Hey,
I wanted to share this story today with you as it is a very special milestone in my career as a developer.
Recently (say, about a half year ago) I got the chance to start working with a rock band here in Austria. They are no newbies, having already 5 albums produced, are performing live really great, they played on the "Donauinselfest" in Vienna, a Rock Festival with more than a million visitors in only two days; they have their own studio and make really great music.
It happened that I know their lead guitarist personally but I didn't know that he was a musician, he was never bragging around or behaved as he was "someone special". One day of course while we were talking, we had the point where he told me, what he was doing in the evening ... Smile | :) And so one thing led to the other...
My daughter and I joined them in their studio, she even could sing a duet with the lead voice of the band (I have the video here... an amazing experience for a 14-year-old-teenager girl!)

And during a break that evening we talked a bit all together, I told them that I am a mobile developer and so I got the chance to create their App! They wanted an official content App, containing their albums, songs, lyrics, embedded youtube videos from their channel, live concerts, biographys, a contact option, and..and..and.

Today we are only a few weeks away from the launch party (they play a concert just to introduce the app to the world!) and as we had some good chats the last days, doing the roadmap for the launch, finalizing the content in the app and all that stuff, I am getting really excited by now Smile | :)

I must say, after almost 30 years as a developer, the last months working with those guys was something new and amazing for me! This is gonna be a very special app for me as it really feels, that I "helped" somebody, that I could do things someone really needs.
While some xml-layouts and fancy animations here and there are nothing very special to ME, they earned a lot of "ooohhh's" and "aaaah's" from the band. For them, this is something "yeaaaah baby!" Big Grin | :-D

This project just makes me feel sooo good. Something I missed (or lost) during the years, doing one project after the other...
This one is special. I love it. And thats why I share it with you!

Thanks for reading!
Cheers, Mike
And: ROCK ON!
