Fractal Ideas

We boost your technical team's ability to meet present and future challenges.

Expertise

Django & Python

Fractal Ideas was created by Aymeric Augustin, a long-time Django core developer and technical board member.

He spent years developing and operating all kinds of web applications and information systems. He knows Django and its ecosystem inside out.

He can help making design decisions, implementing tricky features, integrating with third party systems, reviewing code, auditing security, etc.

Big data

What data does your business generate? How are you storing, processing, and exploiting it? How could you make it more useful, faster?

We help big and small companies take advantage of modern technologies to optimize their data platforms and provide business insights.

We also advise on regular (not big) data analysis questions, building upon the reference open-source tools written in Python.

Architecture

As the technical landscape of the web keeps growing and evolving, making the right choices is more important than ever.

If you're starting fresh, we can help you select the most appropriate solutions for your present and future use cases.

If you're hitting limitations of existing systems, we can figure out a plan to refactor them without stalling new features.

Values

Focus on people

Improving your engineers' skills, both individually and as a team, is critical to the long term success of your company.

We don't hand out definitive solutions. Instead we ask the right questions to help them come up with good answers.

We want every person on the team to understand what they're doing, why they're doing it, and embrace collective choices.

Pragmatic solutions

We believe in open discussions, rough consensus and working code rather than thick slide decks and lengthy audit reports.

We like building robust systems upon proper data modelization and separation of concerns reflected in well-defined APIs.

We meet today's requirements with simple and flexible solutions in order to be able to tackle tomorrow's challenges.

High technical standards

In the web's fast-paced environment, lacking attention to details takes its toll on quality quickly.

New features aren't delivered on schedule. Systems become sluggish. Sometimes they get breached.

We set uncompromising expectations of security, performance, and maintainability. Then we show you how to meet them.
