What do you guys think of Using parse.com as a mobile backend
most of you who use parse would be using it for Push Notifications and not as a whole platform
For people who have used Parse Core ( https://www.parse.com/products ) what is you opinion about that.
I have heard issues of
1. scaling
2. downtime
3. background jobs failing to start/starting late
4. very less query rate
5. not startup friendly Pricing

G for Google.com
but Google just doesn’t want to be only google, it wants to be A to Z and hence it’s reorganising itself to be Alphabet = https://abc.xyz/

which will be a set of companies and Google will be a part of it led by the new CEO Sundar Pichai ( Indian Origin )

we are living in interesting times :)

As Sergey and I wrote in the original founders letter 11 years ago, “Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one.” As part of that, we also said that you could expect us to make “smaller bets in areas that might seem very speculative or even strange when compared to our curr…

As Bangalore Startups has always taken a fair stand on everything.I am posting this video which i found a good and healthy discussion on #NetNeutrality debate. i believe this will clear some more doubts about what the fuss is about

Flipkart steps back. A Major Customer off the Airtel Zero partners LIst
this is 1st of series of events which will make sure that #NEtNeutrality in India stays at it should to be
but this doesn’t mean we stop sending emails to TRAI
we should continue to make our voice heard till we don’t get a suitable law passed from TRAI in favour of #NetNeutrality
keep sending email to advqos@trai.gov.in and a copy netneutralityindia16@gmail.com or simply use http://www.savetheinternet.in

Airtel Zero is *almost* violating net neutrality and we welcome Flipkart's decision to pull out of the program (ofcourse, we hope that their competitors do not latch up to the opportunity)

Hi All,

if anybody has opened twitter today you can see that #WhoppersInPune is trending. i am wondering why would many people be so excited that a burger chain is opening in their city
1. how many tweets/retweets do you need make your #hashtag trend, any metrics for this ?
2. which social media marketing companies provide this as a service ?
3. what are the long term/short term advantages/repercussion of this typoe of a social media gig ?
4. does this lead to real conversions/downloads/purchases/signups ?

i would like to hear/discuss this from someone/company who has done it in the past in a way which sounds more explanatory than promotional

thanks

All legal experts in Copyright and Patent Filing please clear my doubt

Patent filing process takes its own course of time till then can getting a copyright help me in protecting an Application/Software Feature/piece of code

Rahul Aswani

Suppose you have made a tech product and you are doing marketing/paying server bills/getting a website/landing page built and till now you haven’t formally registered a company

later when you raise some money
first of all can you ?
and if yes then how can you show the expenditure done for your startup from your(founder’s ) account/credit card as your’s startup’s expenditure

may be i have not put it across correctly but i want to know how to show the prefunding, pre company incorporation expenditure as apart of startup expenditure

Hi all,
this is for #Entrepreneurs #mentors #investors

Is it a right thing to do to call your startup as

linked in for this
Whatsapp for that
Uber for that

I do get the point that its easy to relate to but

What i am trying to say is, ia it good to take someone elses support to pitch in your startup
I don’t like this personally

i feel one should be able to explain his startup without making a reference

What’s the communities view on this ?

Can anyone tell me how to suppress the call screen of an android phone

I am working on some feature which needs this

the user opens my app and that initiates an auto call to an ivr number and the call is immediately picked up by the ivr. the user doesn’t need to say/speak anything ( not required )
then i take some input from the user say a number using MY APP’s Keyboard and still the call is in the background

SO BASICALLY I WANT TO SUPPRESS THE CALL ACTIVITY O ANDROID OS FROM COMING ON TOP OF THE SCREEN

i couldn’t get a better image on he internet :D

#help #Android #iOS #Swift #Xammrin
Hi Friends,

i am trying to make a mobile solution for a problem.
i would be going Android first but i cannot ignore iOS

[ problem ] i am trying to figure out how i can write single piece of code and make native apps for both platforms

while finding a solution to this i found that i can use swift ( Apple’s new language ) to write code which i can then convert into java and make an android app

https://arctouch.com/2014/10/swift-make-android-app/

i also found ways to code in java for iOS using http://www.robovm.com/develop/documentation/

anybody doing this ? or
how are you optimising code for Android and iOS both ? or
any other suggestion i don’t mind going the hybrid way until the UI/UX is not impacted

Hi all

i recently purchased a 13 macbook pro mid 2012 with 4 GB RAM ( 2 slots of 2 GB)
to enhances the performance
i am putting in a transcend/crosair/crucial 8 GB RAM in 1 slot.
However i came to know that i should only put similar RAMs in both the slots. like 2, 4 or 8 in both the slots otherwise the processor will work in accordance with the lower RAM speed

can someone who has upgraded the RAM of macbook ( preferably mid 2012 ) guide me on this

Thank you
