Here at Fruitbowl Media we love to develop web applications. Primarily PHP developers we can also build in other languages depending on the most efficient choice for the project at hand! Using frameworks such as CodeIgniter, FuelPHP, Zend, and Lithium we can develop beautifully crafted applications.
Being PHP developers sometimes means that you can only do the basics with HTML, CSS and JS but at Fruitbowl all of our developers and designers are fully update and can hand code these using the latest standards whilst still incorporating fall backs for older browsers so that if your clients are using older browsers - they still see a working beautiful site.
If you require a PHP based application we offer a fully 100% in house development process. We can work with all major PHP frameworks, including CodeIgniter, FuelPHP, Zend, Lithium and Laravel. We work in PHP5 OOP wherever possible, with complete test-driven development
PHP is the most widely used programming language in web applications. Many existing software packages are made in PHP, which means it's often the language of choice to extend or enhance an "off the shelf" product.
If a full custom application is not required we can offer an open-source CMS (content management system) using Wordpress.
WordPress originally started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes, WordPress is limited only by the imagination.
We can create themes and plugins for any Wordpress site and ensure that your site is future proof by keeping 3rd party plugins to an absolute minimum and making sure that the code you get - is yours and works! Don't be fooled by some developers who purchase a theme, install as many plugins as possible and tell you it all works. On the front it will look good for a while - but then you will run in to trouble which can be costly to fix.
We always say - "if it's worth doing - it is worth doing right" (and a few others - "measure twice, cut once"; "buy cheap, buy twice" and so on).
Make sure your project is what you require - not what a development team want! We make sure your specifications are met using the right tools available to ensure your project is clean, efficient and most importantly beautiful.
