A short history of Chirp

Duncan Crombie is a founding partner and director of Chirp. He has been programming for close to 40 years with experience in database design, web development and open source software. Duncan built his first website in 1995 and has not looked back.

Chirp was founded in 1997 in Canberra by a group of friends and recent graduates from the Australian National University. The company gradually expanded while employing a number of graphic designers and programmers.

In 2003, Chirp relocated to Amsterdam, and in 2008 to Sibiu in Transylvania, a city with a fibre optic network and spectacular landscapes.
