Open Source Foundations
Asymmetry recommends OpenSource technology such as php, mysql, apache, and osCommerce running on Redhat Linux. These applications provide you with great value for money since there are no ongoing license fees associated with these products. It also means that your website can easily be scaled to cope with bursts in website visitors. This is the technology that most major successful websites of the world are founded on - Google, Yahoo and Multimap.com to name but a few. The total cost of ownership and deployment is far lower than conventional Microsoft based systems.
Standards Compliant Code
Asymmetry.co.uk's Open source approach means that our code is fast and reliable. Standards driven development ensures that our webpages are accessbile to your disabled users, clean and fast in delivery to your customers web browser, and easy for other developers to understand - so you're not tied to us once we've built your system. We use a source control system to ensure no data or code is lost and at the end of the project we can provide you with a CD-ROM containing all project files and documentation.
