The Front End – It IS the User eXperience. @ Xtream, the front end is all about the User. We go beyond thinking about it as the User Interface or User eXperience. To us, the Front End encompasses User Behavior, User Psychology, User Preferences, User Devices…. we can keep on going. From a technology standpoint, this covers everything from how data is collected, to how data is visualized and reported. The technology stack of choice may differ, but certain factors remain constant. Design, form, and function dictate user interaction and the optimization of the technology underneath decides speed, volume, and overall maintenance cost.
Xtream IT doesn’t put a lot of stock into buzzwords and keywords. Although our developers have project expertise as .NET developers, Java developers, PHP Developers, and so forth, we pride ourselves in finding and leveraging engineers that have a passion for computer science and information technology, i.e. – hackers. Unfortunately, the word hacker has been hijacked to mean something negative at times. But in the development world, we all know that a hacker is someone that at his or her core, loves to play with technology. Their Github profile is more important to them than their facebook profile, and they find the scripting language they are most passionate about, and they build. They play.
For Xtream IT, the future of innovation involves optimizing the front end for mobile platforms, most particularly the Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Whether your code is rewritten as HTML5 and then pushed through a rendering engine such as Phone Gap, or the code is written natively in xcode or in the Android SDK, our engineers work hard to ensure that it is optimized to achieve its goals with respect to form, function, and design.
On the desktop, HTML, CSS, and anything in the Adobe suite, is standard par for the course. The java framework and popular current libraries such as jQuery or the .NET framework – we’ve got teams specialized in both. If your team prefers Perl, Python, or Ruby as their scripting preference of choice, we can engage the right teams because we get scripting. We’ve used Google Web Toolkit to provide particular solutions, as well as optimized on Google Sites. We’ve built APIs for dynamic content widgets and social media profile authentication. If your CMS choice is a PHP based Open Source solution such as Droopal, Joomla or WordPress, we can easily handle that. And the Apache projects, well, for hackers, that’s our playground.
At Xtream IT, customizing in the world of Open Source project implementations is our passion. We repeat, Apache is our playground. From Shindig and Rave, to Cordova (formerly Phone Gap), At Xtream IT, technology is our mission. Open Source is our pride. Coding and scripting is our passion.
