iOS Development and Machine Learning

About Cosmic Arrows

Throughout human learning & development courses at Georgia State University, a career in QA testing, and programming as a hobby, 'Neuro' is used as an inanimate audience to assist in learning and teaching software deveolopment and testing. This idea is derived from a software engineering practice called 'rubber duck debugging'. According to Wikipedia, "rubber duck debugging is a reference to a story in the book The Pragmatic Programmer in which a programmer would carry around a rubber duck and debug their code by forcing themselves to explain it, line-by-line, to the duck."" The goal is to use 'Neuro' as a teaching tool while working on projects that may assist in the future towards learning computational neuroscience (using Python and R) to be used in correlation with Core Machine Learning for iOS (object oriented modeling in Swift). A handful of tech companies are currently researching 'brain hacking', which is designing programs that provoke neurological responses, rewards based apps to keep people coming back. The idea is that 'Neuro' will drive learning, development, testing, and teaching.

Learning From a great team and JIRA's Backlog

Artificial Neural Networks and Femmoji

Every year when Apple releases new updates to its software, we're in the know by always remaining in front. For example Apple's latest iOS 10 release simplified emjois by allowing developers to create sticker applications enhancing the way we communicate via text message!

We've helped clients such as Eboticon expand its white label emoji application written in Objective-C creating additional features such as analytics and push notifications using Google Firebase.

Test-Driven Development in Swift 4

In a digital world, our mental state follows steps similar to computers by following certain steps to acheive desired outcomes. Our daily tasks can be simplified even more where our mobile devices help us keep track and automate certain processes. As architets we typically think in terms of computer objects and data types that can communicate with each other in a sense. Thanks to @swiftpainless our lastest application and video tutorials walk you through creating a to-do list application while tracking a specific address.

Through well documented and organized code, you'll learn with us how to pimp out the model-view-controller design pattern. Most importantly you'll learn how to run automated unit tests driving development of an iOS application!

Sure, we tend to be selective with new technology because at the end of a project it's our reputation behind the products produced ultimately driving perceptions of future partners.

location based apps

Starting out with an app at Georgia Perimeter College, I fell in love with creating location based apps which led into 1st and Goal and working with SB&D on Tool Connect to deliver relevant data to many users.  Listen

quality assurance

Operating as a tester requires you to think critically and outside of the box. Every user will think differently, as they should. This creative process helps in seeing the possibilities of coding logic.  Listen

artificial intelligence

Neuroinformatics, computer vision, and how computers improve error rates sparked a personal vision of bridging the knowledge gap between computational neuroscience and machine learning.  Listen

Handheld Architect Coding Tutorials

In the development community there is a mantra that states its best to learn by teaching others which is why I developed an app to regergitate tutorials developing and testing mobile applications. Handheld Architect offers video tutorials and users receive push notifications once new content is released.

Think of it as always having 'Neuro' in your back-pocket.

I appreciate and thank you for all your efforts towards making the Tool Connect project a success. You joined the team at a juncture where we needed somebody like you to hit the ground running, you did exactly that and more. I am a firm believer of the fact that for a team to be successful every team member needs to contribute fully, you were a key part of the team and you did contribute 100%. I wish you success in all your future endeavors.

Very few companies are lucky enough to find a developer as talented, hard-working, and reliable as Laurence! He is a true team player, rescuing as we went through heavy iOS development cycles. He has truly become one of Eboticon's most valuable assets. I highly recommend this guy!

I personally hired Mr. Wingo because of his experience with mobile development. I placed him within our QA team to assist in leading mobile testing. He has worked with both our domestic and international teams to test advertising campaigns before launch into production environments. Definitely dependable, hard-working, and always willing to go the extra mile in a short amount of time.
