A little over a year ago I decided that I wanted to become an iOS developer. Today it's official, my first app is available in the App Store and it's called AeroPress Timer. There are a lot of things that I have learned along the way that have helped me to become a better developer and person. And I have a lot of people to thank for their help.

First of all, I want to thank my wife Mollie. She has always believed in me and given the encouragement and support that I have needed to push through diffculty and disappointment. Her excitement and passion in her own career challenged me to work hard and take great pride in my work. Thank you babe, I love you.

Secondly, I want to thank Zane for encouraging me to take the dive into programming and being a willing and patient teacher. Zane is the Co-Founder of Beloved Robot and is about to begin development on our next app. And trust me, it's going to be great.

Next I would like to thank Matt for creating our beautiful icon. I couldn't have asked for a more fitting design and we think it is stunning. Matt has also been a great resource throughout the development process. Matt pushed me to design and develop a beautiful, and most of all, functional app. He also assisted in hours of AeroPress recipe testing. You can find Matt here, and here. And you should hire him.

A big thanks for Greg to producing the video that you just watched (stop and go watch it again, I'll wait). Greg was determined to make an awesome video that showcased the app beautifully and made you want to drink some delicious AeroPress coffee. Let's just say we drank a lot of Octane coffee during that shoot. You can see some of Greg's other work here and you can contact him here. Hire him also!

Last but not least I want to thank Chris for doing all of the copy editing for the app and the website. If you find a typo it's his fault. Chris has always been a better friend than I deserve and he played a big roll in the app that you are using today. Thanks Chris.

Most of all I hope that you enjoy AeroPress Timer. This is by no means the end. We are already hard at work on new features that are soon to come. Let us know what you think of AeroPress Timer and I hope you enjoy every cup.
