At Codehouse we are proud to say that we have assembled a team of .NET superstars who are forever honing their web development skills and garnering .NET technical know-how in order to be able to solve web-related challenges for our expanding and diverse collection of clients.

We also know a thing or two about CMS – especially Sitecore and Umbraco.

Our developers are constantly being... well, developed. And to keep their knowledge and competencies up-to-date we attend events such as BarCamp!

But we're not just .NET web-nerds. We also understand business and strive to bridge the gap between commercial and technology, and so help our clients realise their online ambitions.

Here at Codehouse we work hard, play hard and code hard. Do ask us what we do and how we do it. We’ll be the ones wearing t-shirts with “Codehouse” emblazoned across the front!


TwentyFourNine is a tiny web development outfit specialising in web apps. Founded in 2009, it is the brainchild of London resident Ruben Arakelyan.

They have worked with lots of individuals and organisations large and small, some well-known, some not so much, from universities to record labels to create websites and web apps ranging from educational to entertainment. They are also behind the popular net:Base web app for netball teams and leagues as well as other commercial and open source tools.

They are always interested in working with other talented people to create amazing things, so why not come up and say hello any time during the two days?

They are proud to sponsor BarCamp London for the first time in 2011 and will be providing you with lunch.

We love working in the cloud, and as such develop almost solely using services like Google App Engine. As Potato continues to grow we’re also on the hunt for developers to join our team.
