Hello, World: Meet Bryan

Bryan is one of the engineers responsible for the Tumblr iOS App that everybody is talking about. We dropped by his workstation to get the scoop on the app’s development and to learn more about the guy who helps make it happen.

What’s the last feature you pushed?

Here’s a little feature I snuck in that I quite like, it provides a shortcut for creating link posts from the mobile Safari browser.

The last bug you fixed?

I am constantly making sure that images don’t fall on subpixel boundaries. The iPad mini (with its non-retina screen) really doesn’t like that.

Any other blogs you run?

My favorite is Artisanshit. It really bothers me that just about every restaurant and coffee shop nowadays describes their fare as “artisanal,” so I’ve been posting pictures of signs/menus/etc. whenever I find them, and a few friends have started to help. It’s way too easy once you start looking.

I also reblog anything iOS-related to ios.tumblr.com and write about the fun (and not so fun) parts of building iOS applications at cocoa.tumblr.com.

Any Tumblr tricks you can share??

Yes! There are a bunch of gestures built into the app. Here are some you may not know about:

Slide across GIFs to animate them frame-by-frame
Slide the new post button up to quickly post a photo
Slide the new post button left to quickly make a text post
Tap-and-hold the reblog button to fast reblog a post
Swipe right to pop back to the previous screen
What’s next?

We’ve been hard at work on some great updates and I’m really excited to be able to share them soon. Making it easier to discover great new Tumblr posts, blogs, and tags is something we’re really focused on. Stay tuned!

leiloando meus livros com ajuda do twitter

Pra juntar uma grana prum macbook, decidi leiloar 15 livros. Com ajuda do pessoal no twitter e uma pitadinha de competição, o leilão superou em muito as minhas expectativas :)

Esperando vender alguns pros meus colegas aqui de natal e doar o resto, coloquei um leilão no ar e avisei no twitter.

De repente - BAM! :) Muitos amigos retwittaram e os lances começaram a chegar. Em pouco tempo todos os livros já tinham lance. Continuei divulgando durante a semana, e sempre que eu divulgava a galera ajudava retwittando e mais lances apareciam. Twitter = WIN.

Cairo Noleto deu a idéia, e o dono de um livro começou a receber um email sempre que o lance dele era coberto. Isso facilitou a vida de quem queria o livro e ajudou a esquentar o leilão. Maior diversão era ver duas pessoas disputando um livro lance por lance :) Competição = WIN.

No fim o leilão foi bem bem melhor que eu esperava. Ficou no ar uma semana e todos os livros foram vendidos - alguns com lance maior que o valor na amazon - e o total foi bem maior que o que eu achava. Obrigado a todo mundo que deu lance e divulgou no twitter :)

Tudo isso foi feito sem nenhum conhecimento de social whatever ou vendas, e por isso tenho certeza que devo ter escorregado muito. O que você acha que eu podia ter feito pra conseguir mais/maiores lances?

Ah, gostou da idéia e quer fazer um leilão também? Manda um email pra elomar@maisweb.org.

ps nerd:

A aplicação é feita em sinatra + mongodb, heroku + addon pro mongohq, e usa uma pitada de google app engine pra mandar os emails em background - tudo free.

rubysoc, daily digest 06/08

Today I finished a proposal for a nicer ActiveResource API. To get to that I read the documentation of some restful-like apis (like flickr, google data apis and sun cloud) looking for things I would need to make a nice client to them and asked my mentor and some other rubysts for feedback. Now I’m going to make it work :)

On the non-rubysoc side I made a little sinatra app to sell my books. It’s hosted on heroku, uses mongodb for data and appengine for cron tasks. I also got my welcome pack from Roane State College, where I’m going to study for a year. It turns out I’m going to live in Oak Ridge, a city created to project manhattan and that hosts the world fastest supercomputer (and where Megan Fox was born). Nice! :)

Today I got association retrieval though atom links working!

With the links structure in place, I think it will be easy to achieve my next goals: the CRUD operations working through links and then it all again with XML and JSON. Tomorrow I’ll start working towards that and start reading the Atom spec to clarify how some things should work.

Today I also - finally! - got completely rid of an old freelance job. yeah! :)
