It’s easy for an open office space to develop a negative atmosphere. One employee starts complaining about a particular piece of tech or a legacy codebase, and everyone in earshot piles on. The result: A 15-minute whinge-fest (look it up) with no clear gains and some definite downsides.
At Radial Development Group, we build a wide range of software applications. But even varied projects often have similar technical issues. One common customer request is the ability to upload lots of data to an app at once using a CSV file.
Radial recently created an application for the Loveland Museum. It’s an iPad game that teaches students how to correctly address an envelope. As a company, we decided to donate the work involved in building this application as a service to our community.
Recently Radial built a small iPad application aimed at children. We worked with an illustrator to create a fun character for the app named Pete the Carrier Pigeon. We wanted Pete to come alive in a few of the views with some simple animations. Here’s how we did it.
ustom software is very exciting. The possibilities are almost limitless, and you can build something that may become core to your business or your brand.

It’s not news that women in tech often suffer from a lack of confidence. It’s also no surprise that a lack of confidence translates into worse outcomes for women. This could range from lower pay to fewer promotions.
Figuring out client priorities is a key part of application development. It’s not an easy task. Here at Radial we’ve developed a web application to help us do this better.
Here at Radial, we work hard to maintain a strong company culture, focused on our core values. Culture is so important to us that we sometimes say we are a culture company, not a software company (more on that soon). We want everything that happens within our office to reflect our core values.
So many testing how-to blogs tell you how to write the tests or how to run the suite, or describe a bunch of tools, and end there. They make the assumption that you know how to set up the test runner to work with your application.
Here’s a short guide to getting started writing expectations with Chai.
I recently had the opportunity to attend the Women in Tech Summit, an event held in Denver to celebrate and provide support to women of all ages within the tech industry.
Radial Development Group recently collaborated with >Women Rising to release a significant update to the mentorship feature for the site.
