Code 8


Our team is based in Prague in the Czech Republic and consists of both back and front-end specialists.

Who are we?

Code 8’s level of service and expertise has always been second to none. For 5 years they’ve consistently proved they can handle any size and scope of project we may give them which makes them an obvious choice and a valuable resource for us.

John Murray, Charm

Code 8 was established in 2012, we are currently made up of seven full time developers with a further four as part of our extended network.

The founders started their careers back in the age of Internet Explorer 4 and have seen the world of the web transition through most of it’s major iterations, so we understand what browser support means.

Back in the early 2000’s we had some fun building fancy Adobe Flash sites, but welcomed the rise of web accessibility that followed and returned to our HTML roots. We were experimenting with AJAX (via hidden iframes), Progressive Enhancements and Responsive Design before these became widely adopted. This is not to boast, this is to reflect our passion for the work we do, and making sure we have the right tool kit with which to solve the problems we need to deliver on.

In March 2000 Robert joined the team to open a new dimension to what kind of service Code 8 could provide. A multiskilled product design person is something we've been eying since early days and clearly, good things come to those who wait.

Having previously worked both client-side and in agency environments in the UK we understand how different teams like to operate and how this has evolved over the years. We understand that communication is key to effective team work and endeavour to keep comms high through the lifecycle of all projects.

Lukas Vacovsky

Head of Front End

Has spent 7 years working for various agencies in London. He gets a bit particular about code quality, open internet and places to eat pizza. But he also believes that for every problem there is a solution and he won’t rest until he’s satisfied it’s been solved properly.

Code 8 was born

When Lukas returned to his homeland in late 2011, the work followed him back and he reconnected with Burt to start delivering a wider range of services to his clients. With such complementary skill sets the relationship bloomed and the clients kept coming back in bigger numbers. Boosted by skill shortage in the UK that made getting reliable and quality dev partners difficult, the team soon needed to expand into the team they are today.


We have some great partners that can provide Hosting, Web Design, UX and branding.
