I don’t think that was what Povl was saying, Camal. It certainly isn’t what I think.
We do have our preferences and tendencies at Pragmatic Programmers. We lean to open source rather than proprietary, new rather than old, and agile rather than – non-agile. We are tracking smart phone software development because there is immense interest in that area. We have a strong line of Mac books and that naturally gets reflected in our articles. The company has a lot of experience with Ruby, and that is reflected, too. But we’re growing (a remarkable thing among publishers today) and we will naturally expand into new areas.
I might point out that there was not a single Mac-specific feature article in the latest issue, and hardly any in the magazine’s first five issues. And none are planned for the upcoming December issue. We are hardly Mac-only.
But the magazine is young, and still, I hope, open to fresh ideas. I want to expand our focus and I welcome everyone’s input about how to do that.
