    I find Icenium extremely interesting.  Like the white paper said, "a game changer." 

    How is the application Life Cycle handled with Icenium?  More specifically, how do teams of developers interact with the same code base?  Are there different environements (e.g. dev, test prod)?  How do you deploy to different environments?

    thanks in advance,
    Gene.

    Hi Gene,

    Thanks for your kind words about Icenium. Regarding your questions they are right on spot. If you look at all the products that Telerik is building you will definitely find some that will fulfill the Application Life Cycle picture. We will work through the course of next year to have a more complete story in Icenium

    About your question for how teams collaborate in Icenium - we do support Git version control and the experience is similar to the one found in modern IDEs like VS and Eclipse. We do have exclusive support for GitHub, but we do support the standard Git protocol so any git repository is supported. We have some ideas how to further extend this, but there is nothing specific I can share with you at this point in time.

    Regarding your question for different environments this is also an area we have thought about. We have not done anything specific to enable it, but it is definitely something that we are going to tackle in the future.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for the response Stefan.  I can appreciate that this is a new product, but some general info on how to deploy this to the end user would be helpful sooner rather than later.

    Many thanks,
    Gene

    Hello Gene,

    There are a couple of ways you can distribute your application to users. The most common one is the use the Apple's AppStore or Google Play! Market to distribute your application. You can follow our tutorials on how to do so here

    The other way is to download the application binary file and host it somewhere, so that other users can download it. This can be a little trickier for iOS and you could use ad-hoc provision. You can consult with our code-signing glossary.

    The easiest way for iOS to test drive you application is to use Icenium Ion. Everyone of your tester (clients) can install the Ion app and then scan the QR code of your application to load it in Ion. You can find more information about Ion here.
