This was a particularly demanding project on the front end, requiring considerable care in the areas of accessibility, progressive enhancement and cross-browser compatibility while still delivering a modern and attractive site. The site was launched successfully and has proven very popular with its audience.
Development on an ambitious new Django project to create a highly configurable workflow management system.
We worked on key aspects of a multiplayer FPS game including rendering, low bandwidth network code, the user interface and multiplatform deployment. We also integrated several 3rd party C++ libraries with the core code written in Python.
We were asked to develop the front end and mid-layer of the CMS-based Earth Science website. The first step was to extract common functionality from several similarly built sites into a core library, which simplified development and improved maintainability across all sites.
Second Life Billing Engine
Linden Lab, creators of virtual world Second Life, wanted a new billing system which would enable them to flexibly integrate with a new payment provider and allow for international transactions. We worked alongside the Linden team, designing and implementing RESTful webservices and contributing our Python, Django and Linux expertise, eventually launching a stable, scalable and secure billing engine.
