Backend App Development

While front end development deals with the user interface of your app, and what your users will see, backend developers deal with how your app interfaces with everything else, and what your users will be able to do.


What is backend app development?

Backend app development is about the parts of your app that the users don’t see - APIs, logic, servers, architecture and more, all the things you need to make sure your app is able to do what you need it to smoothly and efficiently. 

What can backend app development do for your business?

Backend app development is a core part of every app development - it’s about delivering the basics of the app’s functionality, but it’s also about augmenting your app through connecting it to external services. Shopify is an incredibly powerful commerce platform, but backend app development can help to make it the perfect platform for your brand.

Data is at the heart of the modern commerce brand - it’s what helps drive decisions, it’s what builds budgets, it’s where your customers live. But it’s also important to your customers - it’s their history with your brand. We make sure to mark your moving boxes well, clean up and get it all to your new home in perfect condition.
