Having an online presence is essential in this day and age. People are becoming more and more reliant on computers to fill their needs. Even more so than computers, smartphones are taking the world by storm and mobile applications are becoming increasingly popular. Lucky for you, creating your web or mobile application is something we specialize in!
We use modern day technologies in order to create your web and mobile applications. Some of major the technologies we use are:
Server Side Coding
The server is responsible for serving pages. Any code written for the server is not displayed to the user but rather is used by the developer to tell the website what to do. Server side coding allows users to have a personalized experience when visiting a website by providing dynamic content, enabling notifications, or sending emails. Programming for the server involves writing code that runs on a server in a programming language supported by a server. Picking a programming language to use depends on what you need done, but based on our experience we can pick and use the best suited language for your project!
Client Side Coding
Also called the front-end of web and mobile development, client side development involves requesting pages from the server and displaying them to the user. Each page is designed with a markup language like HTML and CSS which include lots of features to make every page unique. Client side coding is all visual and involves the strategic placement of text and images as well as rules to change the font type or background color for example. Websites or mobile applications can be as simple as a page that loads with basic information or as complex as a homepage with fancy mouse-over images that expand with descriptions while hovering over them. Based on the mock-ups we design with your specifications, we can make your web or mobile application look exactly like you envisioned it.
There are easy ways to store your data and there are more complicated ways to store your data. Either way, your data will most certainly be stored in a database. A database is defined as an organized collection of structured information or data typically stored electronically in a computer system. Using a database is beneficial because it not only keeps data organized, but also keeps it safe in a centralized location for authorized users to manipulate. Information stored in a database can be easily retrieved, deleted, updated, and modified. At Smart Software Solutions, we have enough experience with different database programs and can most certainly choose the best one for your specific project.
A framework is a platform that provides out-of-the-box functionality for common tasks required to build a software application. Frameworks typically include support programs, compilers, code libraries, toolsets, and API’s that can be collectively used to speed up the development process of any project. We have experience with many frameworks and can give you suggestions that will make your website stand out. For example, one popular framework that we use to develop applications is Apache Cordova for its ability to target both web and mobile applications as well as provide extra functionality though well-written plugins. Using frameworks minimizes our time coding so we don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
While developing any website for our clients we make sure to use responsive design. Specific to web development, responsive design is a coding practice which ensures that an application responds to the user's behavior and environment based on their screen size, platform, and orientation. This means that as developers we use up-to-date technology to mix flexible grids, layouts, images, and media queries to make your website dynamic and unique.
Platform Store Publication
For mobile applications, different platform stores have different requirements on how apps must be published on there. Application publishing is a fundamental component in the successful release of an application because not only do you have to worry about publishing the actual application, but also the store listing which includes product details, graphic assets, languages, and application categorization. We have the ability to handle end-to-end development which means after thoroughly testing your mobile application, we can publish it to the platform store based on your specifications.
