Dave & Anh Le

We’re a company of two because that is the only way to guarantee outstanding results. In other words, we complete all your SilverStripe work with our  bare hands. You communicate directly with us every day. No account managers, no average developers, no language or cultural barriers. Simply two SilverStripe specialists – motivated to listen and serve, from start to finish.

 

Anh Le

Originally from  Vietnam, I now co-run ThatByThem in the Philippines. I am a full stack developer with 8+ years of experience in PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and JQuery. I'm very passionate about the SilverStripe framework. Keeping the agency small allows me to do what I love every day: working directly with clients, not managing staff.

Dave Hennessy

I'm a developer with 10+ years of hands-on coding experience. I have extensive experience working with 2 of the most popular stacks: PHP/MySQL (over 10 years of experience) and  (8 years of experience working with the SilverStripe platform). When I am not working, I'm enjoying the sunny days in the Philippines.

PSD To SilverStripe

Your PSD design, sliced and hand coded into a high-quality, fully functional SilverStripe site. You get a SilverStripe theme that works flawlessly across all popular browsers and devices, keeping both users and search engines happy. Once we're done slicing, coding and cross-browser testing your theme, we upload it to a staging server where you can take it for a test drive. Next, you share your comments and feedback, and we will do all the necessary tweaking before handing you over the completed site. We will work tirelessly with you to ensure you are 100% happy with the conversion.

Web Design

Everyone wants a beautiful website that works on mobiles, tablets, and desktops. And we have taken that requirement one step further. The SilverStripe sites we build for you use themestripe, our block builder functionality as its foundation. This allows you to have more control over how and what you would like to appear on your website. You can add call-to-actions, sections, and move around blocks on your website to improve your performance. You won’t be locked to a single design or layout. As your business grows, you can make changes to your site to reflect that growth. Our sites grow with you over time.

Training

We do more than just deliver websites. Aside from providing you with top-notch sites, we will also help you become more knowledgeable on SilverStripe. We use Remote Desktop Training to teach you how to master this content system. It usually takes an hour or two to turn you into a more SilverStripe savvy individual. We will share your PC screen and guide you on how to make changes and how to become a competent administrator of your website.  This is a fantastic way of learning how to take more control over your website and reduce the cost of maintenance, updating, and administration.
