I distinctly remember some of the first lines of code I ever wrote:

It was in Sinclair BASIC on a ZX Spectrum 48k plugged into a Philips TV. I copied the lines out of some magazine that came with cassette tapes and marveled that this thing I had would do what I told it to. I still have that 48k, though it's a little dented:
TEN7 is excited to be putting our thoughts on the web. We're interested in sharing how we do business, what our processes are, the struggles we've had, the successes we've enjoyed. As with any company blog, there's probably going to be a fair amount of navel gazing: my hope is that we steer towards useful facts and critical thinking and not towards self-aggrandizement. We'll do everything we can to make sure that our values of honesty, mindfulness, sharing and speaking plainly are upheld throughout any content we publish.
I never thought that one day I would be sitting in an office in America, working with the incredible humans I do on a daily basis. For me, those first few lines of code evolved into a company concerned with the humans that the code it produces affects. I hope that this first post is akin to those first few lines of code I wrote. I want us to create content that we can be proud of. I want it to reflect our own humanity.
Welcome to the TEN7 blog.
