A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Staying organized can be a real challenge. There is a lot to keep up within your day-to-day work, and if you ever take a moment to stop and look around at your servers and environments, you may just end up giving yourself a small panic attack. Everything tends to pile up, and no matter if you are a programmer, sysadmin, or IT manager, you can use all the help you can get staying on top of it all.
Fortunately, we have a SaaS solution for you. With Config, all your configuration files are in one place. Config is designed to make managing your configurations across all servers and environments simpler than it has ever been. You have the ability to synchronize common configuration settings, incorporate environment variables, and examine the differences that distinguish each environment. Our web interface is direct and intuitive, and there is no infrastructure required to get started. With support for public and private environments using multiple deployment models, Config is the answer to all your problems when it comes to staying ahead of your configuration responsibilities.
As a programmer, sysadmin, or IT manager, the benefits of Config are clear. You no longer need to worry about falling behind when it comes to managing your configuration files, regardless of how many environments or systems you are actually working with. Forget about the added stress that comes with each new configuration: Config makes it fast and simple for you to integrate whatever you need through a single web interface that we have engineered for ease of use.

Here's our current pricing plan, which is subject to change.
Config was started in 2017 with two primary objectives. The first objective is to build a product company for the long term. A company where employees would want to work because they, and the work they do, matter. It’s not going to be a startup looking for funding with an exit strategy even before it started. A family-owned company that can be passed down to the next generation. The second objective is to create a scholarship program for less fortunate kids. Kids who have the passion for learning but can’t go to school because they lack the financial means to do so. Seeing kids move on to good careers, helping improve their family’s quality of life, is what keeps us going.
We are an IT company and we understand the pain points that programmers, sysadmins and IT managers go through. We want to do something about it, and would like to share it to the IT community.

Risks and challenges
Config is under development and we are planning to go into private beta in January. We have a working prototype and we are confident that we will release the app, as soon as it passes all our internal reviews and testing. The major challenge for us is to build enough marketing buzz during these early stages of the project, and to build a strong user base to keep the app profitable by end of 2018.
