    Hey niners,
    First I want to apologize if posting about new software is against the rules. I actually couldn't find the forum rules on the website, and I'm really excited about this project, so I wanted to share it with other developers and the like!

    FaultTrack on Kickstarter.
    Includes in-depth information and a video.

    Basically, I have been working on this project for almost two years now. I was inspired because I'm really passionate about software development, and I enjoy writing tools that make developers more productive. I've written other small tools that friends have used and really liked, but for this I took on something big.

    I know most people just say "Ugh, another bug tracker", but I really want to provide something that just shines. The user experience and interface design for example, I've made look just like Visual Studio, but I've also used some Metro UI design principles for some of the interfaces. I think it turned out wonderful. I think most bug trackers today (but not all), have really bad user interfaces.

    I also thought to myself... why can't we automate the process of capturing Exception information into a bug tracker, while debugging a project? Visual Studio already does this, so FaultTrack will to. Now that's a very high level explanation of it, but I think it could really be a great tool for developers.

    Anyway, check out the link, the video and the project. I hope you guys really like it, because I'm very excited to work on it this year since its almost done.

    @DeadX07: This is fine. It's not spam since it's related to software development. There's nothing wrong with sharing Kickstarter projects here, especially if the projects aim to help developers...

    Thanks Charles! I hope everything is going great in native world, maybe one day I'll start writing tools for native C++, you never know, and keep up the great work on all the C9 videos Smiley

    @DeadX07: Wait a minute. You don't have any goodness for native devs?

    Post flagged!

    PS: Thanks! Lots more C++ videos in the pipeline in addition to .NET videos... I think it's time I start doing some HTML5 content, too.

    The first language I learned was C++, so I have plenty of love and goodness for it, and I'm excited about C++ 11 even though I haven't had time to toy with it in a compiler yet. HTML5 content will be useful too, so looking forward to everything. I think I've watched just about every language video on this site, they're all very good.

    @DeadX07: Right on. C++11 is a new language, really. You'll be pleasantly surprised. C++ goes modern.

    PS: I'm heading to C++ and Beyond next Saturday, so you'll see some excellent C++11 content in the coming weeks on C9.
