ILPT (I Love Personal Training)

The ILPT app is a mobile fitness coach & tracker as part of the successfull fitness programms by Julian Zietlow from Berlin (e.g. Das 10 Wochenprogramm and Size Zero). The app targets both native platforms (iOS + Android) as well as the web - all powered by one codebase written with Ember.js and Cordova. The initial development was done by our friends 5apps and Next Market Labs, who we supported in their effort from 2015 to 2016. For example with the offline-first features (powered by remoteStorage) and the internationalization for additional markets.

Skrill

Together with the great team from Skrill, one of the world's biggest online payment provider, we developed a number of new web products for private and corporate customers between the end of 2012 and the middle of 2014. We were involved in the development of the following projects: the new web frontend for Skrill's digital wallet for private customers, the new merchant portal for the management of credit card transactions, and a number of new integration solutions of credit card payment into web applications. Besides the technical implementation of their applications, we were also responsible for product desing & development, which allowed us to introduce our passtion for good products into the project.

Makerist

Makerist is an online DIY school from Berlin, which was co-founded by Axel Heinz, who we had successfully worked with before, during the development 9flats.com. Makerist is a classic startup kickstarting project, just how we like it: passionate founder with deep domain experience and a solid business model in a very dynamic market. Since the start of the project in the middle of 2013 the market has already grown immensely. From the beginning until 2016 we lead the technical development of the application. Today we are still supporting the inhouse developer team which we helpfed to establish.

The story about this project with many details and background information can be read in our makerist story.

In 2013 the Eurovision Song Contest took place in Malmö and this was the first time an official mobile app was offered to all music fans around the globe. During the events it could be used as second screen to get more information about the artists, songs and also to vote for an performance.

As software architects we designed and implemented a backend service, which handled the client authentication for the voting backend. Because of the limited time window people need to place their votes in, a major part of our work was to design and implement a fast and reliable infrastructure that works well with high peak loads.
