Tomahawk Technologies Inc.

Welcome to the Tomahawk Lab, please note that the Lab may or may not represent work currently underway. 

We’ve found that we have so many great ideas that we need a place to record them.  The early development of the SteelArrow programming language started this way.  This middle-ware language became the base or launching point for Tomahawk.  We have many clients that rely on SteelArrow daily to accept payments or to link and draw information from a remote data source.

Sharing is the way of the new business model and our love for technology continually inspires us to be a part of that.  Sometimes the simplest challenges can be the most fulfilling solutions and especially when they form the basis for something larger.  We knew this early on when SteelArrow was released as an open source project on SourceForge.  The language never really took off (though we still think it is the best one out there!) but its humble beginnings were the start of something big, and from those early days a viable business grew.

The Tomahawk Lab was envisioned as a mind-share to help foster a steady flow of ideas among our own staff or even site visitors.

Have an idea for a new project?  We’d love to be a part of it; there are no bad ideas only great opportunities!
