Grupo Imaginación Cibernética (GIC), a software development company based in Mexico, agrees to acquire Cocoapedia’s brand and assets after winning the bidding on Monday, July 16th. Cocoanetics sought to sell Cocoapedia because it no longer fit the company’s focus.
The transition involves transferring the current contents to a new server, transferring the two domain names Cocoapedia.org and Cocoapedia.com as well as the matching Twitter account.
Daniel Salazar, General Manager of GIC, on the future of Cocoapedia:
We plan to keep making it grow. There are lots of information that we as developers need on the subject, specially, controls and source code you can purchase, like the ones you and others develop and which are a really great time saver on projects.
