Welcome to back2dev

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?
