This document outlines the particulars of our development environment in terms of development IP, code and ownership. As our client, all code and unique processes developed for our project together are owned by you. Any pre-existing code we take advantage of (our “base” module which provided added speed and efficiency) is owned by us, and we provide you with a perpetual license to take advantage of this which becomes an asset to your business. This structure allows for rapid development as well as giving you full access to your code (whether you want to manage hosting, bring on other developers or sell your business), while protecting all parties involved.
What this means for you as a client:
To develop world-class projects we use world-class open source code. Everything we develop is built in the Laravel framework using PHP code.

Why we use a base module for projects:
When working on a project, these are the common sources of IP and ownership:
Why protect our base module:
How are you impacted:
As a final note, we're flexible. Our main goal is to protect ourselves and protect you as our client, and stop our code from being taken advantage of by other developers, or putting security at risk.
