Development Blog: Week 1

Tech, Updates April 9th, 2017

Evening you wonderful people, because many of you asked for it. I’m starting to do a weekly development blog.

This won’t always be full of changes or fixes but hopefully give you a better idea of what happens each week to SoSa and how we’re striving to make it better.

I’ll try to make this interesting when I can, time allowing.
