My first attempt at creating an APP.

Looks like iBuildApp does not support Bluetooth streams. PhoneGap does however. PhoneGap is a popular cross-platform builder but is much more developer-oriented than iBuildApp. I’ve played around with PhoneGap and it’s fairly easy as a builder.

Looks like HTML5 is out unless you want a specialized middle layer. If I was playing around, I’d build an Arduino board to read the Bluetooth data and act as a simple server. Then any smartphone browser could connect to the Arduino server device to pull the data. If that worked, I’d build the obdii reader onto the Arduino as well and sell it as transportation industry device that utilizes any smartphone to read the vehicle diagnostics and track in real time. Fun!

Hi Gary,

Have you worked with OBDII devices before to tie into vehicle diagnostics. A Bluetooth obdii reader can transmit some or all the data you need to your smartphone (example –

Maybe you already have something that will tie into the vehicle data? Have you ever tried “Torque” for iPhone and android? It gives you a lot of real time car info. Both iOS and android can read the Bluetooth stream so it’s likely you can upload data almost live from your smartphone to a server for remote viewing. I don’t think you can read the BT stream with HTML5 but I’ll look around.

I have a client, who needs a mobile device very much like Fedex. The only major difference being that the application is for monitoring a vehicles sensors ( Gas, current mileage, tire pressure, last oil change, temperature, gps location) real time. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I got the response from …. from you. I will try to use the tools you have given me ibuildapps and see if I can do it.

Thank you

Hi Gary,

…., my brother, mentioned you might need some help with an application you have in mind. In many cases I am not the guy who will do the actual application development. I can, however, help determine a development path for your idea.

Over the last couple years I’ve found that many requested apps (especially business apps) are more effective when built using HTML5, which is also faster and less expensive in most cases. Functional prototypes and proof of concept ideas are especially well-suited for HTML5.

Any ideas you share with me are treated as business confidential. Let me know if I can help.

Ideas of what to have ready for when applying for a job

On a daily basis I perform the following VMware checks;
We have 8 Vcenters with hundreds of VM’s with more than 1PB of combined Datastore storage.
Check the health of all Hosts and VM’s in vCenter.
Check for any resource issues like Memory, Disk and Network IO.
Check the Datastore space, are any LUNS low on space.
Check if Vmware tools are up to date on all VM’s.
Check if there are any VM’s that need disk consolidation.
If requested perform partial or full recovery of any VM’s using the Vcenter NetBackup Plugin.

Since 2010
I have installed VMware vsphere ESXI 4.5 on more than 20 hosts, managed Vcenter environments from 4.5 to currently 6.7.
I am familiar with and have performed a Vmotion move of a VM to another datastore via a distributed file system.
