  • Rich User Interfaces, HTML-based, CSS-styled, AJAX-driven,
  • Ruby and Ruby on Rails,
  • The principles and practices of Agile Software Development as described by the Manifesto for Agile Software Development and implemented by XP: customer-driven development, (talented) people first, just-enough processes, continuous integration, unit testing, iterative development.

Both company founders have a solid background in Java, MySQL, security (TLS, SSL, authentication, access control) and search engine technologies (Sphinx, Ferret).We're now fluent in Ruby and Rails
