I love the people that hire you to design their website, but they really don’t want you to design it. They want to trick you into doing the layout then they want to play DESIGN STAR. The look to you like Vern Yip and want you to re-enforce their design ideas.
What do you think? Looks great you changed around my entire design. Do you want me to explain why using the lady with half her face cut off is a good ide and the other lady with her legs chopped off is great design decision?
When you find a company that advertises $12 hour rate for experienced programming are you really saving?
I doubt it. Chances are you are getting an unqualified programmer and it will take 5 times or more longer to do what an experienced programmer in the USA can do. You have no guarantee and you will never be able to find that programmer again. Please do business in the USA and make sure the web development company you work with guarantees they will not outsource and will back any work they do. Make sign an agreement liable for 100k if they outsource your project. You will find most programmers are not experienced to develop you project.
Give me 50k I will build you an airplane. Will it fly? I hope so but I wont be the one riding in it.
OUTSOURCING RUINS OUR ECONOMY AND GIVE REPUTABLE USA COMPANIES A BAD NAME.
It you like outsourcing so much sell your product where you build it. You'll find they don't want that garbage they sold to you.
New York City has had some of the worst website designs but lately they have been revamping and redoing a lot of the government websites. Good designs and up to industry standards.
dzine it is a certified NY City state and government vendor.
We received a call Feb 11, 2009 by a person names Donna G from a skin care product company. Their website uses a questionable (SCARY) way of storing customer credit card information.
They called us and sent us documentation to resolve their CC processing dilemma. We looked over their files free of charge and promptly responded back to them letting them know that they would require a programmer that specialized in Cold Fusion. While our developers are well rounded in all languages we specialize in PHP. I emailed Donna back the very next day to let her know we would not be able to help her.
"Pete: Attached please find the info file specs. You already know our site is www.lookreborne.com . As we discussed the order info that is placed on my web site needs to be transferred to my fulfillment center daily. They charge out the credit card.
Please let me know what you think as soon as possible. Thanks for your time. Please use 212.203.0990.
We are going to look it over and get back to you with a quote.
We will not be able to do this. You are going to need a programmer experienced in COLD FUSION.
RESPONSE FROM DONNA AT www.lookreborne.com
no one from my company ever spoke with you nor did i ever!!!! anyone could have made this up as you did.why would i need cold fusion when i am linux php???????????? go screw yourself!!!
Unprofessional and burned by their past programmer. Maybe from another country??? who knows
Look for experienced developers and sometimes paying more gets quality results. Since when did giving a free consultation and a honest answer get a response to go screw yourself?
Do My Back is a fantastic idea created by Kate Slavin. The device allows you to apply lotions and creams to places you cant reach.
Way to go kate.
