Areas of Focus
Training - professional, customized on-premises or remote training in our areas of focus. See the training page for more information.
Mentoring - customized mix of training and on-site or remote work directly with your team, helping them work through problems, develop solutions, and establish best practices.
Architecture - we work with you to create scalable architectures for entire systems or subsystems, develop best practices and standards, and help with development processes and tools (agile practices, version control, continuous integration, etc.). We also perform architectural and code reviews, and help establish coding standards.
Development - high-quality, unit/integration-tested, documented code built to meet your organization's needs. We are particularly familiar with developing core framework functionality, including custom UI components. Our developers can either augment your existing staff or build an entire application based upon your requirements.
Project Kickstart - initial scaffolding, tools, best practices, standards, plus architecture and mentoring (if required).
Troubleshooting - deep analysis of specific issues that are disrupting your project.
Performance Tuning - a holistic look at your application to determine where the bottlenecks are and provide solutions for fixing them.
