We are a boutique consultancy based in Victoria, with team members in Vancouver and elsewhere, focused on web and mobile app development, for clients across North America and users around the world.
Leanpub is our own startup. Authors and publishers use Leanpub to publish amazing in-progress and completed books. So far, we've paid over $5 million in royalties to our authors, over $1 million of which was paid in the past year. Leanpub books are written using a lightweight process called Lean Publishing, in which authors or publishers can publish a new version of their book with one click. Because of this, books can be published in-progress, which is great for all kinds of books, from computer programming books (Leanpub's specialty) to business books to serial fiction.
