we craft web tech

You've got to wear lots of different hats to build competitive web apps today. At Code Hat Labs we wear them all, and we wear them with glowing pride.

We bring deep experience, passion, and creativity to every project we pursue. We prize art as function, beauty as utility, and play as work; it's the Code Hat way.

webcraft takes lots of code hats...

The Mobile Web

Most web traffic these days is mobile. That trend is still growing. We build your tech for mobile first, then we adapt it for the desktop. And if your project needs it we will make native Android and iOS apps for you.

Scalable Cloud Deployment

Your web app will scale fast to meet peak traffic surges. As more visitors come to your site, more machines come on line to serve them. At slower times the extra machines shut down. It's like magic.

Automated Test and Ship

We ship updates every day during development. We build tests to protect what already works. When we add new features, your code tests itself and refuses to ship if something got broken.
