Another Turn: Beginning Android Programming
Two years ago, I started to learn iOS programming on the same desk and in the same chair I am writing this post.
The last two years have been incredible.
I started hacking away and with the guidance of my friend, Steve and Big Nerd Ranch, within one month I released two apps to the AppStore and within four months I had my first paying, freelance gig. I built a few other apps for some clients and ended up getting steady work at LabZero, where I got to work with some great folks and Fortune 500 companies.
Three months ago, I started at Dropbox.
I work with the Android team to figure out how users are using our app to make it a delight.
This has been quite the transition in many ways (probably should be another blog post) and I’m looking forward to this new challenge.
Although I don’t necessarily need to know how to make an Android app, I want to.
So, here’s to Android and another turn in my programming journey.
