Websites and Web Applications that make the difference


Putting user experience first from the start

 

Website Development

We’ve developed websites for everyone from small startups to multi-billion dollar enterprises. Delivering intuitive, mobile responsive designs that takes the user on an easy-to-follow journey to what they are looking for. 

Our custom website development solutions are designed to solve real-world business problems and bring businesses closer to their customers. This is your digital shop window, after all, it’d better be good.

Web Application Development

Building engaging web applications takes a team with in-depth experience in getting the most from web platforms. We’ve developed multiple enterprise-level web applications that have incredible UI/UX, robust architecture, and leverage industry standards in frameworks and principles to ensure a premium end product. We’ve developed web apps that are used by millions of people a day, so we know what it means to focus on the needs of the end-user and deliver an experience that not only meets but exceeds those needs.

Our team of 20+ designers, developers and product managers have seen it all. With skill-sets developed over years and on the most niche and specialist jobs, from startup apps to million dollar plus DevOps projects.

Web App Front End Development

Responsive and Aesthetic UI

When building out web applications, we choose to go with the tried and tested React framework. Also referred to as React.js or ReactJS because it revolves around using the very popular javascript language.  We’ve built a lot of web apps in many different languages and frameworks, but time after time we go back to React because we believe it’s the best way to build web apps.

We pride ourselves on being the premier, go-to company for building interactive, aesthetic, engaging, and high-performing React-based web pages.

Set up a meeting and get in touch with one of our Product Strategist if you are interested in learning more about why we choose React as our go-to way of building web apps.

 

 

 

Web App Backend Development

The brains of your application

It’s one thing to make a visually appealing front end, but what are the “brains” behind the scenes? That’s where the backend development comes into play. Storing, retrieving, and sending data, executing logic, running an algorithm, finding your location and finding an optimal route, ensuring your message is sent to a friend, and more are all covered in the backend.

It may come as no surprise here that we have an opinion on what technologies and frameworks work best for most applications. It’s our opinion that NodeJS paired with the TypeScript framework or Java paired with Spring Boot framework is the way to go.

On top of the technologies and frameworks, we follow a standard set of practices and principles including RESTful API Design, and Graphql API Design. API stands for Application Programming Interface and should be used in any application being built due to the performance and security benefits APIs provide.

Performance & Security

Optimizing continuous delivery

We build in industry-standard continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines into every project we take on. Our pipelines check for code quality and security vulnerabilities upon every deployment. Our ability to set efficiently set up these deployment pipelines not only streamlines development — it also ensures you are getting premium functioning code.

This practice of going from “I have an idea” to “I have code running in production” as fast and efficiently as possible is often referred to as the practice of DevOps. There are a number of dev shops out there that think DevOps principles are not important in development, we disagree and ensure all our developers know how to set up rapid and automated deployments and quality checks.

Web App Architecture

Design before you implement

The backbone of every application lies in the architecture. The potential of an application can be hindered or primed for success depends on how well the system and its cloud infrastructure are designed. For this reason, Elko requires all their architects to be AWS or Azure cloud certified.

When it comes to implementing the well laid out plans of our architects, we leverage a language called Terraform to create and configure the servers, databases, load balancers, queues, and more. Using source-controlled code to create the cloud infrastructure is called IaC (Infrastructure as Code). IaC in the hands of a mature development agency like Elko drastically reduces cost and increases speed and quality of development.

WordPress website development

The most popular CMS platform

A quarter of the internet is powered by WordPress, and for good reason. The reliable service and powerful plugins make for an easy-to-manage website with tonnes of features. We’re capable of getting the most from WordPress, making sure your website has everything it needs to succeed. This content management system (CMS) is our go-to for websites that do not require a large amount of backend custom coding. Even though there is minimal custom coding, we still ensure your site is secure, easy to use, interactive, and exciting to your visitors.

To achieve rapid and quality development, we use the Divi or Elementor framework on top of WordPress.

If eCommerce is your goal, Shopify could be a convenient solution for you that plugs easily into any WordPress website. Shopify is an intuitive, easy-to-use eCommerce website platform with incredible functionality. We’re experts at getting the most out of it and can make launching your eCommerce website a breeze.

Why we’re different

Our One Of A Kind In-House Development Software

We aim to be the stress-free development agency, and we’ve built a completely unique tool called the Elko App Builder to help do just that. There are a ton of things in the development process that can be automated to reduce costs and improve service, and it works on three main principles.

Provision

With EAB we provision the infrastructure for any app or software in a few clicks, rather than weeks or months of manual work.

Develop

Ensure only the highest standards of code get by. Built in CI/CD pipelines with constant grading of code allows developers the instant feedback they need to properly develop apps.

Manage

Manage single apps or entire application portfolios in one accessable dashboard
