Full service Joomla! website development

20 Years of CMS experience
I started building Content Management System (CMS) websites when Mambo CMS first came on the open source market back in 2000. When many of the core developers left Mambo to form Joomla in August of 2005, I then made the switch to Joomla. With over 20 years experience building websites, and almost 17 years working with Mambo/Joomla CMS, there's one important thing I've discovered over those 20 years - the web is constantly changing/evolving! It is important to realize that with any web presence, you need to stay on top of your website to keep it current and keep your site visitors "engaged" to keep them coming back. 
What you get
I offer complete - start to finish - Joomla website development. From installing and configuring on your server or mine, setting up and configuring Joomla and its connected database, installing and customizing a responsive RocketTheme Gantry 5 powered template, initial content and menu setup and layout and more. Every setup is different and has different requirements. The level of content and additional Joomla extensions, depend on the Joomla package chosen, and the amount of content to be added.

What is a content management system (CMS) anyways?

And why use one
A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.

About Joomla!

One of the top CMS's on the market
Joomla! is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla! the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla! is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.

What are some real world examples of what Joomla! can do?

Main uses of Joomla
Joomla! is used all over the world to power Web sites of all shapes and sizes. For example:
  • Corporate Web sites or portals

  • Government applications
  • Small business Web sites
  • Non-profit and organizational Web sites
  • Community-based portals
  • School and church Web sites
  • Personal or family homepages

How can I be sure there will be Joomla! support in the future?

Joomla! is the most popular open source CMS currently available as evidenced by a vibrant and growing community of friendly users and talented developers. Joomla's roots go back to 2000 and, with over 200,000 community users and contributors, the future looks bright for the award-winning Joomla! Project. Not to mention it has been evolving for 17+ years!

About RocketTheme
RocketTheme is my go to developer for Joomla templates and extensions. With their new Gantry 5 version templates, customizability of Joomla websites is a breeze. I have built two websites with the same RocketTheme template that look completely different. I start with a RocketTheme Gantry 5 responsive template, and completely change the look of it through custom style formatting. No two websites I build look the same, nor will they look like anything else on the internet.
Read on below to see why I use RocketTheme
