This is something I have been working toward, alongside many others, during my entire career at Unity.
It took a lot of "hack weeks," 20% time, and other donated time to get off the ground; it came within a hair's breadth of being terminated multiple times.
We fought to keep it alive, to get it onto the release track, to keep it from being shipped with special license restrictions.
It's great to finally see our work having a public impact.
Sweden will vote against the copyright deal including Article13/Article17 on April 15!
For the macOS-able people suffering under the unfortunate SourceTree “upgrade” history: Fork!
Free in beta - assuming evil monetisation once it has ensnared enough of us.
Not fully featured yet, certain teething annoyances - like no option to show text output of commands (so progress of un-integrated features like LFS is pure guesswork).

Initially #unity3d specific - later engine agnostic with multiple compilers and standalone IDE.
Lots of discussion topics in there like:
- Lockless high-throughout multithreading because OMG user code interface + network streaming of state & events
#tools: Latest (maddest?) tooling I did was post-processing our .net assemblies, rewriting stuff. Because fuck convention - this is OUR code, right? ;)
#bookshelf? I’m terrible at opening analogue books, but when I do it is usually Essential Mathematics For Games & Interactive Applications (Van Verth).
I also really enjoyed The Writers Journey (Vogler).
By far my greatest source of nonfiction reading is a ton of articles and whitepapers on my Instapaper account.
Highest traffic reading is sci-fi from iBooks and stuff from ComiXology.
