80 Lines introduction
As he succeeded as a freelancer among multiple clients and projects, lack of time started to be a bottleneck. There were so many things to be done, so many great projects to be worked on, great clients and businesses to help, that he felt the need and the opportunity to start hiring people and building up a team of frontend specialists.
It was the beginning of a very special team of engineers. Friendship, trust, collaboration and high-standards were the pillars of this new business that was just getting started.
Lots of hours and a huge effort have been expended into documenting and standardizing the knowledge and best practices that the Founder had learned throughout his carreer, adding up the knowledge of the team, which were delivering outstanding results. Not only technical aspects, but also communication, collaboration, importance of hitting deadlines, organization, commitment and ownership.
That small group was able to keep the quality bar very high, so they started gaining momentum rapidly. Finally, the business had been given a name: 80 Lines. Because modern software should be developed based on small, atomic, scalable and decoupled components, compound together to build complex solutions.
