Merry Christmas 2013!

Ray Wenderlich

As you may or may not know, we have a tradition where each year, we sing a silly Christmas song about a geeky topic.

This year, we have made a song titled “This Year in iOS 7”, sung to the tune of “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.” We hope you enjoy – and we apologize in advance for our singing! :]

Lyrics and Credits

This year in iOS 7 (Ray Wenderlich)
Jony kept us on our toes (B.C. Phillips)
He redesigned the OS (Pietro Rea)
Skeuomorphism: it goes. (Chris Belanger)

All of the app designers (John Nyquist and family)
used to laugh and call iOS names (Ellen Shapiro)
They made fun of all the leather (Bear Cahill)
And green felt inside iOS games. (Pawel ‘Kender’ Maczweski and family)

Then this year at WWDC (Scott Sherwood and family)
Tim Cook came to say (Soheil Azarpour)
App devs with your eyes so bright (Cesare Rocchi)
You’ll be redesigning your apps tonight. (Toby Stephens and family)

Then all the coders loved him (Tammy Coron)
As they shouted out with glee (yippee!) (Brian Moakley and family)
With such a major update (Ryan Poolos)
Hello job security! (Ray Wenderlich and Vicki Wenderlich)

Special thanks to Cosmin Pupaza for the guitar background music! :]
