Marko Anastasov has been working with computers for a long time. He grew up in former Yugoslavia in the 90’s, when there was civil war, hyper inflation, and the economy was taken back 20 years. His father was an electronics guy, so there was always a computer around in the house. He found himself fascinated with information and the things you could conjure up on the “magic screens”… and, he found that computers were a place you could build things that were not influenced by the outside world.
As a kid he played sports, mainly volleyball. He recalls that even at the age of 15, he and his friends were already being measured for spots on the national team. He has taken many lessons from his time playing volleyball, where a group of people have a shared sense of purpose, driving towards a goal.
While building applications under the guise of his web development agency, Rendered Text, he and his fellow builders saw a need to have a way of automating processes of building, testing and integrating… and doing so fast.
