Services

WNDX is a software development & training consultancy in southern Alberta, Canada.

Rails Application Maintenance

Your business-critical Ruby on Rails application needs to be maintained and upgraded. But your busy development team is defining, designing and delivering new business features. Let the WNDX Group take care of your Rails application's maintenance needs, and help power-up your development team to deliver more features, faster.

Web Applications

When a small business takes off rapidly, your most precious commodity is time. Time spent performing routine work, or pushing data from one system to another is a waste of your precious time. We can help you identify the most effective work to automate, and can rapidly deliver a custom web application to provide robust mobile-ready solution for your business. See our Portfolio for examples of the applications we've built and worked on.

Mobile Applications

With the deep penetration of smart phones, mobile applications are now a compelling option for custom business software. We literally wrote the book on Core Data, for data-heavy mobile applications, on the lessons learned in the development of the WIMBY - Wells In My Back Yard application. Let us work together to identify, design and develop the tools your mobile workforce needs.

About

The WNDX Group Inc. has been in operation for 20 years.

  • 1996

    Early Days

    The WNDX Group was originally formed to continue supporting and developing the WNDX GUI Toolkit, a set of cross-platform C libraries, used to create cross platform graphical windowing user interfaces for applications on DOS, Windows, X-Windows (Sun Solaris, HP-UX, SGI Irix), and Macintosh.

  • 1999

    Brewing some Java

    Then Java came along and kicked the crap out of the cross-platform business. If you can't beat'em, join'em. WNDX became a Java programming consultancy, specializing in early AWT applets for the web, Swing based desktop applications, and finally enterprise web applications.

  • 2005

    Rocking the Rails

    Introduced to Ruby on Rails pre-1.0 release, we were so impressed with the boost in productivity it provided, that we immediately started our next project with Ruby on Rails, and continue to develop Rails applications for appropriate business solutions today.

  • 2011

    Passion for Teaching

    After many years of informally mentoring and coaching the junior developers on the teams with which we have worked, it was time to formalize some of that knowledge, and we created the Ruby on Rails for Real Developers series of workshops (RoR4Real, Rails4iOS).

  • 2014

    Author! Author!

    Ruby, the language, was developed to make programmers happy. It made us very happy when RubyMotion was released, allowing us to develop iOS applications using Ruby. The result... we started developing mobile applications, and our first book was written and self-published ‐ Core Data in Motion.
