While all the terminology sounds confusing and could potentially be out of a Sci-Fi movie, their meanings and purpose for your website can be broken down into more digestible bites.
Who are Web Developers Really
First, let me explain who web developers really are and what we do for your website projects. Think of us as the framers of a new, custom-designed house. We are tasked with making your ideas for your website come to life and figuring out how technically we can make it act, respond and deliver the way you want it to. We decide, based on the actions you want your website to perform, which technologies your website needs, much like a custom home builder decides which materials are best suited to meet the design specifications. It is our job to ensure the website is strong and reliable enough to house the functions you outlined.
What Language Does Your Website Speak
At Aztek, all of our development is done in Microsoft’s .NET Framework, which has a very large development community and widespread technical support. This means a majority of the programming language used is C-Sharp (C#). This language allows us to write very maintainable and readable code that we can support for many years. With all the changes in technology, having the ability to support web code far into the future is a huge advantage.
While the coding language of developers may seem like Greek to you, know that when you work with a responsible development team like Aztek’s, you’re getting top-notch work that not only helps your site function the way your visitors expect it to, but one that generates more revenue. That’s a concept everyone can grasp.
