Me in RMIT and Vietnamese Newspaper

You can read the Vietnamese version here



Many software engineers and IT professionals dream of developing a ‘killer App’ for popular products like the iPhone, which will make them rich. Other people dream of one day having a book published.


Not many achieve either – and even fewer do so in their early 20s. But Vo Duy Khang (formerly student 3184092), an alumnus of RMIT Vietnam’s Bachelor of Information Technology program, has hit the jackpot with success in both of these areas – and now has the makings of a successful business spanning both Vietnam and Australia.


Khang graduated from RMIT Vietnam in November 2010 and travelled to Adelaide, Australia, where he is now completing a Master of Information Technology with Carnegie Mellon University, under a full scholarship.


With the benefit of the scholarship, Khang has been freed up to apply his own financial resources fully to get a small business off the ground while he also continues his studies.


His hard work and talent have been recognised by US publisher Apress, which has just decided to publish a book by Khang on how to build better iPhone applications. Khang’s book, Pro iOS Apps Performance Optimization, fills a need in the market for more practical guidance in this booming area of consumer technology.


Khang’s creativity and expertise has also been applied to a new business start-up in this field which already has five people on staff in Australia. Khang has been visiting Vietnam in the past month seeking further talent from Vietnam to join his operation.


Almost all his development team to date are RMIT students or graduates.


“They speak English well, and they all have a good understanding of what is needed,” Khang says.


According to Khang, the basis of a good user experience of any iPhone or iPad App is good performance. There is enormous potential in helping social networking applications such as Facebook to provide a better user experience by moving data in a quicker and smarter way over the net.


Apress has been impressed by his thinking in this area, as shown on his own website and as shared amongst the online community overseas.


One of Khang’s mentors has been Barend Scholtus, Academic Services Manager for the Bachelor of IT program, and the two continue to discuss shared interests regularly.


“We hope – in fact we are pretty sure – that Khang’s learning experiences at RMIT Vietnam have made contributions to his achievements to date, and we hope the best is yet to come.”

Today’s iPhone and iPad apps developers are often running into the need to refine, improve and optimize their apps performances. As more complex apps can be created, it is even more important for developers to deal with this critical issue.

Pro iOS Apps Performance Tuning and Optimization covers many common but difficult problems when tuning and optimizing performance for iPhone and iPad apps and how to resolve these problems efficiently. This book gives you the following:

  • Basic knowledge on common problems in iPhone apps
  • Advanced knowledge over data structure, algorithms, multithreading, and network data in iPhone apps
  • Comparison with problems and solutions for Android and Windows Phone apps

After reading this must-have book, you’ll be ready to make the most of the processing power of the iPhone with your apps performance optimization know-how.

 

What you’ll learn

  • Benchmark your apps using emulators and real device tests
  • Increase and optimize UITableView performance in your iOS apps
  • Increase your app performance using image and data caching techniques
  • Tune your apps using algorithms and data structures
  • Improve your parallel data access using multithreading techniques
  • Optimize memory usage for increased battery life and better apps performance
  • Use native C code to address memory leaks or EXEC_BAD_ACCESS

My book: Community and Opportunities


My iPhone Book

My iPhone Book

I am happy to announce that I encountered a book contract with Apress to write about iphone development. This will be a great opportunity and new experience for me when I have never written a real book before.

That is just part of the main content of this blog, I want to share my own thought over community support (as I already said at this blog post about Community Support) and how it would help me to reach this kind of opportunities. An Apress staff contacted me after he read my blog series about iphone development. This helps me to restate again that if you do good thing for other people, chance will come back. Real chance, real value, not an artificial reputation.

Supporting community and make lives better is my personal long-term goal as well as my company’s long-term goal.
