About Us

Mission Statement

To make our client’s businesses better by providing no-nonsense business software products, services and consulting, whilst minimising environmental impact and maximising social good.

What We Can Do For You

We love computers. They can do some pretty cool things. We want to make them do awesome things. To make our lives easier. Because that’s what they’re for. That’s what we’re passionate about.

The Foo Project is a software development agency based in Hobart, Australia. We develop custom application software, off-the-shelf amazement, and open-source software with an emphasis on GIS and networking.

About The Name

The name ‘The Foo Project’ is a piece of programmer humour. The word ‘Foo’ is what is known as a metasyntactic variable, or a placeholder where many words could fit. It’s a reference to our versatility! We can do many different things, and we wanted a name that reflected that. We also think we’re really funny when really we’re not.
