Get to market fastercheaperand with less risk
We build next generation mobile experiences for your business. Every ounce of our energy is spent getting your application in the hands of your customers so your business can advance without friction.
The web has proven to be the platform that stands the test of time. By building your mobile experiences with open web technologies, you will ship sooner, iterate more rapidly, reach more people, and deliver superior mobile experiences than your competition. Don’t get locked into complex and proprietary development environments that are out of your control.
Building applications for specific devices is a path to insanity and a thing of the past. Every day new devices with different screen sizes and resolutions are coming onto the market. This makes your application difficult to develop and expensive to maintain. Building your application so it responds gracefully to devices of all sizes will have you focusing on solutions for your customers rather than mechanisms for all the devices.
Every great application is built on a first-class API. Those who treat their API as an afterthought are destined to treat their users that way. By making your API simple, secure, and designed with future changes in mind, you will give your users a superb experience regardless of the device you reach them through.
Leveraging existing cloud services enhances your users experience and dramatically reduces your cost. Perhaps it’s sending SMS through Twillio, file backups on Amazon’s S3, or interfacing with your application with Dropbox. Regardless of your needs, there is likely a service that can help you move quicker and with less risk. Embrace the advantages that todays internet offers.
Whether it’s contributing code, reporting bugs, or fostering your own project, the advantages of leveraging and contributing to the open source community are undeniable. Don’t be a relic of the past and ignore the amazing opportunities that free and open source brings. Having troubles getting started? Contact us today and we will help you move forward.
You are likely to find us at a local meetup such as VanJS or the Vancouver Erlang Group. We also organize the Node Brigade. If you have a talk idea or would like us to speak at your event, please reach out to us.
PhoneGap was invented and first authored by Chloi founders Brock Whitten and Rob Ellis, along with Eric Oesterle at iPhoneDevCamp 2. Renamed as Cordova, the project is now thriving as part of the Apache foundation.
After PhoneGap was created it was quickly realized current DOM manipulation libraries were not sufficient under the constraints of mobile devices. Championed by Rob Ellis in 2009, XUI remains a go to tool for many applications and laid the foundation for alternatives such as ZeptoJS.
Dbox is a NodeJS SDK for the official Dropbox API. It abstracts the irrelevant detail of speaking to a REST API while exposing the bits that are important, such as status code and body.
