Tinderbox Backstage

Early Access Program

today’s status: workshop tryouts previews opening night

Since Tinderbox 1.0, we’ve shipped more than ninety 107 full-fledged Tinderbox releases and hundreds of test versions. We deliver several releases every year.

But there's even more action behind the scenes, as we design new features, improve existing facilities, roll out new tools, and experiment with fresh ideas. Tinderbox Backstage gives you access to experimental Tinderbox updates, often weeks or even months in advance of general availability. Backstage also gives Tinderbox fans a chance to explore alternate designs, to propose different approaches, and to exchange tips and techniques.

It’s also a nice way to support Tinderbox.

If you'd like first crack at new Tinderbox concepts, if you’d like to discuss ideas for new applications and new features, if you’d like to see how software is crafted, or if you’d like to show your support, backstage is for you.

Early Access

Here’s the plan:

A Ticket?

We’re going welcome some users to Team Tinderbox to refine and polish Tinderbox in the coming weeks. We’ll have some special boards and drop boxes for test releases and feedback. We’ll probably have some webcasts. We might have t-shirts and coffee cups and other fun things. Early-access ticket holders might see their name in lights — or in the About Box.

The big tickets will probably have some special perks, but that’s not the point. The point is...

Spreading the News

Beyond supporting the costs of the early access program, we use the ticket receipts to boost broader marketing. Web ads. Podcast sponsorships. Artisanal Software Festivals. As always, we deeply appreciate your support.
