PHP & MySQL Programming
Effective web site design today requires programming skills. The rapid evolvement of the web has raised the bar on web site design now more accurately termed web site development. We have extensive, in-depth experience with all versions of PHP on both Windows and Unix platforms.
Olympic Web Design is a family owned and operated full service web development company. With more than twenty years of design and development experience, we are able to offer you an effective, fully interactive site.
SQL Database Programming
The use of a database-enabled web site has become the norm. We have extensive experience in database design and development. Having worked with MS SQL Server, MySQL, mSQL, CA-Ingres, Informix and Sybase in past projects enables us to rapidly apply this experience to your project.
Contact us and you'll be shocked at how affordable a PHP/MySQL database enabled web site can be!
Content Management Systems - WordPress & Drupal
One of the most common content management systems (CMS) in use today is WordPress. WordPress started out as a tool used primarily to allow bloggers to easily post content. WordPress has since grown into a mature, easy to use CMS that allows the end client to maintain their own website, if they so choose. We have built a number of sites with WordPress and find it to be an effective tool for many clients.
Drupal like WordPress is an open source CMS. Drupal also has a large following and is often used with larger organizations or those that have a more complex review process for site changes. We have experience implementing and maintaing sites built with Drupal.
Server Side Scripting (PHP & ASP)
To some the title of server side scripting may not mean much. This is a term used to describe HTML web pages which include embedded scripting. The ability to embed server side scripting within a web page has enabled much more rapid development of database-enabled web sites. We commonly utilize PHP in the sites we develop. PHP allows us to architect your site in a way that allows for reusable components which translates into lower maintenance costs. For example, we design sites such that a change to a common component such as the site footer only needs to be made in one place rather than on each page.
At Olympic Web Design we have experience with the two most popular server side parsing languages, PHP and Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) including .NET. In fact, this very page you are viewing utilizes PHP.
We commonly use PHP along with a MySQL database to quickly and affordably build complex, interactive, database enabled web sites. Using open source technology has tremendous pricing advantages for YOU without sacrificing quality.
Common Gateway Interface (CGI) was one of the most common methods of developing and processing interactive forms through the 90's. We have CGI programming experience in Perl, C and COBOL enabling us to maintain your legacy CGI applications.
