Thanks for all your help in getting so many of us started in MonoGame development

Hi Dominique,

thanks a lot for your time, your work and your initial idea.

The happiness to make a living again (after 7 years hiatus) from games would not be possible without MonoGame and you. What’s better, I haven’t had a boss for a year and I can work in pajamas :). That peace of mind can’t be paid with money :slight_smile:

All the best!!
