Software Underground is all of us

Thank you for supporting Software Underground.


In 2014, Duncan Child and Matt Hall started a Google Group called Software Underground (affectionately referred to as Swung). A little more than a year later, it branched out to Slack. The move connected us much better, and it’s where most of the daily Software Underground action is today.

In April 2020 we took the step of incorporating as a non-profit. This gave us a solid foundation upon which to continue to grow, especially as we look ahead to a more connected, more digitally dependent society.
