I'm very excited to announce that I have in my possession an offer from Apple to fill the position of Application Framework Evangelist. And I'm even more excited to say that I'm going to accept it. It has been a crazy ride getting here, but I'm really glad to have arrived.
Now for the why. Why would I go from Indie to working for the Man? Well in this case the Man is Apple, and I think we can all see the appeal there :) But seriously the thing I really enjoy doing is helping people build stuff for the Mac and iPhone. My favorite Amazon review is 0 to iPhone App in 6 months. I love that review because that person went from nothing to app, that one review made the book worth writing. Not saying the $ wasn't good too, but the real motivator is helping people. I love it.
As I thought about this job it is helping people x10. I don't just get to help the people that follow me on twitter or that buy the book or post to the forum but I get to help everyone doing Mac and iPhone stuff. And that totally rocks!
I feel like there should be a pithy movie quote or song lyric here, all that comes to mind is 'A dweeam wiffin a dweeam' and 'Heading out to San Francisco'. If more come to mind I'll be sure and post them :)
My start date is Feb 15, can't wait!
