We’re trying to keep everything simple to start and just focus the core of Crowd Kode around
a couple of simple concepts:
Custom Development costs a ton - creating it and managing it. But,
so much of custom development all stems from the same types of coding languages, platforms,
frameworks and features. So,
Crowd Kode is a place where you can find others who
need those same exact tech and/or features
(or at least most of them) and then you all just essentially split the cost(s) of development.
Day to day, Members can vote on which tech we work on developing (and creating) on a daily basis.
Thus, actively creating the most voted on and hence, most in-demand tech and features.
And, once those features (or solutions) are created, the Founding
Members split 75% of the profits from revenues, new memberships or existing downloads that
those features generate. Simple.
Once we reach enough paying Members (because we offer a
free Membership too), then Crowd Kode
will also be able to provide an affordable On-Demand Project
Management Services as well.
Imagine not having to post a job, talk to developers (or designers) and just being able to post
what you need and we come back to you with a best-price (and timeline), which if you agree your
project will instantly start and be delivered when done.
The Crowd Kode Team will handle, take care of and do all the management, corresponding,
testing, review, discussion, discovery (on the development + planning side), even setting up
development environments (including FTP Accounts and SSH credentials) - everything.
For now, we just want to focus on building the community as fast as possible - because we know
a ton of people need these kinds of services.
Development prices are mega expensive and soaring - and you have to truly understand
the complex nature of the freelancer market to really know how and why it’s so risky and such
a bad way to try to create, nuture and evolve technology into anything useful and valuable -
not to mention worth your time and money.
SSU’s CODE-Installer - a custom software
installation technology that we created to
automatically install most of the cool tech (ie. SquareTech) and software/code-based solutions we create that
are powered by Square’s API and work with Square’s various POS versions and equipment.
It usually takes just 10-30 seconds for a single instance of our code/tech to automatically install. See the
How It Works page to learn more.

Who We Are
We’re a Chicago-based Technology Solutions company -
that specializes in creating high quality Native Mobile Apps, Responsive Websites, Web Apps, Software,
APIs, Frameworks, SDKs (software development kits for apps), etc.
We’ve been creating solutions for 20+ years and in that time we’ve
amassed a heck of a lot of technology, expertise, best practices, etc.
Our current digital IP Portfolio
is worth about $5M+. IP = Intellectual Property. That means all the
stuff we make that’s unique that can be used to create mobile apps, websites, etc. How do we know it’s
worth $5M+? Good question. Here’s that answer »
Yes, we’ve tried the VC-route and it wasted more valuable time than it helped. And, since we’re typically
2-5 years ahead of everybody, which has secured us some very big partnerships, we figured it was about time
we tried a different approach.
Made for Entrepreneurs by Entrepreneurs
Most of the popular technology platforms these days were made specifically
with Developers in mind and don’t even come with front-ends or UI/UX,
thus making it extremely difficult to imagine or even envision what the
end-product would even look like.
Crowd Kode, however, focuses on creating tech that’s
ready to go out-of-the-box - with a high emphasis on front-end and UI/UX,
in addition to the underlying code and architecture.
