â€œSteve Burge started his business at the same time I did back in 2007. Over time, Iâ€™ve seen him struggle and succeed with different initiatives, but the following things were always constant: his honesty, business persistence, and true leadership in the Joomla! Open Source community. Weâ€™ve been a satisfied customer of ostraining.com since its initial launch and would highly recommend his work.â€
