Learn more about the people, who put their efforts into developing the Lift framework.

Lift is the most powerful, most secure web framework available today. There are Seven Things that distinguish Lift from other web frameworks.

Lift applications are:
Secure -- Lift apps are resistant to common vulnerabilities including many of the OWASP Top 10
Developer centric -- Lift apps are fast to build, concise and easy to maintain
Designer friendly -- Lift apps can be developed in a totally designer friendly way
Scalable -- Lift apps are high performance and scale in the real world to handle insane traffic levels
Modular -- Lift apps can benefit from, easy to integrate, pre built modules
Interactive like a desktop app -- Lift's Comet support is unparalleled and Lift's ajax support is super-easy and very secure

Read an overview of how Lift achieves these important goals.

Because Lift applications are written in Scala, an elegant JVM language, you can still use your favorite Java libraries and deploy to your favorite Servlet Container and app server. Use the code you've already written and deploy to the container you've already configured!
