  1. I keep promising myself that one day I will get motivated and develop my own dream app.
    Problem is that with so many “dream” apps being released weekly, I can’t be bothered to do it myself.
    One day maybe… 😉

    1. Maybe the best way to get there is through workshops. Sharing those dreams. Prototyping something together. Getting that dream app from all those dreams.
