    Search Engine Optimization

    Search Engine Optimization from The Dev Team For most websites, being accessible to Google is probably the most important requirement. The only way that this can be done is to make it carefully thought out and integrated part of your website. If anybody phones up offering to get you to the top of the search engine rankings for a few hundred pounds, don't believe them.

    Joint Ventures

    Joint Ventures from The Dev Team One of the downfalls of working in IT is that everybody and his dog has an idea of how they're going to make a fortune with the Internet.

That's where we fit in. We are a highly skilled collective who are more than a match for most blue chip companies internal IT departments.

We're here to make IT and the Internet work for you.

Our core team has more experience than 85% of all programmers

Programmers rule the world.

The reality today is that nearly everything we touch has got some level of coding. Not just the mobile phones that we all rely on so much, but every telephone call, every electrical appliance that gets switched on by the push of a button, every TV.  A typical car will have about 10 million lines of code, and some of it will control vital functions like steering, or breaks; sometimes the code goes wrong and it kills people!

This is a massive responsibility!

Growth of Programmers

It is amazing to think that back in 1945 there were only a handful of programmers in the world.  By 1965 there were perhaps 100,000 and all of them were pretty much self-taught as there were no formal degree courses. By 1970 there were probably 1 million programmers and by 1995 this had grown to 10 million +.

This is a classic ‘Moores Law’ type exponential growth in which numbers of programmers double every 5 years.  But what that means is that half of all the programmers that are around today, have less than 5 years’ experience. We each have over 15 years experience, which is where the 85% figure is derived.

For such an important role in society, that can be scary.

Agile Programming

When Bob Martin and few other key leaders in the software programming world got together to discuss the industry, they came up with several ‘principles’ to help the upcoming cohort of new programmers. This quickly became the next big thing and has given rise to an industry of project managers, most of whom are not actually programmers.  So it is good to go back to those first principles.

Statistically speaking

Programming is a difficult and demanding occupation. It requires a mastery of the arcane tools of the trade, plus a detailed understanding of the objectives at hand.

Statistically speaking, for any project following a standard distribution of tasks (or the 80:20 rule if you prefer), it takes as long to do the first 95% of tasks as it does to get to 99.8% complete. The question that you need to ask is ‘how critical is the task?’

  • Is an error rate of 2 in a thousand good enough?
  • Is an error rate of 5 in a hundred going to be OK?

This is a seriously difficult conversation to be having at the beginning of a project, but it is probably the key to understanding how long it will take.

Manifesto for Agile Software Development

We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others to do it.

Through this work we have come to Value:

Individuals and Interactions are more important than processes and tools

Working software is more important than comprehensive documentation

Responding to change is more important than following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

Related to Our core team has more experience than 85% of all programmers

The Agile Manifesto

The Agile Manifesto is a group of software development methodologies which promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery, a time-boxed iterative approach, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change. We are moving towards the Agile Software development process and ISO 12207.

Software Development Skills

Productivity in software development has improved even faster than the hardware - Moore's Law - double the power every 18 months.

Software Development Pricing

For well-defined projects we are happy to provide a fixed price quote for meeting objectives, with stage payments at agreed milestones. If the project is more open ended we will work on an hourly rate and provide access to a collaboration tool that enables the client to track costs in detail and request work In providing an hourly rate we recognise that it begs the question "how much can you get done in an hour?"

David Radley

As a full stack developer David's role is to make sure that everyone can develop using the latest technologies, and work to the agile software development methodology. Proper planning throughout all stages ensures projects are developed to tight timescales, are to the customers’ requirements, remain error free, and keeps the amount of aftercare and future development costs to a minimum.

Data Visualization Summit

One of the big growth areas in technology is data visualization so we went along to the Data Visualization Summit at the Royal Garden Hotel in London to find out what the Industry Leaders had to say on the matter.

This is a specialist eCommerce website for Fly Fishermen from around the world. It comprises an archive documenting over 2,500 flies in photographs and recipe details, and from these we have chosen the 500 best flies and have them tied by experienced fly tiers using the best materials.   This business has been built up as a joint venture.

Advantages of Sub-contracting your Software development

Software development has become increasingly specialised, so only the largest companies can have all the skills necessary to be leading edge in all areas.


The British Artist Blacksmiths Association (BABA) approached TheDevTeam with regards to making them a website that can enable users to find blacksmiths easily and quickly, as well as creating a place for blacksmiths themselves to register their services and find blacksmith courses.
