Premium Web Application Development & Responsive Web Design Phoenix, Arizona

Does your web developer or website design company just do enough for you to get by... except when it comes to sending you the bill? If what they built for you were a plane, would they fly in it with you? As you are probably discovering, not all website creation businesses truly have your best interests at heart when it comes to code quality and exceeding expectations.

Many website agencies have suite space rent to pay and all related expenses.. utilities, etc. With those expenses, there is the temptation to up-sell and over-charge customers.

Not sure what you truly need? Cyber Oceans can help explain what may seem complicated, design strategies, architecture, web terminology...in the simplest, easy to understand terms and not use your uncertainty to up-sell you more than what you need.

About Us

Hello. I'm Bryant Sharp, Senior Web Developer and Owner of Cyber Oceans LLC. located in Phoenix, Arizona. I have been a professional web developer since 2001 (15 years) and specialize in Microsoft Web Technologies. Custom Web Application Development Web application design in Phoenix and website design services in general vary as much as do restaurants.

Static Websites

Static Websites, also known as a basic professional website , are most often maintained by a company's dedicated web developer or development team. Content is not persisted to any web database and is usually structured behind the scenes in a less complicated way.

Advantages of a responsive static website /a basic website:

  • Less expensive to create initial product.
  • Quick to create and often used for advertising time sensitive events, promotions, meeting short-term objectives.

Disadvantages of a static website/a basic website:

  • Website generating software often adds code bloat affecting W3C validation, hurting SEO, and page speed.
  • Person assigned to manage website usually requires some degree of technical expertise.
  • Technical expertise can be more expensive under auspice of salaries.
  • Best practices and other policy objectives such as Search Engine Optimization Marketing objectives are less likely to be implemented consistently.
  • Inconsistent implementation/enforcement of standards, SEO, and best practices can dilute the efficacy of the website.

Dynamic Websites

Dynamic Websites, also known as Custom Web Applications , are simply websites that have portions of their content stored in a database. Usually, an EndUser in an Administrative role, can sign in and manage the website to a certain degree. The Administrator, can for example add, edit, delete content, deactivate Users in less authoritative roles. The Administrator need not know how to write code and is often a staff member tasked with managing the website.

Advantages of a dynamic website/web application:

  • Content can be adjusted quickly.
  • Structure of web application can automatically implement business objectives consistently (e.g. SEO, Best Practices & Standards enforcement).
  • No need to place request to development team/developer.
  • Regular Staff need not learn how to write code.
  • A staff member managing the web application can do so at less expense that paying for a developer to make the changes/update requests.

Disadvantages of a dynamic website/web application:

  • Greater expense upfront to build due to complex business objectives.
  • Takes time for web application to see ROI.

Responsive Web Design

When I first heard the term " Responsive Design " I had the impression that the web site loaded fast and hadn't many internal database calls or web requests to external web services. Responsive Website Design is actually the term used to describe that a website can adjust its layout according to the viewing device's view port. In short, your site should render on a mobile device like it was designed for mobile devices, and render on a tablet as if it were designed specifically for a tablet. And so on...

It used to be the case, and still is at some companies, that your business might build a mobile app and have a developer or team for mobile development specifically. Now having to maintain two versions of your content, along with change control, updates etc..it is easy to see how burdensome and costly that might grow to be.

Cyber Oceans prefers to build your affordable website or web application so it will render nicely in any device. "One website-any web capable viewing device"... Where some web development companies will try to up-sell a mobile version solution AND a desktop version of your web project. There are no hustlers here, Cyber Oceans has you covered. Responsive Design now comes standard with your web project (where applicable).

Multi-Lingual

Multi-Lingual Websites , also known as Web Applications that implement Localization / Globalization, are web applications that can switch between languages via resource files and or text translations saved in a database. Web applications are usually built in the primary language target first, then the text strings are translated and saved to resource files and/or database tables and called/rendered according to the selected culture parameter.

Some browsers and various plugins can translate the single page in scope. Some website companies place 3rd party plugins that translate that specific page being viewed.

For RHRoofingLLC.com, Cyber Oceans created a content management web application [CMS] that could switch between English and Spanish. Additional details on this solution can be reviewed here: RHRoofingLLC.com

Database Design

When building anything of significance, a solid stable and strong foundation is required. The foundation of your web application is the database . We implement MS SQL best practices from the design process to security implementation. The common denominators of excellent database design are normalization, performance and security.

seo search engine optimization - not just search engine friendly

Normalization is the process of separating and organizing data in a database. The objective of normalization is to protect the data and to make the database and provide flexible by eliminating redundancy and inconsistent dependencies. When creating tables and establishing relationships between those tables the Developer greatly reduces redundant data that wastes disk space and creates maintenance problems. If data that exists in more than one place must be changed, the data must be changed in exactly the same way in all locations. A customer address change is much easier to implement if that data is stored only in the Customers table and nowhere else in the database.

Performance can be improved by applying indexes correctly and using tools such as SQL Profiler to investigate suspect stored procedures. Choosing the optimum data types for each column and following best practices when writing stored procedures, Cyber Oceans creates your database to the highest standards of quality.

