Developer Info

Been working on the "developer" section of the site, adding info for folks who want to create Content Provider apps for the platform. The Content Provider API isn't as clean or simple as I would like, but it is capable of a lot of things that wouldn't be possible with something more simple. So I've been throwing together some documentation for those folks, as well as a sample application to help them get started. The sample app contains some really useful stuff, and I've open sourced it under the BSD License. So developers who want to make Content Providers will have good head start. They can reuse big portions of the sample app in their own implementations without having to worry about licensing restrictions, whether their app is proprietary or open source. Hoorah for open source!

Profile Section Added

I've added a profile section so that you can change your password and your profile image after registration--something that was noticeably lacking before! I'm also going to add some other features to the profile page...settings that you can use to control who can contact you and how often. Stay tuned.

Still working on press releases, should be done soon.

Some back office work

Spent the past week working on press releases and other marketing-type stuff for the site...totally foreign to me. When you've spent every day of the past 18 months writing code, communicating in English does not come naturally. My press releases sound like they were fingerpainted by an 8 year old.

It's alive

I started working on Subscribable a year and a half ago and it's done! Finally! Everybody check it out!

The official launch party will be in the parking lot of a Mechanicsville, VA burger king at 8:30pm tonight. Sorry, no celebrities or internet tycoons at this one--attendees will include myself, my girlfriend, and maybe a high school dropout or two loitering in the parking lot. Double Whoppers for everyone! Oh, the sweet taste of success...
