Hard to believe that it’s been exactly one year since the first teen developer interview was published. In the year since, we’ve published 23 interviews! Although long-time readers may remember that we technically published 24 but had to retract one. This means there’s been an average of a new interview every 16 days!
For those who never really knew what these were, when I joined the Cool Smartphone team I set out to interview teen developers so that word of their projects would get out and they’d have a bit of a stage to show themselves off on! Each interview consisted of me asking the developer about themselves, their projects, and their experiences developing for the mobile and web. We’d also include photos of their workspaces, because who doesn’t love looking at photos of desks, right?
Except Tyler, that is. Thanks for the photo of the cave buddy. ;-)
So what’s the point of this anniversary post? If you caught our last interview with Peter you’ll have noticed I mentioned that I’d publish a collection of tutorials online so that you too can get started in the amazing world of developing! Here’s a list of all our interviews to date before we get to the tutorials.
