We specialize in the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) environment.
Our framework of choice is CodeIgniter.
We offer a lightweight CMS (Content Management System) which has a WSIWG interface and enables content to be displayed in page sections to be altered without the services of a web developer being necessary. If a more comprehensive CMS solution is required, we'll integrate with the CMS of your choosing.
Most of our projects are implemented using the following technologies:
- APIs - Google Maps, Mixpanel, Postmark, Twilio, Zend, many more...
- Dynamic HTML
Our preferred environment is LAMP with the CodeIgniter framework but we are versed in other environments and programming technologies
We are experienced building scalable environments and are well acquainted with cloud hosting.

It's surprising how many site developers don't really understand the basics. We are well versed in best practices and design our systems with security in mind. Make certain whoever you hire for your project does the same.
