We certainly love using and playing homebrews, but we've never actually tried to create them. The idea of it just always seemed so ... daunting. Homebrew developer Ant512 is trying to make the process easier, however, with an application called Woopsi.
This program essentially brings a windowing system to the DS, specifically tailored to homebrew programmers. It won't suffice as a proper desktop environment for the handheld, but that's not the purpose of the application. Rather, it's meant to help users create their own applications and reduce a hefty amount of code writing.
We still don't think we'll be able to create anything cool, but hopefully Woopsi will help some aspiring homebrewers with the process, leading to more great stuff in the future.

I've been making some simple homebrew games, and it is pretty technical, even if you are very comfortable with programming in general. This seems like it might be a nice way for some people with less time/skill to figure it all out to jump into the homebrew scene.

Darn, I thought this would help me formulate a good IPA or porter... ;)
