Who, What, Where, When and How

Experience

I have been developing and maintaining web sites and online applications, covering all aspects such as analysis, design, programming and post maintenence since 2000.
For the last 8 years I have been working freelance in several different ongoing and one-off projects, balancing my time between children and work.

What's in a web?

Over the last few years web sites have come a long way from the initial static html pages.  Modern web sites are dynamic, using databases and administration panels (CMS), to allow the contents to change quickly in accordance to the clients needs.

Each clients needs are specific so I work with my customers to create tailor made web sites and applications that exactly fit their needs.
By means of a simple control panel, the client can manage the website contents at any time without having to contact me for every minor change.
For example, news items can be added or photos can be uploaded according to the specifications of each case.

Technology

To achieve this and so as to create a comfortable user experience I use technologies such as:
PHP, MYSQL, html, css, AJAX, javascript and, if needed use the latest javascript libraries such as Mootools or Jquery.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Asides from creating accessible websites, I also optzimie the webs as much as possible for the search engines such as Google and Yahoo.

Despite common belief this is not something that can be "done later", rather it is best to be planned and programmed into the code as the site is developed.
