We’re Supercharging Social Media (March 2022 Update)

We’re back at it again with another monthly update from NTG Developer. These things can actually be tricky to do, but it serves as a great tool to motivate us to make more updates and changes. This month is relatively simple as it extends what we worked on in February. Let’s take a look at what’s up this month.

Updating Social Media

We admit, our usage of Instagram and Twitter has been lacking. Additionally, we just set up the NTG Developer Twitter at the end of last month and we’ve been working on getting it up and running properly. But, we’re now ready to finally keep you all updated with social media.

The Chay Chay Tech Time Shortlink

NTG Developer has made the decision to discontinue the use of the Chay Chay Tech Time short link, a.k.a. cctt.link. We never got enough use out of this link and it was proven to be financially unnecessary. We are terminating the use of the link effective immediately. The domain will not be renewed and NTG Developer, Chay Chay Tech Time, etc. will not be responsible for what it is used for in the future.

That’s about it once again. Check back in April to see what else is new then. We hope that we’ll be able to surprise you!

More Posts, More Ideas, More Content! (February 2022 Update)

February did not bring that many new updates to NTG Developer, but we do have an announcement that we are ready to share with the world.

NTG Developer is on Twitter!

Twitter is one of the leading social media platforms for news and NTG Developer is now part of it. We have already had our technology news site on Twitter for quite some time, but now it is time for NTG Developer to both be available on Instagram and Twitter.

See what I mean? That’s it for February. See you again in March with some more NTG updates then!

We’re back! (January 2022 Update)

We know, we hate these long breaks too. But we’ve finally gotten the NTG Developer FULL Website back up and it’s time to revamp it. Along with this, we have a few more developments that have come and it’s now finally time to go through them and say what we’re doing. Thanks for taking a look at the January Update for NTG Developer.

NTG Developer is now BACK!

We’ve dug out the old website from hibernation and we’re putting it back online. Now, with a new look and fresh branding, we can put a good image with the NTG Developer name. It is both simplistic and feature-full, which makes it a very universal and easy-to-use website. Great for new announcements and features coming down the line. Nothing is final at the time of writing, but we will have more coming soon. Scroll down to see what we’ll be doing to keep this site modern.

We’re Retiring Some Apps

That’s right. It’s something we haven’t wanted to plan on doing, but we figured after planning other projects, we couldn’t keep the resources to develop Android apps, for now. We aren’t strictly retiring everything, but a few of our least popular apps will be treated as discontinued.

Project Mercury

What was once an ambitious project is now only a small idea. Project Mercury was too big a project for our small company to handle and we had to abandon it early. As you might have noticed on our minimal website, we had no branding for it whatsoever because there were no developments. It will be removed from the website effective immediately and hidden from GitHub on January 31, 2022.

Material Calendar

This app originated from being an app to show a calendar, to actually being a calendar, in a way. We were planning on making the app open source so that someone else could take the lead and keep it alive, but we have been unable to locate the application development files. Also, with the lack of a user base, we did not expect anyone to actually want to develop the app any further. The app will remain publicly available on the Google Play Store and Amazon App store for the foreseeable future.

NTG Developer for Android

This app was a client for the NTG Developer website and it was to let people see what we do from their phones. This was an EXTREMELY low-traffic application and was not deemed worth keeping alive. The app will be available to those who have downloaded it in the past on Google Play Store as it will be unpublished to the public on January 31, 2022.

DooDoo View

This is one that is lesser-known as it never made it past a single closed alpha release from 2019. The app was meant to be an offline and open source task list for your phone, but not enough people signed up for the Alpha program to make it worth updating and proceeding with. The app will be unpublished from the Google Play Store on January 31, 2022.

Chay Chay Tech Time GAINS Content

As 2022 is now happening, our technology news site, Chay Chay Tech Time, is now getting new content with new topics as well. Variety is one of the priorities for CCTT and also the amount of content is a big deal. Because of this, there will be more types of content, such as regular posts, videos, and podcasts. All of which can be viewed on the Chay Chay Tech Time website for free.

