Why Box Elder?

  1. We can handle most any development task. A diverse mix of clients and projects over the years has given us experience with myriad frameworks, programming languages and other technologies. Our clients can attest to how fast we pick up new things. See our services page for details.
  2. We pay attention to the details, so that not only are your layouts pixel-perfect, but each URL is the simplest possible description of the page's content. All code is kept to an absolute minimum so that not only we, but anyone, can maintain it easily, saving you money down the road.
  3. Change happens, and we plan our projects to allow for it. You'll be involved from the beginning, interacting with real prototypes periodically. This allows for feedback as well as timely status updates.
  4. We're firm believers that flakiness doesn't belong in either personal or business life. You'll enjoy prompt, honest communication, whether the news is good or bad.

Who is this guy anyway?

Alec LaLonde grew up in the woods of Northern New York. He was fortunate enough to attend an excellent public high school, earning scholarships to make attending the Rochester Institute of Technology more affordable. He graduated early with a BS in Computer Science, managing to fit in a semester at the Universität Osnabrück as well as a year of internships at three different companies. In 2007, a yearning for mountains led him to move across the country to Salt Lake City, UT, where he spent over three years building web-based enterprise Java applications. Since 2010 he's been living the dream of self-employment, working on interesting projects with fantastic clients.
Alec can often be found skiing the steep slopes and climbing the sheer cliffs and frozen waterfalls of the lofty Wasatch Mountains.
