The service can include everything up to a full package of logo design, web site design, web content, custom development, domain registration and web hosting. We even do the odd business card and leaflet design!

Open Source Projects


PHPCI is a free and open source continuous integration tool specifically designed for PHP. You can find out more about it on the project web site, or on the Github project page.


Chill is a small and simple open source PHP library for working with CouchDb databases. You can find it on Github.

b8 Framework

b8 framework is a lightweight, simple framework for high-throughput PHP applications. It does not enforce a specific type of application, nor particularly an application structure, it simply helps you to build things.

We’ve used the framework to build web sites, APIs, and web applications, each handling tens of millions of requests a month. b8 framework was also used to build PHPCI. This project can also be found on Github.
