Application Programming Services

Adding functionality to your web site


Server-side and client-side coding

Hewson Digital currently provide bespoke web application development using PHP . a widely used web server programming language. Javascript is also used, where desirable, to enhance the client-side of the application. These facilitate great flexibility in providing a host of features that are not found in simple static HTML websites.

In order to provide the widest range of options, JAVA is also being introduced to take advantage of it's threaded architecture, portability and widespread use across a range of devices.

Web Standards

Web pages are created in (X)HTML according to your requirements and styled with CSS. Although most work to date has been produced in XHTML, this is increasingly trending towards HTML5. The choice of coding for your site will depend on your target audience.

Database Access

SQL is used to provide database access for applications that are data-driven, often with the backing of a MySQL database as an open source solution. You can be assured of expert database design and administration.

An Open-Source Solution with widely used technologies

The advantage of these common technologies to you is that you are not tied to Hewson Digital to maintain or update your code in the future.
