Yet Another Hello World

Hey folks! I'm Aaron Sky, and I'm an iOS developer based in Boston.

This introductory post is going to be pretty short. I'm still trying to figure out what I want this blog to be about, outside of being the new home and fifth iteration of my personal blog and portfolio site. As a result of this different direction, I've decided not to carry over any of the posts from the last version of my blog.

Here are some quick facts about me:

  • I've been programming since 2010, and I started considering myself as a developer when I released multiple apps on the Windows Store back in 2013.
  • My first programming language was Objective-C, which in retrospect probably wasn't the best idea in 2010.
  • I graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2016 with a BS in Game Design and Development.
  • Back in 2015 I completed an eight month internship at Xamarin as a QA engineer, which stands a personal point of pride on my resume.
  • I currently work at Wayfair doing iOS development.
  • My favorite place in Boston is the Public Garden, and my favorite place in Greater Boston is Amory Park.
  • I have been living with Crohn's Disease since 1998 and know a thing or two about coping with chronic illness.
  • My favorite video game is Mother 3 for the Game Boy Advance, and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is probably my second. Things get fuzzy in my top 5 and even fuzzier outside of that.

Anyway, I think that's going to do it for the first entry of this blog. Maybe I'll do programming tutorials; maybe I'll do something else. We'll see.
