Are you...

  • The type of developer who uses what works while keeping an eye out for a better way.
  • You reach outside the mainstream to adopt the best of any community: Open Source, Agile, Java, Ruby, etc.
  • You’re not content with the status quo. Things can always be better expressed, more elegant and simple, more mutable, higher quality, etc.
  • You know tools are great, but they only take you so far. It’s the principles and knowledge that really matter. The best tools are those that embed the knowledge and encourage the principles (e.g. Resharper.)

...then you're in the right place!

We are a group of people who are passionate about improving the way we develop software. We recognise there is no single solution, but instead there are multitudes of alternatives that can be applied to different situations. Our community is a place for sharing these alternatives, so that together we can learn, teach, and encourage new ideas.
