At Grio, we use EC2 to power almost all of our server needs. Amazon hosting provides a convenient means of housing a web server and database server, a wiki, and our client development environment. It’s a cost efficient solution for companies like ours, in that we can avoid the hassle or purchasing and maintaining hardware. The strategy allows us to add servers only when we need them and remove them when they are no longer needed. Since Amazon’s pricing structure is based on the duration of server’s up-time, we want to make sure that we only use a server when necessary.
I was recently tasked with writing a profanity filter for the chat module of an AIR application. I did some research and alas, there were no Flex examples to be found. I thought I’d share my implementation with you.
The filter needed to replace naughty words with asterisks: so profanities such as ‘f— you’ would appear as ‘**** you’. The filter also required the ability to use localized word ‘blacklists’.
Recently, we submitted our new iPhone application to Apple and it is currently under review. It has been approved and is available at iTunes store. It’s called KillerDeals. It’s a lifestyle application targeted at users who are either currently fans of sites like Steepandcheap.com and Tramdock.com or new users who are looking for amazing retail deals on outdoor clothing and equipment.
KillerDeals gives you access to 4 of the hottest sources for outdoor gear on the web in the one convenient application. Now you can check the latest deals anytime, anywhere.
It’s easy to add sounds to a Flex/Air application. Here we’ll see how to add whirrs, chirps, and bloops to your application’s button clicks and mouseovers. We’ll also see how to use Air’s EncryptedLocalStore to add mute and volume controls.
The first step is to create a sound manager for playing the sounds. The sound manager will make it possible to centrally apply user preferences like volume to all application sounds.
