From analysis and architecture through to design, coding, testing and deployment, we provide expertise at all levels of application design including database design, business logic, integration, UX and UI.
Our development time is bootstrapped using frameworks including JQuery, Microsoft MVC, WCF, WPF, CodeIgniter, Flash/Flex, PureMVC, Modernizr and Masonry/960.
We utilise unit testing and deployment systems including PHPUnit, NUnit, Adobe Shadow, Team City and Phing to provide Q/A confidence and automation. Of course, this list isn’t exhaustive and we constantly update our skills in relation to new technologies.
And while we are passionate about following cutting-edge technologies, we are realistic about their business viability – so we conduct regular evaluations of new, exciting yet contentious technologies such as Silverlight, Node.js, NoSQL and cloud computing, for their suitability in real business-grade applications including support, community and life expectancy. Meaning you can be confident that when we recommend a business technology choice, it’s based on merit rather than hype.
We also believe that occasionally it’s worth pushing the boat out - even when the technology hasn’t quite yet landed. We are highly experienced in backwards and forwards compatibility techniques, including the use of polyfills, graceful degradation and progressive enhancement, which enables us to safely utilise new technology even before browser support has reached 100%.
