Coding is what gives life to a static design. Using technologies such as HTML, CSS, Java Script, and jQuery front end web developers create interfaces that are interactive thus allowing for actions to be performed. On the other side are backend web developers who work on the server side creating systems, applications and databases using technologies such as PHP, .NET, and SQL.
At Websites ‘N’ More, a leading web development company in Sydney, we have a dedicated team of front-end and back-end web developers who can help you bring your ideas to life online. We have worked on a vast number of web development projects that include anything from simple informational websites or eCommerce stores to custom built web applications.
Some of the key elements we focus on during a web development project
The foundation of any good system is the way its code is written. We focus on writing code that is easily readable and maintainable by others. Using modules while building different functions of a system, creating documentation and testing at various stages during the development phase ensure that the standards of coding are maintained during all our projects. Following this methodology results in systems that are easily understandable and thus easily maintainable.
The concept of usability is apt not only for the front end but also the back end. The administrator of a system needs to perform system related tasks day in and day out, keeping this in mind we strive to create a backend that is easily usable and allows the administrator to perform actions seamlessly.
Performance & Scalability
While choosing an open-source platform as the backend or while creating a custom CMS, scalability is one of the most important factors that we like to consider. The web development team at Websites ‘N’ More tries to understand the client’s current needs as well as future needs before offering a solution. Scalability can mean adding new functionality, the ability to handle more users or transactions, all without affecting the performance of the system.
The backend should allow for easy integration with other softwares or technologies that a business uses. This could mean integrating the businesses inventory software or order tracking system to better control the overall operations. Working with ready solutions or writing custom codes in order to make systems talk to each other is something our web development team specialises in.
Building systems that are stable and secure is of paramount importance to our web development team. We focus on protecting systems against Injection attacks, Distributed Denial of Service attacks, Brute Force attacks and Cross Scripting attacks.
Some of the steps we take to minimise the risk of security threats to web systems include using secure and reliable content management systems & hosting services, hardening CMS installations, regularly updating the various softwares and components of the CMS and the server and running regular security scans on the system to identify vulnerabilities to undertake corrective action.
Modular and Customisable
Our web development team focuses on creating modular systems from an architectural point of view because we understand that systems change overtime and having a modular system means working on changes is easier
