Our uBurst Story
It started with a shopping cart. Actually it started with a few engineers working at Kennedy Space Center (aka Rocket Scientists) who had some extra time on their hands.
On July 14th, 1997 they formed a corporation known as Microburst Technologies, Inc. Initially the company's main revenue stream was generated by the consulting income from Space Center contracts.
Then (this is where the shopping cart part actually comes into the story) - one of the engineers - Bill Weiner - was asked if he could come up with a shopping cart for use on a newly designed website.
On October 1, 1997 the Beta version of uShop 1.0 was released.
uShopTM, a Java based shopping cart, became the first of a variety of uburst software products.
But we think it started with a shopping cart sounds better. :>}
