Macsi Website Design in Somerset gets a new look

Macsi Website Design redesign

Ok, so it has been around 3 months since we decided the website needed a refresh.

Then we got busy. With client work and projects to do, your own website is not the top priority. For the last three months, our website has been a nicely designed holding page. Then three weeks ago we decided enough was enough, we couldn't take on any new client work as our website was in desperate need of attention! This website design company in Bridgwater needed a new design for its website....Read More

Website Developer Pathway Part 4 - Javascript and jQuery

Posted by Colin Hall on Wednesday 18th of April 2012

This is a blog series of my early years as a web developer. The final part will take you through the years of Javascript and jQuery Development.

You may remember back in part 1 I told how I tried my hand at the dark arts of programming with Javascript. Back then I knew little about real programming, I was good with HTML and CSS but knew no other languages. I had built some very basic functionality with Javascript but anything more seemed like Chinese to me.

I later went on to learn ActionScript 2.0 and 3.0. I found this a lot easier to grasp than Javascript and from there I went on to PHP, from which I was building full-blown web systems. The only piece of the puzzle missing at this point was the client side interaction without using Flash. It was time to revisit my nemesis of a few years ago....Read More

This is a blog series that will take you through my early years as a web developer. Part 3 will take you through the years of PHP Development.

After learning ActionScript 2.0 as part of my development years with Flash, I decided that it was time to learn a core web programming language. I was highly proficient with what I could do with HTML and CSS but at the end of the day they only allowed me to make static websites.

There were 3 real options available Ruby (or Ruby on Rails), .net or PHP....Read More

This is a blog series that will take you through my early years as a web developer. Part 2 will take you through the years of Flash development.

So there I was, sitting with a client discussing the new design I had created for his website, when out of the blue he asked for something; 'I have seen an image changer on a website that I really like'.

That was it! The wheels had come off the bandwagon. How was I going to achieve this?...Read More

This is a blog series that will take you through my early years as a website developer. The images you see above are some of the earliest websites that I have created to show you how it all began.

It all started in 2003 and I was working in a Stockbrokers at the time. I had always had an interest in websites but one day I was wondering 'how are websites made?' 'how do they work?'...Read More

Website Design Apprenticeship

Posted by Colin Hall on Thursday 23rd of February 2012

In August 2011 we toyed with the idea of taking on a website design apprentice here at Macsi. We decided to go ahead and were soon in contact with Bridgwater College in Somerset about taking on one of their students.

A few weeks and signatures later our new apprentice, Josh, came to the office. He has now been with us for nearly 6 months, so we asked him to write a brief post about his experiences so far. This is what he had to say:...Read More
