We’ve done a major redesign of the company website. The intention is to better illustrate our portfolio and our expertise. Hope you like it!
For some projects, it makes a lot of sense to separate yourself from being dependent on others deliverables. At Binary Peak we often find ourselves waiting for backend implementations to be completed when doing mobile applications. Mocking a REST service so all of the application flows can be tested before the application is done is usually a good strategy to deal with that. Sometimes the backend team will do that for us, but they are often under a tight deadline and stuff like this rarely gets prioritized.
A lot of teams choose to use services like Sinatra for this. An advantage with that approach is that writing the mock code in a language like Ruby will allow you to quickly get something up and running. We’ve used tools like that to great success before but this article will describe another way of doing it that suited a particular project we were doing.

Made for Triventus, a company specializing in renewable energy. It is a tool used to visualize wind power data in effective ways in order to detect problems and optimize throughput. We developed it as a cross-platform (Windows, Linux and OSX) application for desktop computers using PyQT.

We helped Trouble Brothers implement a network architecture for their iPad game Cargo Runners.
Back in 2011 they implemented a voting tool for their council meetings using iPads that helped save tons of paper. They are also famous for having a very active website that is cleanly designed with content licensed with Creative Commons. We got in touch with them to discuss the possibility of creating an iPhone application that the citizens could use to participate with.
We partnered up with Good Old to produce an iPhone version of the restaurant guide.
