Frequently asked question
What is a website developer?
A web developer is a type of programmer that specialises in development for the web. Development can range from working on simple single page site such as the one we created for Nobbys Lighthouse – to larger multiple page sites with complex back ends similar to Newcastle Now. Web developers do not perform any design work – their role is to convert the designs provided to them by a web designer.
What is a CMS?
A content management system (CMS) is the application that supports how content is organised on your website. This is how content is updated, added and removed. There are a range of CMS options, including WordPress, Squarespace, Silverstripe, Craft CMS and others. We’ll help you choose the best CMS for your website and show you how it works.
What are the best practices of web development?
A thorough web developer works in close partnership with web designers and carefully considers the full user experience (UX) of a website. This takes into account the simple things that we take for granted when using a website. Do links and buttons animate when you hover? Is the website responsive in your browser? Will it work on a tablet or mobile site? Is your website friendly to those with vision impairments?
