History of Yireo

Yireo was originally founded through a Dutch company in 2008, but various developers left this company in 2011 and started Yireo as an independent company. Since then, the company size of Yireo has remained small, but various 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, 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. In 2014, the move was made to focus on training and education, starting with a book Programming Joomla Plugins written by founder Jisse Reitsma.
