This is a website for my Business, FNBG Business Cost Consultants, and was what led me to my interest in web development.
As part of starting the business there are all sorts of things that you need to get set-up, and one of the most important, I felt, was a website.
My business site started its life as a Google Site which, as anyone who has used the service will know, has severe limitations. The frustrations grew as the site, although functional, was far from easy on the eye. In addition to this, at a time when mobile and tablet browser use were on the rise, the site was a calamity.
I started to learn HTML and CSS and proceeded to create my first static site.
Over the last couple of years I have implemented Twitter Bootstrap, some PHP includes for ease of management / maintenance, as well as a little AJAX for requesting additional content while keeping the initial page size low and requesting content from my (shamefully out-of-date) Blogger Site.
