Qafoo is a software development consultancy and training company based in Germany. They specialize in providing expert services related to PHP and web application development, including code reviews, performance optimizations, architecture consulting, and test-driven development (TDD) coaching. Qafoo GmbH aims to empower businesses and developers by sharing their knowledge and expertise through training sessions, workshops, and custom solutions, ultimately helping organizations improve the quality and efficiency of their software projects.
With the foundation of Frontastic we slowly faded the operation of Qafoo out. Currently, the publically created content and open source software is still available, but there is no business executed anymore.
