A Canadian media company operates many products, each
using a separate codebase. A custom, specialized framework was
created to reflect the best practices that were established and
to strategically harmonise the codebases.
We were tasked with a milestone review of this new framework.
Using various tools and through manual code inspection we
assessed the state of development with regard to security,
performance, architecture, and maintainability. We summarised
our findings and guidance in a concise technical report. We
presented the most important points in a conference call and
discussed them with the lead developers.
A successful digital agency that develops and operates
websites for well-known customers wants to improve the
efficiency of their in-house software development. A review of
existing code showed us that the comprehensive experience of the
agency's developers was not reflected in a unified way in the
To avoid code duplication and to leverage synergy effects
during development we suggested to create a custom framework
based on the concrete requirements of their existing software
solutions. We supported this project through milestone reviews
and on-site workshops to give feedback and discuss our
