This is what we do
In a sentence, we code strong and stable php websites from server to database to visuals...
Since 2003, Al and Roy have worked together, starting out working on the browser based game NinjaWars.net in php and mysql, transitioning it to postgresql, html5, a templating system, and making a long list of other improvements over the years. Since then we have worked together & separately on a variety of other projects, including web applications, a PHP/MySQL-based CMS system, technological modernization of an existing organization, most recently shermanbrothers.com and now BitLucid, Inc.
In August of 2011 we incorporated as BitLucid, Inc. in order to smooth the process of managing subcontractors and common expenses, among other benefits. We specialize in technology consultation, including web programming, creating websites from the ground-up, or recreating them where they already exist but need some love. Two of our strengths in this arena are: Security & Usability.
Security is paramount. We have seen too many sites burned by bad php coding practices and with their client or employee data under attack as a result. We have done a lot of security cleanup work on sites that were coded by programmers without any oversight, which resulted in compromised databases and a site that -looked- fine but was full of security holes. Generally one of the first things that we do with a site is review it's password security for the presence of strong cryptography, often a pain point with naively programmed php websites that leads to problems. We favor Object Oriented programming, but have also explored the benefits of Functional Programming as a simpler and faster alternative in some cases. In the case of existing website codebases, we necessarily are flexible to a variety of coding styles.
Overall, we generally enjoy the artistic nature of creating strong websites, and the challenge of writing solid and secure PHP code as a foundation.
