The focus of this blog is the practice of making software,and the people who do it. Mostly independent developers and small teams. Mostly video games and apps that scratch and itch. Personal software. Learning and experimenting. Not so much the corporate stuff – that’s what Joe does at work all day.

There will be detours into other interests, too. Sometimes you just need to post your favourite book or pimp your friend’s new band.
