people are better at it than others. I like to practice a controlled restraint in anticipation of the inevitable times I'll be on the receiving end. The deadliest players possess both programming prowess as well as a sharp tongue backed by a quick wit. It does make the day go by quickly when you are literally laughing out loud a good deal of the time. A surprising amount of quality work is the accidental and seemingly unintended byproduct of this game. Sure your mother may be accused of wearing army boots but the only things that really matter are can her offspring code, including while under duress when necessary, and do they bringing more than just a proverbial knife to the verbal (and also proverbial!) gun fight?
