A nicely designed custom blog for the Dutch writer and publisher JanJaap van Hoeckel, featuring a custom CMS which includes an email alert system.

Actually this is a prima example of the relationship we aim to build with our clients. We have been working with this client for many years already, and have also been doing the hosting and maintenance of the blog. And of course, we are always available to answer any questions our client might have.

We implemented the following techniques for this project:

  • Django: Django is an advanced web application framework, written in Python. Django incorporates a great number of features, enabling developers to develop websites and web applications very quickly and efficiently. We save our clients time and money by getting up to speed quickly using Django.
  • CMS: A Content Management System (or CMS) is the part of a website that enables content managers to edit their sites' content. On of the many marvellous features of Django is that a basic CMS is part of every project. We can then easliy and quickly customise the basic CMS for our clients' needs.
  • jQuery: jQuery is one javascript libraries that started the Web2.0 revolution around 2005, and to date, one of the most popular. We wouldn't know what to do without it (we would then probably need to write it). jQuery enables consistent cross-browser user experience with far less effort and expense, including AJAX support.
  • HTML 5: HTML 5 has great promise in enabling rich web application interfaces to be just as intuitive and flexible as desktop interfaces, even across all the differences there are in the different browsers on the market. Ideally, developers should be able to implement video, audio and animation in a single simple syntax, without having to hack their code to make do for browser compatibily.
  • Git: Git is our preferred way of managing software projects. It enables us to work on our clients' projects as a team, which is of course essential for larger projects or when speed is an absolute requirement.
  • Python: Python is our programming language of choice. What makes Python hugely different from languages like Java, C++, and .NET, is that it is much more flexible and concise, allowing programmers to get much more work done on our clients' projects. On top of that, we use the Django Framework, which delivers our clients even more development speed.
