The technologies employed by Computer Consulting Wizards are constantly being evaluated to ensure that they are still the best way to provide the most productive customer solutions.
WordPress is an open source Content Management System (CMS) which currently powers more than 24% of all websites. Because of it’s enormous user base, the code is constantly under review, updated frequently, and under active development, thus providing a stable, well known platform. In addition, there are over 40,000 plugins which can be used to enhance the core functionality of WordPress. These are the reasons we primarily focus on using the WordPress CMS to build new websites.
As a general principle, we believe that all but the smallest of websites should have an underlying database to manage the website content and ensure the integrity of any data that is gathered. This lowers overall costs for content management and website maintenance, with only a modest increase in initial development cost. The advent of free open source database software has made this possible, and new entrants have given us more options than ever.
Programming and Scripting Languages
When creating web applications, we use PHP for database interaction, business logic and security. We use the jQuery library for client side actions and validation.
