Skill Overview

The following coding languages, operating systems and development tools are those in which TechWire has experience and is confident in working with.

Mobile Development

We use PhoneGap (with HTML5 and jQuery Mobile, though there are many options that we can use to suit the task best).

Note that using PhoneGap provides us — and you, as our customer, with a unique opportunity to develop robust mobile applications that span several popular mobile platforms. This framework allows development in HTML5 (HTML / CSS / JavaScript), while providing access to mobile devices’ native functions — e.g. GPS, Compass, Camera access, etc. Such approach results in single code-base across several platforms — saving a lot on development and maintenance time and cost.

The most popular platforms: iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, are supported, as well as many others. Of course, we test on all the required mobile platforms to make sure all the nuances are ironed out.

Web Development

HTML, JavaScript (including JQuery, JQuery UI), CSS.

Web-application development is our main experience. With backend implemented using MS SQL / Oracle and ASP.NET, the front-end work involved creating a lot of interactivity on the applications’ pages.

This includes grids, graphical charts, interactive dashboards, handling geographical maps, many kinds of reports and data-entry forms. It is amazing what can be achieved with web-technologies today, and we are glad to be part of this progress.

Summary

Here’s a brief overall view of what we use:

  • Web: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AJAX.
  • Mobile: PhoneGap (HTML5), jQuery Mobile, native code plugins.
  • Database: Oracle, MS SQL Server, MySQL, Access;
  • Languages: C#, Visual C/C++, Java, Visual Basic, Perl, ASP, PHP;
  • Microsoft .NET Framework (including good practical knowledge of ASP.NET);
  • Content Management Systems, such as Drupal, WordPress, Joomla, as well as lower-level frameworks such as ASP.NET MVC, PHP CodeIgniter etc;
  • Miscellaneous Technologies: XML, XSLT, COM+, ActiveX, SOAP, REST.

PPMLite announced

PPMLite finally enters free public beta stage, and, since it allows import of projects from Basecamp, there has been a corresponding announcement over on the 37 Signals’ site. More links and reviews to follow as the application gets more adoption.

PPMLite is a simplified project portfolio management tool developed by TechWire for CloudPatterns LLC.
