Looking back upon the last year, I've had some amazing opportunities given to me, which have brought major challenges and changes to my life.
May: Invited by Apple to attend Cocoa Camp 2012.
July: Started Sunya as part of TechEx Wanganui. With the help of several local council employees and others, Sunya was begun and has been growing since. Without their support and help, it wouldn't exist.
August: Attended Cocoa Camp 2012 at Apple Headquarters in Cupertino. For me this was the highlight of my year, first time out of the North Island of New Zealand, first time on a plane and similar experiences just made it awesome. Along with that, the people I met during Cocoa Camp made it into a long lasting memory and I hope I can stay in contact with them.
Throughout the year, I've launched and developed several applications which were special in themselves.
Another particular highlight relating to the launch of Stash was having the site shared by Federico Vittici of MacStories. Watching the response just related to his single tweet was extraordinary and I want to thank him for that.

As for 2013, I am waiting to see if it can beat 2012 and I am sure it will.
During 2013, I am hoping to continue working under Sunya building great apps for clients (side note: We're looking for clients now if you know anyone who needs an app), along with developing more of my own apps and projects.
Here's to the New Year and what it will bring.
