Our History

2004
2005-2009

SkaDate

SkaDate is the first and the biggest Skalfa’s effort. Our flagship commercial product quickly wins market share and customers’ hearts.

Custom SkaDate projects

We develop a lot of SkaDate-based custom projects for customers. Online dating industry experiences a boom, and we help entrepreneurs to take advantage of the new phenomenon.

Skalfa team

During the period of several years, Skalfa grows from 6 students/graduates into a team of 25 permanent professionals. We found this to be our sweet spot in size which is maintained for years to come.
2010

Mobile apps

We release our first mobile apps and start successfully developing custom mobile projects for customers.
2011

Oxwall

Oxwall, a free open source social platform is launched after 2 years of development. Instantly makes a splash in the social networking platform space.

Custom Oxwall projects

Custom Oxwall development is in big demand. The flexibility of this open-source platform allows Oxwall to be used for a variety of projects, far beyond the original scope.
2012

Wall.fm

Skalfa releases Wall.fm — a SaaS solution for Oxwall. This project operates for several years.

We get to know high-load systems and it helps us develop scaling approaches that we successfully use for the most demanding of our customer projects.

Critic's Choice CMS Awards

Oxwall is named People’s Choice in the Critic’s Choice CMS Awards as The Best Social Networking Solution.
2013-2017

Prague, Czech Republic

Our presence in Europe is established.

More platforms supported

Due to popular demand, we start developing projects based on various open source frameworks, not only Oxwall and SkaDate. The Agile methodology is now at the heart of everything we do. Automated testing and continuous integration become necessary parts of our process.

Demand in Skalfa’s expertise and services explodes.

Service-oriented Skalfa

As the scale and importance of customer projects grow, we transition to the project manager model. Instead of the traditional “conveyor” support flow, customers are assigned their own project managers, who always stay on top of their projects and lead them within our company from start to finish.
