Barbaric September: Just Got A Theme... And It Is About Love!

Barbaric Monthly is my attempt at building/improving a coding project per month so that I can experiment with old and new technologies, learn ad infinitum, remain excited about the craft and nurture my passion for software development. This Barbaric Monthly is about developing a windows phone application and releasing it to market.

Hmm do not know what happens that I keep starting the Barbaric Monthly mid-month… that’s no way of building anything sort of decent. Mental note: Stop #¤%&$# around and focus.

Anyhow, after a brief brainstorming session I decided that something relatively easy, something that I would be able to pull off by the end of the month, but at the same time interesting, so it will be useful and not crapware, so it will give something to the user, would be a quiz game for couples kind-of-app. (That was a long sentence, got to beware of the prose police)

Basically, it would be a phone app to encourage communication between couples with the spicy wrapping of game dynamics. Below you can see some first mocks:

Paper mockups of the different app screens

P.S: It is amazing before I could stop myself I was thinking about social media integration, customizable avatars, profiles in the cloud, a hundred and one cool features that will be impossible to build in time xDDD

P.S.2: New episode of This Developer’s Life after a long, long time, yey!
