At its core there are two aspects of our business that make for faster and more efficient startup development:
Our methodology is lean. If you are bootstrapping a startup (i.e.: paying for it from your own savings) we’ll help you with a strategy to validate your idea in the quickest and cheapest way possible.
If you’ve already validated your concept and are ready to go into full development then we can help too.
If any, or all, of these technologies mean nothing to you that’s ok. The majority of startup founders we work with are non-technical.
They bring disruptive ideas and clever insights into certain industries, or very clever distribution models to the table. We bring technical and strategic skills to the table providing the perfect foundations to launch and rapidly scale startups.
Here are some of the startups applications we've recently developed:
If you're a founder with an idea, Launch Lab should be the first place you visit. Bringing your idea to life is what they do. And it's all they do. No accountants, marketing people, secretaries. Every single dollar goes to your project. We considered several Sydney web development houses before settling on Launch Lab, and have been pleased every step of the way.
Python is a programming language, while Django is a Python web development framework. Django is a web framework that makes it easier to build web apps more quickly and with less code. It is used by some of the largest websites in the world including Instagram, NASA, The Washington Post and many more.
React.js was made by Facebook for use on their own platform as well as on Instagram. We’re early adopters in a rapidly growing community of React.js developers in Australia. React was built to solve one problem: building large applications with data that changes over time.
"Serverless" computing took enormous steps forward in 2016 with the launch of AWS Lambda in Amazon's Sydney datacentre, and the advent of tools such as Zappa.io and Serverless framework. Zappa.io is used in production by companies around the world, including banks and Fortune 100 companies. It allows us to combine the strengths of Django and the benefits of serverless computing to deliver affordable solutions to clients which can scale to the size of Twitter without skipping a beat.
The websites we develop, as well as the applications we build, are all hosted on Amazon Web Servers, the worlds leading cloud infrastructure provider. We tend to use AWS Lambda (Serverless) for most of our startup projects but are comfortable using EC2 / Docker too.
We've used responsive frameworks like Bootstrap and Bulma for minimum viable products and also have our own framework that uses Flexbox and CSS Grid as part of our front-end web development service.
All of our code is version controlled using Git with code repositories stored on BitBucket. If you're unsure of how this helps you as a non-technical startup founder, just know that the code is yours and can easily be accessed and transfered.
If you are planning on launching a startup or new web application for your company we'd love to hear from you.
