Backend development with a focus on performance and scalability

Intelligently engineered backends put a premium on performance and scalability in modern web applications. In today’s development environment there are a plethora of open source libraries and frameworks to choose from when developing new software solutions. Selecting the best technologies and implementing them correctly into applications can be difficult.

At NearForm we are at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies and are actively involved in contributing to and supporting the open source community. We understand the importance of building highly performant, scalable backend solutions and more importantly how to use these technologies to engineer applications that are engaging and reliable.

Modern microservice backend development

At NearForm we are full-stack development company that realises the importance of a great UX depends not only on the UI, but also on the backend and infrastructure that make applications run smoothly and efficiently.

We use cutting-edge, open source technologies, such as Node.js, to create stable, scalable and highly performant back-ends for the software solutions we develop.

We build modern solutions on a microservice architecture that breaks the application into loosely coupled, concentrated services. Applications built on microservices are easier to maintain and innovate as updates can be made to individual services without fear of breaking the entire application.

We build Restful APIs that microservices and outside applications use to communicate with each other with a focus on security, stability, performance and scalability.

As the single biggest contributor to Node.js runtime we have a unique understanding of how to implement Node.js into enterprise software solutions.

NearFormers are also contributing to the Node community by building tools that increase the performance of Node.js in applications, such as Fastify and Pino among others.

Rest APIs

Improve application performance, reduce CPU usage and build a stable infrastructure with a robust and secure Restful API in a microservice architecture

Backend development projects developed by NearFormers

fastify back-end development project

Fastify is a low-overhead, web framework for creating Rest APIs to manage efficient and highly performant web servers in Node.js. It is focused on a great developer experience without sacrificing performance and security.

pino back-end development project

Pino is the fastest logger for Node.js. Pino improves logging allowing Node.js to focus on more important processes such as event-loop handling resulting in better performance and less strain on the application during runtime.

NearForm’s enterprise software development approach

Our Front-end development engineers and Node.js experts can guide you with best practices for building maintainable, scalable, high-performance modern web applications. This includes Node.js Certification from the OpenJS Foundation and ongoing code-reviews and remote webinars.
Many of our engagements begin with a request for help on an existing problematic application. We have assisted some of the world’s biggest brands in rescuing and hugely improving apps that may have accumulated much technical debt or suffered from architectural mistakes early on.
As more and more organisations move from legacy stacks to JavaScript, they reach out to us for guidance on how best to achieve that. Whether it’s moving from .NET or Java to Node.js or just migrating to newer front-end frameworks like React, we can ensure you avoid many common pitfalls.
For organisations creating new fullstack JavaScript applications or all new front-ends on existing applications, NearForm’s expertise can be invaluable. From consulting, to workshops, to embedded capability building to full solutions, we have the skills to enable you to deliver quickly.
Our accelerators are a suite of starter applications and configurations which mean that you can do a week 1 demo of your project to your stakeholders. They take all of the knowledge of 150+ application builds and turn them into code and deployments.
