We love maintaining and improving existing code. (Yes, really.)
Old Code. New Tricks.
Have an app that needs a little love? Maybe you want more functionality or better test coverage. Perhaps your app is sluggish and you don’t know why. Or you just might need to find a way to integrate your existing application into new systems that your business is using.
Don’t Start Over — Remodel Your Code.
It’s common to hear developers recommend scrapping an existing application and building it over from scratch. Sometimes this makes sense, but often it’s more cost effective to improve what you already have. Would you tear down your house if all you wanted to do was update your kitchen or add on a sunroom? No, you’d remodel what’s already there. Learn more about our remodeling and retrofitting services.
Any Language. Any Platform. Any Framework.
Many developer shops limit themselves to a single language. But we know that software is always evolving and it often takes many frameworks, languages, and platforms to get the job done. Need ruby on a .NET framework? We’ve done it. Learn more about how we code.
Who we are
We're proud to be menders. We love adding value to software applications through modernization and maintenance. We squash bugs, stabilize infrastructures, add test coverage, refactor, document our findings, upgrade versions, and pay down tech debt with glee.
We joyfully remodel software applications to be more stable, scalable, and secure.
Software maintenance is celebrated, codebases are nurtured to provide lasting value, and our clients generate revenue, lower costs, and reduce risk as a result of our work.
Act with empathy
Listening and understanding is at the very heart of our culture. Consider the people who are impacted by your work: your clients, your users, your teammates, and even your future self.
Adopt a growth mindset
Constantly find ways to expand your knowledge and learn new things. Your intelligence and talent are not fixed. They are developed over time through perseverance, dedication and hard work.
Calm the chaos
Urgency leads to errors. Frenzy, to frustration. Focus on developing the steady working rhythm and calm mind that work best for solving complex problems.
Communication is just as important as code
No one at Corgibytes identifies as a “technical” or “non-technical” because everyone is both. Practice both types of skills regularly.
Craft in context
Match your solution to the situation. Sometimes, it’s a quick and dirty prototype to prove a concept. When the stakes are high, spending extra time getting it right is the best way to go.
At Corgibytes, we're really good at transforming broken systems. We modernize code through continuous improvement and marginal gains, and we apply these same practices to systems of social oppression. Similar to how technical debt makes a codebase difficult to work with, there are institutional barriers for some individuals that have accumulated over time. Blindly operating within these structures hurts people and prevents organizations from benefiting from the wide range of perspectives needed to thrive. There’s a lot of opportunity for improvement and we use our core values and our talents as menders to have a positive impact on our society.
