History of Yireo

Yireo was originally founded through an existing Dutch company in 2008, but various developers left this company in 2011 and started Yireo as an independant company. Since then, the company-size of Yireo has remained small, but numerous freelancers now make up the Yireo team as well.

While Yireo started as a tutorial-club in concept, its focus moved to extension-development after releasing a first draft of MageBridge in 2009. Since then, whle MageBridge still forms the major part of Yireos development work, numerous other Joomla! and Magento extensions have been released. Since late 2012, the Yireo portfolio has also been expanded with custom services to aid webdesigners and webdevelopers in their work.
