Show Notes:

Web app developer, pixel artist and tech satirist Jenn Schiffer loves to build tools that facilitate the creation of art and lower the barrier to get new people into programming, especially young girls. 

"I built this for myself so I wasn’t concerned about getting it out there.”

During our chat, we talked about the origin of make8bitart.com, why she didn’t monetize the site despite thousands of daily visitors, when to add features to a project that doesn’t make money and her accidental promotion plan. We also talk about why naming is the hardest thing in computer science and I share my own naming story for the first time.
