Project Update

Joe and Dave discuss the progress of their respective projects. Time for a Project Update.

About the show

Joe and Dave discuss the progress of their respective projects, delving into the challenges, successes, and failures of being commercial software developers, periodic game developers, and general technology enthusiasts. Project Update is about our projects and lives, but we’ll also be bringing in other creators to talk about their projects and lives. In some ways we’re all dealing with the same issues, and in others we’re dealing with a problem space uniquely our own.
