The making of One Ocean

Initially I simply wanted to learn programming in a way that sustains my motivation and is enjoyable. So i thought to create a Baha’i related app where i can put all my theoretical learning into a meaningful practice. What you can download now on the App Store is basically my degree in software development and design as i could not afford to go to University, google, stack overflow and became my University where i go to study everyday since the last ~2 years.
Here are some quick fun facts about One Ocean – Baha’i Library…

  • The Initial project was Ruhi & Ruha – an interactive memorisation and discover app for the Hidden Words
  • Out of interest in learning about databases it turned into a full blown digital Baha’i Library with a focus on connecting writings to virtues
  • The Initial name for this app was PERL – Personal Reference Library. This is in secret still the name for my internal project, i could not use it because it is phonetically difficult and can be confused with PERL the programming language…
  • One Ocean came out as a tribute to the Ocean library (which was at the time of my release discontinued and not downloadable ) and the One indicates its decentralised and personal approach. Every user has One Ocean in their pocket and every category is a drop and every quotation is a droplet.
  • I hope to one day be in the position to invest time and energy into cleaning up my code, writing a blog where i step by step describe how to create One Ocean and with that create a free online educational course for Baha’i friends
  • One Ocean should really become open source and be given to the world wide Baha’i community to make it their own. This is my final goal.

How does One Ocean compare to the vision i have for it?
