I just wanted to blog about some of my recent achievements on Khan Academy.

A few weeks ago, I think some of you watched me have a great weekend as I "released" as we call it, my sunset program. It was so exciting. I skyrocketed to the top of the hot list, in one shot, going from being semi known in the coding section, to feel like one of the coding celebrities.

I was up there for more than a full 24 hours. I landed on the hot list high up, and then traveled to number one within an hour. That was on Saturday late afternoon. I fell out of the number one slot sometime Monday when I was not home.

The highlights of this endeavor were that one person said I was the next DY. I'm not, but that's a huge compliment considering he is probably THE most well known programmer in the coding section-besides Pamela.  Speaking of Pamela, she actually complimented my sunset as well. Well, that was pretty nice.

So that was January 9th to the 11th. Then on the 26th, I had a nice surprise as I earned Great Inspiration from this program.

I want to thank the Khan Academy communtiy for all your support.
