What's up guys, glad to be a part of this group.

 

To make a long story short: Up until about 6 months ago I was all about Apple - I was very big into the Jailbreak community and largely a part of developing iOS themes. A life time friend, and user on the forum (AHowe125) convinced me to give android a shot so I picked up a Galaxy S3 GT-i9300 .. and well, I have never looked back. 

 

I spend my days as your typical IT guy, I serve as the Lead IT Analyst for an 800+ person company so it keeps me pretty busy. As the topic states I live in lovely San Diego with my wife and our 2 boys. My oldest is 3 and youngest will turn 2 next month. 

 

I constantly try to teach myself new coding languages to get myself involved into new projects. My most recent project being the first ever "Stratosphere Tweet" I took on a project with another developer to connect a Satellite phone to a Raspberry Pi, attach it to a weather balloon and monitor it's progress. When it reached the correct altitude it was supposed to send a tweet - This was a successful project and a link to the video is below. It was put together by a "YouTube Star" Joe Penna (MysteryGuitarMan). 

 

Looking forward to being a part of your community!

Welcome to the forums!

I gotta a real kick out of that video. What an awesome accomplishment! It looks like you guys put a lot of work into it, and I can imagine that it was pretty fun too.
