An Italian engineer living abroad, happily employed by a large tech company, spots a new revolutionary technology rapidly gaining traction and decides to drop everything in order to "get in on it" by improving it.
This is a very hard problem to solve in an elegant and user-friendly way, as there are a lot of moving pieces to deal with. In fact, it's even too hard for us to want to solve ourselves! I have been advising Enrico for the last few months, and I see in him the right combination of talent, passion and determination needed to succeed.
I have asked him to write a little guest post here to introduce himself and Napkee to you. Enjoy!
Everything began last March when I wrote an email to Peldi saying that I wanted to do something more for Balsamiq other than being another evangelist. The idea of creating an exporter for Mockups was born after a couple of hours and I started to write code the exact same evening. At the beginning it was not called Napkee and it had a really creative name: Mockups Exporters. 🙂 It also looked great...
That big smile was - and still is - the effect that this project has on me. Time passed relentlessly and I spent almost every single minute of my free time on creating something that could be useful to a lot of people working in the UX field.
Fortunately today Napkee looks way better and it allows you to export to interactive HTML+JS+CSS or Flex prototypes in a matter of clicks.

The journey from that email to my micro-ISV seems quite long but I feel and hope that it's just the beginning of a bigger and longer one!
I'm pretty much excited, and you?
