Ruby on Rails
Ruby on Rails is a full-stack open source web development framework. It's a fantastic framework for building database backed web applications.
PHP is most commonly used for dynamic content sites and is most well known for being used in popular CMS frameworks such as WordPress and Joomla.
JS is commonly used for adding user triggered events to websites, but is becoming popular as a base language for web application frameworks.
We work with many of the popular CMS systems, but WordPress is our weapon of choice for dynamic content sites. We also build bespoke CMS systems.
Who We Are
Here at Xava, we’re very passionate about technology in general. We absolutely love the stuff! Most people would probably consider us “nerds” or “geeks’, we agree. Although those terms have typically been used in a derogatory way, times have changed, they are now just terms that describe an ever increasing segment of the population.
We do a lot of geeky stuff here, but the things we are most skilled at are mobile and web-based technologies.
In 2006, while at University as an adult student (studying for a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechatronics Engineering), our principal began toying with web design and development as a hobby. His interest was sparked by the literally unlimited potential of the technology. From there he continued to follow his interests, hone his skills and develop his passion for beautiful web design and development. Once he graduated, our principal decided to follow his new found passion and build a business based on it, and so Xava Digital was formed.
