That's a great question. So Masonite comes from "Masonite board" which is what artists use to put their artwork on. it's like a corkboard basically.

I personally like to think of programming as a type of art form. Refactoring code, getting things right, making it maintainable etc is an artform that takes practice.

So if masonite board is where artists put their artwork on (like a painting) I wanted Masonite to be where developers put their artwork (their software).

So I called it Masonite :)
