"Wait. You made Goalie?"

Brian GilhamEssays

Back in April, I was fortunate to attend the inaugural NSNorth. The conference was amazing, of course. But the real benefit of any conference comes from time spent with fellow attendees.

The first night, I found myself in conversation with Gordon Fontenot. We were discussing iOS development and, inevitably, I mentioned Goalie. Much to my surprise, he was already familiar with it.

“Wait. You made Goalie?”

Without another word, he smiled and shook my hand. Later, I was able to gush about Liftoff and shake his.

If that isn’t just the best damn reason in the world to continue making software, I don’t know what is.
