web design apps

*Okay black Tumblr , listen up!*

So I’ve been thinking about doing this app/site

It’s where people who are looking for roommates in the area that corresponds with their lifestyle. ( children / pets / etc) and meet with the office at the apartment complex rather than meeting in some sketchy area and take a tour of it together before deciding to do it. I want it as a black owned business so anyone in the black community who is good at app development and spreading the word around would be amazing!

No one wants a roommate they don’t trust or know will be dependable so this app will definitely help others including myself.

So if you would like to help please spread the word or even contact me bout if you know someone in the web design/app design and apartment complex business. I don’t have a name for it yet so that’s also for discussion

Thanks in advance !

Best web technologies and tools for 2015

Web has certainly come a long way in last few years. We have technologies and tools that have changed the way we develop web apps. As the technology keeps evolving, we will see more improvements in the coming year. In this article I am going to list some of the best web technologies and tools that are going to make an impact in 2015 and coming days.

ECMAScript 6

ES6 is the future of JavaScript and is going to bring many new features. The good news is that the feature set of ES6 is already frozen and browsers have already started implementing the features. Tools like Traceur already allow you to write code in ES6 and then transpile it to ES5 so that it works in Today’s browsers. Furthermore frameworks like AngularJS and Ember are going to target ES6 in future releases. Given its feature set and popularity I think ES6 is definitely going to revolutionise JavaScript development.

AngularJS 2.0

Google’s AngularJS is one of the popular frameworks for developing Single Page Apps. The good news is thatAngularJS 2.0 is under development and this time it’s more powerful, better and faster. As Durandal, another popular SPA framework, is converging into AngularJS the combo is definitely going to make an impact. AngularJS 2.0 is also going to target ECMAScript 6 which means your JavaScript code is going to be future proof.

At Home in the High Desert with @thejoshuatreehouse

Sara and Rich Combs of the Joshua Tree House (@thejoshuatreehouse) fell in love with the California desert the first time they visited. “It makes you feel like you can be yourself and create what you want to create,” Rich says. Last May, the couple, both 29 years old, found themselves with a 1940s hacienda, which they renovated and listed for rental online about five months later. When they’re in San Francisco, Rich and Sara work as web designers, designing apps for startups and tech companies. They used their backgrounds to redo the house’s interiors, curate art on the walls and add touches reminding guests to take life slow — from flipping a record on a vintage player to brewing a cup of pour-over coffee. “We want people to enjoy the process of creating something, even if it’s just coffee,” Rich says. Their advice to other small business owners on Instagram is to remember that snapping a single photo is never as compelling as telling an entire story. “The story of Joshua Tree obviously captured us,” says Sara. “We figured out how we can share that feeling with people who are interested in staying at the house.”
