Welcome,

I Design And Build Websites

I enjoy implementing websites based on ideas visualized by clients and myself.

What Have I Made?

My Workflow

I organize my sprints with an agile management approach. I always prepare the design and layout before implementing any website.

The first phase of the project is when I talk to my client or product manager about the vision of the layout. There will be project management tools used such as Trello or Jira to track every sprint and get every story completed.

Once I have the clients/ project manager's clear design layout in mind, the second phase would be to implement a proper layout prototype for all pages (using axure) with the clients vision in mind as well as fulfilling best practices for increasing SEO rank and ADA compliance.

The third phase would be focusing on the development side, and would focus on fulfilling all WCAG for ADA compliance. Choosing a different theme, shrinking images, or selecting specific plugins that can increase SEO rank will be researched then implemented on this phase. Also adding the page meta-descriptions for SEO, make sure there's aria-labels for hyperlinks or buttons, and also include the alt tags for any images. Will make any final layout or design changes.

After everything is developed, I will do a final check and test everything while still on the staging/ testing environment domain. I will make sure every plugin is acting accordingly on every browser, then I will migrate website from testing domain into the current or live domain to make the website live.

Software That I Use

These are programs, virtual boxes, rules for WCAG/ ADA compliance, project management tools, and operating systems that I have experience on.
