We are Alexey Bobkov and Samuel Georges, a dual-skilled duo in programming and UX design from Canada and Australia. Together we have more than 30 years of web development experience. We started our careers even before the modern Web and we were there when it all begun. During our life we have created desktop applications for DOS, Windows and *nix and later - websites, web technologies and frameworks.
We 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 our skills and comparing everything we see with everything we've seen before the Web. This gives us the rare ability to see the things outside the grid and not to be caught with modern trends and everything else what's happening now. We are not satisfied with some things in the modern web development and we want to fix it. With October we put all the years of our 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.
