Contract projects

Sound Ideas can provide development "full-time" as a remote subcontractor for larger projects (when available).

Web Client

Angular, Ionic, Semantic UI

Angular is an incredibly powerful and flexible front-end framework that enables creating a feature-rich client side interface in a short amount of time compared with other frameworks.  Ionic is a framework that works with Angular to create hybrid web applications that can access device hardware and be submitted to app stores.  Semantic UI is a CSS framework that provides a "next generation" alternative look and features cleaner syntax than Bootstrap.

HTML5, CSS, JavaScript

These 3 technologies are behind all modern websites like this one. Web pages are built with HTML, styled with CSS and given logic with JavaScript. JavaScript has become such a powerful programming language that entire web applications can be developed with JavaScript from the front-end interface to the back-end database logic.

jQuery, Bootstrap

jQuery adds streamlined features to JavaScript and Bootstrap provides advanced layout and controls. Both of these technologies are currently used extensively in web development.

Web Server

Django REST, PostgreSQL

Django REST server framework provides a rich set of back-end features that enable rapid creation and manipulation of SQL data files.  PostgreSQL is a open-source SQL database that supports having separate customers (or "tenants") in the same web app to provide a SaaS (Software as a Service) environment.

Legacy Client / Server

C on UNIX / Linux

Sound Ideas has extensive experience with programming in C on UNIX & Linux, as demonstrated by our large UNIX software product line.

C++ & C# .NET on Windows

Our numerous Windows software products are built using Borland/Embarcadero C++ and we have some experience with Microsoft Visual C++. Sound Ideas also has considerable experience developing in C# .NET for a multi-year contract project.

Native Mobile

Objective-C / Swift on iOS

Sound Ideas created and maintains two commercial feature-rich business iOS apps.

Java on Android

Although our experience with Java/Android development is not as extensive as with iOS, Java is a C-family language and is quite similar to other development languages we work with.
