Back2dev was born of the technologies we have built for Back2bikes. It started with a simple attendance app, built by hackers from a boot camp. We’ve come a long way since then.
What started out as a learning exercise has evolved into some serious software development. We have had some talented people volunteer with us as they grew their skills. I am confident that we can grow this into a great community enterprise. More about that later, let’s go back to basics first.
Backbikes is a community bike workshop where people like to come and work on bikes. It works on many dimensions.
- It feels good
- It’s a place to learn
- It’s a place to grow
- It’s a place to contribute to the community
- It’s a place to make friends
I want these same qualities to exist at Back2dev, which may be challenging to achieve, because we don’t have a location (yet). Thanks to Covid, people have got used to remote work, and were looking for “worthwhile projects” that they could do from home. So we had a “remote working” tailwind 🙂
I’d like to add a few more items to the list:
- It’s a place to build cool tech
- It’s a place for grand designs
- It’s a place to hang out and talk tech
Perhaps you would like to come and help?
