MongoDB development It is one of the most popular NoSQL databases, find out why. Why use MongoDB?
MongoDB is a database known for being powerful and scalable - which means it's good to get projects up and running quickly, while foregoing some of the functionality that traditional relational databases provide. This doesn't mean loss of quality, it means shedding the stuff you can do without (when you can do without it).
We are registered MongoDB Partners. Being part of the partner programmer gives us access to MongoDB resources, training and support, improving the service we can offer.
We host the MongoDB Cambridge meet-ups. This is a friendly, informal meet-up with drinks and snacks where developers can discuss the database, troubleshoot, and take part in informative presentations.
If you are interested in attending, give us a call or email. There is no fee for joining the group and you can come as and when, depending on your schedule. We usually host the group on Thursday evenings. There are often MongoDB mugs, t-shirts, books and stickers up for grabs.
Eastpoint Software provides NoSQL, MongoDB Azure Database application development services. We are MongoDB partners which offers us access to MongoDB resources, training and support, always improving our knowledge and skills.
It's a new-ish technology that has enjoyed rapid growth and many success stories, thanks to ease of building, and scalability.
NodeJS is great for real-time web applications and developing data APIs. Like MongoDB, it is a fast and efficient database that allows for scalable development, so it can grow as your requirements do.
Every technology has it's benefits, NodeJS would probably not be the right choice for long and complicated processes.
We have lots of experience working with partner agencies to deliver expertise that are not available in-house.
Call us to discuss an outsourced project, we are experienced with the process and always treat outsourced work with the same high standards, just as if we were working directly with a client.
Our NodeJS Work:
Our use of NodeJS includes a product data search for a retail client and a portal for online gaming (also using AngularJS).
Another popular Jasvascript Framework that works perfectly with NodeJS and MongoDB.
Why chose AngularJS for web development?
Angular is used for rapid development of scalable web applications, with the intention that the efficiency of the database means you write less code, so projects take less time, and therefore more bang for your client's budget.
Like other new technologies, AngularJS is open source and has a tech community using and supporting it. This enables developers to troubleshoot, share and improve. This knowledge makes us more efficient, and provides cost savings to clients.
As well as being open-source, it was created by and is maintained by Google engineers, which hopefully bodes well.
Web apps with AngularJS:
Using AngularJS is a (relatively) quick, productive way of assembling apps.This ties in well with the agile way of working. This means that you work in sprints to deliver a working app in stages, early stages will not have all the bells and whistles required but what's there, will work.
This is to allow for flexibility during the build, which may mean getting a core product to market to test it out before you invest heavily in said bells and whistles, or allowing an internal business web app to be rolled out and used as early as possible.
Outsource AngularJS to us:
If you have an AngularJS requirement and don't want the hassle of recruitment, get in touch with us about outsourcing that part of the project. We have experience working with partners and agencies on software products. Call us on 01223 690164 to discuss what you need and how we can help.
If you're someone who has had an idea for a mobile app and would like to know more about the process and costs, hopefully this blog post will shed some light.
We work with non-technical clients as well as technology partners and agencies – this article is aimed at clients with little prior knowledge of how apps work in terms of the build, but have got a great idea from a user perspective that they want to see in action.
Cost and time:
Most developers will tell you something along the lines of 'how long is a piece of string' when asked how much a web app costs.
And of course, they're right, but it is possible to give a guideline. For any app, you are looking at thousands rather than hundreds. Most apps will take weeks to design, build and test, at least. You are unlikely to find much below £5,000 in terms of building a complete app, and that would be for a very simple one.
It is likely you will want to budget more than that, particularly if you have specific, potentially complex, requirements. The number of devices you want your app to be suitable for will also affect the cost.
Who builds it? Who designs it?
We are a tech and design company, so we can create all aspects of the app. A lot of app designers will take charge of the entire project – so writing the technology that powers the app, and designing the way it looks to the people using it.
We are happy to accommodate your design requests – whether that's us working on the technical development, you doing the design yourself, or providing us with the designs from somebody you already work with. Some companies will always want to do the design in-house, this is something to check.
What is the mobile development process?
If you are starting from scratch with a new app developer, it's likely you will first chat about and confirms your requirements. Once everyone is on the same page, the technical solution will be decided and the user interface designed, so you know how it will work from a user's point of view.
App development will then begin in earnest and once completed, full testing and QA is carried out. Once you sign off the app, it will be ready for you to use, sell, or look at in awe.
Maintenance of mobile apps and future work:
Your app will be good to go and often comes with a warranty for a specified time. However, software may need other updates in or outside of this time to keep it ticking over, or you may want to refresh your app in the future with new ideas, improvements or additions.
We can build you a fully-featured online shop, with a smooth, secure buying process and all the design and management options you need. We've been making eCommerce for more than a decade and can take care of everything, so you can get selling. Bespoke Design:
The details of what is needed for an eCommerce system vary from business to business. We can pretty much fulfil any request, giving you a bespoke online shop suited to your requirements, guided by our experience. Complete CMS options, blog posts, newsletters, offers, enhanced product pages, review features, product ratings, data APIs, image carousels - there are lots of exciting, engaging additions that can be integrated into a bespoke ecommerce website.
Responsive - buy on your Tablet or Mobile:
Lots of people shop on their mobile - don't let a confusing shopping experience that doesn't translate to the small mobile screen lose you a sale.
Creating a mobile-friendly shopping cart or eCommerce Website might mean adapting what you have, starting from scratch, or implementing it as part of a new build.
Secure payments and simple maintenance:
A beautifully designed and wonderfully intuitive website it just part of it. Customers want and need to know their payments are safe and secure and we always include this in our design.
After the build, and during content or product listing, having a simple administration or CMS system is also important. Our CMS systems are always built with this in mind, to streamline the process and save you time.
We take great pride in our eCommerce Platforms - we actually love the process of building an online shop, finding out about a client's business and we feel great satisfaction when we can deliver something that is so important and successful to our clients.
The big trend that we've noticed recently is about enhancing user experience - in particular on mobile - for example a lot of clients are looking for responsive versions of websites, and that includes eCommerce.
It's something that we can readily recommend. More people are shopping with mobiles, it makes good sense."
