Nextpowerup.com has an interview with Stardock's VP of Technology Kris Kwilas (Nakor) and gives some insights on the technology Stardock uses. It's a great article to get an inside view of what goes on behind the scenes.
"IT work can many times be described as long periods of relative quiet interspersed with short periods of absolute panic. Is it any different at Stardock?
It is somewhat different at Stardock as we are not potentially as silo'd when it comes to the operational groups. There is a large range of things we're doing on a daily basis, from devops, netdev, and fighting the infrastructure entropy of a 50 person company. Time not spent there is involved with developing, releasing, and supporting our Windows desktop enhancements (Start8, Fences, WindowBlinds, and more) as well as PC strategy games (Galactic Civilizations, Fallen Enchantress, and more)."
