Hey folks - just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Roj - President/founder of Perk.com. We're using Corona to build a next generation of mobile apps/games at Perk.com and got so excited about what is possible with Corona that we are acquiring the company.
We're excited about the future of Corona and I'm looking forward to sharing with you the vision of how we see things in an upcoming Corona Labs blog post but thought I would post here first to introduce myself.
Apart from starting Perk, I consider myself first-and-foremost a developer (mostly web, LAMP stack) and have been coding since the late 90s. From before the days of AJAX and when netscape plugins and VBScript were around, I've been evolving with the changing state of what "digital" means and truly believe the Corona represents the future of where game/app development should (and will) be. In addition to developing web apps, I ran a web hosting company (in the very niche PostgreSQL space) and served a community of developer-first customers - as many of you know forums are the heart of hosting communities and so I appreciate/value that the Corona developer community is supported by such a thriving one right here in the Corona Labs forums.
The short version of what a blog post will eventually share with you is the following:
- Perk.com is profitable and thriving
- Perk.com is a public company (TSX:PER)
- Perk.com has always published apps as an "owned-and-operated" app company - we aren't your typical "ad tech" company though we both realize and depend that advertising is an essential component of what makes a mobile app ecosystem thrive.
- Perk.com is very *very* excited about the Corona SDK!
