The “X”

Three years ago we started something of unthinkable.

My 4th company – DyCode, a software development company – has been around 8 years at the time of this story.

Back in 2009, when DyCode’s offering and revenue around Line of Business (LoB) applications – that we built around web technologies, .NET, SharePoint, VSTO – got matured, I quickly got bored and chose to explore new technologies. By the launch of the first iPhone by Apple, then followed by the introduction of App Store and iPhone SDK in 2008, it marked the new wave of mobile application industry. I quickly explored the iPhone SDK, register to Apple’s iPhone developer program, developed boring sample projects that finally lead into our 1st iPhone application in May 2010, Movreak. Long story short, in 2010 DyCode was one of the first handful pioneers in iPhone application development in Indonesia, and started to offer custom app development services around it, which at that time we helped Astra International transitioning from legacy BlackBerry apps into iPhone OS-based apps. DyCode was fully transitioned into mobile apps development in 2012 by leveraging our expertise in iOS app development, that’s soon followed by other platforms: Nokia Symbian, MeeGo, S40, Series 60 (which all now already “dead”), then Windows Phone and Android.
