Come help us build custom digital applications.

We are a Westshore-based group of talented designers and developers devoid of heavy corporate structures, approval processes and tight boundaries. Noted by our clients as giving that “little extra”, we seek to ship customized solutions, build sustained client relationships and deliver strategic counsel with zealous service.

Looking for a no-politics zone to do your best work? Mercury is the place for you.

What kind of projects will you work on?

  • Web, native mobile and collaboration applications for the Southeast’s fastest growing commercial real estate firm
  • iOS and Android applications for Fortune 50 consumer products field workforce
  • Internal business applications for a national-scale sports organization
  • Data dashboards, drill down business intelligence reports and mobile reporting for global professional services firms

It all starts with the web.

If there is one platform we are most rooted in, it’s the web – modern responsive techniques are our stock in trade. If you know these technologies, you can make it anywhere.

It all starts with clean, semantic, standards-based markup. Local storage, geolocation and native media players are some of our favorites.

Separating content from presentation with judicious use of SASS use (mixins, partials and variables) keeps our UIs robust. And BEM’s not so bad, either.

Bundlers and transpilers like WebPack and Babel support our use of the latest JavaScript and versions of React, Angular and Knockout libraries.

Data makes the world go ‘round.

Robust data layers go a far way in these parts – without them we just have websites, not web applications.

SQL Server, whether on prem, installed on IaaS VMs or consumed via SQL Azure provides the hearty data storehouse we need for scalability and rapid querying.

It’s not all about SQL Server if you want to get relational with it – MySQL definitely show up around the Mercury shop, too.

We have much love for Structured Query Language but NoSQL is cool, too. And there’s nothing like Mongo for a document database, if you ask us.

Application and services layer bring data to the surface.

Application code, service layers and even middleware are big parts of what we do around here. We like to keep the business logic clean and separated and our services RESTful.

C# and the .NET Framework are old friends of ours – while not as trendy as the JavaScript frameworks it’s hard to do better when you need to roll business logic, marshal data or automated processes.

WebForms and ViewState are history – you won’t find them around here. But if you want to roll with .NET then MVC is your friend – and it’s good for JavaScript development, too.

Ya, we went the WCF route. Then we simplified with WebAPI and never turned back.

Low overhead and thin requirements – there’s a lot to like about Node. And there’s nothing like being able to share JavaScript between the data, application and interface tiers.

This is how we roll.

Words about what we use systemically.

Distributed version control for the win.

Build, integrate and push to testing, staging and production environments on every code commit.

Deploy to the cloud.

Test every key function of the application on every release so you know you’re not pushing out regressions.

Collaborate Directly in Microsoft Teams

Many organizations rely on SharePoint as a collaboration and secure file storage platform. Great news – SharePoint is highly integrated into Microsoft Teams. From your channel in teams you can click the Files tab to share files via SharePoint or access SharePoint files already shared to your channel(s). Team members can easily collaborate on files shared to a channel using Office Online or an Office desktop app.

Creating a Multi-Stage Pipeline in Azure DevOps – Pt 2

Welcome to the second post in the series Creating a Multi-Stage Pipeline in Azure DevOps! In the last post we started creating a yaml based pipeline and set up the build. From the end of the last post there are two paths that can be taken to start deploying code – the Releases UI in Azure DevOps or continuing to add stages to the yaml. Both are viable options and we have been using Releases since its creation, however, in this post we are focusing on keeping the pipeline in code.

Bookmark Content with Microsoft Teams

In many organizations, there’s a constant stream of information moving through Teams at any time. It can be difficult to track down an important message you want to reference later on. The solution – bookmarked content.
