Hello! Have you heard the news?

23rd August 2011

Late last year, Eamon, David & Helgi started working on Orchestra, a platform as a service for PHP. We worked our geeky arses off to build a product that PHP developers everywhere could use (even in their sleep). We wanted to make life easier for our community, we wanted developers to get back to doing what they do best: writing code...

Today we are delighted to announce that Orchestra is joining Engine Yard, a company that for that last number of years has helped to define what PaaS means to developers.

What this means is that from today, echolibre is closed. We will no longer be taking on client work, and we will no longer be a consulting as a team of kick ass PHP & Python developers.

We'd like to thank all our clients, friends and supporters over the last three years.

In particular, we want to thank the Irish and Dublin web communities. I've met other web communities in Europe and in the USA, and I can say, hand on heart, they don't have a patch on you guys.

Our Irish web community is the heart and soul of the Irish tech industry, and without all of us sharing, contributing, exchanging, connecting... it would be a very different industry.

As for our team... We have new challenges ahead of us, and we're looking forward to getting stuck in.

UPDATE:For those who have asked, we are not moving, Ireland is our home :)
