New HTTP status code 451

Finally new HTTP status code 451 was approved by IETF. RFC will be shortly delivered.

I’m wondering who can response this code. Because when user accessed the page, the censored document will be correctly passed to user, it means censorship organization or person avoids to let user know fact that be censored. Internet Provider or some service provider can response the code without presser from anyone. It must be rare case to notice the fact.

According to some internet article about this, there were so many type of the opinion for agree or disagree.  Code space is limited, it’s good to collect the fact that there are some censorship on internet and so on.

In near future, statistic report about this will be revealed by lab and internet research company. I’m looking forward to see the result.

Good reference for beginner of iOS App developer

From beginning of this year, I have been planning to develop iOS App to learn Swift and Xcode development. As fast step, started with learning some UI design concept for iOS and making mock. There are many document or guideline offered by Apple.  And Adobe provides many tool to make mock for Smartphone Apple. 

I would like to recommend some documents and services for the beginner of developer like me. and if i will find more good one, let me update here or post new one.

What is strength of Apple?

I’m learning application development for iOS device with swift. But it’s not only development language. Apple strongly requires developer to make sure great User experience. To do so, there are many guidelines for UI design and Application behavior. The website for iOS developer has a lot of docs and video. So I’m reading one by one to understand their concept. While doing this, it makes me recognize as strength of Apple. This is one of video contents recoded in WWDC2015. I have just watched it.

Have a nice weekend!

Apple Philosophy

ちょっとだけ時間的に余裕があるので、もうだいぶ世の中的に流行も落ち着きつつある、iOS Appを作ってみようかと思って、Objective-Cを書いてみている。ただ、言語そのものは、書き方の規則を覚えてしまえば、基本的にオブジェクト指向なのでそこまで抵抗感はない。XCode使いながらUIもかねて作っていく形がベースなので、どことなくFlashっぽい気もするけど、FlashよりもiPhoneなどのスマートデバイス独特の操作に関する世界観についてまだ肌感覚がなく、闇が深い感じがしているぐらいだろうか。


Designing Intuitive User Experiences

この上記にリンクを貼ったWWDC2014のセッションを見ていて、非常にそういった世界観を感じることができる。Swipe to deleteという一つの事例をあげながら、Convention(習慣)を壊さないようにアプリを作っていくべきだということが語られている。UIやインタラクティブなものを作れるツールとして企業が提供していたものはAdobe Flashが最も思い浮かぶ。しかし、Adobeについては多くのクリエイタを抱えながらも、そういった指南までしていた記憶があまりない。Maxというイベントでも基本的にはツール、機能紹介で、たまにクリエイティブ関係者のひとが操作性について語ることがあったぐらいだろうか。

こういった地道な活動をしながらも、結局は作る開発者や企画者のさじ加減にゆだねられているし、またConvention自体が存在しない機能もありえる。セッションもこれだけに限らずまだたくさんあるようなので言語的な部分以外にも学ぶことは非常に多いけど、Apple Philosophy自体がどこまで考えられたものなのかも同時に知ることが出来るので、一度ぐらいはちゃんと触れた方がいいかなと感じる。その手の書物を読んでしまう方が知識としては早く手に入れられるが、身を以て体感するにはこれが一番よさそうだ。
