The Good Stuff Wordpress is a great tool for getting websites online quickly and has a huge community of great developers behind it. Based on a quick Google search and clicking on this random link it appears roughly 27.5% of the web runs off Wordpress. This blog post is not anti-Wordpress propaganda, we just don't think it needs to be used for every website on the planet. Does your site need different user roles for editing and maintaining content?

The beginning In a recent post, we discussed our first year as a company. That, however, was not the whole story. Like many beginnings, we stumbled (and continue to stumble) from time to time as we strive to find our path. Common discussions we’ve had are: What is our vision? Who are our clients? What is our elevator pitch? Now it’s time to reflect on these points with the “wisdom” of a whole year behind us.

5. MailGun We find ourselves using this product in almost every application we build. Mailgun is a transactional email api service. Mailgun enables developers to send, track and receive emails via their api which is pretty basic transactional email functionality. One feature we really like is the ability to create routes to allow some basic logic around receiving an email from a specific sender. Create a route to store the email, notify a webhook in your application, get the email from Mailgun via the api and finally process the information or download the attachment… really whatever you need to do.

Going from employees to employers was a big stepping stone for us but we are very happy we took the chance. The Beginning We had many talks over many beers, always discussing what we would do if we started our own company, how we would do it and why we wanted to do it better.
