Hi, I am Ricky. I am a Senior iOS Developer based in Singapore. I have developed at least 10 different iOS Mobile Apps. Many of the app are just basic day to day apps. A few of them are using location based technology – Core Location. I also learn to build the basic indoor positioning mobile apps using iBeacon.
The purpose of this website is to share what I know about iOS apps development. This website will be my journal as a mobile application developer. I am going to write down my iOS learning journey, my experience, my thoughts on the latest sdks, latest developments, programming styles on these 2 different ecosystems. I am going to compare and contrast the different programming languages: Objective-C and Swift (for iOS).
I have been working in Malaysia and Singapore. I will share my experience in working on some of those iOS projects on this little website.
I always believe Life is about learning. In the last year alone, I have seen many interesting development in the technology sector. Just to name a few: FinTech (Financial Technology), Mobile wallet, BlockChain, Indoor positioning System (IPS), Droid and Home Automation.
Even the development tools for developers are growing strong. One instance is the React Native. I just started to learn React Native. After I gain enough experience, I will write about this new development tool.
About Myself – iOS Developer in Singapore
Before I become a mobile apps developer, I have over 3 years of experience in web development, search engine optimization (SEO) and internet marketing. I have decided to shift my career to become a mobile application developer because I believe it is one of the best inventions in technology. The mobile technology will change the way we do works probably for the next 100 years. There will be a lot of innovations coming out from this technology. And, I want to be one of the people who create products that will change the world in a better way.
Since early 2012, I have started to teach myself on how to develop iOS app via the CS 193P iPhone Application Development Free Video Courses by Stanford University. I remember the time when I first bought my Mac, iPod Touch and iPad to start my career as an iOS developer. It was really fun and excited.
The First 3 year of my career, I was working as an iOS developer in Malaysia. Then, I got a job offer in Singapore as a Senior iOS Developer in a startup company.
Occasionally, I received some freelance iOS projects via my website. But lately, I do not have free time to take new project.
This is an exciting journey for me and this website will be my little journal.
How to Contact Me for Freelance/Contract iOS Projects?
If you are a mobile application developer in Malaysia or Singapore and would like to collaborate with me in any non-profit or for-profile mobile application development projects, please feel free to contact me.
If you are a business owner/entrepreneur/start-up founder and you are seeking a freelance mobile application developer, you may contact me as well.
NOTE: If you are contacting me for any contract work/freelance jobs, please make sure that you know what you want. If possible, I hope you already have most of the technical details/requirements ready for the mobile app project that you want me to develop. The best scenario would be having a wireframe with some comments on every action inside every single screen.
If you do not know what you want, the technical requirements are not decided yet and the wireframe is not ready, It is very hard for me to help you. Because I am unable to estimate a timeframe for the project and an estimated cost for you.
If you already have most of the technical requirements ready but the wireframe is not ready yet, I might be able to help you finding a graphic designer to make a wireframe at affordable cost.
