Why we specialise in PHP programming?

We believe in picking a platform and becoming experts, rather than dabbling in many platforms.

Programmers can get into philosophical debates about the merits of one software development platform over another. We have not chosen PHP for philosophical reasons. There are other powerful, well supported programming languages and platforms available.

Often software companies in New Zealand will build applications in a range of programming languages and software development platforms. A broader range of programming languages makes it possible to take on business from more customers, which is great from the software companies point of view. It is not so good from the customers point of view, as the developers will have less specialised skill.

We decided from day one to specialise in PHP, not because it is the only choice, but by making a choice to specialise we can offer customers the most expertise in a narrow field rather than being jacks of all trades. By specialising we deliver code faster, with less bugs, than companies that offer a broad range of programming languages.
