Perl & MySQL Consulting... and more

Develooper LLC is a small (tiny even!) consulting shop. We do work for both big and small, but we enjoy working with smaller companies (or independent divisions of bigger ones). Some services we offer.


Consulting availability is strictly on a cool stuff, first-served basis! :-) Our project schedule is ever busy and revolving, so we might not have time on your schedule. Get in touch and we'll help you in one way or another.

Areas of expertise

High traffic dynamic web sites and services, how to make the gears turn smoothly.

We can do or help with the "core architecture" planning, the implementation, a combination or even the cleanup after someone else has been through.

Some projects are just a day or two of brainstorming and drawing on a whiteboard, some a few weeks of development and some span years of ongoing development and maintenance.

The technologies aren't always important, but stuff we really like around here include Perl, mod_perl, Apache httpd, web authentication, perlbal, caching, squid, memcached, Varnish, FreeBSD, Linux (system configuration and maintenance - one server or 500), MySQL, BerkeleyDB, DNS (djbdns, mydns, bind, the DNS protocol, custom DNS servers), SMTP (qmail, qpsmtpd, postfix, sendmail, the SMTP protcol, custom SMTP servers), Antispam (more technologies than we like to think of!), NNTP (innd, colobus, custom nntp servers), Revision Control Systems (Subversion, CVS, ...), Issue tracking (Request Tracker, Bugzilla)... and many more.

We stick to the areas we excel at, so if your project is outside our domain we'll get you referred and make sure you are in capable hands. Feel free to ask and we'll help in one way or another.
