What is Android SDK?

Android provides a rich application framework that allows you to build innovative apps and games for mobile devices in a Java language environment.

What is Cocoa Touch (iOS)?

The Cocoa Touch layer contains key frameworks for building iOS apps. These frameworks define the appearance of your app. They also provide the basic app infrastructure and support for key technologies such as multitasking, touch-based input, push notifications, and many high-level system services.

What is Escher?

A web server for 2016. Escher's built-in web server allows you to create interactive UIs with very little code. It takes care of messaging between Julia and the browser under-the-hood. It can also hot-load code: you can see your UI evolve as you save your changes to it.

            So we very, very early on, we were iOS only, then we thought, well we’re missing out on half of the market. We need to add Android. So we had a friend of ours start working on the Android app, and I had to build the API for him, but I was having a really hard time doing that because I didn’t know what he needed exactly, so I built the first version of the web store over the weekend because I wanted to have a client to consume myself for the API I was building.

            The Android SDK is the key-component of all Android-based development and had to be included in this stack for sure. We work with the SDK through IntelliJ IDEA and the command-line.
