We are driven by three goals:
1.~ Write great software that makes our customers
lives more enjoyable and productive.
We strive to write elegant, robust software that solves
problems for our customers, making their work and lives
more enjoyable and productive. We work to solve those problems
which are properly addressed in software. We are platform
agnostic because we realize that our customers are committed to their
own businesses and not any particular software platform.
2.~ Further the best practices within our industry.
Software writing is engineering, and solid engineering happens
within the framework of well thought out practices. Softcentral's
goal is not to try every new technique and idea, but to
learn from the evolution of practices that has occurred
in the past 20 years in this industry, and to add to that
evolutionary process. We commit to writing software that
reflects the best practices, and when we can, to further
the progress of those practices. In order to remain true
to our commitment to write great software, we must focus
on our engineering practices and processes.
3.~ Support our community.
The software field is a very social field, a community full
of committed engineers passionate about their work. So many
people have given so much of their time and brainpower to
deliver incredible tools which help to make all of our lives
better. BSD, Linux, Apache, Samba, XFree86, GCC, just to
name a few. These tools form the foundation on which much
of the internet and other computing infrastructures run
on. Softcentral feels that it owes a debt to this community.
In order to live up to this debt, Softcentral is dedicated
to producing and releasing open source tools, alongside
our commercial software, that we feel will help our fellow
developers in their own quest to write great software. We
feel by doing so, we give back to the community that has
given so generously to us.
