I believe the most important part of building a Website is getting my customer’s business philosophy into words so their customer’s can see what and how he/she provides his/her product. Every site I build is a new starting point for that customer. It’s a jumping-off point into online sales and advertising.
I’ve been building mostly Institutional sites (primarily higher education sites) for the last 15 to 18 years. I built my first page in 1997 using Microsoft Word saving the page as HTML; I then viewed the source to determine how what I had typed became visible on a Website. I was fascinated by the code, and hooked for life.
