RickR just pitched the idea of forming an Atari I/O Build Team to help each other on homebrew development. I think it's a fantastic idea and will be getting the other mods and the site as a whole behind the idea. Let's get started on this  :emoji-E420:

I do programming in BatariBASIC. It is a 2600 BASIC compiler that can be made into carts if wanted.

I have a hammer and some nails.

 

But seriously, more power to this groove!

 

I know nothing about it right now.

Just a head's up.

if i knew how to burn a homebrew game to a board and print high quality labels for the carts, I'd have the most homebrew games out of anybody!

That would be cool. What language would we use? Batari? Or use some other thing.
