Thank You Buzztouch!!!

In August of 2012 I joined Buzztouch with some basic JavaScript knowledge but not much else. Since then it has been a wild ride, learning more about app development and programming than I ever could have imagined! With over 40 plugins in the market and having served as the primary or sole developer on more than 30 apps, I have finally made the jump to a full-time career change into IT. I will now be working full-time as a Mobile Software Developer at Museum of the Bible (http://www.museumofthebible.org). I can't thank Buzztouch and this community enough. David Book has been an incredible support in my learning path, as have been a few others in this community. We'll see what the job brings - so far I know it will be more Android centric than iOS centric - but from what I know I consider something of a dream job! So, truly from the bottom of my heart, I say thank you Buzztouch!

Congratulations Chris! If anyone deserves it, you do. Thanks for all of the support and work you've put into Buzztouch and its members, I think we all have learned a *ton* from you over the past 3 years! Good luck with your new dream job, super stoked for you! David

Sweet! Congratulations Chris! I know you've worked pretty darn hard to get where you are, so it's nice to see a return on your enormous investment! Congrats to your family as well, because they also reap the benefits of your hard earned knowledge while being patient with your quest! I hope this means you'll have more time to spend on the forums; I learn a ton from each word you type. As Mr. David said; If anyone deserves it, you do. Cheers! -- Smug

Well done Chris - that is a remarkable rise from knowing a bit of Javascript. Could you share with us your most valuable tip for improving your ability/knowledge?

Hmm - perseverance. I've committed almost every evening/night of the last 3 years to learning/writing code. Probably averaged 15-20 hours a week on this stuff. It takes an incredibly supportive wife, and a passion to learn more and more every day. I don't say that to be discouraging- only to say programming is hard enough that it must become your passion if you're going to make it your career.
