Internet applications

Most our time these days is spent making things happen on the web. As programmers, we're comfortable working with web technologies and can quickly see how a particular idea or requirement can be made a reality.

Strainge is able to supply complete websites designed to your specification or work with your existing web design team to do the 'difficult' or 'boring' technical bits that they can't manage or don't want to get involved with.

We can help with existing applications or scripts. We can update, patch, port, fix or enhance them or take them round the back and quietly dispose of them if that's the kindest thing to do, replacing them with more manageable and capable alternatives.

We're able to work with most products and technologies but our general preference is for Linux servers running Apache with back-end applications written in C or Python, building on tools such as MySQL, ImageMagick and Ghostscript. It may not be the latest fashion but it produces solid, reliable and long-lived solutions.

We're happy to discuss any web project, large or small. Not every business is an Amazon or eBay and many small business websites really need a few well designed and implemented scripts rather than full-blown applications to make a real and profitable difference to their operation.

It's not practical to everything we might do for you but here are some of the applications and services we have supplied on the web:

  • Banner advertising system
  • Booking systems
  • Calculators and small applications
  • Digital camera image database
  • E-learning and training applications
  • E-Mail groups, mailing lists, chat forums
  • Enquiry, contact and response forms
  • Events listingsand diaries
  • Guestbooks
  • Search and query engines
