h2. contact !<.466_portrait! email: [email]gaspard@teti.ch[/email] p(clear).   h2. why zena ? I started working on zena because I needed a flexible tool to manage my own websites and projects. Of course, I did not start with the intent to create a full featured CMS, the idea was just to ease some things that I found annoying in the tools I previously used. After a while, the tool started to become interesting and I decided I needed even more flexibility. It's at that time that I decided to add a templating language (see "":17) and started to wonder if this thing could actually be useful to other people. I also discovered that zena could be really interesting for designers. That was in early 2007. Since then, I worked hard to bring zena to maturity. h2. class << self I live in "Lausanne, Switzerland":http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=lausanne&ie=UTF8&ll=46.519658,6.632223&spn=34.433693,63.984375&t=k&z=4 with my wife and 3 kids. When I'm not hacking zena or busy with my family, I create shows. I wrote an open source patcher that I use for the technological parts of these shows called "rubyk":http://rubyk.org. And last but not least, I am trying to become a ?capoeirist?:capoeira by taking courses at the great "ACL":http://www.capoeira-lausanne.ch/.
