Chris Tacke and Alex Feinman have started blogging about a new project called Project Resistance. The idea is to document the end to end experience of developing and selling a small utility application for the Windows Mobile platform. Along the way they’ll comment about their experiences, struggles and productivity wins etc. All the source code and related material will be available online as the project progresses.
The application is rather simple. It allows you to select colour bands on a resistor and will tell you the resistor’s resistance. See the Wikipedia entry on resistors if you have no idea what any of that means.
In light of my previous blog post and after talking to Chris Tacke, I’ve offered to follow his blog posts and create an iPhone variant of the application. It’ll be interesting to contrast the relative strengths and weaknesses of each platform, and how the App Store experience compares.
The first blog post I’ll make on the iPhone application will be covering signing up to http://www.github.com to host the project’s source code.
