Call for Amiga Developers
Kickstarting PowerPC and 68k software development

Sacramento 17th October 2015

As part of our ongoing commitment to deliver quality software content for both PowerPC and 68K Amiga systems A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased announce a new initiative for Amiga software developers.



In the past year we launched the AMIStore app store which has been enthusiastically supported by both Amiga developers and users.

AMIStore performance update:

44 software titles
Customer base ~700
Over 2200 paid transactions

……..and growing month on month

We have also purchased many Classic and Next-Generation AmigaOS titles as well as funding the development of several new applications and utilities. As part of this drive to improve the amount and quality of Amiga software we have created a dedicated SVN resource for all developers working on our applications. We have also implemented a  Mantis bug tracker together with a developer mailing list and Wiki to aid software development. We now have 14 developers engaged in paid development work on 23 software projects. However, we are keen to expand and accelerate our software development effort to create new applications and utilities for the PowerPC and 68k platforms.

Call for Amiga Developers
We are looking for experienced Amiga developers to work on our existing applications and create new content for both the 68k and PowerPC platforms. If you are an existing or former Amiga developer and want to help create new software applications for the 68k or PowerPC platform please visit:

Very forward thinking on the part of Aeon.  I really want to commend them of strategically and intelligently putting positive movement into this wonderful computer both classically and moving forward!
Bravo.

Great, as long as there are no NDAs and similar stupid strings attached, that later can be used to prevent developers from participating in other projects.

Free Olsen and Thomas and now! :)

EDIT: And.. Sacramento? What on earth are they doing in California?

We have established the infrastructure to make sure the right environment for Amiga development exists such as development forums, SVN server, developer mailing lists and Wiki.

Any chance of giving links to the development forums, web based SVN server and Wiki mentioned?

This wiki is about AmigaOS 4.x so a 3.x one is needed, maybe they should ask for the right to put the developer cd 2.1 online.

Trevor in his speech says " 14 developers engaged under NDA..." Which is common in the software industry so I see no problem here.

It is not that I can't find the resources but rather that it should be easier for everyone at http://www.amigadeveloper.com/ to find the resources.

this effort is obviously primarly aimed at attracting developers for os4 applications to be distributed via amistore, if there is any intention to provide infrastructure for amiga development, let alone a closs platform, i suspect it is secondary.

I sincerely believe A-Eon wants to encourage Amiga development albeit with a focus on AmigaOS 4 and PPC. They need to convert more 68k Amiga users and developers to expand their user and developer base. I doubt that the AmigaNG is competitive enough to attract many outside users and developers.

Everything that is being done, it is also replicated in OS3 wherever technically feasible.

So A-EON is looking for all developers, whether they want to code for OS3 or OS4. In fact at the moment, emphasis is on talented OS3 coders because less have stepped forward so far.
