**horrific.dev** is a collective organization of individual developers and enthusiasts with a focus on independent services, software, and technology. We advocate for open code, ethical computing, and tools that you control.

# What's up with the name?
## What's up with the name?
horrific.dev's identity is derived from a common mindset shared by many of our members: namely, a perception of software development as a perpetually imperfect pursuit - and the idea that, sometimes, failure is okay.

In many ways, aiming for perfection caters to the majority. It implies a disregard of issues in a minor context, and makes decisions to suit a larger scope. To some extent, this priority is inevitable, as we've already established that nothing can be perfect. In implementation, though, it means that a lot of software is built and designed for "most people". It's built with most people in mind, so that the product is used by the most customers and gains the most profit. It's built for everyone, and the outcome is perfect for no one.

The organization needs some general maintenance. We now have a page on [Open Collective](https://opencollective.com/horrific-dev) to manage and track expenses. We need to connect social media accounts to a central "mailing list" (which is waiting on the server before it can be set up). We also need to put some work into more clearly defining our values as a group.
Depending on our members having free time, we have [semi-regular meetings](/events/) in Pittsburgh, PA where we drink tea and discuss software projects and current events.
