Will Write iOS Application for Licenses

Bobby Johnson

Hello Chicago,

I am a passionate developer inspired by the Chicago Technology Scene enough that I have attended the last two Software Craftsmanship North America conferences. I currently live near OIympia, WA and work in the heart of downtown Seattle. My friend Sarah Gray suggested I post here.

I am interested in getting more into iOS development. I have written some prototypes with XCode and MonoTouch. I really like MonoTouch and would really like my own license, so I can create some personal applications and play in the space. But sadly am unable to afford it at the moment.

That is where you come in. If you would like a simple iOS application for your organization and are willing to fund the purchase price of an Apple Developers license and a MonoTouch license, I will develop an application for you and walk it through the Apple submission process to get it up on the App Store.

Here are some more details:
Apple Developers License: $99
MonoTouch Professional License: $399
Payment Method:PayPal

Example of what I can do with the MonoTouch Trial. This application consumes and displays both RSS & Twitter feeds as well as showing some nice existing web content. This is the type of application I am offering to build for you.

You can get a sense of what kind of developer I am and what interests me by checking out these things.

Sound like a deal? Are you interested? Contact me.

Hello everyone, Thank you very much for your interest in my little project. I have successfully made commitments to two separate projects and do not want to spread myself any thiner. Good luck to you all and with your projects. I will keep you posted on the outcome of this one as it progresses.

Thanks again, Bobby

Bobby, Thanks for the offer as it's very generous. I prefer not suggesting any commercial ideas as I would rather not profit off our generosity. But I have a civic engagement project called http://tabsonrahm.org which aims to keep Rahm Emanuel's administration accountable. I am working with a DePaul group to flush out the features and social outreach parts and would fit nicely with your iPhone development. Thanks, Chirag

I dig the feel of your site. Just sent you a message with contact info. Let's see what awesomeness we can create together.

Hi Bobby!

I just sent you a personal message about working on an app together. I would LOVE to hear back from you to see if this could work out. Thank you in advance and I hope to hear from you soon!

This is a really cool proposal, I hope a match is made from this

Hi Christine,

Sorry for the confusion. Let me try to clarify. The example application from the video consumes existing content, meaning you already have an RSS, Twitter or JSON feed or services that I can consume. So I would put together a similar application for you and see it through the itunes submission process. I am also open to ideas, but the scope needs to be limited to what I can accomplish in a few weekends. Does that make sense?

I will shoot you an email with my contact info.

I am very interested but unclear about the end product. Is the end product and iphone app for my site, regardless of the site complexity? Please email me with your contact info so that we can talk further about what you offer. My email address is: [email protected]
