Web development at Kyan

Development is at the very heart of what we do. Since our formation, we’ve seen digital transformation revolutionise how users interact with products and services.

Our Technical Approach

Our offering has grown dynamically to accommodate this tremendous and exciting shift, with almost all of our projects now focusing on web, mobile, app or platform-based solutions. Web development in a more traditional sense is still commonplace at Kyan. For 17 years, we’ve worked to the same ethos; to create solutions that are clean, simple and clever, and to be known for our capability, care and quality.

Ruby on Rails

Rapid prototyping is essential at Kyan, and Ruby on Rails is an excellent tool for quickly realising complex ideas, while retaining a proven track-record in production. We’ve specialised in Ruby since its conception, so much so that it’s become second-nature with our engineering teams.

The Rails framework helps us build websites and apps in a way that is collaborative and flexible, following agile web development methodologies. We like to use it because it allows us to focus on the granular detail of solving the real business issues that our clients face.

React & React Native

React is a scalable JavaScript library used when developing single-page applications. It’s particularly useful for its state-handling capabilities, offering an elegant native app feel to the online web applications that we build for clients.

React's component-driven nature makes it an excellent choice for building interactive user interfaces. Components respond to changes in the application state, are composable, reusable and highly testable.

Let’s not forget Elixir

Elixir is a super-fast functional programming language and for certain projects we opt for it in place of our regular RoR toolset. We are strong believers that you should use the right tool for job, and we'll always specify the technology used with that maxim in mind.

Web design and application development in Surrey

We have deep roots in Guildford, and whilst most of our clients are city-based, we pride ourselves on our leafy surroundings. We’ve built lasting relationships with many local businesses and the wider design community, who have been with us since our fledgling days as a small web development studio (in 2002!)

Our studio sits pride of place at the bottom of Guildford High Street, and is a popular hub for clients and friends to come by and meet the team, catch up on projects, or attend one of our events. If you have a project that you’d like to talk to us about, drop by for a chat. Our door is always open.
