Need more than just a website?

When standard websites will not provide the solution that you need for your brand

or business, you can look at having additional content added to create a more custom

user experience.


With website development we can add customised features like facebook widgets, twitter Feeds,
sliders, registration pages, online shopping, parcel tracking, and much more.

Adding Custom Features

When we are asked by a client to add customised features to their website, the approach
is similar to that of website design. To identify the most relevant features that will provide
what the client is looking for in their user experience:

  1. What service is being provided
  2. How it should be presented to the consumer
  3. What languages are best suited to create the features
  4. What are the purpose of the features

Choosing the best programming technique

There are quite a few different programming languages available for developers to create
customised features for a website nowadays, choosing the best one is a difficult task.

These are the 3 main languages that we use at Studio7:

1. PHP (Personal Home Page)

PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source
general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development
and can be embedded into HTML.

What distinguishes PHP from something like client-side JavaScript is that the code is
executed on the server, generating HTML which is then sent to the client. The client would
receive the results of running that script, but would not know what the underlying code
was. You can even configure your web server to process all your HTML files with PHP, and
then there's really no way that users can tell what you have up your sleeve.


2. ASP.Net

ASP.NET is an open-source server-side web application framework designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages. It was developed by Microsoft to allow programmers to build dynamic web sites, web applications and web services.

ASP.NET Web pages, known officially as Web Forms, are the main building blocks for
application development in ASP.NET. There are two basic methodologies for Web Forms,
a web application format and a web site format. Web applications need to be compiled
before deployment, while web sites structures allows the user to copy the files directly to
the server without prior compilation.


3. JQuery

Query is a lightweight, "write less, do more", JavaScript library.

The purpose of jQuery is to make it much easier to use JavaScript on your website.

jQuery takes a lot of common tasks that require many lines of JavaScript code to
accomplish, and wraps them into methods that you can call with a single line of code.

jQuery also simplifies a lot of the complicated things from JavaScript, like AJAX calls
and DOM (Document Object Model - The Webpage Layout) manipulation.



Choosing the best suited programming language depends on what you want to achieve
with your website needs and what the features are going to give the user access to.

ASP.Net is a fully compiled language that takes alot of time and effort to create, if you have
a large budget and want to have a personalised website rich in features for the user experience
then ASP.Net is something to consider.

If you have a large or small budget but have a small timeframe to get your website developed
then you should consider looking into PHP and JQuery to complete your needs. PHP is alot
more robust and you can work on scripting while your website is live on the hosting server,
which enables ironing out bugs without having to compile and re-upload, re-test and then
repeat until the website is running correctly.
