Site News

The things we work on can often change fairly dramatically. One day you're writing a desktop application, then they want an online version and then suddenly it's aa mobile app. Just think of it as job security.

Every so often we take a core sample to get an idea of what's going on in our crazy, mixed up, unstable and fun industry, so if you have 2 minutes we'd love to get your feedback.

As a shameless bribe there's a chance to win a $50 amazon gift card. Filling these in helps us enormously.

cheers,
