Flint developers: an inside look

The Day of the Programmer dun dun dunnnn  *insert epic music intro here* (Yeah, we know, what?) which is celebrated on the 256th (hexadecimal 100th, or the 28th) day of each year (September 13 during common years and on September 12 in leap years) has rolled around once again.

What is so special about this day, you may ask? Well, it is on this day that tech companies around the globe pay humble homage to the elusive being that is the programmer.

And in celebration of this day, luring him away from his nest with promises of ice cream, we decided to pick the brains of our resident developer, Tapiwa.

Without further ado, we present to you:
