Zaval.org is a public association, core of which comprises four professional software
developers - the founders of the Group, who gathered together to develop a new kind of
software -- creative software.
What is creative software? It is not software that directs support of human's creative
activities. From the point of view of year 2002, this is software developed under a
special process that facilitates software properties. Our work is not about software
in itself; it is rather about software developers doing the work differently. Think as
Apple Inc. - simply think different.
The main activities domains of Zaval CE Group are:
- Publicizing of knowledge and experience through useful software via open publications;
- Research in the field of software development patterns and development process automation;
- Research in the field of agile software development processes;
- Research of early access technologies and development of experimental software (see Black Mesa Research Lab)
The work of the Zaval CE Group is divided between three major divisions:
Process and Methodology,
Research and Technology, and Resources.
Each of these divisions, in turn, has its own departments, responsible for certain
aspect of the work we do.
Process and Methodology supplies all information about us, our activities,
as well as information on how we do what we do, aiming the full cycle of
the software development and production. The Research and Technology division
is responsible for experimental, research and software construction works.
Resources provide additional information about the products we use, technologies we investigate,
as well as our own view on software development.
The Zaval CE Group core has a long experience in wide range of modern technologies,
including network and Web related architectures, such as multi-tier and web-oriented
enterprise level. The Zaval CE Group has great experience with cross-platform enterprise
level solutions, including clusters, distributed calculations, large data collections
processing, fail-over and fault-tolerant techniques and systems.
