This Week in Titanium Mobile Development: 3 Oct 2011

This is all the Titanium Mobile development news I’ve gathered from the Twittersphere and Interwebs for the past week.

News

Amazon announced it’s Kindle tablet – the Kindle ‘Fire’. I know many Appcelerator devs would love to be developing apps for it. Appcelerator posted their position on Titanium and the Kindle Fire on their website. Summary: support coming ASAP.

Appcelerator also announced a competition to write a Twitter library. You can win a iPad 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab, or Nook Color. It is due on Oct 13th, so check out the details.

Videos of the presentations from Codestrong have started going up on the Appcelerator developer blog. The are already a couple that you have to watch. (memory leaks, anyone?)

Speaking of Codestrong, Xavier Lacot shared his experience of speaking at CodeStrong over at his blog. Worth a read (and just makes me regret not going even more!)

In Spain and want a hackathon? Look no further.

Tips

The usual suspects have been buzy producing more great content:

Matt Apperson shared a Customized TabBar for iOS in pure JS. Noice!

Aaron Saunders gave a gist on parsing a RSS Feed from YouTube.

Kevin Whinnery switches to the Mac desktop this week in his Forging Titanium series.

Tony Lukasavage gives a tutorial on Admob for Android and Sharing Project Assets with Android Intents. Great to see Tony keeping up the great Android work!

pinehead.tv continues it’s video tutorial series with Handling Remote Data with HTTPClient and MySQL (part 1)

Liz Meyers shared perhaps the best deck I have ever seen on her presentation From Zero to App-Super-Hero with Titanium. Awesome work Liz!
