I’ve worked C#, .NET, WPF, MS Surface, Silverlight, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Flash, Adobe Flex, Windows Phone 7 and finally iOS.

It’s been quite a journey and in the process, I’ve quit 3 times to try to start my own business. At some points, I was making about $18,000 a year and

Note: you can still build a career in programming with out college. I started out freelancing to get my chops. Income hasn't been as good, as I'm only making about 30k right now (although, I've only been doing this for about 5 years, in total vs. this guy's 10). But it's doable, and no student loans which offsets it a bit too!

So if you know asp.net c# wish you did a video for folks that know that and want to learn an Apple app. Would be helpful. I know asp.net c#' C, and many mainframe languages and want a quick lesson on an iOS app.
