Caxy Helps International Code Council Improve Code Development Process

Caxy Code Creative

Caxy announced the launch of a custom-built app for the International Code Council, an organization that develops model codes used throughout the U.S. and abroad to design and construct safe, sustainable structures and ensure compliance with safe building standards. More than a year in the making, the new app will make it easier for all ICC members to collaborate and contribute to code development initiatives. To read the full article, please visit consupt.com.

The project is built using Symfony PHP on the back end and Angular on the front end. After evaluating several frameworks, Caxy chose Symfony over CodeIgnitor and Zend as it seemed to be the lightest weight PHP framework out there and provided the greatest amount of flexibility for the site.

The Angular javascript framework has become a favorite at Caxy. We love its ability to function as a single page application. Many of the approaches we took in this project to create decoupled front- and back-end code has paved the way for a new way of creating applications at Caxy. It allows different teams to focus on a single aspect of the project at a time.
