SonicFog teams with Joomla to offer affordable power for your website.
Each web development project has it's own set of requirements. We make extensive use of JoomlaSonicFog Web Development CMS on over half of our websites because the inherent functionality saves hours of development time. This savings can be passed along to our clients and increases our production capacity. Often times a project has requirements beyond the core capabilities of the Joomla CMS. In these cases we can proceed in one of three directions.
  • Look for a third party Joomla component.
  • Develop a custom Joomla component, in house.
  • Develop a custom site outside of Joomla.
This displays the advantages of a SonicFog solution to your website needs. We will build you the most affordable solution that meets or exceeds your developmental requirements. If a customized software solution is needed we have the skills to do that. If we can save you money using the Joomla CMS we offer that as well.

Now here is a gift for you! The SonicFog staff will be writing a series of Joomla development articles designed to help you better understand the Joomla CMS. We'll be starting with topics around the Joomla Administrator. Some people have asked, "Why give away the secret sauce?" Well we want to help our clients have a better experience with their website. Learning to use Joomla is like learning to use any other application, except Joomla is a web application. It's pretty straight forward but there can be some complications. If you have a good place to turn to for reference it will help make the Joomla experience a better one. This equates to less wasted time for your team and less calls for site maintenance and support. Keep your eyes here for the upcoming reference articles.
While there is a commercial product for the Python development platform called Webware, the term has sprouted up as shorthand term for Web Application or Webapp. In fact, Wikipedia (as of this writing) defines webware thusly:
In software engineering, a Web application or webapp is an application that is accessed via Web over a network such as the Internet or an intranet. It is also a computer software application that is coded in a browser-supported language (such as HTML, ASP, PHP, Perl, etc.) and reliant on a common web browser to render the application executable.

Web applications are popular due to the ubiquity of a client, sometimes called a thin client. The ability to update and maintain Web applications without distributing and installing software on potentially thousands of client computers is a key reason for their popularity. Common Web applications include Webmail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis, discussion boards, Weblogs, MMORPGs and many other functions.

SonicFog was early to recognize the advantage of webware and the trend toward web based applications. With webware, no longer are you enslaved to your office for the technologies you need. You and your staff are free to collaborate from wherever you are. No more, "Oh, I left that inventory report back at the office." SonicFog can help you move your business processes out of the office and online where secure access can be granted to the key members of your staff, as well as you clients and vendors, if necessary.

Expression Web Team and the SonicFog PartnersMembers of the Microsoft Expression Web 2 development team headed south to the SonicFog Headquarters in Browns Point, WA for a collaborative working session. This was a Contextual Design Meeting in support of the development of Expression Web 2. The Microsoft team was led by Expression Web Evangelist, Anna Ullrich.  Ullrich mentioned that fully 50% of software developers, "consider themselves freelancers" and that her team desired to enhance Expression Web to meet these developers needs.

SonicFog's role was mainly consultative and demonstrative. "The Microsoft team asked the questions and took notes as we answered their questions and demonstrated our work flows," said SonicFog CEO, Tedd Caldwell.

The SonicFog VP of Technology was "impressed by the fact that Microsoft wanted to get down in the weeds with the grunt developers."

A follow-on meeting is planned for the near future at the Microsoft campus that will go even deeper "into the weeds" where the Expression Web Team will observe SonicFog developers as they write code that generates the markup for Content Management Systems' (CMS) components, modules and plugins.

Caldwell noted, "We look forward to working with Microsoft in their efforts to support the little guys in the web development arena."

SonicFog launches unique website proposal process.

SonicFog launched our new online web development process to help our clients get through the proposal process quickly and effectively. Potential clients will answer a series of questions with images to provide examples of styles and funtionality. At the end of the interview, the client will have automatically created a mutually acceptable proposal. The proposal will include a deadline for SonicFog to produce the deliverables. The client will then have the option to chose a payment plan and a payment method before accepting or rejecting the proposal. See the process in action .
