BlackBall Software is a software development company specializing in startups
Unlike regular development work, startups have
some pretty unique requirements - they're ambitious, original and they're in a hurry. They also need support
translating their software needs into systems that work with limited budgets but can grow long term.
We love startups. For two reasons - firstly, startups are exciting. They’re creating the next-generation of technology - how cool is that?. Secondly, we've been there.
We know what it's like to be a startup because
we always have exciting businesses growing ourselves (currently in development are stringsof.me and Rate-It).
Because we’ve both specialized in startups and personally experienced the process, we understand the stress and passion, but can provide a tempered hand
in analyzing your software requirements and getting you to market quickly with a quality, concise and expandable product.
How we can help your startup
BlackBall Software offers its expertise to businesses looking for high-end custom-made
1. High quality & future-proofed software
We've built dozens of startups, so we know what we're doing and we know how to do it quickly. For the business owner, this means you can concentrate on growing your business
without worrying about the software keeping up. For the geeks, this means:
- built-in unit testing
- 100% abstraction of service and data layers using POCO objects
- integrated caching to boost performance
- common toolset such as (these days) ASP.Net and ASP.Net MVC, C#, Sql Server, jQuery, HTML5 CSS3
- Dependency Injection & Inversion of Control
2. Design & Consultancy
Good software is more than just a flash colour scheme and graphics, and a solid foundation to your software project is analogous to the foundation of your house.
From database design to automated testing and switchable business logic, BlackBall uses the latest technologies and methodologies
to design a solid architecture for a lasting project.
3. Perhaps you just need advice
Software can be confusing and overwhelming. The industry is full of jargon and people toting various hot new technologies. But we love it and we love talking about it, so if
you have questions or maybe just a gem of an idea, give us a call and we'll point you in the right direction.
