Thanks for all of the wonderful support everyone gave the launch of iOS Dev Jobs last week. It was so lovely to see such a positive reaction from both the developer community, and the companies that are hiring. There are now 42 jobs listed there, up from 28 last week. What a great start to a new project. Thank you.

I didn't mention it last week, but that launch also marked a personal milestone for me. Just over a year ago, I mentioned that I was going out on my own as an independent developer again. I had a pretty solid plan of what I was going to do, but almost immediately a very interesting freelance contract presented itself and I wanted to take it. That contract then got extended, but eventually came to an end about two weeks ago. As of right now, I'm not taking any other long term contract work and I'm happy to say I'm independent again. iOS Dev Jobs was the first of a few new projects I have planned. 🎉

What I'm looking forward to most though is getting back to making my own iOS apps again. I've nothing to announce yet on that front, but I can promise I won't be as quiet in this coming year about what I'm working on as I have been in the past year! 📣
