We offer a wide range of web development services, both on the front-end and on the back-end. Our skills span across multiple technologies and programming languages and it would be difficult to list all of them on a web page. We constantly improve our skills and we keep up with the latest advancements and best practices.

If the project you have in mind  requires technologies that are not listed on this page, please contact us and we’ll see how we can help you.

Back-end web development

The back-end web development generally refers to the development of the functionality that happens on the server-side and is returned to the user as a pre-rendered web page or as an API for an application.

Usually the back-end handles the authentication, database management, integration with third-party services, data processing, mailing, image processing and other intensive programming that would be too costly to run at the client level, especially when the client is a mobile web browser. Also the back-end ensures that the sensitive data like passwords, third-party secrets or credentials are not leaked to the client.

The most popular back-end programming languages are PHP, JavaScript (Node.js), Python, Ruby and Go. PHP is by far the most popular, but for the others, the order is debatable and sources contradict. It’s especially difficult to rank them by popularity exclusively on the back-end web development, since other than PHP most of them are used in other type of projects. For example JavaScript is also a front-end web language. Python, Ruby and Go are also used for automations and desktop applications, specifically under UNIX-based systems.

Our skills on back-end web development

We mainly focus on PHP web development and our lead developer has more than 10 years of experience with PHP. We also employ frameworks like Symfony, Laravel, Yii. Our back-end web development services cover the entire range of use-cases.

API development

With the rising popularity of the mobile applications, the API development demand also rose. The API is the server of the mobile app and it takes care of handling the database and processing the data to be nicely transmitted to and from the device. It also integrates with third-party services, like payment processors, push notifications and more.

Even most of the basic mobile applications require an API server if they have functionalities such as authentication, integration with third-parties or cross-device syncing.

We offer professional API development services for any kind of mobile or desktop application or for progressive web apps.

Website back-end development

Unless you want a static website that just displays some content that can only be edited from the code, you need a back-end for your website. It can be as simple as a CMS or more complex, like an online store, a marketplace or a classifieds website.

We build websites for our clients using the best fitted CMS for the job, or custom development in case a pre-made CMS is not the best solution for the project.

Front-end web development

The front-end web development refers to the functionality that a website has that is executed in the browser. This means dropdowns, modals, page transitions, media players and image galleries and much more.

The front-end development consists of mainly three things that interconnect:

  • the page structure, which is given by the HTML;
  • the page style, which is given by the CSS;
  • the interactivity and dynamism, which is given by JavaScript.

For JavaScript there are many frameworks and libraries that simplify the development, help developers create consistent behavior between browsers and provide standards and best practices. The most notable library, sometimes mistaken to a framework due to its complexity, is jQuery. jQuery helps developer write a single version of code that works the same in all major browser, not having to worry about the differences between the browsers’ APIs.

When it comes to frameworks, JavaScript is a pretty divided territory, with probably dozens of different ones. But the most well known and most used are AngularJS, React.js and Vue.js.

The CSS also has its own frameworks, called preprocessors. They are languages that help developers write more elegant and easy to maintain code, which is then “compiled” (processed) into standard CSS that can be read by the browsers. The most used are Sass (or SCSS) and Less.

We employ the latest technologies and best practices when it comes to front-end development, thriving to offer the best user experience for every website or webapp we develop.

Full-stack web development

When you combine the back-end and front-end web development, you get full-stack development. In the last few years the front-end development grew exponentially and the back-end was already expanding at a constant pace. This caused the developers to focus either on the back-end or front-end. In the early days or web, most developers were full-stack, but now the numbers are constantly dropping, many teams actively focusing on hiring specialized back-end and front-end developers instead of full-stacks.

The full-stack development has some advantages over the dedicated roles. One of the pros being that a single person handles the entire flow for a feature, thus reducing the amount of overhead caused by syncing with other developers. Also, when a bug occurs on any of the sides of the stack the developer can solve it without waiting for a third party. The main disadvantage of the full-stack developers is that they have to learn and keep up with multiple technologies and it’s extremely difficult to achieve expert level on all of them.

Our team offers full-stack services and although we are able to make use of many technologies, languages and libraries, we favor PHP and MySQL with either Symfony or Laravel for the back-end and Vue.js with SCSS for the front-end. If you want to know more about the reason we chose these technologies, drop us a message.
