Back-office system for online language school | 2022
We built a robust back-office system for ‘Let’s Learn a Language’, integrating Symfony and Vue.js. This led to a significant reduction in admin workload and contributed to the school’s most successful quarter in 2022.
Building an Industry-Level Career Portal for msg systems | 2020
Tasked by msg systems, an IT solutions provider with over 8,500 employees, in 2020 we built a Joomla-based career portal for IT professionals. The portal features 350+ job vacancies and integrates with existing systems for seamless data import/export. The portal’s success was confirmed when msg ranked 3rd in a German study evaluating online career presences.

Is React the right framework for you?
Choosing the right framework for your digital project is a crucial decision. Our experience with React spans several years, and we have witnessed its robust potential. However, as with any technology, understanding both its strengths and limitations is essential.
Here are some of the React features that set it apart from other frameworks:
React adopts a component-based architecture, making your application modular. This promotes code reuse and eases the development process, potentially leading to quicker development cycles and more manageable codebase maintenance.
Excellent User Interface (UI) Capabilities
React excels in building dynamic and interactive user interfaces. This responsiveness can significantly enhance user experience, leading to higher user engagement and conversion rates.
Strong Community Support
React is maintained by Facebook and has a vibrant and growing community. This means continuous improvement of the framework and a rich ecosystem of libraries and tools that can be leveraged to further enhance your application.
However, there are valid reasons why you might consider alternatives to React:
Library vs Framework
React is a library and not a full-featured framework like Angular. Therefore, for complex, large-scale applications, you may need to incorporate other libraries, which can lead to decisions around which ones to choose and potentially greater complexity.
Integration with Existing Applications
Integrating React into existing applications can sometimes be challenging and might require significant refactoring of your codebase. If your project requires extensive integration with an existing system, other solutions might provide a smoother transition.
React’s client-side rendering can pose SEO challenges, as search engines can struggle to index such content. While workarounds exist, they add complexity. This concern is particularly important if your application heavily relies on organic search traffic.
Our objective is to provide our clients with an unbiased, informed perspective to help them select the most suitable technology for their digital project. We’re here to guide you through this decision, ensuring the choice of technology aligns with your project’s specific needs and objectives.

Common questions to us as
a React developers
React Components are independent, reusable parts of your user interface. They are at the heart of React applications and allow developers to break down complex UI into smaller, manageable pieces. They range from simple buttons or form fields to entire sections of a web page, and they can be used multiple times across an application, ensuring consistency and ease of maintenance.
React itself doesn’t provide built-in security measures, but it encourages writing secure code by default. For instance, React escapes content by default to prevent cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. However, security largely depends on how developers use it, and it’s crucial to follow best practices to prevent vulnerabilities.
Definitely! React is excellent for larger projects due to its component-based structure and scalability. Many large-scale applications, including Facebook, Instagram, and Airbnb, use React for their user interfaces.
No, React is incredibly versatile. While it is equipped to handle large-scale projects, React is equally suitable for smaller applications. The component-based structure allows it to power a broad range of projects, from small single-page applications to large web platforms.
The cost of a React web application can vary widely based on factors such as project complexity, required functionality, and the expertise of the development team. While React itself is free, associated costs may include hosting, domain, additional libraries or frameworks, custom development, and maintenance.
While React may seem complex at first due to its unique concepts like JSX and virtual DOM, it provides a powerful and flexible system once you become accustomed to it. Its component-based architecture makes it easier to manage and maintain even large codebases. Furthermore, the React community offers an extensive array of online resources and support, making the management of a React application increasingly efficient with time.
