Application Development

Our Approach

Tephra has a 3 phase application development process. First, we identify the requirements and the technology necessary to complete the project successfully. Second, we employ the Agile software development methodology to build the application. This methodology promotes a close relationship with our clients by providing a rapid feedback loop to ensure that we build a product that meets our clients' needs. Last, we provide a performance and sustainability report for the application and help with the user adoption process.

Our Expertise

  • Frameworks - Frameworks such as Symfony, Zend, Ember, Backbone, Knockout and Angular can be a great way to improve maintainability and reduce development time for your applications by avoiding the typical ramp up time associated with a custom framework and providing a strong foundation.
  • Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) - We are experienced in creating and using APIs to build web applications that are both scalable and portable. Although we specialize in RESTful APIs, we are well versed in many other kinds of APIs as well.
  • Single Page Applications (SPAs) - A single page application can be a great way to build responsive web applications that leverage JavaScript to replace traditional page-to-page navigation. If you don't like hourglasses or spinners, an SPA is probably the right solution for you.
