The renowned cellist Yegor Dyachkov came to us asking for a CMS for his new website. So we created a simple, Sinatra-based (programmed in Ruby), CMS that makes it possible for him to manage all of his site’s content.

The excellent graphic designer Susan Scott created the mockups for Julie to integrate into the website, using HTML5 and CSS3 code.

The result is an elegant website that features the music of a master cellist. We really hope you will enjoy this piece.

Open source
