We use Python and Django to bring up these solutions:
Implement, prepare and personalize CMS based on your needs. We use existing and powerful CMS, previously tested, instead of creating them from scratch. With this, we can apply any and all customized requirements that your organization needs.
Develop ALL types of web applications. From simple data bases oriented to complex systems, to multi-component systems, integrated with external services such as geolocation services and e-commerce.
Create Desktop Applications. Using flexible, industry-tested methodologies, we offer high-quality applications. We are experienced in multimedia visualization, hardware interface and usability. Our experience allows us to develop robust and easy-to-use applications.
Given that the state of technology allows to replicate human processes at a high speed and scale, in addition to these applications, we utilize Research and Development to achieve Innovation in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining and Natural Language Processing.
Machinalis relies on Open Source technologies as they contribute to a better software. Each person from anywhere in the world can offer support to create, improve and test this technology, and in the end, it is technology who wins. This happens everywhere. All in all, a better support is created to find a solution that fits your needs.
Most of our development is created by employing Python and tools based on it. Python is an easy to comprehend and maintain language, potent, and adaptable to big size applications. For you this results in less development time (as you can reuse the components as opposed to writing it from scratch), fewer costs associated with it (the less development time, the lower the cost) and a better quality turnout (since we use standard, tested modules, instead of reinventing the wheel). Some of the other companies that base their development on Open Source technologies and particularly on Python are: Google, Industrial Light & Magic, Nokia, Rackspace, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the NASA.
Django is a Python tool used to create web-based applications with a database backend. It is a tool that allows us to offer fast development of complex and scalable applications. With Django we can combine the simplicity of using the browser to access the different applications with the power of Python so as to make whatever is necessary, instead of being “just a website”. With this user-friendly tool, you can create a site accessible to the public and your customers (clients/users), an intranet application for internal use in your organization, or both things at the same time. In turn, the changes in your organization are exposed to the public in a safe and controlled way.
Some of the most relevant sites made with Django are YouTube, Instagram, Mozilla and the Washington Post, among others. Also, known applications such as Satchmo (an e-commerce platform) and Pinax (a social network framework) are part of this.
Last but not least, the open code model generates a better software quality, security and integration facility. This is obtained at a much faster speed, and often at lower costs.
With these bases, in Machinalis we work under flexible methods, which in turn allow us to focus on the following pillars:
- Individuals and their interaction, instead of processes and tools
- A working software, instead of exhaustive and nonsense documentation
- Collaboration with the client, instead of the unproductive contractual negotiation
- Response to change, instead of the inflexible follow-up of the plan
In particular, the flexible development accelerates the delivery of added value to the initial business, through ongoing planification and feedback. As a result of this recurrent planning process and the feedback cycles, the teams are able to constantly align the software with the particular business needs wanted by the customer. This in turn offers an easy adaptation to the changing requirements throughout the process. In conclusion, the final product matches better to the needs of the customers thanks to their active participation in the different software cycle checking.
Python is a high-level general-purpose programming language that can be applied to many different classes of problems.
The language comes with a large standard library that covers areas such as string processing (regular expressions, Unicode, calculating differences between files), Internet protocols (HTTP, FTP, SMTP, XML-RPC, POP, IMAP, CGI programming), software engineering (unit testing, logging, profiling, parsing Python code), and operating system interfaces (system calls, filesystems, TCP/IP sockets).
As a result, Python is a language that is simple to write and maintain, yet powerful and scalable to large applications. Those are the main reasons why we choose it every day!
Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
Developed by a fast-moving online-news operation, Django was designed to handle two challenges: the intensive deadlines of a newsroom and the stringent requirements of the experienced Web developers who wrote it. It lets you build high-performing, elegant Web applications quickly.
