A collection of types, core language features and patterns I use daily and you should add to your collection.
You can be a startup, a company side-project, an individual, a non-profit organisation or something else.
At XPBytes we have (had) all types of clients and partners. Our B2B solutions are as scalable as our B2C solutions. It doesn't matter if you're an individual or established enterprise, you always get quality results.
You can be anything, such as web-applications, custom content management systems, specialised APIs, native mobile applications or something else.
We're not shy about trying something new; we're not limited to a specific outcome. We'll help you realise your software, regardless of what that may be.
The software you want use to realise may be a new, greenfield project, may exist as a tech demo, may have passed as a minimal viable product, may currently be in production or even be a legacy project.
At XP Bytes we've encountered clients that had not yet written a single line of code, as well as those with software that was already in production and used daily.
If your software already exists, or if you have certain requirements because the software must be integrated in an existing eco-system, you should not be worried. Because of the multi-disciplinary nature of those working at XP Bytes, most stacks will not be an issue.
Naturally, many have their favourite languages and technologies to work with. At XP Bytes there is a slight preference for the following:
- Ruby with or without Ruby on Rails
- .NET, but preferably without ASP.NET
- JAM stacks, without Angular
- Node.JS with TypeScript
