While we’re in the process of building BankSimple, we’ll be sharing the occasional blog post about our software development techniques, tools, and methodology. Since this is the first such post, I’d like to introduce readers to the fundamentals of our approach. We’ve already shared some information about our process on Quora and some initial open source releases on GitHub, but this will go deeper.

I believe strongly that the tools and techniques used to build software end up being reflected in the quality of that software. We want BankSimple to be simple and trouble-free from the customer’s perspective. We’re attempting to build software that mirrors those values.

Wow, not many banks are going to share their back-end engineering processes in any way, much less this much depth. Definitely worth a follow if you’re tech-minded.
