Your idea could be even better than Facebook or Google. But, if you can't translate your concept into a fully functioning web site it's bound to fail!
You've found help. Someone who:
Using this experience you will get help documenting your idea.
Sometimes, envisioning how your concept will be put into action on a web site can be overwhelming. But, you'll get guidance from an experienced developer who has taught many users how to write simple stories that serve as the basis for creating written specs.
Once your concept is detailed in stories, it is time to begin developing it. But, there are so many languages available for creating a web site: JAVA, PHP, ASP, Perl, Python, Cold Fusion, and many more. What language will be used to build your site?
The tools used to build your site include:
Your site will be tested end to end during development using Test Driven Development.
You may not familiar with the concept. But, basically, the idea behind Test Driven Development is that the developer writes a failing test first, before they write any code. Then they write code that makes that test pass. These steps are followed by writing another failing test, making that one pass, and so on.
How many times have you gone to a site and something didn't work? Did you go back again after experiencing that frustration? Probably not. This is the biggest reason to test -- so you can be certain that nothing is broken. You don't want your great idea short circuited by a web site that doesn't function as planned.
But, more importantly, web sites are becoming more and more dynamic. New features become essential. Yet, at the same time, they add new complexity to your site. With every change you make comes a greater chance something that previously worked will now fail.
That is what's great about Test Driven Development. Before starting any changes, the test suite for your site can be re-run to make sure everything works. Then as new tests are added, and new code written to make them pass, the developer can make sure that all the old tests still pass with new changes that were made.
So, by using Test Driven Development you can have confidence your site will function properly -- not just when it is first launched, but also after each and every new enhancement is deployed!
Here is where the rubber meets the road! You may solve a desperate need with the most attractive, functional web site. But, it will all go to waste if no one sees it. You need it displayed where your prospects are looking.
Most developers consider their job complete when they have the site functioning per the specifications. It's your job to optimize it for the search engines or hire someone to do it for you.
But, you've found someone who:
So, you won't need to spend additional funds hiring a separate SEO consultant to get your site listed on the search engines.
