Software development

According to recent research more than 30% of all software projects are canceled. More than 70% from the rest don't match requirements. In ItPlace we use SCRUM – set of rules and recommendations how to lead projects to successful end. Thanks to SCRUM our clients are part of the team, always know the state of application developed and gets it time exactly what they required.

It is impossible to close yourself with a product specification into an office for two months and after that deliver final product. It is high probable that such product would not match client requirements. ItPlace takes pride in using agile approach. We commnicate with a client very often, he is part of the team. Development is splitted into relatively short time periods – iterations and resut of each is functional product which can be demonstrated to the client. This way it is simpler to react on mistakes and misunderstandings and finish the product in time.

Testing of our code is matter-of-fact. We use source versioning control systems (Perforce, SVN, CVS). Thanks to continual integration is the quality of our work easily measurable and visible.

Technology

We specialize on web applications development in Java or PHP languages. We participated on development of several high-traffic community portals and we have experience with social networks integration.

We don't try to create generic framework. From our own experience we know that often generic and reusable solution is not 100% generic and reusable. We try to learn from our previous projects and we build base of templates, prototypes and design patterns which we apply in our next projects. Thanks to this approach our solutions are clear, tailored exactly to requirements and they doesn't contain useless code.

Java

We have 6 years of development of complex J2EE applications behind us. Most of them were community portals thus application processing high values of information and serving high number of concurrent requests.

  • J2EE: Servlet API, JMS, JMX
  • Servers: Sun Glassfish, JBoss, Tomcat, Resin
  • Frameworks: Spring, Hibernate, Jboss Cache

PHP

We user PHP on simpler applications with lower needs on quantity of processed data and concurrency. We have more than 8 years practical experience with PHP. Typical applications we developed using PHP are e-shops and CMS.

  • Zend Framework
  • Drupal

Databases

  • MySQL
