[Video] Watch 6 Hours of Painstaking App Development Squeezed Into 1 Minute and 30 Seconds

Authored by: Steven Blum — Jul 20, 2011

For some reason, whenever I imagine app development, I picture 3D models, storyboards and computer animations. The truth is a little bit less romantic...but no less inspiring to watch. 

In this video, created by app developer Hunter Davis, the entire programming process is sped up to hyperspeed and set to Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebee.” 6 hours of programming is condensed into less than 2 minutes. 

On his blog, Davis explains what you're seeing:

This unedited view includes my development (and publishing) process with warts and all. I design graphics, code around bugs and limitations, research problems on stack exchange, make big mistakes and re-do simple functions etc. ...I use no custom software, nor commercial software other than the cursed OS that came on my laptop.

The final result? A puzzle app.
