About Pork Pie Software
“To create useful and educational engineering apps while having fun.”
We’re lucky enough to be based in the coolest capital city in the World… Wellington! The Silicon valley of New Zealand!
We’re passionate about writing quality engineering apps that solve real world engineering problems whilst giving the user the opportunity to understand the underlying theory behind the answer. Education is a key part of our mission and as such reference information together with worked examples are provided within each app so they can be accessed regardless of web or wifi connectivity.
Our Story So Far
From having an idea to enjoying a pork pie we have come a long way in a short time…
A discussion amongst engineers raises the idea that a lot of engineering calculations that are undertaken as part of our job could easily be turned into an app as opposed to a spreadsheet…
So it begins… Early October whilst eating a porkpie at lunch, and deciding it was more important to start writing apps than over thinking a company name…, we register our company as ‘Pork Pie Software’.
After finding that the .com domain was already owned we hastily purchased the .kiwi and .co.nz web domains together with creating a basic website on our .kiwi domain. Although we checked if the domain was in use, well typed ‘porkpiesoftware.com’ into a browser, we did not check if it was already registered…. It was… Enough money had been spent so we ran with the local .kiwi and .co.nz domains…
We finally launch our first app Transformer Pie. We are now an app development company!
We strike a deal and purchase the porkpie software.com domain.
Our apps have been downloaded by users in 35 different countries.
We Launch our 10th app, Motor Pie!
Our ‘porkpiesoftware.com’ website goes live!
Our apps have now been downloaded by users in 45 different countries! Sweden being country number 45!
