Our deep development expertise spans the spectrum of reusable frameworks and Content Management System platforms. Our preferred langauge is PHP and the Laravel framework, but we have worked with other frameworks such as Lumen, Silex, Symfony, CodeIgniter, Yii and Zend Framework as well as Play (java) and Catalyst (perl). With respect to Content Management Systems, we prefer Drupal and WordPress but have done work in others as well. Our preferred database is MySQL or PostgreSQL.
We have expertise in open source CMS, e-commerce, and line of business web applications using PHP based frameworks and MySQL & PostgreSQL databases. We are advocates of open source, standing on the shoulders of giants in order to get to production with tried and true foundations to the solutions we build for you. This also gives you the peace of mind in knowing that there are large developer communities and therefore other devlopers familiar with the majority of your resulting codebase, should you choose to no longer want to work with us. We are not trying to trap you into having to work with us going forward.
We have been developing PHP solutions since 2002. You do not get much older than that in the PHP world and we have progressed through php3, PHP4, various versions of PHP5 and on to PHP7. PHP is our language of choice. We can help modernize your existing web application or custom build one for you. We prefer to use the latest version of Laravel (framework), October (CMS), Drupal (CMS) or WordPress (CMS), but we do have experience with other platforms as well.
Our web application solutions are based on a "responsive design" using the Bootstrap CSS library along with custom stylings. This is a mobile first development strategy that delivers a mobile friendly user experience across iOS, Android, and Windows mobile platforms as well as on modern desktop browsers. We find that most web presence solutions do not require a native mobile application and as a result, a responsive web applications saves money.

We undertake software development and modernization projects as Agile engagements. We work in cycles, typically a week in length, with the goal of producing deployable results at the end of each cycle.
The initial cycle is to assess your web presence goals and requirements allowing us to estimate project budgets and timelines. The outcome of this initial cycle is typically a document expressing the findings that will serve as a guideline and measuring stick for the rest of the project. This initial cycle also identifies, defines and prioritizes the most important features of your web presence. This exploratory process may take more or less time than a full cycle depending on the size and the scope of the project.
The remaining cycles involve the review of the identified feature requests (the backlog) in order to make any needed changes, additions or deletions and choosing those features that can be accomplished within the cycle. With this process, at the end of every cycle you are acutely aware of the progress of the project and can determine if you want to continue or not, thereby limiting your risk of being financially tied up in a project where you have no actionable feesbaxk regarding its progress.
With this type of process, you also have the comfort of knowing that the most recent additions/changes can be deployed at the end of each cycle, and that based on past performance you can guage feature estimates and have predictable timelines for each feature release as well as a resonable estimate of project completion.
