I started this company in 2006 to develop and market Astah, a UML editor integrated with Mind Mapping features. My background is in software engineering, something I’ve been doing for more 20 years. For about half of that time I worked on practical applications for object-oriented technologies, the other half for Agile approaches in real world software development.
Innovation is rarely the result of rigid thinking, but most software tools focus only on the engineering - strict, formal, mechanical thought. Programmers grow are used to being bogged down in endless lines of code, but we thrive on inspiration. We need something more intuitive - something that will engage our logic, our imagination and our urge to create as a team.
Tools available to software developers get the mechanical side right. But aren't user frendly, and fail to provide an environment to improvise and interact with coworkers. I wanted to change the way that individuals and groups develop software. I wanted to provide a common forum that would make software design more productive, rich and fun.
Simplicity, Quality, and Community are our three greatest priorities
