Web Development With A Los Angeles Flair
Web development is a general term, but it basically means just what it implies - the development of the web. Think of the internet as a vast expanse of real estate broken up into individual properties. While the property itself has little value (there is, after all, plenty of space to go around) the value comes in the improvements you make to the parcel. Your own piece of the web.
Improving, or developing, your little corner of the web involves a number of components that must be implemented and maintained in order for your parcel to appreciate in value over time.
Clearing Out the Weeds
Once your website is established, much like a garden, it requires a skilled caretaker to be fruitful. Top performing websites are high maintenance and like to be coaxed and coddled. Either you can take that job on yourself, or you can take care of all of the other things in life that demand your attention and leave the dirty work to the professionals.
Developing a substantive web platform for your business is the base from which your design , marketing and strategy should emanate from . When your online systems are aligned with your goals then you ensure your project will be built on a solid foundation. Pinagency embraces these core principle with development .

Web Development needs to address these things for businesses:

A substantial amount of users see the web as largely visual. Over time it has become highly interactive with sites like Facebook and Youtube pushing the boundaries of what is "good design" and usability. However, there is an unseen beauty behind every website in its architecture. At Pin Agency, we treat our code like artwork by keeping it ornate while finding new and inventive ways to build websites.
Techies Love Change
Web technologies are constantly evolving and changing. We make sure we adapt to what's new while at the same time remembering our coding roots.
