BoiseDev is a micro-news site focused on development growth in the greater Boise, Idaho area

The effort started in 2013 with a series of tweets. The popularity of the tweets led to a newsletter in 2015, and this website launching in 2016. BoiseDev has grown to be the most laser-focused place to find development news and notes in the greater Boise area. Long-form stories mix with quick hit items and an extensive Project Tracker.

BoiseDev.com is the most visited business news site in Idaho, serving tens of thousands of Idahoans every month. We maintain an active Facebook group where many stories and ideas are shaped by our community of readers.

The site is supported by limited advertising and a membership program known as BoiseDev FIRST
