A website is more than just text and images displayed on a screen, it has a purpose and performs some function.  Web development is the process of adding those functions.  Many people don’t know what a website is capable of doing for their business, and a good web developer can help you get the most out of your website and increase your productivity.

A good web developer will communicate with you without trying to talk over your head or use technical terms that only other developers would know.  We understand the importance of good communication skills and do our best to make sure that our clients know what their options are

Functionality is a crucial part of any website and special care should be taken in the web development cycle to create a solid foundation.  The structure of the website code plays a key role in search engine optimization, and adhering to industry standards can help to ensure that your site displays properly on all web browsers.

Client-side scripting languages like javascript can make your site more engaging by adding social media integration with sites like Facebook, slideshows to draw in your audience, or interactive polls.  Javascript can make your site more interesting by making your content come to life on the screen.

Server-side scripting languages like PHP or ASP can add functionality that javascript can’t.  The security offered by these languages can add features like custom content management, the ability to add user accounts, email lists and ecommerce.

AJAX is a technology that merges client-side and server-side scripting.  AJAX gives your site the ability to work behind the scenes updating a database or adding new content to a page.  This makes the user experience of your site more enjoyable by cutting down page load times.  Without AJAX, if a user clicks on a link or submits a form that requests some sort of response from the server, the user would be sent to a new page that displays the requested information.  With AJAX, however, the request can happen behind the scenes and the new information can be added to the page the user is currently on.
