Its Back!

After almost a year, we've decided to bring back the Dev Blog. For those of you who don't know, I tried to keep this pretty up to date the first few months of Amie Street. As things went on, I just got too busy.

However, since the time of this last post, we've been making leaps and bounds on the development side of things, quietly trying to improve the service, try/create new technologies to meet our needs, and playing around with new toys. So much has happened in the last nine months, its incredible. We've added 5 of the greatest engineers in the world and got a real office (we've come a long way) .

So, whats the point of this? We'll try and keep some things scheduled regularly. In the next hour or so, we'll push out a fresh set of bug fixes to the production servers. Every Monday and Thursday, we'll post immediately after the update a list of bug fixes and improvements (in this case tomorrow morning). Tuesday and Friday, we'll also post a running list of upcoming bug fixes and improvements for the next update.

Here's a quick run down of what we'll be posting here:
  1. Talking about what new features we're working on
  2. Share some code tricks we've learned (whether thats javascript, PHP, Flex, Java, erlang, or oCaml)
  3. What its like in the office
  4. Our rants on technology, music, and everything in between

In general, the point is to give you a look inside, trade thoughts on music and technology, and build better tools for you all for finding, sharing, buying and selling your music and hopefully meeting some cool people.

Drop us a line and share your two cents. Is this description up to snuff? Are there other things you would like to see here? Should we stop this entirely and just got back to writing code? As always, it's up to you.
