Who Are We?In 2000, a small group of software engineers, with a total of over 50 years experience, decided to pool their resources and Object Craft was formed. Our aim is to build a company with a breadth and depth of knowledge in application design, deployment, debugging and maintenance.
We specialise in Linux, Unix, Mac/iOS and Android development. We have extensive experience with Open Source software, especially Python and database, to deliver web-based solutions to a wide range of industries such as finance, telco's, postal services and others.
We offer the following services
- Application development - benefit from our breadth and depth of software engineering experience.
- Refactoring - make the most out of what you have.
- Independent code and project review - get an honest and thorough appraisal of your current development projects.
Open Source ProjectsWe have created a range of open source applications that we have found useful in our work. Visit our software section to learn more. We also offer support for all our open source applications.
We would really appreciate any stories you have about how and where our software is being used. We are putting together a group of testimonials for local government and business with the aim of promoting the use of Open Source software as a safe and viable alternative. Please contact Mark Matthews - any contribution will be greatly appreciated.
