Here at SYSTEMICK we are passionate about open source. To us it is not simply a career choice, it is a way of life. More importantly, it brings a number of benefits not available from proprietary solutions that the customer and end user may not be aware of.
The first thing to be aware of is the cost. Open source software is free. Not many people are aware that there is an open source alternative to Microsoft Office that is available to download free of charge from the internet. Knowing this fact alone has just saved you nearly £100!!
PHP is one of the most widely used, open-source, server-side web development languages that exist today. With over 20 million indexed domains using PHP, including major websites like Facebook, Digg and WordPress, there are good reasons why many web developers prefer it to other server-side scripting languages, such as Python and Ruby.
Web development or more specifically web application development is what we do here at SYSTEMICK. We specialise in web-based, database driven applications. We consider ourselves to be experts at transforming simple websites into robust, secure, interactive web applications that will scale from small sites to large applications servicing thousands of customers a day.
