featured work we can show (without NDAs)

  • Go.co Domain Suggestion Tool

    We were contracted by CoInternet to build them a cutting edge domain name suggestion tool for their .CO TLD. This project uses Ember.js to deliver a single page application. All of the UI elements are bound to the same data model and interact with one another. The MySQL database is heavily optimized to support querying of well over half a million curated domains. The domain availability checks are done via several cronjobs targeting high frequency starting letters, ending letters, bigrams, trigrams, and dictionary words. check it out ›
  • ReTargeter Insights V2

    ReTargeter is a platform allowing clients to build, monitor, and optimize retargeting campaigns. We re-developed the application from the ground up due to the prior application lacking in terms of speed, responsiveness, functionality, and stability. Much of our project focus was on optimizing the process of reporting data retrieval and caching of externally retrieved API data. We were also responsible for very customized Recurly subscription billing integration and handling to meet client requirements. check it out ›
  • Ruck.us

    Ruckus set out to disrupt the two party political system via collective action. We underwent several ideation processes to hone in on exactly how Ruckus could deliver on it's goals. Ultimately we built out a platform for creating politically charged questions and answering questions asked by others as well as creating "rucks". We built a custom social authentication system supporting Facebook and Twitter via popup modals with generic email signup fallback. check it out ›
  • Sweet Briar History Database

    The focus of this project was to design a database and supporting CRUD system for managing historical data of African Americans. The project goal is to be able to take the entirety of the database relations and begin matching pieces of data to individuals to generate richer biographies and family trees. Much of the data is pre-emancipation when legal names may not have existed on record. This site has advanced fulltext searching across every major table column and an extensive custom pagination class.
  • coreyballou.com

    This website is a cesspool of technologies: PHP 5.4, Kohana 3 MVC framework, CSS3, HTML5 pushState + history, Backbone.js, responsive design, and all sorts of other UI gems. It's a demonstration of some of our capabilities. We also custom built our own messaging client (live chat) using AJAX, PHP daemonized processes, and XMPP for connecting with visitors live via our Google Talk account as a proof of concept.
  • mofollow

    Mofollow is a utility we built for helping users expand their twitter network by finding new people their friends have in common. It was developed prior to the release of Twitter recommendations and we believe it still does a better job. It uses MongoDB for session management via a custom session handler we wrote and open sourced. We highly recommend you check it out for yourself. check it out ›