Security for a database is generally assigned to the Database Administrator [DBA] of an organization. Objectives such as hardening the database, reducing the attack surface area and removing some default users/groups along with altering ports used are most often outside the scope of the application developer. Cyber Oceans usually builds the database and turns it over for review and implementation to a customer's DBA. However, we can install your database to your hosting providers server and create the appropriate user identity your web application will use when authenticating. Security items remaining under the developer's scope would include the encryption of sensitive data within the database along with securing the connection string within the application itself.

In summary, Cyber Oceans follows industry standards and database best practices when creating the foundation upon which your application will operate. You can be assured that when it comes to normalization, performance and security, Cyber Oceans will do it best to ensure the database of your web application will provide the solid foundation required.

** Cyber Oceans prefers to use MS SQL Server as it's database platform when creating customer database solutions.

Web Services

We have years of experience building, deploying, and consuming various web service technologies.

  • WCF [Windows Communication Foundation]
  • WebAPI2 [Web Application Programming Interface]
  • Classic SOAP [Simple Object Access Protocol] Web Services
3 Tier Development

What exactly is a service?

A web service is an implementation of a clearly defined business function that operates independent of the state of any other service. It has a well defined set of platform-independent interfaces and operates through a predefined contract with the consumer of the service. Services are loosely coupled [a service need not know the technical details of another service in order to work with it] all interaction takes place through the clean interfaces.

Data between the consumer and the service are passed in XML format over a variety of protocols. The main protocols that web services use today are SOAP [Simple Object Access Protocol] and REST [Representational State Transfer]. While REST uses the existing internet infrastructure [HTTP], SOAP is independent of the network layer and can use a variety of network protocols like HTTP, SMTP.

Benefits of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA):

  1. Platform Independence – Since web services can be published and consumed across development and operating platforms, an enterprise can leverage its existing legacy applications that reside on different types of servers and build additional functionality without having to rebuild the entire thing. It also helps an enterprise to integrate its applications with those of its partners.
  2. Focused Developer Roles – Since a service is a discrete implementation independent of other services, developers in charge of a service can focus completely on implementing and maintaining that services without having to worry about other services as long as the pre-defined contract is honored.
  3. Location Transparency – Web services are often published to a directory where consumers can look them up. The advantage of this approach is that the web service can change its location at any time. Consumers of the service will be able to locate the service through the directory.
  4. Code Reuse – Since SOA breaks down an application into small independent pieces of functionality, the services can be reused in multiple applications, thereby bringing down the cost of development.
  5. Greater Test-ability – Small, independent services are easier to test and debug than monolithic applications. This leads to more reliable software.
  6. Parallel Development – Since the services are independent of each other and contracts between services are predefined, the services can be developed in parallel – this shortens the software development life cycle considerably.
  7. Better scalability – Since the location of a service does not matter anymore, the service can be transparently moved to a more powerful server to service more consumers if required. Also, there can be multiple instances of the service running on different servers. This increases scalability.
  8. Higher availability – Since the location of a service does not matter and you can have multiple instances of a service, it is possible to ensure high availability.

3 Tier Development vs 4-Tier SOA Development

Our projects most often follow the n-tier tangent. Using MS SQL, C#, Microsoft's MVC Web Development technologies along with HTML5, jQuery and Bootstrap or Zurb Foundation for responsive design. We can create your database, the Data-Access Layer [DAL], the Business Logic Layer [BLL], and your Web tier [UI]. If applicable, we can also implement the consumption and/or creation of web service dependencies elegantly.

For your database, we prefer to use MS SQL Server. When gathering and discussing your requirements, we define the entities of your application along with what your data point objectives might be. From this, we create the foundation of your application, the database. We define the relationships between entities and create the various tables using industry standards and best practices. Once your relational database is created, we now have the foundation to start building your application. If your project is what is consider a Static Website [essentially just the UI], the need for a database to be created does not apply.

The database is complete, now we need to make the code to access the database. When we want to create, read, update or delete [CRUD], this is the code that communicates between the database and your application [specifically between the database and the BLL]. On this DAL tier, we prefer to use the Repository Pattern and Microsoft's Entity Framework or Dapper.Net with standard SQL Stored Procedures (similar to Microsoft's SqlHelper back in the ASp.Net 2.0 days).

With a portion of your DAL complete, we can start on the Business Logic Layer [BLL]. This tier handles business rule enforcement, handling many to many relationships can be concisely handled here also. This layer handles each entities expectations between the application and the DAL and provides a clean and concise interface for the web tier to call often with one or two lines of code per method opposed to verbose code not seperated into seperate tiers. Keeping code DRY and modular allows for a more organized, scalable, less error prone, and easy maintain platform. Code written without scalability and code re-use in mind soon becomes more like bad game of Jenga than a professional enterprise worthy application code base. It's important/critical your Developer has the experience to know and appreciate the difference.

Often the most fun of all tiers, it's time for the UI. During our UI design phase, we collaborate with you making image screen shots of what your UI might look like. Once the page flow, and functionality is defined... and agreed upon, the building of the UI can begin. using industry standards and best practices, a clean solution for the UI is created. using Zurb Foundation, you can be assured that your site/application will render beautifully regardless of device. Some web development companies will build you a web application and try to sell you and additional mobile application of the same site. At Cyber Oceans, we believe in one solution for all devices. Along with cross-device and cross-browser capabilities, we strive to make Search Engine Optimization [SEO], Industry Best Practices, and W3C validity a core default objective/standard.

When considering vendors to build your next web project, consider Cyber Oceans.
