Web Development is a very broad term. It implies everything from Web Design to backend development and anything in-between. Web site production involves the use of a variety of software packages and expert application of a number of Web Technologies. Below are the Software Tools and scripting languages that I use on a daily basis.
I have used Photoshop for over 16 years. Started with Photoshop, Version 4. This software has been my best friend for the last decade and a half. Went through Versions 4, 5, 7, 9, CS3, now working with Photoshop CS5.
Eclipse is an Open Source multi-language Integrated Development Environment (IDE), or in other words – a multi-language application-wide editor.
Professionally worked with HTML for 17 years. Went with the evolution of this Scripting Language from HTML2.0 to HTML5. I consider myself a very advanced HTML/CSS programmer.
Dreamweaver in a Coder Mode is my primary tool for editing hypertext. It is an excellent editor for web design professionals. I have used this tool for 14 years. Eclipse is used for serious web development, web applications and mobile apps.
PHP is the best, in my view, engine to create complex web applications and/or add functionality to existing sites. Most of my new sites are developed in PHP, although they are still a PHP/HTML mix. PHP allows you to interact with your visitors in ways HTML alone can’t.
I consider Adobe InDesign as the best tool within the realm of professional layouts design for print and digital publishing.
Its ability to create large, highly manageable print projects (like Magazines, books and brochures) is unsurpassed. Used InDesign for 4 years.
A bitmap and vector graphics editor, has certainly “grown up” through the years and became quite a powerful graphics package for professional web designers to rapidly create website vector and raster images, as well as prototypes and application interfaces. I use it for exactly the same purposes.
WordPress is a popular PHP/MySQL-based Content Management System, that is a fabulous platform allowing for flexibility, growth and expansion. More and more clients want to implement WordPress on their sites to take advantage of its extensible nature – various features from SEO, to slideshows, to full-blown ecommerce solutions, to name a few – are available for application to your web site through the use of WordPress Plugins. I have profound experience with CMS customization/development (WordPress, Joomla). I worked on many WP sites, providing deep customization (both PHP and CSS) of Themes, installed and configured Plugins, even tweaked the WP engine itself. Below are examples of sites, developed by me in WordPress.
