Develop

Tailored software for your research project needs from our in-house software development team, for example: web pages, web applications, or mobile apps. We rely strongly on the agile principles and open-source software components and technologies. Our strongest expertise covers, for example: PHP, Python, NodeJS, Java, Html, Css, XML, JavaScript, React, MySQL / MariaDB, PostgreSQL, WordPress, and Drupal.

The best result is achieved when scientists contact our development team at an early stage, before applying for funding. This allows us to take into account all your needs and make a realistic budget that covers both software development and maintenance costs. We also help in purchasing software development from external vendors.

We also invite software developers from various departments or research groups at the University of Turku to join our team’s Slack channel. Developers working alone will thus get involved in the developers’ community, learn about the university’s internal rules and guidelines, and have opportunity to discuss the challenges they face with other software professionals. You can also come to discuss issues related to software architecture, modern working methods, deployment requirements and practices with our developers.

For more information, you can reach our software development team through softdev@utu.fi.
