When you see a website you might think "Ah, but that's only some text with graphics thrown in"
Our work can be just that, but more often than not we do so much more.
For smaller sites we might just write some text and add some nice graphics to make it look nice.
Apart from this we also customize the look and feel of the webpage so that it will load quickly and use minimal bandwidth when it's loading.
Most customers know nothing or very little about the technologies behind the scenes and we do not force them to learn anything they won't have use of later on.
For this reason we ususally add secure login functionality with administrative rights to be able to modify the text (and sometimes more) of the webpages we've created.
Depending on the experience of the customer we adapt each admin-interface to that it fits the experience level of the user.
For other customers we integrate the website to their exisiting backen systems to be able to display dynamic content.
It is often the case that we build the backend systems as well, but it all depends on the specific needs of our customers.
In the instances where we build backend systems it usually fall into one of these three categories:
- adding a MySQL database to display dynamic content on the webpage or hooking into an exisiting database to display live data from some other system
- integrating with web-services from either the customer or from third party suppliers of data streams
- integrating with automated backend systems which generate dynamic data at regular intervals
Web technologies we use
We specialize in web development, mostly using LAMP
We do anything from plain HTML to PHP, JSP (usually on Apache Tomcat) and sometimes even C# (using .Net on Microsoft IIS).
We are familiar with both the Prototype and the jQuery libraries (which offer much of the same functionality, but we've almost exclusively moved on to using only jQuery).
We are also experienced with jQTouch for iPhone webapp development.
Our projects use CSS for almost all designs which makes it easy to change the desgin in the future if one so wishes.
Ajax requests are commonly used to allow pages to load faster or to load dynamic parts of webpages.
We use both JSON and XML (depending on the circumstances).
Other technologies we use
Apart from the actual coding of webpages we are also skilled in network technologies.
We are used to configurating the web servers when needed (Apache HTTP, Apache Tomcat, Microsoft IIS and more).
We are also familiar with firewalls and other common problems related to Ajax, backend system access and NAT, DHCP, DNS among other.
What do we offer, costs?
Simly put, you tell us what you want and we'll give you an estimate.
Our services include all of the above on a consultancy basis (hourly rates).
We prefer to only accept coding assingments.
Writing texts for your site and creating graphics is something we do help with but prefer would come from you.
Since we are located in Stockholm we hope you are to.
We can meet up to discuss the project and then later on review progress at regular intervals (once every week/two weeks).
We do most of our work remotely from our offices, but when necessary we can somtimes work at your location for short periods of time.
Network configuration, helpdesk support and other service configurations are sometimes acceptable but can only be offered at higher rates.
What you should/need to think about
If you have a concept or an idea for a webpage we can help you develop this into a final product.
The more you come prepared the less time it will take (=less cost for you).
Texts and graphics are normally supplied by you or your company, we can assist you in this but that will also require more time (=more cost).
If you're only interested in discussing your idea (to help you make decisions on the best approach to move forward with you exisiting product or site) we can assist you as consultants (hourly rates including travel expences when necessary).
