Q. What development technologies were used to create your new 2024 mobile & web application user experiences?

This is one of the most common questions I am asked right now. The new BETA 2024 mobile & web application user experiences - the website you see here - was created with responsive web design for mobile experiences and parallax support directly in mind. I wanted to make sure that former clients, prospects and future employers could get a lot out of understanding how I can help them in 2024 just by visiting my website. I also wanted to make sure their user experience was similar and cutting-edge across most major smartphones, tablets and desktop computers.

The actual technologies I used to develop my new 2024 mobile & web application user experiences are Asp.NET Core, Bootstrap, CSS, HTML5, JavaScript, Jquery, Entity Framework, Web API, SQL Server and AngularJS. Not all technologies have features currently live with the build you see here, but all these technologies are being used right now to create the features that make up the current and near future features of my website.

Q. What development technologies are the best for developing a website or web application?

The choice of technology depends significantly on your preferred stack and the goals you aim to accomplish. Different developers lean towards various technologies, such as IIS => Microsoft & Java or PHP => Apache/Tomcat, and/or Python, or Ruby. Each technology has its strengths, with capabilities to interact with databases like SQL, MySQL, Oracle, and various NoSQL databases.

In my view, the key criterion for selecting a technology lies in its proven track record, security, and its ability to offer innovative solutions for effective application development. For my contemporary projects, I primarily utilize Asp.NET Core on the server side. Yes, this is true. On the client side, I advocate for the use of HTML5 and CSS3 as a minimum standard to ensure responsive web design (i.e., mobile-friendly). Additionally, I leverage Bootstrap for rapid web architecture and incorporate technologies like AngularJS and jQuery to handle web service, RESTful operations, and other advanced features, and/or I focus on a more Blazor driven series of components, where they can be reused in .NET Maui, used to faciliate assets that can be used to generate desktop, web & native, mobile applications.

In the end, the goal is to provide a robust and modern foundation for building websites, web applications. mobile applications, etc. It just so happens I have been a Microsoft based Full Stack developer for most of my advanced software develop efforts.

To be honest, though, if I was asked that question today, now, I would describe much less, and send those interested in services to my services page, where I have my latest technology usages showcased. Please, visit, "Jason Silvestri 2024 Services page for more details.

Q. Is an attractive design necessary for a website?

Absolutely! 98% of all people viewing this site, are viewing a site that looks pretty cutting-edge if I were asked my opinion. However, if you viewed this website any day before Dec 22, 2016 (long time ago), I had a temporary site that was literally growing grass from the corners of it. It was dated, and uneventful.

An attractive website and/or web application must now look great, and work on most smart phones, tablets, and desktop computers to boot.

Q. Can you give a free consultation on an new or existing website or web application?

I have no problem answering a few questions for a person or business seeking help on a simple issue, and help determine what it will take. Rarely can I do a deep investigation of a current complex development while I am in the middle of a project without some sort of compensation. You can always get my attention on Twitter, LinkedIn, or by using my contact page here.

If you need help with SEO, I do make most website and web application search engine ready when I develop them. For advanced search engine optimization services, I can talk to you About the most common and refer you to some good places.

Q. Do you conduct some kind of webinars for young web designers?

Not anymore, but I miss it. I use to do speaking engagements and a bunch of complimentary social media support for personal brands and entrepreneurs. I do plan to revisit it all, I do have some old, but relatively useful videos on YouTube you can check out, and I do have some new 2024 videos coming!

Q. Can I order a logo design for my website?

No, not really. I am primarily a web & mobile application developer and solution architect. Often I will work on enterprise applications, as opposed to creating design assets, using Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, for example. However, I can hold my own as a graphics designer. It was the way to be before more advanced CSS & HTML5 hit the scene. Still, I much rather refer you to a far better designer than I, who could create the same, more efficiently, and at a cheaper price.

Q. How can I get support for a website designed by your company?

Q. How much do you charge for services?

How much I charge for services greatly depends on the answers to some questions. Who is approaching me - person or business? How many technologies are needed to complete the project? Our we talking W2, 1099, sole proprietor or C2C (Corp-to-Corp) project?
