Developing for the web since 1997 with a variety of technologies over the years. Current services include:
- CMS [both front and back end development]:
- MySQL, PostGres
- Git & git-flow
- Ecommerce [eg, Ubercart, Drupal Commerce]
- Payment gateways [eg Worldpay, Paypal, Stripe]
- Campaign Monitor Integration
- Google Analytics Integration
- Site Design
- Site maintenance
- Hosting Set up
- Information Gathering
Before any build starts, it is important to make sure everyone knows what the expected end result is.
If you do not already have site design, designs will be created based on the data from the information gathering phase.
We have a specification, we have designs. Now the build process can begin! The initial development is carried out on a local development until is it in reliable state ready to be reviewed.
Local development complete, it is deployed to a staging site environment ready for testing and approval. This is not normally a publicly available environment, mainly to prevent search engines picking up the test site and diluting your search engine ranking.
- Bug fixes
Hopefully, there should not be any! But we spend time testing staging to make sure that the site does what it is meant to do before any of your customers see it.
It is all working as expected, so its time to go....
Its all good to go live!
- Maintenance / Further Development
If you take on a maintenance contract, then the site will have security updates applied shortly after they are made public.
Further development can be carried out as required, following the steps above.
