Even if you do nothing for them, half of your audience will come from outside of North America. If you do support them, there’s a whole big world out there. We can help you build solutions that will work for everyone, regardless of what language they speak, what time zone they live in, or what they think is the “one true way” to show a date or time.
Nobody wants their Ferrari to have a three-cylinder engine under the hood. Neither do you. Your project deserves to look as mind-blowingly awesome behind the curtain as it does on the surface. The difference will shine through in subtle ways everywhere.
You’ve seen the headlines. Security is a pressing and critical problem for modern software systems, especially on the web. What you haven’t heard yet is the terrifying reason why: most web developers have no better understanding of software security and hacking than you do. Secure systems begin with secure code, which is why you need guys who know how the hackers get in, so you can keep them out.
Fractions of a second matter to your users. They want this shiny new toy to be snappy and responsive. We understand system performance. We know how to cheat to make things faster than fast; we know how to keep that performance strong as your system scales for more users; and, we know how to improve the perception of performance, even after actual performance reaches real world limits.
The cloud is the latest buzz word in all shiny new things, but what does that really mean? Building for the cloud means that the system is built to scale. It means that when you are getting 1 million hits per day, your system was built by guys that have been there. It means that you get to sleep soundly at night because your system is redundant, and even if a node goes down, your system is still online, working flawlessly. It means that the only difference between 1 million hits and 10 million hits is some extra nodes, and it means that bringing those nodes online was trivial.
