I am not a programmer nor will I ever be one. I realized this when I was in college taking Computer Science classes at Poly. I just do not have the programmer mentality that my friends might have. Seriously, programming is hard. It requires a lot of thinking and logic. I am not saying that I do not have the ability to program but I do not prefer doing it. What I am pretty good at is a hack/slash approach to programming. I can take bits here and there and put them together (somewhat).
I don’t know what inspired me to make this app. I guess it is probably because I had a Windows Phone at the time and there were no good alternate side parking apps (iOS and Android included). I took probably 3 months of taking bits and hacking them together to make my first Windows Phone 8 app. The app is called NYCASP. It is basically an app that tells you whether alternate side parking is suspended or not in NYC. It was a great learning experience.
