Fresh from the Blog

Four Kitchens celebrates their 8th year anniversary

Back in 2006, there were only four of us working out of a cheap apartment in Southeast Austin. Half of us were still in school. We had only a few hundred dollars in the bank, and we were making WordPress and MediaWiki sites for free to build our portfolio. Our first paid gig was a $300 blog that took us two weeks to fully design, build, and deploy.
