Mental Hijack is focused on building web applications which are powerful, useful, and easy to use.
we believe that in order to create incredibly awesome software, the development process must be approached from the point of view of the user and not that of the technology. this is the concept behind the buzzwords user-centered design, usability or Human Computer Interaction (HCI). but it’s super tough figuring out what users need and the discovery process can be considered more of a dark art than a science.
this is the basis of our name – Mental Hijack – sneaking into the minds of our users to discover what they need so that we can create and deliver great, usable software. [by the way, we do this with the use of our magical Cranial Probes]
our software is chock full of the best acronyms and buzzwords from the world of software engineering. we like Unit Testing, OOD, RIA, HCI, XP, XML, and REST, just to name a few. we choose our buzzwords carefully and take them seriously so that your experience is always solid and consistent.
