Front End Developer Road Map

This article came across my news feed today.  It struck a chord as Web Services has been working with clients who are developing their own Web Developer talents.  It’s an interesting new consulting track we are getting into as we learn different clients developer’s have various levels of skill – but all consider themselves web developers.  Its a world…

Web Development is a complex thing and so many parts to it.  Not everyone can know them all and there is always constant learning.  Choosing the right skill set for your developer is important – see this article on CUSO Magazine.  You need someone who knows the right parts to make you project successful, but also one that is not going to cost an arm and a leg.  This is one of the reasons having a team, like CU*Answers Web Services, where individuals support each other’s knowledge and skill deficits works well.

Anyway, back to the article.  This article is a visual roadmap of all the things you might need to learn as a front end developer for a website.  Not all websites require all these tools and concepts, but your web developer should probably be aware of most of them.  This roadmap is also changing as new tools and security concepts emerge.

Take a look at the article.  I hope you appreciate all that’s involved in web development.  Its not all just pretty pictures and HTML Code.

Website Alerts and How We Do Them

You’re not going to guess what the Web Services Team did a lot of this week.  Maybe you are.  This past week we published a bunch of alerts on credit union websites about this virus thing everyone is talking about.  A people virus, not a computer virus.

Luckily, CU*Answers Web Services was prepared for this.  We’ve published special alerts on credit union websites before for things like weather related closings, power outages or telephone troubles at branches.  If your credit union website is on our WordPress with SiteControl platform, we have the ability to turn on Notifications Bars.

ChiPhone website screenshot with Notification BarNotification Bars appear at the very top of your website to highlight an important notice for your members.  These notification bars are highly customizable and mobile responsive.  Here’s a screenshot of a site with a live notification bar enabled:

If you have a need for an alert to your members on your site — and who doesn’t this week? — let us know.  We can enable this feature and the content is manageable in your WordPress dashboard.  Also we’re happy to add the content for you, just let us know what you would like it to read.
