Yesterday I got my 8-year anniversary badge - how cool!
Thinking back over the last 8 years, I'm so thankful I found GameSalad and how it's shaped my life. It not only allowed me to follow my dreams of creating games that hundreds of thousands of people would play, but it also spurred my interest in Computer Science and programming in general which ultimately led me to land a senior web development position.
Since June of 2011, I've released several original titles, made games for literally hundreds of clients and even got to work for GameSalad. And now, while I don't post as often on the forums, I am active most days reading and just lurking behind-the-scenes.
I've had the time of my life getting to know many of you; joking around and seeing all of the cool projects you've been working on. I’ve seen a lot of people come and go, but I’m thankful for those that have stuck around and have made this community a better place.
Thanks for a wonderful 8 years - it's been a blast!
