The New Guy

Joining the PeaceWorks team is a unique experience. I’ve only been here a few weeks and I can already feel it.

Quoting a Website

At PeaceWorks, our Development Services team works on implementing websites and web-based applications for our clients.  Some projects are small and are completed within weeks.  Other are large and take several months from start to finish.  For the most part our projects run smoothly, but, of course, there are also some challenging ones.
