3 Years ago, Today, three guys with name Parvez Akhter, Nadim Tuhin, and Abu Huraira Bin Aman built Quix Page builder which changed the way of page building. From this little team Quix has now turned into a representation of Joomla website development.
Day by day the features and functionalities of Quix increased and now we are proud to say, 'Yes, we build Quix.' Quix has helped so many people to build their website by their own. Its not just only a page builder, its something more than that.
The Quix you are using today, is not built overnight. It took time and a lot of hard work. We spent sleepless nights in coding and developing Quix. Now Quix turns 3! Three years have passed since Quix was launched.
Let's see how Quix become what it is today.
