Phihong is a company that engineers and produces power supplies. The client had built a new responsive front-end website. Olga was hired to add administrative functionality that would allow the client to change site’s content, do bulk updates from a csv, upload files, and backup the database. Olga designed the database for the site’s content (products, news releases, employment), built a PHP CodeIgniter API, and added administrative user interface accessible through a log-in.

Asset Management System

Our client produces and installs digital and other stationary devices across North America. We built a system that allows the client to monitor their devices and ensure that everything is going smoothly both leading up to, and after installation.

The software we developed checks the status of digital devices using various APIs supplied by device manufacturers, and alerts the client if there is an issue. It includes a task list that lets managers add to-do items to any device. Devices and issues are grouped by location, with maps to help visualize where problems are occurring. The system can be used both internally by our client as well as by their clients so that they can see and manage the status of their own devices.

For this project we used our favourite frameworks: CodeIgniter to structure and simplify back-end, Knockout.js for robust lightning-fast front-end, and jQueryUI for attractive and intuitive widgets. Thanks folks!



Diffbot is a Silicon Valley start-up that specializes in machine learning algorithms that analyze and extract information from websites. Olga worked with Diffbot to make their algorithms available to programmers using the Octave programming language. Olga created an Octave library with full support for Diffbot’s API.

Thanks to Olga and others, Diffbot now has support in 36 different languages.

The 100-Mile Child

The features Olga implemented include a custom-built shopping cart with Moneris checkout, a gift registry/wish list, product ratings, comments, user accounts for returning customers, and a back-end administrative interface.

David designed a series of new virtue icons to support these new features, as well as making seasonal changes to the design of the site, and miscellaneous other layout components.
