We have a REAL passion for solving problems.
These days we can't imagine our world without Facebook and Twitter. Social networks are now part of our everyday lives from personal to professional and connecting our offline lives to our online personas. Social networks are a great opportunity for both promotion and platforms.
When it comes to promotion, we don't call it marketing, we call it sharing. We help you connect in to the social networks and utilize your customers existing social identities. The end goal is engagement.
Modern applications and services are expected to be available anywhere and anytime, including your own pocket. With so many options in devices and the constant changes in operating systems, most find mobile a challenge. Our approach to mobile is flexible and fast. We'll help you figure out the right mobile strategy for your site or product. We can crank out native Android and iOS applications, build you a hybrid with PhoneGap/ Cordova or code you a nice web app with responsive design. We've done it all.
Web? Internet? Cloud? We don't care what you call it. Web sites and applications keep people coming back to the internet. We use HTML5 and related technologies to create rich, responsive user experiences (like this site). And we know how to build and use APIs to maintain flexibility.
Cloud computing lowered the barriers and costs to deploy robust and scalable backends in almost any technology. We regularly take advantage of Ruby on Rails, MySQL, Postgres, Redis and jQuery, but are no strangers to Java, PHP, Web Sockets, Node.js and others.
Applications don't just get built, they require improvement to meet changing needs and updates to stay current with technologies. We treat applications as products and help you iteratively determine a lifecycle strategy that meets your needs. This is why we are big fans of agile methodologies as well as lean startup principles. As the world moves fast, we need to produce measurable results just as fast. And we are all about results.
All of our engagements start with a simple meeting to set a baseline and agree on goals.
Thorough, but focused, analysis is the key to moving forward with any product.
Architecting a product is both an art and a science. It requires a lot of both communication and leaps of faith.
All the analysis and architecting pays off when it comes to building. Well planned products are smoothly built.
We help you complete the technical and social strategies to make the launch of your product a success.
We enjoy scaling your product just as much as we enjoy developing it.
At the center of every successful engagement is effective communication. Because our work is personal, we don't serve clients, we build partnerships.
We are two people - a couple to be exact. We started Tapangi in the summer of 2011 because we thought there was a better way to do business. The word “Tapangi” means to help (in a rare Palauan language). And that is what we do.
