Frontend engineering is about building the code that is closest to your users.
Frontend engineering is an incredibly fast-moving field. Customers expect more and more from the applications they use, which pushes browser technology (both desktop and mobile) at a breakneck pace. At DabApps, we are constantly refining and improving our toolset and our strategies to ensure we provide the best possible advice on tools and standards to our clients.
We take a mature, up-to-date approach to frontend development.
A few of the tools and libraries we like to work with...
Bootstrap is a collection of components, originally created by engineers at Twitter, that serves as a starting point when building a user interface. It provides buttons, boxes, form elements and grid layout tools to enable us to build professional-looking applications quickly. We routinely use Bootstrap as a starting point for a custom frontend design and example include RAC Garage Compare, Multicriteria Mapping, Conceptualizer and Solutions inc.
Less is a set of extensions to CSS, adding useful features which allow developers to write more maintainable, extendable code.
...and we have experience with plenty of other frontend tools, including jQuery, Backbone, Underscore, ImmutableJS, PureCSS and Browserify.
Mobile-First Responsive Design
Mobile-First Responsive Web Design allows a broader application of Web best practices; creating interfaces that are accessible to all, feature-rich and work across the entire spectrum of digital devices, from phones to tablets to laptops and desktops.
We are obsessed with producing high-quality, standards-compliant, maintainable frontend code. Through years of experience, we know the best way to build robust interfaces that are a joy to use.
