About Oktogon

Oktogon is your partner for individual project development for electromechanics, software and electronics.

My enthusiasm for electronics aroused in an electronics working group at school. During my studies the first video consoles came up. That interested me and so I came to computers. In that phase of my life I could not afford my own computer and so I built an own computer.

After finishing my studies I worked as software developer and have written software production machines. Later I wanted to work more individual and so I founded Oktogon.

In my opinion work should be fun and bring true additional value. Therefore we search always individual solutions that fit your demands.
