On Thursday 17th November, we hosted our last Developer Evening of the year. Despite the rainy weather we had a great turnout, with many new faces coming through to join us. The first 15 guests to arrive even won themselves an awesome Warewolf T-shirt.

Last night we held our 8th Dev Evening since we starting running them in 2012. Our very first Dev Evening had about 15 attendees in our old office in Kloof. Back then I thought we were doing pretty well!

It’s been three weeks since we started looking for alpha testers/users for Warewolf software. In that time we have done a lot of planning and preparing for the big release of Warewolf in a private download.

We’re aiming to have the release ready in the next month or so and it has had a very different […]

As a company we aim to run three to four community events annually. There seems to be so little happen in Durban yet there are a lot of developers who want regular events. The dedication is so big that some developers form Durban will travel all the way to Jo’burg for a coderetreat. It’s mad […]
