Planning Phase: Sitemap and Wireframe Creation

Content Writing and Assembly
At this step, it is necessary to put in writing the very essence you’d like to communicate to the audience of your website and add calls-to-action. Content writing also involves the creation of catching headlines, text editing, writing new text, compiling the existing text, etc. that takes time and effort.
At this step, we finally start creating the website development. Usually, the home page is created first, and then all sub-pages are added, according to the website hierarchy that was previously created in the form of a sitemap. Frameworks and CMS should be implemented to make sure that the server can handle the installation and set-up smoothly. Then, special features and interactivity should be added according to the requirement.
Testing, Review, and Launch
Testing is probably the most routine part of a process. Every single link should be tested to make sure that there is nothing. We Tcheck every form, every script, run a spell-checking software to find possible typos. Use code validators to check if your code follows the current web standards.

The other important thing is keeping the client website up to date for preventing sites from bugs and decrease security risks.Which framework, programming or scripting languages do you prefer for web development?

With technological advancements there are many hurdles rooted “people issues” that money alone can’t fix.

We also try to change the current workflow of our employees.
Although technological advancement is not easily acceptable, we try to solve this by establishing interconnections and rebalancing between technology and resources. Understanding these connections will turn to reveal new paths to success so that technology can be more easily adopted, and employees are more content.
