Getting better all the time

This is great, Cabe. There is tons of value in making things easier for design engineers. This is a nice new trend. Control engineers are experiencing the same thing. More capability, less original programming.

Rob, You are 200 percent correct. The trend I've been observing is programming tools are easy to use with emphasis in developing the product not in software development. Crowd funding sources such as Kickstarter are allowing entrepreneurs the opportunity to build great products. Programming tools like Codename One allow these entrepreneurs to rapidly build prototypes as well as production units with ease. All product feature/functions can easily be developed without the burden of becoming a hardcore programming. I'll definitely be checking out this tool for my own mobile/smartphone applications. Great article Cabe!

It is quite strange that, such an exceptional app is not approved by Apple, as professional developers working at iphone app developers newyork I have found code name an exceptional tool for development.

Codename One

Cabe, Very informative.  Interesting that Java is competing with the HTML5 apps that have been making so much noise in mobile. Would be interesting to know if debugging "translated" code becomes a problem in development.

@apresher: Yes and that will make sure HTML will have to be drastically improved. Java has gone a long way and to compete with something like that HTML5 will have to do wonders

I'm curious to know who the beta testers are.  Did they pull from a broad range of users with different abilities/skills?

Some of us know just enough HTML to cause trouble but not enough to get out of it.  It would be great if Codename One could help.

Codename One not approved by Apple

Cabe, If you go to the free Udemy training session for Codename One, the founder of the mobil app development software states the software usage on Apple devices is still under negotiations. I assume Apple wants sometype of royalties based on developers creating apps using Codename One software. Hopefully, this isn't the case. Great article and resource!!

Maker Codename One Udemy Training

 Cabe, I checked out the Udemy Training videos for Maker Codename One and its quite an impressive mobile app development software package. I really found the Form Builder feature of the tool to be exceptionally powerful because of the customization capabilities you can make to your app. Last, the Preview feature allows you to test the app right on your mobile device prior to the final build which is good for debug/modifications. Its a really cool app! Thanks for bringing this resource to the Design News community Cabe!

NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books.
