8th Light Los Angeles | Custom Software & Web Development

8th Light is leading the charge for software craftsmanship in Los Angeles.

Since opening the office in 2014, our team has spread the principles and practices of software craftsmanship by diving head-first into the local software community. We attend, present at, and organize MeetUp groups as often as possible, and are eager to work on open source projects with other passionate developers in the area.

Our team is small, but has grown by hiring local developers. All of our software crafters are hired through our modern apprenticeship program, which provides a period of intensive learning and practice that prepares us for the demands of delivering high quality code.

We work closely with our clients to help discover and solve difficult problems in a wide range of technologies.
