website design & website development

This is a little background about web design " Web design is a process of conceptualization, planning, modeling, and execution of electronic media content delivery via Internet in the form of technologies (such as markup languages) suitable for interpretation and display by a web browser or other web-based graphical user interfaces (GUIs).

The intent of web design is to create a web site (a collection of electronic files residing on one or more web servers) that presents content (including interactive features or interfaces) to the end user in the form of web pages once requested. Such elements as text, forms, and bit-mapped images (GIFs, JPEGs, PNGs) can be placed on the page using HTML, XHTML, or XML tags. Displaying more complex media (vector graphics, animations, videos, sounds) usually requires plug-ins such as Flash, QuickTime, Java run-time environment, etc. Plug-ins are also embedded into web pages by using HTML or XHTML tags."

This is a little background about web development " Web development is a broad term for any activity related to developing a web site for the World Wide Web or an intra-net. This can include e-commerce business development, web design, web content development, client-side/server-side scripting, and web server configuration. However, among web professionals, "web development" usually refers only to the non-design aspects of building web sites, e.g. writing markup and coding. Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic businesses, or social network services.

For larger businesses and organizations, web development teams can consist of hundreds of people (web developers). Smaller organizations may only require a single permanent or contracting web master, or secondary assignment to related job positions such as a graphic designer and/or Information systems technician. Web development may be a collaborative effort between departments rather than the domain of a designated department.

joomla website migrations

joomla is constantly being updated and improved, from joomla 1.0 to the latest joomla 2.5 there have been many changes for the better. If you or your business has an older joomla site, and you want to migrate your site to the latest version there are many ways this can be accomplished, there are components that can be used to do this but only for standard joomla sites, if you have a custom site this makes the migration a little bit more tricky as the newer joomla version may not support the older components, plugins and extensions. We find that it is a much better practice to completely re-create a site using the newest version of joomla and then replace your old site, this ensures that the site will run smoothly, we will find the latest updates of your existing components, plugins and extensions and if necessary we will find the best replacements if they are not supported by a newer version of joomla.

It is always a good time to upgrade a joomla site as older versions will stop being supported by developers because they will be focused on creating new software for the newer versions, keeping your joomla site up to date will ensure your site will look good, run smooth and will not be compromised by any online threats.
