It’s “news” this month, not news.

Those of you who have connected with me on Facebook or who follow me on Twitter are likely aware of my news, however this isn’t all of you and I know that some of my readers abhor both social sites, so I wanted to make a little post to bring everyone up to speed.

The big news for me is that I’m going to go and see Ansca in October!

This is something I’ve wanted to do for quite some time but was only recently made possible due to, well, I suppose a lot of good luck and good will.

Now, a lot of people have asked me if I’m moving there; to avoid this being brought up time and time again (I don’t mind, I’m just trying to save time ;)) I am not moving anywhere. I wish I was, but sadly moving to America is not something a person can do without a whole lot of things – or a huge pile of money. (I do not currently have a huge pile of money.)

So, now that is out of the way – I’ll be gone for just over two weeks. October 10th until around the 24th, plus travel time and the fact I’ll probably want to sleep all day once home.

In that time I’d request you don’t email me trying to book a training session, or to hire for me any other work – I will be doing my best to respond to everyone however if I were to get as many emails as I do currently that just wouldn’t be possible.

This is hugely exciting for me – not least because in the states you have something called “affordable food“.

This may seem an odd thing to get excited about, but come on! You guys can get a decent meal there for what I pay for a small pack of cheese here!

Of course, all gluttony aside, the huge thrill of this is getting to meet everyone at Ansca in person – I’d run off a list of names but out of fear of forgetting anyone, I wont.

I’ve been using Corona for almost a year now and every day I love it more.

Getting to actually meet the creators and the staff that work so hard to improve on this wonderful SDK we all love so much will be just awesome – to be honest it doesn’t even seem real yet.

On an entirely unrelated note, has anyone here ever lived in a vent? How’s the WiFi in those things?*

Peach Pellen :)

*I am not planning on moving into Ansca’s vents, such a suggestion is preposterous and absurd. I’d be far more likely to settle at Carlos’ desk and simply introduce myself as him to everyone, then act offended if anyone questioned me, accusing them of being sexist rather than having keen observational skills.

  1. Thanks Joanne, I certainly will, on both counts.

    It’s awesome you went so well with your app and I appreciate your kind words :)

    …. I’m not making any promises about the vents.

  2. Wow. That is some news.
    I hope you enjoy yourself and make sure to let Carlos know that Corona has opened up some peoples lives.
    I went from never using a Macbook (or any Apple device) to uploading an App in 47 days.
    I have to say that without your help (and Ricardos) and of course CORONA, I would still be sitting here trying to understand xcode.

    Be safe and steer clear of the vents.

  3. Plenty of newsiness in this post here.
