We develop web sites. We are not graphic designers. We work with our favorite graphic designer, Julia Waks, if you want a turn-key job or we can work with your graphic designer. We translate the graphic design into pure, efficient, light-weight, HTML/CSS and add any programming functionality on the server side. Increasing this mix is increasingly including advanced client side functionality such as AJAX and COMET techniques and server side CMS technologies such as Drupal and Ruby on Rails.
We have extensive web page development and client side experience using the following standards and technologies:
We have alsways used liquid page layouts whenever we can. We converted our own sites and new customer sites to CSS based liquid layouts in 2003 - among the very first web sites to do so. We have used CSS pop-up/down menus - again since 2003. We maintain an extensive 'tech Info' section on our site as a community service and have published a number of articles describing our reasons and experiences in converting out own site to 'pure' CSS layouts.
You may wish to look at our policy notes on cross browser support and how much effort and dollars are wasted in futile efforts to achieve 100% compatibility.
We have developed in-house a unique approach to serving browser specific pages from our web server to reduce overheads (and user cost).
We have sever side experience with:
Notes: We write and maintain our own PHP and increasingly Ruby libraries which can significantly decrease pricing for standard features.
We have experience with the following database systems:
We run a mixed Windows Windows 2000, Linux and FreeBSD operation with BSD (FreeBSD and OpenBSD) being our strategic direction.
Like many other developers we are big PHP users but increasingly we see Ruby as our future direction.
There are a number of superb CMS systems now available such as Drupal and Ruby on Rails. We are more than happy to use these systems where the solution is right for the client.
If you are happy it's OK - but your browser is giving a less than optimal experience on our site. You could, at no charge, upgrade to a W3C STANDARDS COMPLIANT browser such as Firefox
