Grandma’s Jars is a revolutionary budgeting application which is the brainchild of Phil McGilvray. This projet was wonderful to work on as it had a tremendous amount of moving parts and a lot of data that had to be tracked and worked with in order to guarantee proper planning and the best results for its users.
In addition to being a budgeting application, the system allows for users to work within the app with their budget coaches, leaving notes, discussing possible alternate budgets and scheduling appointments.
The system was built within the Yii Framework. Code Ninjas was responsible for development, project management and planning.
This project was done in associate with Growth Labs.
This project represented a complete overhaul to the Esri Corporations Korean branch. It introduced content in multiple languages, offered a customized online learning system, purchase of offline training, integration with Salesforce for tracking clients and tech support tickets, integration with Desk.com for customer service, live chat, and a sleu of other services to modernize the website to work with an international client base.
The site was build with WordPress for ease of updating and maintaining but included a substantial amount of custom development.
LattePress is an internal project being developed by Code Ninjas. It is slated to launch in the first quarter of 2017 and will be an alternative for smaller clients who are looking to have a well-designed, visually impressive and functional WordPress website, without having to hire a development team.
The system learns as you use it, understanding your needs and how your website is built, and builds you a custom tutorial system so users will be able to build their sites completely on their own, even with little to no techncial background.
The service and site will be offered free to the public as a service of Code Ninjas.
The core system was intentionally buillt on WordPress due to its content but is overwhelmingly custom development.
This was an incredibly interesting project to work on, however like many of our clients, our NDA prevents us from giving too many details. As this was a brand new idea which we want to keep safe for our clients we will only give you a small idea of what the system does.
The administrative database scans the internet using various APIs to condense a tremendous amount of information into a filterale, searchable and editable database for the client’s staff.
This allows the cornerstone of their business to be substantially more efficient and automate a lot of the processess they have when dealing with their own clients.
This system was built on the Yii Framework.

What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our clients do the talking!
My name is Phil McGilvray I am a partner in one of Australia’s leading Stockbroking and Financial Planning firms, I am also the owner and founder of Grandma’s Jars online budgeting. I have had the privilege to work with Dan and more recently Code Ninjas for the best part of two years now. Dan has helped bring my dream of a subscription based online budgeting and financial coaching platform to life. I was so impressed with the process Dan took me through to really capture and understand the essence of what I was after, from initial discussion, to the 100 + page spec document, to building the framework and then breaking the task into milestones that allowed me to follow along with each stage of the project. Having had some negative experiences with previous developers it was important that I had a detailed timeline and costing for each section of the project, Dan provided this and kept both to time and budget. Through our many discussions I have also come to understand that Dan has a real heart to serve his clients and provide them with the best possible come. I am only too happy to recommend Dan to anyone looking to take on a development project.Phil McGilvray
My name is Grant Phillips and I am the owner of Growth Labs Marketing. I’ve been working with Dan for about 4 years now. As a person who has had to deal with all sorts of levels of development companies, I can say with confidence that working with Dan is a breath of fresh air. He’s been a stable partner that has handled the majority of our development for all of our projects excellently. I always feel relaxed knowing that Dan’s on top of the project. From start to finish he finds the questions we had not even thought to ask, he finds the best solution to match our client’s budgets and goals.
As an agency who is dedicated to making our customers happy, it’s important to me that we work with providers who are interested in long term quality relationships while producing the best product possible. We’ve found that with Code Ninjas.Grant Phillips
I have been working with Daniel for the past three months and very pleased with the outcome. Unlike other developers, after discussing my brief on the deliverables, Daniel researches possible ways to improve the effectiveness of the website, to have the best possible outcome. I truly appreciate his suggestions and innovative ways to improve my website. Also, Daniel is very efficient with his responses to follow up, usually the work is done within 24 from our discussions. I recommend working with Daniel for his efficiency, creativity and general pleasant nature.Shereen T.
I got a recommendation for Code Ninjas from one of my Czech/American employees. At that time, I had been contacting many IT companies for a new company web page recommendations and quotes as it was a relatively big project. At the first meeting I was highly impressed with their detailed nineteen page project sheet full of recommendations and functionality requirements. After going through it with the owner, I immediately decided he is the right person to cooperate with. He has launched my webpage on the time agreed. I have been consistently impressed with his attitude, productivity and professionalism during the time that he worked on this project.
He has also been effective in his efforts to engage all my employees participating on this project. I never needed to remind him, ask for feedback or next steps as he was doing it automatically after completing certain steps of the project. He has just made work so much easier and I highly appreciated it due to my constant travelling and a work load.
I don’t think I have ever met a person with such a great work attitude and professionalism. He has got my great admiration for that. I recommend Code Ninjas without reservations. I am confident that he will attain all your targets and plans within a schedule. I’m pretty certain he will exceed your expectations.
