For about six years Tyrre Burks (see above wearing the New Yorker helmet) had played college and professional football, until one day he pulled his hamstring. He had a bad time trying to communicate with all his coaches and trainers about how he was getting to practice and what his responsibilities needed to be. Finally, Burks decided he would quit playing football and concentrate on building a platform for athletes that would allow them keeping closer in touch with their athletic staff, monitor injuries, and schedule training accordingly. However, when he came to us, he had only some general idea.

Words can't describe the gratitude I have for Devvela's timeliness, speed, and quality. They are definitely in a league of their own. Thank you so much for delivering such a phenomenal product us. I look forward to very prosperous relationship.

This is our first project based on ReactJS and Flux, as well as first experience in creating mobile app with Javascript. Other actively used technologies are BEM and ECMAScript 2015+. We actively used pair programming at the initial stages.




Despite all uncertainty, it took us only six weeks to turn the idea into a working application. We tried and rejected up to four variations before the final version of the product was built. Today Player’s Health is a high-load sports injury management platform for the Web and mobile devices. It’s been popular among investors from the very beginning. It has already developed a partnership with USA Wrestling, and could soon be ubiquitous in all middle and high school sports.
