Solid

We build rock solid, scalable cloud-based apps to help your company react to change and more importantly, get ahead of it. We tailor the code and the work environment to your in-house team and skills. We build ultra-maintainable code using a documentation-first development methodology, alongside agile testing processes and tools.

Transparent

Our process is transparent so everybody knows what's being built, why it's being built, and how it's being built. Open source development in a good working environment leads to better software outcomes. Keeping a clean kitchen is crucial to us.

Results

From the first mock-up and through each iteration of the project, we aggresively focus on user experience. Involving the user in the development process is crucial to good results. Social coding isn't just about developers talking to each other. It's about developers talking to users and giving them what they need.
