Andrew Johnston: Rapid Application Development Services

Projects and Products

As well as advising on IT Strategy and Architecture, I develop some software myself. Two consistent characteristics of solutions I provide are "Out of the Box" thinking and a desire for high-quality, flexible user interfaces. This extends both to end-user solutions, and to tools provided for developers.

Unfortunately, commercial confidentiality limits what I can publish about the end-user systems I have worked on. This page therefore concentrates on speculative developments, and products which have arisen as by-products of my mainstream work. Some of these products are available for purchase, and others could be developed by interested parties. I hope they will all serve to demonstrate my belief in giving both end users and developers flexible, powerful tools not limited by "lowest common denominator" functionality and platforms.

It is now available for download on a shareware basis. More Details...
