specializes in software
design and development on Linux and UNIX-like systems,
particularly web-based and client/server solutions:
UNIX since 1988 (Solaris, HP/UX, and IRIX),
and we've been running Linux at home since 1994.
All of our Open Source code was
Red Hat Linux
a number of modules to
the official Perl code repository (CPAN), including
the highly-rated MIME-Lite.
Our documentation was published in O'Reilly's
Perl Resource Kit.
We even teach a Perl course.
We have helped build enterprise systems using
J2EE/EJB3, and we have extensive experience with
JDBC, JNI, RMI, SAX/DOM, Swing, and servlet authoring
frameworks like Struts.
We even teach a Java course.
|C / C++
We've written numerous applications and reusable libraries
using nothing but pure C (and copious amounts of caffeine).
We excel at writing portable, POSIX-compliant
code, and can write bindings for higher-level languages
like Perl and Java.
||Since almost the beginning.
We cut our teeth writing web applications for NASA back in 1993.
We have detailed knowledge of
web protocols (HTTP, FTP, SMTP),
data formats (XML, X/HTML, Unicode, MIME),
and application hosting (Apache, Tomcat, OC4J).
||We're fiends about organization and consistency.
So you might not want to share a house with us... but you
definitely want us setting up your development,
test, and production environments. We've spent over a
decade developing end-to-end configuration management
systems for large, multi-language codebases.
We pride ourselves on being Jacks-Of-All-Trades.
Our design decisions benefit from years of experience with a
wide array of languages and tools. We know what's out there
and how to fit it all together. So we won't spend precious
time (and your money) re-inventing the wheel. If there are
stable, free components that can help solve your problem,
we'll find them, evaluate them, and adapt them to suit your
Whether you need help managing a system or designing a user
interface, we've probably done it - and sometimes we've done
it in our spare time in the wee hours of the night. Sound
crazy? Probably. But we're engineers. Building stuff
isn't just a job to us. It's serious fun.
