Tech stack

Our goal is to simplify and reduce as much as possible—we try not to start our days by downloading yet another new framework. We try to keep the IT debt to a minimum and do things properly the first time, instead of contriving hacky solutions just to meet a deadline. We strive to be independent and always critically evaluate if we truly need third-party dependencies in a project. We care deeply about security of our software and we follow secure coding practices.

In short: Simplify, reduce dependencies and get back to the basics.

As regards to tech stack, here are some of the Frontend technologies we use:

  • Basic web languages: HTML, CSS, vanilla JavaScript (not the framework)
  • Native Android and iOS
  • Git
