First paying customer!

David Hawkins @papacuppa

The plan for Dokyu from the start was to produce 15 flexible motion design libraries. This would take time, however. After producing the first library 'documentary' I decided I'd test the waters and set up a promotion with the company Stackcommerce. At this stage I just wanted to know whether people would put money where their mouth was. Knowing the product had a ways to go, I advertised free updates.

We launched on February 10th and I was grateful to see the first paid customer the same day. Woo!

We had some issues with the Windows ZXP installer, but I was fortunate enough to have a number of customers willing to go back and forth over email to resolve the issues.
