Authors of Agile Toolkit

The Agile Toolkit exist because of the continious effort by two of it's main authors. Romans Malinovskis is inventor of original concept and have been enhancing the toolkit throughout the decade. Dmitry Malinovskis (a.k.a Mayack) is a designer of Agile Toolkit's interface. Only as a collaboration between a developer and a designer, Agile Toolkit was able to gain it's User Interface components.

Romans

"My obsession with Object-Oriented programming has begun when I was 15. I have programmed in Object-Pascal and Turbo Vision, early Windows Objects and have built my own Object-Oriented environments for games and point-and-click user interfaces."

Mayack

Mayack is a bleeding-edge web designer, who would work hard just to get rid of unnecessary <div>s in HTML source. Being huge fan of new CSS3 and HTML5 he have joined development of AModules2 framework in 2004 and also participated in many commercial projects developed with the framework.