NTG Developer Forums are Deprecated

After much consideration, we are making the decision to shut down the NTG Developer Forums. After not enough traffic to make it worth maintaining and the limited ability to create a modern forum, we decided that not enough people wanted to use our forums for technical discussion. We understand that forums are not nearly as popular as they used to be and because of this, we will be shutting down our hosted one. That said, we may have other community-reaching tools in the works through popular websites such as Discord, Telegram, and Reddit. Stay tuned to see what we have planned.

Introducing Chaney’s Tech Talk, the Podcast from Chay Chay Tech Time

The Chaney’s Tech Talk Podcast, hosted by Chaney Goldstein, is a podcast that is aimed at keeping people up to date on new technological advancements that have been made in the quickly evolving field of consumer technology. Learn more about the latest products from big technology companies and find out what you should buy with quick breakdowns and summaries of the most popular products.

Partnership with The Pentucket Profile

In an effort to promote Chaney’s Tech Talk on additional media outlets and provide other creators with more content to build their website with, we have partnered with the Pentucket Regional High School school newspaper, The Pentucket Profile. With this partnership, we will be publishing Chaney’s Tech Talk on Chay Chay Tech Time, YouTube, Anchor.FM (Podcasting Apps), and The Pentucket Profile.

Conclusion

That sums up this January 2022 update for NTG Developer. If you have any questions or comments about what we’ve just explained, do not hesitate to ask in the comments as we are able to help with any questions. We appreciate you taking the time to take a look at what we’ve been doing for the past year and hope that you’re excited about everything else we have planned for 2022.

Introducing, Project Mercury! (January 2021 Update)

Thanks for dropping by again and I’m glad that you’ve taken the time to read this announcement. There are some upcoming goals that I want to reach by the end of 2021, so let’s begin talking about our most ambitious project yet, Project Mercury.

Project Mercury is NTG Developer’s Latest Mobile App Concept

Project Mercury was teased back in the summer of 2019, but there was never any clarification as to what Project Mercury would be. We will be hosting our code publically on GitHub because this will be NTG Developer’s first open-source app. All of the files that we have, except for secure assets, will be public on GitHub for anyone’s use. With our extremely small team, we will be working very hard to do our best in order to reach the goal of having an alpha version of the app by December of 2021. This is a difficult goal to reach because the app will take a lot of time to design and make, but we are confident that we can reach this goal at some point, one step at a time.

The NTG Developer Forums are Released!

The public NTG Developer Technology discussion forums are now released for public use! Tapatalk integration for mobile devices is still in the works, but we are almost done figuring that out. Go ahead and register for an account here: https://forum.ntgdeveloper.com/member.php?action=register

Material Calendar Updates are on Hold

In order to devote as much time as possible with Project Mercury, we will be pausing development for Material Calendar and will only be releasing small patches if nessecary. We haven’t updated the app for a little while, so I don’t believe that this should be a problem since the app is working okay for all of our users already, and it is all locally based on your device, not the cloud.

Until next time, my friends, you will get to know the full status of the development of apps and sites made by NTG Developer. Thanks for reading and we can’t wait to announce another big thing next month!

It’s been a long time… (December 2020 Update)

Well, hello everyone! NTG Developer has been going through a lot of different changes lately, involving a complete redesign of the website, logo, and, well, pretty much everything else. We even have a brand new forum hosted directly through this website! While most of our focus has been put towards Chay Chay Tech Time, that isn’t all that we have been doing.

We’ve also been planning more and more for the upcoming android app that we are making, and while we still don’t have a projected release date for testing, we are still making progress, little by little.

Another thing that we have been doing is contributing to the LineageOS project. On Chay Chay Tech Time, over a year ago, I talked about how LineageOS was a good way to breath new life into a Nexus 6P smartphone with old software. While we have not done much yet, we’ve been making sure that the information in the Wiki is up-to-date and we have also been testing ROMs and reporting feedback.

We will also be making a new twitter starting the new year as we believe that it is the best way to keep you all updated with the latest and greatest regarding NTG Developer without writing a post on the website. Don’t worry, we won’t stop doing this. We are now going to do this monthly to give you an idea of our progress. But, we hope that with your support, we can continue development and make a mind-blowing app.

Thanks for sticking with us, and we all wish you a happy holidays season.

Woah! This looks different…
