mbarking on a journey as entrepreneurs with a dear friend, we set out to conquer the tech industry. However, the reality of the business world soon set in.
Our first client was a small business that required a checker for their employees and a program that could handle payroll efficiently. While not a particularly challenging project, it gave us the opportunity to explore and experiment with different technologies.

object models. For instance, on the GET
