what we know
With over 20 years of combined experience, we have the technical knowledge to recommend and develop cost effective, scalable, and robust solutions to your project needs.
We develop using the following languages and technologies:
Web Design and Application Development
Whether you need a simple corporate web site or dynamic web application development, we have the skills and experience to make your vision a reality. Using the most popular languages and systems available today, we can handle all jobs big and small— from creating completely new sites to upgrading or adding features and options to existing sites and web applications.
- Web Design
- Content Management
- Rich Internet Applications
- Custom Development in PHP, Ruby, or Python
- Information Architecture, Intranets, and Extranets
Utilizing application frameworks to speed custom development, our programmers harness the power of mature frameworks to bring your custom web application to life.
Symfony Framework Development
Symfony is a MVC web application framework for PHP5 projects aimed at building robust applications in an enterprise context. Allowing for full control and agile development, Symfony focuses on applicative logic without losing time to endless configuration. Best of all, Symfony is entirely free of licensing costs.
Portal Labs has been developing for Symfony for over two years, starting with v0.6. We've worked on Symfony projects both large and small including our own subscription based digital download delivery service, Digital Product Delivery.
Ruby on Rails Development
Rails is a full-stack framework for developing database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Control pattern. From the Ajax in the view, to the request and response in the controller, to the domain model wrapping the database, Rails gives you a pure-Ruby development environment.
Our Ruby developers can quickly develop and deploy your custom applications based on the Ruby on Rails MVC framework, or develop new features for your existing environment.
CMS / eCommerce Module Development
We develop custom modules and plug-ins for the most popular open-source CMS, Blog, and eCommerce platforms today. A few examples include custom subscription/account modules, FAQ plug-ins, and advanced document management tools for a range of sites and markets.
- Silverstripe CMS
- osCommerce / Zen Cart
- Magento Commerce
In addition to web development, our designers and programmers can provide a range of services to compliment your web offering. From flash video encoding services to custom marketing CD and brochure development, we can provide you with the marketing tools to bring people in to your site and improve conversions.
- CD / DVD Production
- Business Card CD Production
- Video Encoding / Embedding
- Custom Hosting Solutions
- Printed Materials
