Coding Philosophy

Web development in its most simplistic form is an effective use of the various design software and code languages available today to produce a fully functional, yet visually appealing website that accomplishes a task for or provides information to the user. Code that is clear, concise, formatted, self-explanatory and refactored to eliminate redundancy is considered by the industry as the convention to follow.  The programs I develop will always have adequate internal documentation so that anybody including myself can pick off where I left.  When developing an app or a website for a client, a lot of factors are considered beyond the code itself.  As a developer, I must evaluate whether a design idea is feasible from a technological perspective, prioritizing on satisfying functional requirements. My work must also take into account conflicting demands between technological feasibility, user experience, and business objectives. That being said, I will always have the client’s core vision and objectives in mind; ultimately creating not just another app or website, but an experience that brings back end users.
