We are software craftsmen, and we have been
since 1996. Our simple business
model is to provide quality software to customers who can
use it, keep them happy, and collect whatever revenues we
can from our efforts. Our business model is simple and elegant
and it has worked well for us so far. The fancy and complicated
business models didn't work and those companies are gone now.
Those of us who are left are the strong ones, and we are proud
that we survived the latest natural selection cut.
If we build the simplest and most elegant
possible software that satisfies our customers, then we spend
less time hunting for bugs and more time writing cool new
software. We operate as efficiently as possible and we pass
our low overhead on to our customers. We also use as much
of our own software as possible for our own internal needs,
such as our my.endymion.com
online licensing system. We prefer to be dependent on the
quality of our own work because we trust our own work more
than we trust software from Microsoft or some other big company.
We also like the extra motivation to avoid stupid mistakes
and inelegant solutions. We use a company-wide organizational
model for our software source code so that we can re-use as
much of our work product as possible and also so that our
business depends on the reliability of the exact same code
that our customers are using in our products.
That's our story. If you are curious about
