who we are

We are two developers (Will and Martin) with the ambition to make the web better. We utilize the power of modern frameworks to build great apps for the web, whether they are accessed from a desktop or a mobile device.

We believe the internet has the power to improve the world in all sorts of ways, and so we also experiment with crowdsourcing, mash up publicly available data, and program APIs.

We met at betahaus (great co-working space in Berlin), from where we are still working today. Being around skilled people from all walks of life allow us to quickly assemble teams to build great stuff and learn new tricks.

We're always looking for interesting problems to solve, so if you have something on your mind, do get in touch in with us!

100 lines of code: "t for translate" Chrome Extension

Some of my friends engage in the unfortunate behavior of posting stuff on Facebook in languages I don’t understand. But instead of de-friending them, I was looking for way to instantly translate stuff wherever I am on the web. Chrome being my browser of choice, I decided to built a Chorme extension.
