What's your problem?
What are you struggling with? Or what are you trying to build? Can MCQN Ltd. help?
We don't have any technological axe to grind, nor will we try to shoe-horn whatever you want into the tools that we know. If we know a bit of software will perfectly fulfil your requirements but it isn't something in which we're well versed then we'll still recommend it, and maybe even be able to recommend someone to help you out with implementing it.
There are two broad strands to what we do know lots about...
The Internet of Things
Ubiquitous or physical computing is a newly evolving discipline bringing together very low-cost hardware with the connectivity of the Internet. With our background in both the embedded software and web fields, we're well placed to help you understand the potential and bring your ideas into existence.
Whether it's something frivolous - like a device that blows bubbles whenever mentioned on twitter - or more serious - such as the Mazzini power monitor - we're excited about exploring the possibilities.
From leading a team prototyping a new mobile phone UI for Motorola to writing code to test an embedded web browser for set-top boxes, MCQN Ltd. has helped a variety of companies with embedded or mobile-phone development tasks in C and C++. We are particularly skilled in Internet protocol coding - anything from PPP drivers through to HTTP code.
Anything from setting up a blog to building a fully functional database-backed web application. Founder Adrian McEwen has been blogging since early 2003 and we've been using Ruby on Rails since 2005. Our to-do list application, tedium, was written entirely in Ruby on Rails, as was Booklert. Booklert also involved interfacing with a number of external APIs - Amazon to retrieve book details, and Twitter to send updates.
We've also been involved in a number of projects for external clients to either add new features or build their web applications.
We're happy to discuss things further, just send an email to Adrian.
