For entrepeneurs who need help making their business idea reality, Govannon is a a collective of technical and commercial specialists that can build any app you want. No really, we can. Unlike big software companies, we deliver working solutions in a reasonable timeframe and for a reasonable amount of money. We have a fantastic track record of delivering on time and within budget.
Govannon is one of the gods worshipped by ancient Celts. He is portrayed in their literature as a metal worker with superb craftsmanship. Therefore he is also referred to as the god of the forges. We are independent craftsmen working together as a guild to craft great software by hammering the bits and bytes into a magical alignment.
We work together with our clients. This means we build and deliver a minimum viable product (MVP) as early as we can. Then you start using the app and we continuously deliver updates.
Using the app while it is being created allows you to provide feedback, and possibly change directions, before a lot of time has been spent creating something you don't want or need.
Every day your app will become more awesome.
Because we deliver results early in the process, you and your team get a great feel of what we are building. It also means there is less risk of things going wrong, deadlines slipping or the project going over budget.
Others may call this process Lean or Agile, for us it is just common sense.
We use Agile practices and our team creates most our the projects using the Ruby on Rails framework. We have been working with Rails since 2004 and use it everyday.
One of the main advantages of working with Ruby and the Rails framework is that we can prototype extremely fast, showing you results immediately.
Another big advantage of Ruby on Rails is that when we decide to make changes later on in the process (which we always do, don’t we?)we can adapt your app, instead of rewriting it. This way don’t have to start over from scratch, saving both time and money.
We at Govannon are all free-lancers with different skills working together in different combinations on the projects. Depending on the clients needs, wants and budget, we develop a team suited for the task.
We are always looking for talented people to work with us. We ask that you have a little or a lot of experience in one or more areas of the interwebs and that you do not mind being an independent contractor. If you require job security, this may not be for you However, if you have never been your own boss but it is something you dreamed about, we love to help you get started!
Still interested ? Click here to get in touch, show us what you can do and we will contact you. Promise!
We can help you out with your IT. Our people come from the fast moving world of internet security and have an excellent working knowledge of fast networking, excellent collaboration and great security.
We can also help you out with your business ideas. This can be done in lots of ways. For example by a two-hour Q&A sessions or a complete week of brainstorming and conceptualizing. Whatever you need. Or we can just give you a full quote on your project.
We work together with a customer instead of for a customer. This means that sometimes you are not always king. Sorry. We believe that based on our extensive experience it is sometimes best to say no to an idea or feature request. We keep it real.
Is there a problem? If so what is the problem? Do you want to sell a product or service. What are possible solutions. Does that involve or require an app or a website? Or a combination of technologies. Is a website really neccessary? Sometimes we can help you out by offering quick solutions in the form of existing services/tools.
We will determine together with you what is ‘must have’ in this project and what is extra functionality that maybe we can build later on.
