Philosophy

We believe that the development of software programs requires the personal, creative and intuitive component of the developer.
This combined with experience leads to the development of high quality products.

From this philosophy, KOAN was born in 1996.
In Zen philosophy, a koan is a problem constructed with care and ingenuity specifically to induce the observer to realize the limits of logic and reasoning and to highlight the importance of intuition.

Who is master in the art of living 
draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play,
his mind and his body,
his labor and his leisure,
his education and his recreation,
his love and his religion. 
He simply pursues his vision of excellence 
through whatever he is doing, 
and leaves others to determine 
whether he is working or playing. 
To himself, he always appears to be doing both.
