Wow! Last night I won Best Canadian Developer (which of course really translates to Best Canadian Flash Developer) at the FitC awards show – quite an honour (eh?). The award is supercool – an old-school can opener embedded in a block of clear lucite. I’ll add a picture of it here after I get back home.
I’d really like to thank my fiance Bobi for putting up with my nerdy Flash obsessions, and a fair amount of neglect over the past few years. I’d also like to thank everyone that’s contributed to this fantastic industry – it’s pretty cool to have a job that you actually look forwards to each day (well… most days), and one where you can meet up with so many great people at these events.
I’d also like to (belatedly) thank my amazing team at gskinner.com, their great work has let me focus more of my time on the community, and on pushing the boundaries of the technology with experiments and cutting-edge corporate projects. I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without them. Thanks guys!
