Earlier this month (on the 4th, to be exact), OmniTI celebrated its 10th birthday. From humble beginnings in Theo's basement to a company of almost 50 employees, things have certainly changed. We now have an entire division devoted to email (Message Systems), a new office opening in New York, and a strong reputation that we all cherish. I haven't been here since the beginning, but I'm very proud to be a part of this team.
On his blog, Theo shares his thoughts on the occasion:
OmniTI is my other child, and the stresses and accommodations that I and everyone close to me have shouldered for OmniTI have been both heavy and relentless.
Like anything you care deeply about, this company requires great sacrifice but yields great reward. The people who work here are smart, but more importantly, we're passionate about what we do. What do we do? Apache, Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, PHP, Perl, PostgreSQL, MySQL, and Oracle, just to name a few favorites. We create, fix, scale, secure, and maintain some of the biggest web sites around, and we love it.
Here's to the next ten years!
