Composer changed things dramatically for developers. Building with packages and managing dependencies got exponentially easier when this brilliant tool came along. We love it so much, that our "creative crazies" decided to work up a bit of an homage to it. Hope you enjoy it!

And of course, npm (the Node.js package system) is as ubiquitous these days as just about anything. So the "creative crazies" here decided it was time to pay a little tribute to this way-cool-tool.
