Technical Planning

Like an acting Chief Technology Officer, we help analyze your target market and problem-space, and connect your market with the technical vision of your product to choose the best technology stack for your needs.

The most common languages and frameworks we use are:

Ruby: Sinatra, Rails, EventMachine

Ruby is a dynamic, open-source language focused on developer productivity. In Ruby, everything is an object, but to us, Ruby is the object of our affection. This beautifully natural language is our go-to tool of choice.

JavaScript: Node, jQuery/Underscore, Phantom

JavaScript is another dynamic, open-source language, which has risen to ubiquity. We use JavaScript on the front-end to create rich, functional web apps, and on the back-end to create responsive, evented applications.

HTML5: jQuery Mobile, PhoneGap

HTML5 is the latest revision of the HyperText Markup Language. This revision has made multimedia and semantic markup first-class considerations on the web, for the desktop and mobile devices. HTML5 has made a joyous experience of building applications on the web for both desktop and mobile devices.

Our past, present & future

coming up on jones drive

Housed in the Northern Brewery historic office building in downtown Ann Arbor, MI, Alfa Jango, LLC is dedicated to helping your business grow and scale with web-based software and application development.

We work closely with startups to quickly grow and transition them to viable companies with minimal investment, by developing and building a successful Minimum Viable Product (MVP), and then quickly iterating thereafter.

And for our enterprise clients, we use this same lean methodology to build reliable, tested, scalable applications with minimal cost.

Where do we go from here?

Let us show you in these four steps, and we will be on our way.

Step 1 Talk with us

Send us a message so we can setup a phone call. In the Ann Arbor or Detroit area? Let's grab a coffee! If we're a good fit, it's on to Step 2!

Step 2 Dive in and plan

We'll take you from wherever you are in the startup planning process to having a solid outline and budget for building your Minimum Viable Product. This MVP will include what we'll build and more importantly what we won't build.

Step 4 Support & iterate

Now that the MVP is launched,
the journey is getting started.
