Facebook just never disappointments me. We have faith in them. Just recently they've released this open source web language called hack. They claimed this to be pure awesomeness. So what's this? Hack is a language that runs on Facebook's Hip Hop Virtual Machine (HHVM). Hack is very similar to PHP, and in fact, PHP code are 99% valid Hack code.
I wouldn't go too deep. If you wanna know more, check this place out: http://www.hacklang.org
Web technology has been growing so rapidly it's just crazy. It all began from PHP and JQuery when Beamstyle started its journey. Now, it's all about HTML5, CSS3, mobile-responsive solutions, single-page sophisticated web applications. Beamstyle is proud to say we're handling this type of new technology pretty well.
Well, so what's next?
That's right, it's the time to have a revamp again, as our website still uses the old and stinkey HTML4 technology, and non-mobile responsive. Oh yeah, and our portfolio is a bit outdated too. We've done some real cool stuff, and we'd like to compile that together with the fresh new look. I'm already getting some complaints and back-offs from our prospective clients and that's just not too cool.
We've updated some coloring on our website just to make it a little more cool for the time being. In the long run of course, we'd have to revamp!
This is in our todo list now... Will keep everyone posted!
BeamStyle started from a part-time freelancing company, to a one-man company working from home, and then worked its way to an industrial office with 3-4 employees. In two and a half years, BeamStyle now has 8 employees in a commercial office, working with a variety of world's greatest firms.
We've obtained a fair share in both the local and global web design market, and are continuing to expand our reach into Europe, Mainland China, & Japan. We achieved this because we target for world-class top quality web sites, top quality mobile apps, and top quality graphic design.
At the same time, we're always targetting for improvement on our work. One of the top challenges here is of course our own web site. No it wasn't of low quality, but it surely was getting a little old, so we've been talking about this revamp project since August last year.
Revamping our web site may sound like a breeze for us, but it really took a hell of an effort to make things perfect: graphical design , dynamic effects, browser compatibility, W3C markup compliance, search engine optimization (SEO), proper redirects from old URLs cached by search engines, content duplication prevention, multilingual support, meta tags for keywords of different languages, headings & titles, you name it. All of this stuff show our professionalism in this field, and this is the stuff that differentiates us from our competitors.
We really have to be 120% careful on this because afterall we're a web solutions firm. If we can't even present our web site properly, how do we gain trust and continuing trust from our clients? We have to be picky about every single detail in this project, and we have to let our clients know that we have the expertise and man power to take on any project they give us.
BeamStyle was happy to receive notification recently for being ranked the 9th place for Best Web Development Companies in Hong Kong at TopSEOs.hk.
We placed the granted seal in our website immediately. This is a great start for us in the web design industry and will continue to serve design excellence in our work.
Beamstyle Design is a proud supporter of startup companies and non-profit organizations. We encourage startups company because being a startup company ourselves, we know there are many obstacles to go through. We got through many of these obstacles and hope that we can contribute back to the entrepreneurial community by offering a discount for our web design services.
Beamstyle Design also would like to contribute to the community by giving special discounts to non-profit organizations. These organizations are spending a lot of effort and time to make our community a better place to live in, and we would like to give them a special offer in return to their generosity.
If you belong to one of the two groups and are interested in our services, please contact us to see how we can work together on our next project.
