Web Site Development
Our core service is the development of highly functional, user empowering websites.
The most expensive resource used when developing a web site is time.
However, when developing any website from scratch the same basic, time-consuming configuration has to take place covering accessibility and security.
By using Joomla we save a huge amount of time by getting most basic functionality straight out of the box and also by having access to a huge worldwide network of tools and utilities.
It is very rare that a user requirement is not already available to some degree within a proven tool that can plug straight into Joomla.
We save a huge amount of time by using this framework.
This allows our quotes to be much more affordable that they otherwise would be.
Our development effort is focused on your unique requirements giving opportunities for cost saving and for going for a higher spec solution within your existing budget.
We enjoy working with Actors.
While most tend not to have any interest in technology they are keenly aware of the promotional necessity of a professional and effective online presence.
The particular joy of working with Actors is that they usually have a wealth of content & media to work with. In fact, the job is often more curation than creation.
We will always advise and guide the selection and creation of content with the Client having the final say of course.
One particularly satisfying project was The Official Jack Wild Website. It was an honor to be able to work with Claire Harding, Jack's widow, to get the site out in conjunction with his autobiography.
We have been brought in to rescue a number of projects that have found themselves in difficulty.
Our knowledge of the various web technologies is both broad and deep.
Consequentlly, we have proven very effective in taking on partially completed projects; getting up to speed on the technologies used and then executing a plan to get the project to completion.
Web application Development
RoR is an incredibly powerful web framework which facilitates the development of top flight web-based applications.
For example, it was used to implement the initial versions of Twitter.
lockhartarts is currently developing a fully functional web application aimed at helping the newly fledged freelancer manage the lifecycle of their business from marketing to job management to invoicing to accounts.
The prospects for this project are VERY exciting.
