Coding your web applications and software is a matter of trust. Leverage the astute project management and agile coding talent pool at COMMUNICATION ENGINEERS to make your development a success!
In modern communication technology, rendering information to be available over any distance requires processing of that information in computer code. “Code” is short for “Programming Language”.
The team at COMMUNICATION ENGINEERS facilitates and streamlines the transfer of information between people and organizations in all languages. To facilitate this transfer between human users, a minimum of 2 man-machine interfaces, and one or multiple machine-machine interfaces will be involved. Each interface requires translation between code, languages, symbols, images which humans understand and/or which allow data to be submitted to, understood and processed by the counterparty.
In today’s industrial landscape, several key areas of programming, or coding domains, may be identified:
CORE CODING DOMAINS
Websites are naturally coded in the standard web programming language: HTML (now in version HTML5), as complemented for style, presentation and a degree of browser-based functionality by CSS (now in version CSS3).
CMS (Content Management Systems, e.g. WordPress) use databases for on-demand processing of user requests, relayed via PHP, a server-based scripting language enabling dynamic website functionality through the internet connection, and executed on the hosting server.
Project management and recruiting of the respective talents in each coding domain for production within one web development project is where COMMUNICATION ENGINEERS excels in meeting and exceeding our clients’ expectations.
Our team of PHP programmers for hire stands ready to take on the most demanding database-driven web applications (websites, intranet) to move your business forward.
Web application programming
Web applications, known as “apps”, have become a vital marketing and customer-retention tool and serve to greatly extend the functionality of devices, websites, networks, communities, and software. One of the key features of an app is to accommodate intermediate cut-off from an internet connection on a mobile device, and continue serving functionality during such intermission using data downloaded while the network connection had been established.
Objective-C is part of the Apple development framework and fully integrated into all iOS and MacOS frameworks. It’s counterpart in the world of Microsoft is C#. Like C++, these have been derived from the original C computer programming language.
Before the advent of the internet, device-based software had already reached a very advanced degree of development. The procedures for device-based software engineering are well-established, and the challenge today is efficient management of devices via a network (intranet/internet). Numerous programming languages abound, designed for device applications, firmware, specific operating systems, etc.. For web-based operability, interfacing between different programming languages is frequently an essential part of functional requirements.
Software development is a discovery process, now based on best practice of “agile”, and “lean” software development. COMMUNICATION ENGINEERS is able to leverage a unique combination of expertise and talent to be your custom software development company.
IoT, the “Internet of Things” (IoT) has been heralded as the greatest leap into the technological future now pending widespread implementation. Connecting anything from refrigerators to HVAC, and home security systems to the internet, manageable via a smartphone app, is a dream of electronics giants the world over. The advantages in terms of customer leveraging, and customer retention, are obvious. But for the concept of IoT to be fully successful, an integrated cross-platform approach seems most promising.
Traditional banking is on the way out. This fact has been embraced by the world’s banking giants, who are hiring programmers in droves to test and implement a variety of smartphone-based FinTech applications. Indeed, the African continent is well ahead of the rest of the world in these developments. Without a traditional banking infrastructure to rely on, most Africans do their banking simply by mobile phone, with mobile carriers doubling as banking service providers.
But the future may well belong to new players in the realm of monetary exchange. Blockchain technology pioneered by Bitcoin is a harbinger of what is to come. In addition, individuals are less inclined to entrust their investment activity to investment professionals, and want to take direct and immediate action on market developments themselves. Placement of funds in speculative and Forex markets is making inroads into private banking domains. Smartphone-based FX and day trading is no longer being regarded as a form of gambling, but a legitimate form of participation in the markets side by side with the big players.
In addition, we are able to leverage unique expertise and relationships in the programming of dedicated FX trading applications in MQL4, the coding language of the well-established FX trading platform MetaTrader4. Likewise, Murex is being embraced as a coding framework for trading in all financial markets. Most importantly, clients can opt for payment transfers using Blockchain technology, which in the case of Bitcoin are secured against monetary inflation – a key sales argument for internationally operating FinTech-based banking service providers in years to come.
ANCILLARY AREAS OF EXPERTISE
In addition to the above-referenced core coding domains, a web, application or software development project entertained by prospective clients will be enhanced and facilitated by these ancillary areas of expertise and implementation offered by COMMUNICATION ENGINEERS:
- Offshore Software Development
- Software Localization
- Multilingual Software Documentation
- Project Management Expertise
- Talent Pool
- Programmer head-hunting
Offshore Software Development
Offshore custom software development, also known as offshore custom software engineering pertains to the production, and maintenance of software using technologies and practices of information technology, project management, mathematics, engineering, QA and UI testing, and other areas of expertise.
Like other traditional engineering domains, software development processes are governed by cost and reliability requirements. Any functional requirements for a software engineering project will focus on five key aspects: strategic fit, evaluation of options, aspects of marketability, commercial viability, and achievability.
Offshore software development is frequently commissioned for product design and architecture, coding and testing, development of SaaS, Internet/Intranet solutions, E-Commerce, CRM, project management and other special web-based services, including solutions for Web 2.0.
COMMUNICATION ENGINEERS is your “offshore” software development company, only a phone call away. We answer in crystal-clear English, and our processes eliminate any obstructive intermediaries, and do away with layers of subcontractors. We talk directly to the people doing the actual programming, who are accountable to us directly in terms of specifications, milestones, NDA, QA, and fulfillment.
Software Localization & Multilingual Documentation
In addition to management of the actual software development process, COMMUNICATION ENGINEERS is uniquely positioned to offer software localization, furthermore help files authoring & translation. Rather than treating these processes as detached and subsequent production processes, we are able to fully integrate the documentation & localization with the software production process. This increases cost-efficiency, time to market, and most importantly quality. Communication between production teams is direct, immediate, and without middlemen. As with all processes managed by COMMUNICATION ENGINEERS, the entire production is managed under one roof and served to our clients from one hand.
Project Management Expertise & Talent Pool
Emphasizing personal acquaintance and relationships eliminating middlemen, COMMUNICATION ENGINEERS draws on a talent pool well-versed in all the world’s programming languages:
Talk to us about your programming needs. COMMUNICATION ENGINEERS may act as the general contractor, guiding you from milestone to milestone at a steady pace in the agile discovery process of coding and software development. “Lean” software development gains an altogether new meaning when managed by us: our processes reduce friction, cut out middlemen (and their margins), enhance communication between domains and disciplines, promote quality and best practices, and save our clients time and money.
We pride ourselves in astute programmer recruitment by building and maintaining face-to-face relationships with curated talent in all major coding domains.
