Polishing

I stayed in my friend Zhixing's place after polishing the last CS3217 project together with Jingping last night. We plan to publish the small app on App Store to gain some experiences as individual mobile game developers. Hopefully we'll launch a neat version for girls around the Chinese New Year.

The past week is pretty joyful, mostly on debugging and feature/UI polishing. I helped solve a crucial bug on Android TextView text selection. I also polished the website reading page JavaScripts to improve the user experience. The basic web service api also started to get developed. Last Saturday, I attended a design thinking workshop by the OrangeHive. Yangyu and I made a creative logo in the workshop and  that was an interesting experience. 

The iOS app for readpeer is getting great. Most iOS development is done by the junior, Zijian while I sometimes help solve some bugs when he encounters problems. Zijian is getting self-motivated and happy playing with iOS development. That is really great! We are expected to come up with a prototype in a month and then seek professional designers for UI polishing. It is lucky that the idea didn't die as a MVP but really going to become a product for people to use. The web client is launching next week as an experiment for market testing and bug reporting. Busy days are coming.

Another good habbit I started to form is to eat less pork and do more physical exercises every day. It is surprising to get the feedback from my peers that I looked thinner only after 1 week's time.

Too many good things happen this week and no bad news worths recording for now. Stay alert.
