Verb has evolved, both as an application and as a community since it was launched last year. In thinking about its future, I’ve decided to share a little more about who is behind it.
Behind Verb is Rocketship, and behind Rocketship is me. I know that will come as a surprise to many of you. There is not in fact a team of monkeys furiously coding away in the wee hours of the morning to bring you Verb. Verb is my application, and I'm proud of what I've created, and what it has become since it launched. I'm glad that thousands of people are able to be better organised and collaborate on their projects through something I made.
I consider myself primarily a designer, but for almost as long as I’ve been designing, I’ve been moonlighting as a coder as well (in fact, the moonlighting became daylighting for a year or so).
Some things about me:
I like Django for building web applications.
I like Ubuntu as my OS.
I like Inkscape for design.
I like my IDE to be as simple as possible.
I like robots (particularly if they want to be my friend).
I like you guys, the users of Verb.
Oh, and I am Huw Wilkins.
My plan for the coming months is to blog a bit more about what I'm doing with Verb and get your feedback and ideas as I develop Verb further. The feedback section of the site may be a bit disorganised, but I do read everything there, even if it takes me a while to respond, and I really value everything that is posted there.
I really want to create something that you love to use. Together we can do something great.
