“No matter what craft you're pursuing, there is no investment more useful, productive, or gratifying than a set of finely crafted tools and trustworthy reference materials", reminds us Rich Siegel, Bare Bones Software.
Tinderbox’s Mark Bernstein finds his colleagues a constant source of inspiration: "You don’t discover inspired design in focus groups. Artisanal software is filled with ideas, ambition, and a passion to make things right. Using all these tools together lets our team build better software while engaging the rest of the research community."
"Our customers love to create something new. And for this, they collect, organize, structure, delete, note, write, and – finally – perfect.
