Period of involvement: 2011
It's amazing what can be accomplished when the right tool is used for the right job.
Some companies could have taken 5 weeks in order to discuss and strategies on how they could employ clunky non-native technologies in order to speed up the development cycles for their upcoming app, because hiring or learning native development in-house would be too much of an investment for them.
Instead the clients above contacted me with their designs, a clear idea of what they wanted, and a line to their API: Sport/Thema/Agronews are all based off a single theme-able codebase which took 3 weeks to make. Cheapis and Soby took 1 week each.
