Memory King Special

Today is a special day. Because this is the 10th blog post from the Memory King series. Well, the most awesome thing about this is that I am still writing these blog posts. Because that is the hardest part for me. Today I would like to review my work so far and more importantly, I would like to talk about the memory techniques, concepts behind it, and the reasons why am I building this app!

Key handling in React, Memory King

Good news, everyone! The first prototype of Numbers training is finished. So, today we will be talking about some challenges, which I was facing during development (key handling and more…). Well, it needs some tweaking, but the core concepts behind it are working. And I can start focusing more on the user experience. Also, since this prototype get really far, I would love to hear what you think about it and what are the possible improvements.

Code Editor for Memory King

I am a little bit in a hurry today. School started here and I am kind of overwhelmed with different activities. That doesn’t mean that nothing has been done during last week, but nothing is in state, when I could fully talk about it. At least I have some time to talk about my development environment.

IndexedDB for Memory King

For all fans of this series, I launch the mail list, so you can get the news directly into your mailbox. Nevertheless, this isn’t as interesting as the progress on the Memory King. I finally decided how to store user data. And I have made a big progress in this field.

Logo for Memory King

Sadly (or luckily) I wasn’t last week at the computer at all. So, no big progress has been done. That’s also the reason, why this blog post (from the Memory King series) is late. However, still I want to bring some news and valuable content into the blog post. And because every project needs an impressive logo and I promise that I will release the logo soon. We will look at the process of creating the logo for Memory King.

Getting dirty with Redux, Memory King

I already spend too much time setting up the stuff and talking about it in previous blog posts from the series. So, let’s stop beating around the bush and start using Redux. How you can guess, I never use Redux before and this will be absolute beginner’s impressions on this tool. Maybe, you also never use Redux before and we can learn something new together. Or you can just make the opinion whether or not you want to use it.

Suit up! Memory King

Third blog post from the chellenge series and still going. Today we will be looking on user interface and some design related stuff. Nobody cares about the stuff you programmed as long as you don’t give a cool GUI to it. And that’s the reason why I like to start with it. Because it will look like a lot of work has been done ?.

Memory King, Getting Ready

For those who thinks that I will quit after one week (including myself 😀 ). I am here with new blog including the latest news from development. For newcomers, you can read the first article where I introduce the challenge of just blend in. Shortly, there wasn’t done much development. But more importantly the project is already on GitHub and I finished most of the setups. All builds are passing and the project should be development ready. Hurray! ?

Memory King, Let’s Do This

If you’re like me, you probably have plenty of cool ideas, but you never really realize theme I usually don’t have enough experience, time or whatever. And that’s why many of my projects end up in somehow unfinished state. But this time it’s going to be different!

Long story short, I came across this article about some polish competition (so I am not sure if I understand the rules correctly 😀 ). But based on that I made up my own challenge. This challenge should push me to finish the project. There are only two simple rules:
