1: An expert or enthusiast
2: A person obsessed with a hobby or intellectual pursuit.
We are programmers and geeks.
Wikipedia defines a geek as “an expert or enthusiast or a person obsessed with a hobby or intellectual pursuit.”
We can’t think of a better definition for the people in this crew. We are experts. We are enthusiasts. Also, we are obsessed with doing amazing work for each of our clients. We aren’t trendy or hip. We aren’t pretty, and we eat way too much bacon. We have seen too many trends come and go to hop on bandwagons as they come rolling along. We certainly know all the latest tricks, but we only use them if they make sense for your project.
What we do well is create websites that just plain ol’ work. We do things with databases most developers never even dreamed possible. It comes from never doing the same thing twice. We often create more custom tools and integrate with more complex APIs in one website than most developers will do in a lifetime. It’s just what we do. We manage your data. We translate your data. We chew it up and spit it out in an easy, manageable style that is useful to everyone.
You know who else we are? Nice guys.
The little developers that could.
The Gage Team is a small web firm that was founded back in 2006 when Matt Gage and Tim Johnson combined their talents to start a small tech firm. They quickly realized that web development and web hosting was what they were best at and began focusing exclusively on that.
Matt and Tim believed that looking out for their customers was the key to a successful business. That meant not only providing great customer service, but also providing tools and training to make sure that their customers were self-sufficient.
The team has grown and changed since those first days, but our focus is still the same. Every website we build is a one-of-a-kind original. No two businesses are the same, so why should they have the same website? First, we sit down with you to discuss your wants and needs, then develop a plan to make it happen. We build custom tools to make managing your data and the site easy for you and a pleasure for your customers.
Rolling with SandhillsWe obviously were doing something right, because in 2017 Sandhills Publishing approached us about becoming their preferred provider for premium websites. Our joint philosophy of taking care of our customers first made us a natural fit, while our focus on custom programming made us a logical partner for Sandhills customers that are looking for a more specialized web experience.
We promptly agreed we were a great fit and went to work building a newer, more modern version of our tried and true proprietary editor. Now based on WordPress, our new editor is as easy to use as it is powerful and flexible. When you add in Sandhills' diverse product offerings, we have one of the most powerful and diverse web platforms available anywhere. Give us a call to see how we can help grow your business.
