The Development Process Consists Of

Technical Specification

This document is based on the Statement of Work and Wireframes. This document will state the technical requirements of the website, explaining how elements are implemented technically. This document is used for internal purposes and is completed by a web developer.

Front End Development

The ‘Front End’ is what the user sees once they reach a website. This stage is where the flat design is written into html code that is rendered in a browser. 24 build all sites on a staging site (on our internal servers) that will be shared at the time of revision and review.

Back End Development

The ‘Back End’ is what the admin sees when they login to the WordPress CMS. This stage is where the Front End is connected with the Back End, so content can be entered into an easy-to-use interface (CMS – WordPress), saved and then viewed by the user on the website. Development is the most time intensive stage in the lifecycle.

Browser Testing

We use a thorough testing process that tests for errors in design and code across a range of browsers and devices. We utilise both in browser testing through developer tools and physical device testing.

Responsive Design

Responsive Design is when the visual look of a website responds (or changes) based on the browser size of the user. We see most impact in mobile and tablet viewing, where the browser size is smaller than a traditional desktop. An example of responsive design is Mizuno.

SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)  

SEO consists of three major parts a) your actual site structure, b) site content and c) ongoing link building. In the first phase of work, 24 will use best practise coding to optimise the site structure (a). From a technical and structural perspective, the website will be setup according to best practice standards.

The most important thing in any SEO strategy is content which is the responsibility of Spalding. Ongoing SEO Strategy is not included in this proposal.

The YOAST plugin will be implemented to assist our clients admins with specifying specific page titles and descriptions for search engine result pages.
