Hello! I’m Cameron. I’ve Been Building Websites over 6 Years
Over the year, I’ve met some great people, who we form a group with common interest in Website Design & Development.
How I started
I started pure technical, the nuts and bolts of internet infrastructure – from configuration of router to building Linux server for hosting, it was challenging yet stimulating, nowadays we refer to these as clouds
This infrastructure enable internet to grow, whether it’s a simple email, chat to VoIP for betterment in communication, or building website to inform, promote and sell for individual or businesses, opportunity are boundless
How did I get into Web design?
From playing around and experimenting LAMP hosting, I got the opportunity to fix HTML issues for many of my client, then on to maintain their website, which include backup, migrate to Add/Move/Change of content and images
Thus get me exposure onto many higher level of apps, such as WordPress, OsCommerce, ZenCart,….. abilities to install, apply, config templates for functionalities or simply make the site look CLASSY AND AESTHETIC
Design vs Development
Think of an Architect who has to grant a vision of a monument, but that may take 100’s of engineer and craftsman over 100’s of year to make it happen.
Superficial to Deep
Looks vs Substance, Loud vs Subtle, In your face images vs Thousand word essay
These are quality that actually can co-exists in the wonderful world of WWW.
Now you got a Hot/Sexy yet Elegant/Subtle Website Design! What NEXT?
Many web-designer are extremely gifted in the LOOKs aspect, but often fail the “WHAT NEXT!”
The Concept of “Front-end” & “Back-end”
This is where the Design, the LOOKs, the many content be as TXT, Images, Video or Sound
The page layout, ……
This is where “WHAT NEXT!”
Remember those 100’s of engineer and craftsman over 100’s years to make it happen!
The “Back-end” is a collection of machine/apps/software,… working away 24 x 7 execute the commands and re-adjust itself, applying it’s many AI for the pupose of,…
Now this is pure science – it bring in the bacon $$$. It deals with payment gateway, database, inventory, taxes, SEO, antispam, SSL…… these are technologies with a constant evolution in parameters, algorithm that deal with from security to search engine optimisation,… that provide the possibilities to pull visitor in, sell or allow subscription or booking your product and get PAID
In my view, the “Back-end” is the ever evolving dragon – needs to be respected and tame
