We pride ourselves on understanding our customer's needs and offering solutions best suited for the task at hand. We have extensive experience building great software applications, and we offer end-to-end solutions, from inception of an idea to final product on the market.
At SkyScraper, we have experience removing technical debt to bring mature but old applications to modern architectures and offer rearchitecturing services that will revive your codebase and company. Most software development comes to a halt after some time, due to rapidly changing requirements and the failure of software teams to accomodate change. We offer solutions to fix this.
We believe functional programming is an important paradigmn that is being rediscovered and getting more mainstream. We are experts in functional programming and favor the paradigm whenever is possible.
Immutability forces engineers to re-think how they approach state in applications, management of which is the single-most source of complexity and bugs in computer programs. We are true believers in immutable by default architectures.
Robust and bug-free code is important, robust, bug-free code that is developed fast is even more important. Prompt delivery of the final product gives our customers' the competitive edge on the market.
Most of the complexity in software arises because the implementers have vague knowledge on the domain they are building applications for. We believe computing brings tools to re-think how we understand the world and the domains we are implementing software for.
Object-oriented programming has important assets, but is widely misunderstood and implemented incorrectly by the masses. OOP coupled with immutability brings abstraction benefits that FP cannot provide on its own. OOP done right is a vital part of our toolbox.
Steve Jobs once said computers are the bicycles for the mind. It reforms, shapes and takes our thinking abilities to territories previously undiscovered. We believe software development is not only a way of thinking about the world and a craft, but an art.
We are a team based in Istanbul, Turkey, comprising Ustun Ozgur, and Serkan Ozer, both with MSc degrees in engineering from Bilkent University and University of Barcelona respectively.
We also have an advisory board whom we consult with on architectural and business decisions, consisting of Armagan Amcalar, Head of Software Engineering at unu GmbH, MSc Sabanci University and Mehmet Onsiper, MSc UC Davis.
For rapid application development for MVPs, we use and recommend Django and Python for its built-in good defaults and widespread community support. Coupled with Django Rest Framework, building API's for CRUD apps is a breeze with Django.
We are experts in React, Redux and the ecosystem and have been using React almost since its release. React revolutionized how we build web applications, and we have helped multiple companies get products ready with React, and teams training on modern JS ecosystem. React couples nicely with Django for building both MVPs and enterprise applications in a timely manner.
For applications where microservice architecture is more apt, realtime connectivity is desired, or where performance is a higher priority, we prefer to use node.js and its ecosystem. It provides better performance thanks to its async nature, and the skillset can be reused on the frontend as well.
We believe node.js provides the best environment for building microservices thanks to the following builtins:
