On Being an Ansca Staff Member
As many of you may have already noticed due to the orange “Ansca Staff” badge recently attached to all of my forum posts, I’m officially a member of the Ansca staff—it’s no secret.
The main reason I’m mentioning it here is because there’s a large amount of content on my blog that is very pro-Corona, and many of you have used the content on my website (my experiences, opinions, etc.) as a basis for making your own decision to subscribe.
Now, being on the Ansca staff and all, I can see where you might think the information here could be heavily biased—for obvious reasons.
Well, I’ll have you know that all content on this website written prior to becoming a staff member (which is a recent development, so anything posted prior to this month), is all valid stuff. I was a consumer of Ansca’s product—and a very happy one at that.
With that said, the two past reviews I wrote on the Corona SDK can still be considered very credible:
When I wrote those reviews, I had no “motive” to say good things, other than the fact that I was a happy end-user of the product. I hadn’t planned on trying to become an Ansca staff member, I had no intentions of applying for a staff position—and frankly—didn’t know that being on the Ansca staff would ever be in my cards.
So if you’re still deciding on whether or not you want to become a Corona SDK subscriber, and not sure you want trust the words of an “Ansca Staff Member” when it comes to making your decision, take comfort in knowing that the reviews mentioned above, and anything written prior to very recently is all stuff from just a happy consumer of Ansca’s amazing product. Nothing more. Nothing less.
But it’s not like you have to read any reviews anyway. The Corona trial period is unlimited, and basically gives you access to the entire product—just shy of what you need to publish apps to the App Store(s).
So if you haven’t gotten as far as downloading the trial yet, what are you waiting for?!? That should be the first thing you do :–)
Excited? You Bet…
Now that I got all that out of the way, it’s worth mentioning that I’m very excited for what the future holds (such an understatement). And it goes without saying—but I’ll say it anyway—I’m very thankful to have the opportunity to work with such a great team, and to directly contribute to a startup whose product I fully stand behind—staff member or not.
