Andreas Kviby is the CEO of 10FINGERS, a development studio based in Sweden. 10FINGERS recently launched CoronaPaper, a unique magazine designed for Corona SDK developers around the globe. CoronaPaper is available at http://coronapaper.com for $5 for a single issue or $50 for a yearly subscription which includes 10 issues. CoronaPaper is offered in both digital and hard copy forms.

Corona Paper logoMy name is Andreas Kviby and I run a development studio in Sweden with a crystal clear focus on building mobile solutions with Corona SDK. We started the studio a couple of years ago and it’s now grown to include more than 20 employees in snowy Sweden.

I have always been a passionate community leader and have started many community projects over the years. This is mainly because I understand the need for great content, tutorials and more for developers, regardless of skill set.

About a year and a half ago, I started to write down the beginning ideas for CoronaPaper. An online magazine for Corona developers all over the globe, I envisioned CoronaPaper packed with fun, easy to learn, and cool information, filled with hilarious competitions and great prizes. Back then, I couldn’t make the dream come true due to a lack of time and cash. So we started to save money for this project and after the summer of 2012, we were ready to make the dream come alive.

On December 17, we plan to launch the first issue, thanks to great collaboration between 10FINGERS and Corona Labs. The first issue is packed with interesting articles, FAQs, cheat sheets, news on APIs and much more. We had the opportunity to interview Walter Luh, the founder and CEO of Corona Labs, for the first edition. It’s a great read about a man that’s made our “hall of fame” here at 10FINGERS.

You can expect issues with over 40 pages, packed with tutorials and fun stuff to read every month for less than $50 a year. You will be able to read it online, on your phone, on your tablet and maybe even order printed copies in the near future.

I am very proud to announce the magazine and we’re thrilled to see the reactions from the developer community. Get your hands on the preview right away at http://coronapaper.com, read the Facebook article and check out the table of contents.

I hope you’re as excited as I am for the big launch on December 17. You can win a Macbook Air and other great prizes, by subscribing for the magazine, and competing in first issue’s contest.

    Seems very nice & attractive…

    Hope to find tips & testimonials about business apps too in there… Because we use corona mainly for business apps, and it is very effective for what we do with it…

    Good work… Let us know when we can buy it!

    Just got done with the first issue. Lots of good content for beginners and up to advanced Corona users. I liked the graphics and content. The reviews of products like Glider and Gumbo were great, I can’t wait to see more reviews in future issues. Ok before this gets too long, I liked everything about the magazine. I only bought the first issues (not the subscription) because I wanted to “test the waters first”. I am easily going to buy the full year long subscription now, it is easily worth the price. You an tell everyone involved in putting this together was passionate about Corona and what they do because the magazine is excellent. I wish I had print copies. Can’t wait for the next issue!

    Thank you for your kind words. We’ve been putting a lot of effort in to making this happen. Nothing makes me happier than when people appreciate my work. I’m sure that goes for the rest of our staff as well :)

    Thanks a lot to Inna, Walter and the rest of the involved parts at corona staff for your cooperation. We are going to do our best to raise the bar of quality for every issue we release.

    Hi,

    I’d like to have a look at the preview but when I click on the link going to coronapaper.com it brings up an interceptor website where someone else is no doubt making money off of link clicks :(

    Is the site currently available as I do not seem to be able to find coronapaper.com and therefore view or buy edition #1 has not been possible. I have looked at the facebook entry and it looks like a brilliant resource.

    I purchased the magazine as soon as you announced it. I think your magazine is a great idea and thank you for putting it together. I do have one request however… Could you please have a native english speaking person proof-read it first? I find a lot of the grammar to be incorrect, which lowers the overall quality of an otherwise excellent magazine.

    For example :

    (Page 12) Graphics has to be created, along with sound and music. – should be “Graphics have to be..”

    (Page 28) Simply Explained: The easier it is to code, the slower it performs. So naturally we was a bit skeptical to CoronaLabs’ slogan. We decided to put it to the test. – should be “we were a bit…”

    Note that these are just two simple examples.

    Thank you for reading my rant, and again thanks for putting this digital magazine together…
