Merry Christmas 2011!

Ray Wenderlich

Every year, we have a little tradition where we sing a super-embarassing geeky Christmas song to wish ya’ll a Merry Christmas ;]

Here’s this year’s entry – “iOS Wonderland!” I apologize in advance for my singing :P

We wish you all a Merry Christmas, and thank you so much for reading this blog!

  • Thanks Ray,

    Don't apologize for the gift. It's the thought, and not the quality that matters. Besides I've heard much worse. Little did I know when I signed up for the cococ2d course in Atlanta, that I would get musical entertainment along with superior training and a terrific web site :)

    Merry Christmas!
