I’ve been a developer, on many different platforms, for just under two decades. Like many code monkeys, I enjoy learning new architectures. I’m not exactly sure why, but programming for WebOS has me more excited than I’ve been since working with GCC on the Palm Personal. The idea of building apps with web technologies on a portable device sounded interesting. I knew that certain things would be easy and others hard. That is always the case with any platform.
With Word Whirl queued up for release in the App Catalog, I decided it might help others to describe some of the things I’ve learned. This is my way of giving back to all the PreCentral users that helped during the process of taking Word Whirl from a request post to a published application. Hopefully this will help some more make the leap from Homebrew to App Catalog and get more apps out there.
