Professional design and development of your website
I am Will Dias BSc, MSc, MBCS, CITP. I am a chartered professional software developer with more than 25 years of
expertise in software engineering.
I am experienced in dealing with a wide variety of customers, from individuals to government agencies.
My skills cover the full software lifecycle:
I will lead you through the complete development process:
- initial discussions about you and your business
- discussions about the look & feel of your website - logos, colour schemes, architecture and structure
- discussion about content, pictures and information
- regular updates and previews of the site as it is being developed
- domain name registration and web hosting set-up
- uploading of your site to the web
- increasing the visibility of your site in search engines
Design - I will give guidance in the design of the site, from logos to colour schemes to artwork. You may already have a design, I will help you integrate your design into the pages to create a common feel throughout the site.
I also work with LAMP stacks and ASP .NET
I do not use push button solutions, which often produce unwieldy, slow source code.
Photography & Images - I can arrange for any supporting photographs, should you wish. I provide a professional service either in the studio, or on location.
Domain name and Hosting - I can help to register your chosen domain name, and arrange your web hosting with a 3rd party company, should you wish.
Continued support - You will be able to arrange annual support for your site where I will provide updates to content, and some structural changes. The cost of this will depend on the level of support required, and the estimated frequency of updates.
Most Importantly -
You will be a partner in the development of this site, not just a client. Many development companies take
your requirements and disappear until the site is completed, often not supplying the site that was wanted.
You will have a much greater degree of input, should you wish. This is to be your website, I am the person
who will create it for you.
I am used to working with people and small businesses who have little or no idea of how computers or the internet work. I have a track record of explaining the technicalities in an easy to grasp way, and helping them to understand what I am doing, and why I am doing it.
I pride myself on my honesty and integrity. This means that if I think you would be wasting your money by hiring me, I will tell you so. It means that I will not try to bamboozle you with jargon and Three Letter Acronyms (TLA's). It also means that if I don't feel I can develop a good quality or good value website I will not take it on.

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a massive thank you. It's exciting to have ideas but without the right help that's all they will ever remain. My 'vision' for an education based student website would simply not have happened without your active support, creativity and skill. Thanks to you I have already received excellent feedback from both teachers and students and I have no doubt that the outcome of the project will be very rewarding for both me and all the students involved. Again I can't thank you enough."
