Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
Being a 3D game developer, I have almost zero-knowledge in server-side programming and I am trying to write an app that does the below:
1. Take a photo from my iphone, save it to a file. 2. Send the file to some server 3. 3D-lize the image file received, or do other bit-wise transformations with it. 4. Fetch the processed file from the server.
I know many apps does this already and would like to know what technologies are used behind the scenes.
What I have tried so far:
1. Setup an app on Google app engine so that I can use http post methods to upload the file from the iPhone (ASIHTTPRequest used here). Java and Python tried. 2. Files are uploaded fine, but I have no idea what to do next as I heard you the file system on the app engine is read-only :eek:
Ain't too sure if I am on the right track. Perhaps I should try other technologies such as PHP? But then, where would I host this? How would I actually do manipulations to my files uploaded.
