April Auger

I'm a Full Stack Web Developer with a passion for building intuitive, responsive, and highly optimized websites that load fast and create a better user experience. My abilities include a wide range of knowledge in web development and graphic design.

About

Whether you have a small company or a large corporation, I can develop a custom designed website tailored to meet your needs. Unlike some other developers, I don't just throw websites together. I take the time to learn more about your company, your goals, and your target audience. Once I have a solid understanding of your company and your goals, I will build you a website that utilizes the latest technology and implements the important features you need to achieve your goals.

It's important to understand that any web developer can build a website, but not all developers can build a website that generates leads, increases sales, enhances your company's image, and gives you the edge over your competitors. The secret to a successful website is a well-planned information architecture and knowing what features to implement, which is what I do well!

Web Development Life Cycle

Phase

Research & Discovery

The research and discovery phase impacts all phases in the web development life cycle. During this phase, I will gather information about your business goals, target audience, competitors, and website content. Having a good understanding of your goals gives me the knowledge I need to build a product you will love!

Planning

With the information gathered in the research and discovery phase, I will determine the technology to use, define deliverables, create wireframes, build a sitemap, and estimate a timeline for completing your project. The sitemap is a flow chart diagram outlining the hierarchical layout of your website.

Design

During the design phase, all the visual content will be created (images, icons, photos, videos, etc.). A color palette and style guide will be designed and implemented during the development phase. I will create prototypes to provide you with a visual of how your website will appear on mobile, tablet, and desktop computers.

Development

During the development phase, I will develop the front end and back end of your website. The front end refers to the client-side application users see when they visit your website. The back end refers to the server-side applications and the database.

Testing & Delivery

During the testing & deployment phase, I will conduct extensive testing to ensure there are no issues with the functionality, security, usability, compatibility, and performance of your site. Once all tests have passed, your site will be released into production.

Maintenance

The web development life cycle doesn't end after the testing & deployment phase. A website is like any other application, it needs to be updated regularly to provide a safe and secure environment for your users. Regular updates can also improve your site's performance.
