After 20 years of building web technologies, we have seen just about everything from handling massive legacy migrations, to scaling systems for handling billions of requests per day, to producing the perfect responsive layout.
We help businesses tackle hard technology problems with intelligent, deliberate solutions — on time, and on budget. When we talk about value driven development, we mean that technology must be designed to add real value to a business. We do not build technology just for the sake of technology.
We believe that we should always be honest with our customers. We believe that communication with our customers should be frequent. We believe that we should answer the phone when the customer calls. We believe that deliverables should be small and frequent. We believe that technology decisions should be tested and measured.
These principles have enabled us to align our success with the success of our customers, which is why our customers continue to work with us year after year.
We build advanced backend solutions including new development, bug fixes, ongoing maintenance, and large legacy data migrations.
We use our extensive database and systems expertise to scale for high concurrency and low latency environments. This includes data access optimizations, server tuning, network tuning, and application level optimization.
We have extensive experience and expertise with backend testing whether that be unit tests, api tests, or full system tests.
We keep a strong expertise in all the new and old frontend technologies. So, if a project needs the state of the art, we can build advanced frontend interfaces using ReactJS or VueJS, Webpack, Bootstrap, SASS, and TypeScript or ES6.
However, for legacy projects or projects requiring a simpler stack, we still do plenty of work with the old staples like jQuery, server side templating, and CSS.
Modern web application development requires that we do not simply create code and technology for it's own sake. Applications must be built around the needs and experiences of the customer and the user.
We apply a careful, thoughtful, and deliberate process to creating a user experience and interface which best enables the customer and user to find value in our applications. Our mantra is design, build, test, iterate.
We leverage our expertise with AWS, containerization, various build tools, and industry standard testing tools to automate and monitor integration, testing, deployment, and infrastructure management.
Some of the tools we like include Docker, AWS Beanstalk, Jenkins, Selenium, PyTest, Jest, and PHPUnit.
A successfull project starts with the important questions:
How do define success? Who is the customer? How will we monetize? What are the concurrency needs? What are the uptime needs?
Once we have answered these questions, we work with you to put together a budget and a timeline. Then, we can allocate the appropriate resources to your project based on skill, cost, and availability.
We take security seriously. In modern web application development, good security must be baked in from the beginning. It cannot be added as an afterthought.
Whether we are creating a fresh new project, or maintaining a legacy project, we will try to constantly use best security practices per OWASP recommendations.
