Akeeba has produced software for Joomla, WordPress, and the occasional stand-alone PHP application since 2006. We believe in crafting quality software, with a special focus on security and an eye towards the future.
We are a developer-run company, from creating the products to answering all the support requests ourselves (instead of outsourcing). This personal touch allows us to be more in tune with our clients needs, and the feedback we get reflects that!
Nicholas studied Mechanical Engineering but web development ultimately won his heart. He's been programming since he was eleven years old in a variety of programming languages such various dialects of BASIC, x86 assembly, Pascal, Delphi, Fortran and –since 2001– PHP. He has been using Joomla! since the Mambo days, first as a front-end developer and since late 2006 as the lead developer of JoomlaPack, what is now known as Akeeba Backup.
Davide is a talented programmer and security specialist. After some time spent on desktop programming, he embraced the web and started developing with Joomla, working as freelancer with web agencies and creating extensions on his own. When he found Akeeba's Framework On Framework project, it was love at first sight: now he can't work without it, and enjoys working to refine and expand Akeeba's extensions.
Dale has been with the Akeeba team for a long time, first by volunteering on the forum, and then as a paid employee in 2013. He is an accountant by trade with a long time fascination (addiction?) for computers. He started his journey on a "True Blue" IBM PC with dual 5 1/4" floppy drives (no hard drives in those days), running MS DOS 1.x and using mainly VisiCalc for application software. And yes - there were dinosaurs in those days! ????
