About the founders
The company was founded by Alexey Bobkov and Samuel Georges. They started their careers even before the modern Web and they were there when it all began. They have created desktop applications for DOS, Windows and *nix and later - websites, web technologies and frameworks.
They have been watching and following the development of PHP and accompanying technologies and frameworks from the beginning, when PHP stood for Personal Home Page, growing their skills and comparing everything they see with everything they've seen before the Web. This gave them the rare ability to see the things outside the grid and not to be caught with novelty and cyclical trends in web development. With October CMS they put all the years of their experience into a single product, trying to bring all the best from the past to the future.
There is a quote from Albert Einstein that expresses our philosophy the best: "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler".
Web development is actually very easy, a lot of people already know the HTML basics. Websites are also simple by nature, they are based on text files. Somewhere along the way people forgot about this. The vision we have is to make web development simple [again] and prove that making websites is not rocket science, it is something for everybody. We want to get back to basics, to where it all began, bringing with us the things that are obvious, natural and useful.
