What We've Done

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. Freelock built a website that facilitates and supports the community through membership, training, classes, and merchandising.

Freelock developed an informational website for Answers for Elders. Answers for Elders is an online resource for adults caring for elderly parents. We created a membership system for users to comment publicly on articles, a map-based decision guide for retrieving locational information, and example articles for composition purposes.

Geocko builds powerful tools that save time and increase engagement for nonprofit organizations. Geocko hired Freelock to build a system that would pull in information from designated social media feeds (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc) and display it in a grid of tiles.

Bonavita World Homepage

In early 2014, our friends at Bonavita came to Freelock requesting that we help manage their main website Espresso Supply. Soon thereafter, they wanted to launch a website for one of their brands, Bonavita. But it wasn't until early summer that they were ready to realize those dreams. 

The International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH), a non-profit collaboration between the University of Washington and the University of California, San Francisco. ITECH came to Freelock for help building an internal system to improve collaboration and communication within their organization.

The Olympic Peninsula Tourism Board came to us in early 2009 to assist them in developing a visually stunning and highly functional website in a Content Management System. The site needed to be flexible enough to be managed by the 12 partners of the OPTC represented by local Chamber of Commerces. This meant the system needed to not only be able of handling complex permissions, but also easy to use and train new members.

DanceSafe hired Freelock to perform maintenance and upgrades to their Drupal website. DanceSafe is a non-profit harm reduction organization promoting health and safety within the rave and nightclub community.

We worked with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s (FHCRC) Shared Resources Library staff and the eagle-i team to create a customized Drupal module. It was designed to reside within the existing Shared Resources website and copies the sites content to the local eagle-i node which then hands the data along to eagle-i central for inclusion in the master directory. FHCRC now only needs to create or edit content in one location (their Drupal site) and once published, key elements of that same material are instantly pushed to the eagle-i network.

This is a collection of technical notes, tips, and tricks related to Freelock Computing's services and various open source projects. We document what sorts of things we do to get software to work, and keep it here for our benefit, but also for yours.

What we can do for you

Event management. Project management. Vendor management. ECommerce. We build sites to help you organize and get things done.

Sample checklist

We solve problems.

Lots of our business comes from people who have been unable to get the job done elsewhere.

The challenge with any web project is usually budget -- getting a polished, usable product to match a specific design can take far more budget than people expect. Our approach to addressing this concern is breaking down projects into Sprints, each sprint a focused group of tasks with a defined budget, starting with the things that will deliver the most business value as early as possible.

And then when the first sprint is done, we've delivered something of business value, we plan out the next one.

The launch of a new web site is the start of the project, not the end. You don't stop marketing when you've opened a new store -- marketing is an ongoing activity to keep the world aware you exist.

And even if a site is purely for internal use, organizations change and evolve over time. Most of our clients work with us on a monthly retainer basis, setting aside budget for steady work towards the current business goals.

Sample TCO

When you work with Freelock, you're not just getting a passive subcontractor. We bring opinions to the table. You hire us because we have decades of experience in a variety of industries, and knowledge of things that work and things that don't.

We partner with our customers to find the best solutions to help them succeed. And we're not shy about advocating some approaches over others, or pushing back when we think you're heading down a dead end.

We're not the cheapest shop out there, but with us you're getting more than just a developer -- you're getting a partner who can steer you clear of technology pitfalls, suggest possible new revenue streams or marketing outlets or workflow improvements -- we  deliver strategic value to your business along with our technical solutions.

  1. Freelock computing is, in my experience, unique in that they have assembled a comprehensive, well-rounded team of technical specialists yet they function on a high level together as a team. The Freelock team is adept at speaking in human, non-technical terms  when discussing projects with laypeople.
    Throughout the development process we inevitably came to many decision points in terms of which direction we would continue, and Freelock was always instrumental in counseling us through the merits and liabilities of the choices in front of us.
