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

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).
