...what does "Pomfort" mean?
The name Pomfort has its origin in the adjective "pomfortionös" ( pɔm.fɔʁ.tsjo’nøːs ), a very rare German word used especially for delicious meals. The exact meaning - originally assembled from the French words bon and fortuné - is something between extraordinary and wonderful.
The name and the reference to food and cooking reminds us that creating software in a team is similar to the activities in a kitchen, where ten pots boil simultaneously and only attention and experience bring everything in time on the plate.
