After a while I continue with the Hot7 posts dedicated to special people in my life. This post is entirely in English since I didn’t want to translate Dennis’ answers to preserve the juice in them.
Dennis Gurnick is definitely a remarkable man, a master of sarcasm. At a very young age he left Canada and after episodes as a student, developer and consultant in USA and Belgium love brought him to Slovenia. Having worked with Intera he’s now a freelance developer and consultant with high entreprenurial aspirations.
We “met” on Twitter at the time of the last Olympics when I was extremely amused about curling (and curling catches attention of every Canadian). After some chatter we kinda started do stuff together; only some of what was started was also actually finished. The greatest pending stuff of all is TheCrappr, a place to vent and flush your frustrations. We also got a first angel investor – his mother bought the domain.
But what actually was done are two Android apps where Dennis did all the bits (and I did the pixels) – Moj Tehnik and The Blamr. The first is a cute app that was made for Mobitel’s Android competition – you can read the Tehnik blog, check out your mobile consumption, find info about Mobitel’s support and download other Android apps. The Blamr was done during one night immediately after we submitted Moj tehnik to the competition. With The Blamr you can take a photo and then paste on it another photo of let’s say your friend from a gallery or contacts and so blame your friend for what happened on that photo. App still needs some love and will keep you posted about updates.
Dennis is ultimately the author of the single best quote I ever heard from a developer: “I was told to wait. But the curiosity brought the best out of me.” – and delivered a working prototype for Space invaders for Android although the client hadn’t given out anything but the idea. Respect.
