Working closely with the founder, Stephen, we took the loose specification and developed a rough first-draft of the site. From this we were able to rapidly iterate and add the features and interfaces that were necessary for a good user experience that had not been immediately apparent on the first pass.

There has been a significant amount of energy put towards polishing the user interactions and ensuring that the site is as resilient as possible.

Monit has been installed to ensure that all processes are alive and well, with Unicorn and Nginx providing the app and web servers. Thinking Sphinx has been used for the search system with Carrierwave coupled to S3 for asset upload and image manipulation.

When I first approached Matt about Dvour, it was clear after the first few email exchanges that he was the right person to execute my ideas. Matt has the rare gift of applying technical knowledge to create simple, yet effective, solutions. Matt is an excellent communicator that understands the importance of listening to the client. Matt will take your vision and make it a reality.
