What I like most about the Visa Developer program is the sense of comradery. From the assistance of other developers to the wonderful information dumps from the Visa staff. As an independent developer, it can get lonely creating great Visa applications. Knowing that help and information is just a few questions away gives the feeling of a development family. The Visa Developer platform feature I enjoy the most is the sandbox. Without access to the Sandbox, there would be no way for us very small independent developers to create new apps even with access to the APIs and user cases.

Hi All, I am Race Vanderdecken, and I am a software architect working on two Visa push payment application designs and implementations. The iOS app is currently planned using AWS cloud integration as the background system. Other mobile platforms will be rolled out as staffing increases. Hopefully, the product will be used worldwide once available. The goal of the application is to allow payment to small vendors in real-time. I live in a rain forest in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. I have just recently completed my Bachelor's degree in IT Management Information Systems with Operations Management from the University of North Carolina. I would love to be able to work on a project with other developers as an intern to gain insight into the Visa Developer design to product chain. I am working on my AWS Solutions Architect certification and ITIL Foundations. While I am new to the developer program I know it is the right place to grow my designs and applications. Visa Developer program could help if they provided examples of how others are connected from Cloud to sandbox. Though that might exist already and I have just not found the link to the information. I look forward to the success of all of you, -Race Vanderdecken
