New project, a big challenge

I’m really excited about my next project. It’s always hard to maintain high levels of enthusiasm for a long project until the end. For a little over a year I spent about 80-90% of my time here at Kyan in ‘Flash solitary confinement’ working very hard on a second generation pension modeller. Not the first time I’ve been involved with a Flash pension modelling development. I am an expert.

So it may surprise you to read that the project I am eager to begin is a…,

Pension modeller!?!

That’s right, a pension modeller. Not in Flash this time though, not even in a browser. On everyone favourite gadget – the iPhone.

It’s been a quite a while since I was required to learned a whole new technology. Developing in Cocoa (the application development environment used to develop Mac and iPhone application) will be quite a change. New IDE, new framesworks, new APIs and even a new language which doesn’t look like anything else. A challenge indeed.

I look forward blending experience gained in mobile programming and pension modelling with Kyan’s creative tallent to produce a very unusual app. Maybe the first of it’s kind?

I’ll keep you updated on how I get on. This is should be fun.

Is imitation really the sincerest form of flattery?

A new site has appeared on the wonderful inter-tubes, brought to us by a web design firm in Minnesota – Rocket 55 – that looks remarkably similar to ours. As designers we all stand on the shoulders of giants, borrowing ideas and concepts, using the same typefaces, co…
