The end of the year is fast approaching, and it's made me think about 2017 and everything that's happened on this channel.

Firstly, to be able to work on NODE full time now is a dream for me, and I want you to know that I don't take this for granted, not for a second. This job is the absolute most perfect fit for me, and I feel a moral obligation to not waste this chance.

I appreciate every one of you who has watched or shared the videos, donated, became a patron, or bought something from the shop.

It's been a lot of hard work, but I want to work even harder from now on. In a deeper sense, I want to justify my very existence by doing more, and I promise you that I won't stop until I drop dead.

I also want to say that I feel humbled by you all too. Every time I've asked for help on something, literally hundreds of you stepped forward, and that's a testament to what a great group of people you are.

So in the coming year, I plan on turning everything up to 11. I've been working on some new video series for a while, many new hardware projects, and I have other bigger plans too, but you will find out about all that in time.

Thank you.


As a small way to show my gratitude I want to do a giveaway. I'll be making some extra stuff from the shop, including the charging keychains, dogtags, watches, multitools, pi zero cases, and more. I also have a few brand new Raspberry Pi 3's that will be included, as well as some new things that will be coming to the shop soon.

To enter, just make sure you're subscribed, and leave a comment letting me know what you like and don't like about NODE, and what you want to see in the coming year.

I'll pick a handful of winners in a couple of weeks, and will message you through Youtube. I'll also ship to anywhere in the world.

Thank you again, and I look forward to reading the comments.
