The company...

Adept Code, Inc. incorporated in 2010 as a web consulting and development company. We work with small companies and agencies and we're also an approved vendor for large corporations.

We understand that clients have different needs and budgets and we do our best to accommodate them. We go by the general mantra: "Cheap, Fast or Good, pick two". Please don't approach us with a crazy deadline unless you have the budget. Don't expect something for cheap, unless your target date is flexible. If you want it fast and cheap, go elsewhere...we won't sacrifice on quality and leave out the "Good".

How It Started

Aeons ago while working as a tech support rep I started playing with HTML and JS and my trusty Netscape browser. This was when AOL was huge, web development was relatively new and websites were filled with super terrific DHTML animations, animated gifs flying across your browser window and people still hated developing for IE (even though half of the sites on the web would only run in IE...oh VBScript I'm glad you're dead). During one of my shifts I popped open Notepad and started building out a simple web page for fun. My manager walked by my cubicle and noticed what I was doing and asked if I wanted to build the company intranet site.

Along with building the company's intranet site, I also wrote DB queries and report generation services. The company was using FoxPro (although not a true RDBMS, I was still doing SQL queries) and from generating these reports I learned about databases and more importantly SQL. This was my intro into the world of programming in a professional setting. After a some time I started to help build and maintain the company's warranty claim web application. This application started as a Visual FoxPro desktop app that connected over a modem to a BBS and evolved into an ASP (classic ASP, long before the days of ASP.Net) web application. I remained in this role for about 9 1/2 years until my position was outsourced overseas.

After my position was sent offshore, I moved into programming on a LAMP stack. I worked at a couple agencies building sites and apps. One of the agencies I worked at for a few years went bankrupt after failing to pay its employees on time on two different occasions. This is when I decided to go freelance and work for myself. After a successful year of freelancing, Adept Code, Inc. formed and incorporated.

Since then, we've built loads of stuff. Expanding into different technologies (Ruby, GraphQL, PHP, PostgreSQL, MySQL, JS, SCSS, LESS and CSS to name a few). We've worked with various frameworks, such as RoR, jQuery, AngularJS, Bootstrap, CodeIgniter and WordPress. We've integrated with APIs and SDKs like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Unicorn Media. Lately we've been focusing a lot on Ruby on Rails and GraphQL and we love it.
