Development Articles

One of our company mottos is “Think. Code. Repeat.” We do some of the first part of that motto on this blog. You’ll find several web and mobile development articles that reflect our current thinking on a variety of topics.

We try to be thoughtful about every aspect of our service. We spend a lot of energy thinking through why we do what we do, rarely choosing a mode of operation just because it’s the way something’s always been done.

We’ve written articles about everything from website pricing to the best type of contracts to deployment models, our value proposition, and more.

Pull up a chair, you just might learn something! :)

Budget Time For Approvals

The Importance of Code Review | Non-technical Leader Tips


I’ve been on big teams working for nationwide brands where no one is formally responsible for code quality. It was a nightmare.

I reached out to Buink after finding Ben’s name in a local developer/consultant listing in 2017, and I have to say, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with Buink. Ben consistently understands not just the development task laid in front of him but the business application behind the task. I’ve... never felt more comfortable with a development team than I do with Buink. I truly feel Ben and his team are integral partners in the success of my more

I could not recommend Buink Web Development more highly. Ben and his team have recently developed a budgeting app for me (both web and IOS). I have had the opportunity of working with them for over a year and I am extremely happy with the results.I would say that the biggest plus for me is that I... trust Ben completely. From the very first, Ben has helped me make decisions that were in the best interest of my company. I have never felt like he is taking advantage of me. Ben does his best to keep the whole process very open and upfront. I have really appreciated that.I tell people all the time that I love my developers. And I do. I'm very happy that I chose to use Buink to develop my apps. It was the best business decision I could have made.If you are looking for someone to develop a website or app, I strongly suggest choosing Buink Web Development. They are fantastic!Marilyn Ference, President, Defend Your Money, LLCread more
