Fast and Interactive Apps

Today's Customer Experiences require Interactivity and Usability

LaunchPad Lab is a full-service web design and development studio that focuses on growing our clients’ businesses.

Building truly engaging and slick user interfaces requires client-side Javascript. We use the best and most powerful tools such as React JS. Using Javascript and React results in the best mobile experience by building a single page application that doesn't require a slow page refresh.

React is flexible so we can integrate with an existing database or API. Our development team leverages the Flux pattern and Redux to manage data flow. In addition, the component architecture helps with code reusability and maintenance.

With a simpler codebase, you can host your code anywhere, including Amazon AWS, at a very low cost. We'll deploy your application and make sure it is built for scale and is cross-browser compatible.

Our Core Services

Why React.JS?

Built and used extensively by Facebook, React JS is a fast and flexible javascript library that enables us to efficiently build dynamic user experiences. It utilizes a component-based, uni-directional data-flow architecture that encourages code reusability and simplifies the implementation of complex interactions. As an application grows, this architecture helps developers reason about application logic, simplifying feature addition and product growth.

React can be integrated into existing web applications or used to create stand-alone “single page applications” that leverage other APIs.

React is known as being the “view” layer of the application. So you can use React with any server-side development framework such as Ruby on Rails (Ruby), Django (Python), Larval (PHP), .NET, or SpringMVC (Java). You can even use it to plug directly into a content management system (CMS) like Wordpress or Drupal.

  • How we use React.JS at LaunchPad Lab

    LaunchPab Lab and React

    We typically pair React with a robust backend application like Ruby on Rails, which we use to build a scalable API. This API architecture allows us to support multiple clients such as web browsers, iOS or Android apps, even connected devices like scales or the buzzer to our building!

    Because we only use battle-tested, blue-chip technologies, our applications can be hosted using the best service providers, including Heroku and Amazon AWS, at a very low cost. We'll deploy your application and make sure it is built for scale, secure, and cross-browser compatible.

    Client Success Story


    Liquideed is an online private commercial real estate marketplace for off-market properties.

    On the Liquideed marketplace, sellers can receive confidential offers from commercial real estate's most qualified buyers without paying a commission.

    We built this Liquideed using React for a fast and great user experience on web and mobile devices. We also leveraged Ruby on Rails to build a scalable API.

    Teaching React

    We have partnered with General Assembly to teach React to junior developers in Chicago. Our classes focus on the practical uses for React. We teach the core fundamentals developers need to understand the React framework so they can start using React right away.
