“I would like to say how much I appreciated the opportunity to compete. At first, I was certainly only interested in the competition because of the rewards available, but as development progressed I found that programming on this scale was something I really enjoyed. So, thank you for giving me the spark I needed to realize how much I enjoyed programming. Even since the competition, I have worked further on the app in hopes of one day releasing it to the app store. Additionally, this competition gave me the chance to build my resume, which has been becoming increasingly important over the past year. I sincerely hope that this competition continues in the oncoming years, as I would like to be part of it every year.”
