🚀 Our main goal is to build Cool, a modern framework for computer graphics software.
🛠️ In doing so we also develop many small libraries, independent of the big framework.
🎨 With this framework we build a generative-art software, CoolLab.
📖 We also document our process as much as possible and share our learnings on our website.
🤗 We support other open-source projects and contribute back to all the projects we rely on, either through pull requests or sponsorships.
👩‍🏫 We take on interns each year because we are happy to teach young developers and welcome new contributors.

The philosophy of our libraries is to be:
  • 🎁 Open-source
  • 🚀 Cross-platform
  • 😎 Easy to integrate into any project through CMake
  • 🛠️ Easy to build from source
