Meadowlark: Software Development in Sheffield

Bespoke Software Development in Sheffield

Meadowlark have twenty years of experience of writing bespoke software applications. These are of various types, mostly comprising database or web applications.

Database applications

Web applications

We use the most appropriate technology for the project. Sometimes we use propietary software development tools, sometimes we use open source tools.

If the number of concurrent users of the site is large and the data changes frequently, we may adopt an SQL database tuned for speed. If however there are few users we may adopt something less taxing of the hardware.

Software development tools, languages and technology we regularly use:

What you can expect from computer hardware in the future?

1. Smaller faster, cheaper, lighter computers for the desktop.  They will be no larger than a DVD drive.  They will be silent, and run free software, and much of this will be web based.  They will use solid state disks, and large quantities of cheap memory.

2. More powerful mobile phones will largely replace traditional PCs, tablets, and laptops. They will connect wirelessly to television sets and folding keyboards to enable a new era of mobile working. The screens of mobiles will occupy as much of the phone as physicallly possible.  "Soft buttons will replace mechanical buttons.

3. Sophisticated screen display technology will be available that will allow us to use bigger computer monitors in smaller less likely workplaces.

4. Micro-factories: places of work no bigger than a loft extension, where budding entrepreneurs labour in their free time "printing" products with 3D printers and selling their wares by the internet.
