DUBLIN, Ireland - Billionaire brothers from Limerick and owners of the online payments firm Stripe, have launched a new software engineering magazine.
The online publication aimed at coders is called Increment and has received appreciation from tech insiders in Silicon Valley who have called it “the New Yorker for geeks.”
Commenting on the publication, Stripe chief executive and co-founder Patrick Collison said it “aims to illuminate the most sophisticated practices from the best companies in the world.”
He added, “As software becomes more important in the world, the practice and art of software engineering becomes more important too. Our hope is that Increment can help surface the institutional wisdom and practices of the most effective software engineering organisations in the world so that the industry as a whole can make faster progress.”
He also spoke about the success of another spin-off, Stripe Atlas, a platform to help start internet businesses that they launched a year back
Collison said it was “something of an experiment to begin with, but the response has been hugely encouraging.”
The online magazine is reportedly being led by Susan Fowler, who has been working with Stripe since she left Uber.
The quarterly publication will put together long-form technical writing “that unearths how the most secretive and highest-performing engineering teams build and operate software systems at scale.”
Fowler further added, “The decision to join Stripe and run Increment was a pretty easy one for me. It was an opportunity to be impactful, to collect and share best practices from the most effective engineering teams in the world. Increment is a step toward flattening the distance between the Silicon Valley elite and developers everywhere.”
