What People Are Saying

Ted Bendixon
June 21st, 2018
Friendly and chill team to work with. Developers are top-notch, fun to talk to, and don’t take themselves too seriously. You’ll definitely work a full-time week, and if you want to do more, you can. You are encouraged to keep your own hours and manage your time yourself. You’ll never be told which hours to work. There’s just an expectation that you’ll contribute and be there when your team really needs you. Great pay, professional culture, enjoyable conversations, remote. What more could you want?

UX Design – Protecting your ROI When building a house, steps must be taken to ensure the final product matches the envisioned design, stays within the allotted budget, and doesn't take longer than expected. The way an architect creates detailed specifications and blueprints enables builders to seamlessly bring projects to life while mitigating potential issues and overruns. In software development, the same principles should apply when thinking about constructing any application. UX (User Experience) Design has become a critical step for software development by maximizing both budget and resources while simultaneously delivering a high-quality product in a timely manner.

Many web applications use a middleware layer to communicate data from the database to the user interface and that middleware layer is commonly a web service, or API. Having this additional layer provides an additional opportunity for testing. Rather than needing to run all tests as time-consuming end-to-end tests, with this architecture tests can be split into components and most of the business logic and data can be tested at the API level. In this blog post we will look at a couple of open-source tools for testing APIs. Note that for purposes of demonstration I am using a simple…

Originally published on I don’t think there is a faster way to build a web app than firebase and ember. The awesomeness of Firebase’s real-time database, no server, no backend, instant deployment, hosting and user authentication makes it an incredibly productive choice. Ember’s conventions and best practices and incredibly productive CLI makes it an excellent choice for your front-end. Let’s see how fast we can get a working app together.

Your website or app is changing all the time. Technology is advancing at an increasingly rapid rate, so in order to stay current, you’ll often have multiple teams of developers working constantly to update features and optimize how things work. But no matter how much you change and update, it’s important that you remain “on brand”: that the basic user experience and user interface stay familiar to your users no matter how many updates you go through. How do you maintain that overall continuity with multiple developers? You need a style guide. Here are some tips for creating an effective…

Given all of the intensified attention to security issues these days, it's surprising how often application security is still neglected. To be clear, in-house app dev is a top priority for companies and app testing has never been neglected. But that testing overwhelmingly focuses on functionality—does the app crash? Does a right-click on the blue icon deliver the desired action?—rather than security. Why is that? Like almost everything else in security, the blame falls mostly on C-level executive priorities. The CEO and other C levels are relentless in pushing delivery dates. That is reflected in general instructions as well as…

Your app needs an overhaul. The user interface is outdated and clunky and needs to be redesigned. And doing it right will take time, talent, and other resources that all add up to money. This is why a lot of companies are reluctant to update their designs. They see what it will cost them to do so and immediately run for the hills. But like anything else your company spends money on, UI redesign is an investment. And UI, in particular, is one of the most important and potentially profitable ones. It’s estimated that every dollar spent on UI redesign…
