“Xeodev made our product "Mr. Sorter" amazing! Xeodev’s creative use of the most modern programing techniques linked with their creative thinking is simply genius. David and his team have taken our software solution to a level of sophistication and functionality that we did not even dream of when we first started. I would recommend David and Xeodev to anyone looking for an inspired software package."
- Mark Ahrens, CEO Landmark Software

“I worked with Xeodev on a website project that was a bit complicated, for my Coptic Basketball Tournament, in 2014. They did a great job listening to what I was looking for and delivered it in a great time. I would hire Ramy and his team again, and I highly recommend his service.”
- John Mansour, Director of SUSL Tournament

Patrick Mathern Patrick Mathern

“What sets XeoDev apart from others is their attention to detail and their responsiveness. Hiring tech help is often a frustrating experience fraught with miscommunication. Not the case with XeoDev - emails are always answered quickly and they make time to take my calls, even when I know they have a lot of other projects going on simultaneously. In addition, it's refreshing that XeoDev speaks "business" just as well as they speak "tech." They realize that their services are an investment that businesses expect to earn a return on and they help keep an eye on the bottom line. I would recommend XeoDev without hesitation.”
- Patrick Mathern, President of 23 Degrees Consulting

Current Focus: Upgrading Security


Security is a mindset not a checklist. Security isn't something you get to once you scale. It gets you significant customers to scale.

As agency, we laugh as we remember that our first client is a professional negotiator in the defense industry. What a way to start our new agency! This project has been amazing as it grew from an idea into an MVP and is now adding customers. The Security requirements for selling into the defense industry are very high. They use a process called FedRamp that makes HIPPA look like preschool. FedRamp itself requires over $1m, thousands of pages of documentation, and a year long audit.

This journey has taken us through a lot of security concerns, issues and some real life attacks.
Security is now a main differentiator for our agency both on the technology side and the human side. We now apply a large set of standard operating procedures to how we configure Apache, what HTTP headers we send, how we track login and asset access. Our backup policies provide recovery and replication alternatives. Authentication security can be augmented with SSO and MFA with LibSodium on the server. Our stack now includes both the StackPath WAF and Cloudflare CDN as standard components.

On the documentation side we provide fair use documents, disaster recovery plans, security protocol docs. We are tracking security bulletins, informing our customers on new threats, and applying security learnings across all our active projects.



Please consider security as a big deal when choosing a technology partner.

Font Awesome

Font Awesome is one of the best updates to modern web design. This started the icon font movement that now standardizes common icons and provides them in a simple to use CSS format that works like a normal font. Gone are the days of paying a graphic artist to draw or recolor an icon. Page load speed is dramatically improved and its updated all the time.
