Programming is modern art
I love developing likeable apps
How can I set the focus to an element which is not horizontally or vertically in the same column/row.
Is it possible to get the default focus animation for a custom UIButton.
How can I compile a already existing framework for tvOS without having twice the framework in the workspace.
Why is a UISplitViewController not dismissing as expected if using an unwind Segue.
Based on the challenges the biggest learning is working with the focus engine in tvOS. Since the focus enginse is that important I explain it in more detail in my blog post about
"Developing an Apple TV app is different".
It's time to move onto new pastures
After 3.5 years and uncountable releases with payleven later, I decided to kick me again into cold water. It was a awesome time with a lot of remarkable and talented people. Some of you are now really good friends of mine and Berlin is not longer only a stop-over for me.
But now it's time to create something which bugs me since some years. I have to spend my time in creating something people love to use in their professional and private life.
A big thank you to the amazing p11-team, also those remarkable guys and girls which are no longer working for payleven.
How to find the golden nuggets of top-notch user experiences? This map illustrates Lean UX playfully and easy to remember. It is also the foundation of the workshop “From rainbow shitting unicorns to gorilla apps – become a UX pirate” which I hold with UX and UI Designer Tanja Oberst.
After several years working for payleven I think it's a good idea to write the biggest achievements from mobile point of view down. With the SDK’s payleven transformed from a closed product into a payment platform which helps other people to accept payments inside their products. That's really great and opens up a complete new dimension of possibilities for business and as well from technical perspective.
We build our own Chip&Pin library which enabled payleven doing EMV transactions.
We have managed the EMV certifications like MTIP and ADVT in remarkeable speed.
We have created nice frameworks which enabes payleven integrators to ship apps who can accept credit- and debit-cards. Some more technical details and sample projects can be foud at the payleven github page .
We learned a lot about mobile security which is for sure not only for finance apps important.
In times of of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and access to enterprise systems through an unprotected mobile device app, security is an overly important factor. However, many app developers still neglect security inside their apps because of ignorance or the lack of efforts. The talk will show how app developers can cover their app against man-in-the-middle-attacks with a manageable effort. Furthermore it will stress the misbelief of secure HTTPS connections and make clear how to communicate with a server on a secure way.
Used concepts are SSL-Pinning, checking if apps are running on a jailbroken phone as well as the usage of HMac to ensure data integrity.
The talk was given at
goto Berlin and MobileTech Conference in Berlin.
