- We are “Mobile First” developers
- We believe in and use Open Source Software
This means your distributed application will work completely on iOS & Android tablets, and all desktops & laptops. Your DApp (“Distributed App”) will work partially: ie for non-large-screen-dependent sections of the DApp, and naturally for contacts/messages/elastos mail/tasks/calendar integration and ‘Push’ notifications; on iPhones and Android phones. Our services are hosted on the
Elastos Smart Web.
For example, we integrate Individual Push Notifications with our mobile apps, to enable your database to instantly remind you of details of contacts (which you select when you are registering them), by a visible ‘Push’ notification to your phone as they ring. This service can be disabled for regular contacts.
Dennis Ritchie designed and created the ‘C’ Programming Language at AT & T’s Bell Labs between 1972-1973. Initially, it was for running UNIX utilities. The UNIX operating system was being developed by Ken Thompson at the same time. The pair had previously worked together on the creation of C’s predecessor, the ‘B’ programming language.
You are welcome to refer to Computers As Machines for a potted history of Computing with some references.
From the same Labs, from 1979 onwards, Bjarne Stroustrup developed C++ as an efficient extension of C but allowing the creation of new things called software “Objects”, which are Data Structures extended to include the necessary methods (functions) to deal with the data onboard the object, and enabling safer communication between these objects.
The Apache Software Foundation is a US-based non-profit organisation. Apache’s Maven Project assists us to build and integrate Java software reliably
In a similar way to Shipping Containers with Goods, Software “Containers” make life a lot easier for developers: Docker helps in moving software around the world.
We develop code and collaborate on GitHub – more of the work of Linus Torvalds!
A short word about our apps….
Immutable audit trails and multi-party transactions on Elastos Blockchain; mass Relational Data storage on Postgres Databases: Elastos P2P Carrier network to connect them (web-socket-safe).

Master Ledger::Transaction Journal catering for Multi-Party Transactions on the Elastos BlockChain:
ITCSA’s Accounting Solution, the ‘Block ‘n’ Tackle’
General Application Concept
- Elastos Blockchains are based on modern technology developed under the auspices of the Elastos Foundation.
- Our databases are built for predictability and reliability.
- The majority of your Business Transaction Data is stored on a Relational Database off the Chain and Business Process Data is copied amongst neighbouring nodes on-chain (devices) across the globe for safety security and redundancy..
- The Elastos Project is an Open Project involving many corporate and individual participants based on open-source code with strength deriving from its open-source nature.
- We use Elastos BlockChains as our Accounting Journal/Ledger System, in connection with Postgres Databases.
- Yours would be a Business Channel on a SideChain sharing a database system on that SideChain with other Business Channel owners in related networked businesses.
- Accordingly, unlike non-blockchain systems (where Superusers may change records on the database), the transactions recorded on BlockChains are not able to be changed by anyone at all, ever. Each device keeps the others honest.
- Unlike the Blockchains underpinning Bitcoin and others, the Elastos Blockchain is Permissioned not Anonymous so the identities of the users & entities who were involved in each transaction are recorded.
- With our Blockchains, “coin-mining” is involved, to ensure valid and sealed transactions.
- Blockchains provide other data processing advantages including Automatic, Real-time, Multi-Party-Validated Transactions a.k.a ‘Smart Contracts’
We follow the development Principles of Microservices, so that we break down apps into smaller functionally consistent parts, which are then contained and operated separately and clustered on participants’ devices with each Microservice connecting to the blockchain. In this way we obtain a much more fault-tolerant system.
- Our method of development ensures 100% functionality on all iOS and Android mobile tablet devices, and communication, contacts, tasks, calendar etc (plus ‘Push’ notifications) integration for mobile phones.
- This functionality is easy to generalise to desktop/laptop computers.
- It all just works. And fast.
It all starts in various garbled forms of English written in a very conformal fashion by many people; compiled and built on some computers; and ends by being “deployed” onto these and other computers, and onto networks of other devices, to begin working, making decisions, accepting inputs, transferring data, producing outputs, recording information and using Boolean Algebra, the hardwired “machinic intelligence” of a computer, to perform logical and numerical computations. ]
