Our talented developers possess the cutting-edge skills required to build best-of-breed web applications. We use our deep understanding of web technologies to make our clients' ideas a reality.
The growth of framework-based web development and open source UI libraries over the past five years has dramatically reduced the costs associated with implementing web-based applications.
The web has changed in profound ways over the course of the last five years. Users have come to expect that they will be able to interact with the sites they use as both content generators and content consumers. Increasingly, sites require more dynamic functionality such as integration with external services and networks and database-driven, on-the-fly content generation. At the same time, next-generation web development frameworks like Rails (Ruby), Symfony (PHP), and FLOW3 (TYPO3) have reduced the costs of developing powerful, customized web applications to the point where small- and medium-sized businesses can develop rich, dynamic applications for their intranets and extranets.
Delivering the increasingly complex web-based functionality that customers expect requires talented web programmers who understand the technologies that power the web.
As web technologies become more sophisticated and, increasingly, mission-critical, the role of the web developer has changed. Developing successful, modern web applications requires extensive knowledge of interface design, information architecture, usability, and user experience testing. For applications to scale properly over the long term, the development team should be well-versed in web technologies and best practices, including test-driven and domain-driven development, continuous integration, source code management and version control techniques, and object-oriented programming.
How do we do it? We hire the smartest developers in the room.
To meet the growing complexity of the web, we take special care to ensure that we hire only the most skilled developers. We seek out developers who have a firm grasp of the core technologies that power the web rather than a single subset of those technologies. Our developers follow strict internal development practices, carefully tracking all work in Git repositories, and obeying well-defined quality assurance and testing guidelines. Perhaps most important, because we encourage our developers to engage in one-on-one discussions with our clients, we find developers who are skilled at communicating well in addition to coding well.
