The past few weeks at Alpha Particle, we have been trying out "Prototyping Fridays" where we attempt to take a small idea that we've had or a new piece of technology we've been looking at and implement a "completed" project in the course of an afternoon. This post goes into more detail about one of these projects.
Amazon recently rolled out their Onsite Associates Program, which "brings product-related content from third-parties onto Amazon to help customers research and discover products they might be interested in."
When Horse Side Vet Guide approached Alpha Particle, they had already invested a large amount of time and money into their existing infrastructure and offshore teams.
At the same time, shifting business strategy necessitated the need for their technology to adapt. They had built up users for their mobile app and a following for the website and and social media, but needed to make monetization and strategy changes.
Rewriting and rebuilding the entire platform was out of the question and HSVG engaged Alpha Particle to make the necessary changes while utilizing their existing technology.
1 Click Migration started with the a single goal: to be the most user-friendly and powerful migration plugin on the market. It wouldn't be the first, but the idea was that with just a couple steps, a user could move their site from one place to another by installing a single plugin. No worrying about storage, which host they were on, or technical specifications of each server, just a simple, straightforward migration.
Amazon announced last month that Alexa will now select partners in the healthcare industry to build skills that transmit protected health information in what they're calling a new "HIPPA-eligible environment".
InsideHook approached Alpha Particle to help with a redesign and replatforming of their existing site from a deprecated PHP framework onto WordPress and the WordPress.com VIP hosting platform.
The Alpha Particle team just got back from WordCamp US, the annual conference centered around the WordPress project. The topic on everyone's mind was, not surprisingly, Gutenberg and how the new editor experience that was released in WordPress 5.0 will shape the WordPress ecosystem going forward.
Alpha Particle is expanding and looking for a WordPress Developer who can tackle some of our production WordPress work. This means building custom themes (either completely from scratch or Child Themes) as well as plugins to fit our client's needs.
