The Beginning of AML
I spent four days last week picking up a working knowledge of Android development, and out of that effort came the first bits of what I have called Application Markup Language. It isn’t meant to (or going to) replace the current method of developing mobile apps entirely, but it will fill a niche, especially as it becomes more feature-complete.
I shared a blog post about what I came up with on D-Zone, and received a tremendous response—over 800 visits in one day. That may not seem like much to some of you, but my blog usually gets perhaps 20 hits on a good day. A 4,000% increase in traffic really told me something: there’s a definite interest in this project. The comments I got on that blog post were helpful and provided a few excellent ideas.
So, I registered a domain name, created the amlcode project on on Google Code, created a Roadmap page to show where we’ve come from and what’s next on the development list. Check out the home page for a description of what exactly AML is and does, then look at the Examples page, or the downloads page on the Google Code repository.
