I am an Ethical Vegan Website Developer. Web development can range from developing a simple single or multiple static pages website to complex web-based applications.
There are many kind of developers covering different aspects of development. Many web agencies but only a few of them can really define them self as Ethical.
What is an Ethical Vegan Website Developer
The word Ethical is overused and abused most of the time. Apart from technical aspects, where as developers we do our best to make our products accessible to anyone.
Companies define them-self ethical just because they care about accessibility and purchase a low carbon emission certificate. Because their website is named Ethical. Or because they don’t overload their employees of work driving them insane and turning the workforce into Emma. But that’s not Ethic, that should be a standard practice for the future.
Lots of Web agencies and developers like to use the work ethical or vegan. But then they drive a none electric car to go to the shop around the corner. Buy cakes with animal products, use none renewable energy providers and so on. That’s no longer sustainable and definitely not ethical.
Web Development definition
There are three kinds of web developer specialization: front-end developer, back-end developer, and full-stack developer. Front-end developers deal with the layout and visuals of a website. Back-end developers deal with the functionality of a website. Back-end developers will program in the functions of a website that will collect data.
As an Ethical Website developer I am specialized in Full Stack development and UI/UX design. I cover the entire software life cycle from Idea to Production.
Why I can define my self an Ethical Vegan website developer?
- I host all my websites with a Green Hosting Provider that uses a renewable energy supplier to power its data-center.
- I do not drink coca cola, do not wear Nike shoes, and I am not a fan of Amazon. They all exploit humans and since we are animals that’s unethical too.
- I use a renewable energy provider at home to power my workstation and devices.
- I do not eat or buy products made from animals, I am an Ethical Vegan since 2012.
- Back in 2010 I have sold my car and van and started moving around exclusively using a bicycle.
- I do not support Fast Foods chains like McDonalds or KFC or Burger King. Even if they offer vegan options they are still killing animals on the other side of the table.
These were just a few examples but you probably get the point.
As an Ethical Vegan Website Developer I think that a clear and open price structure is also important. It guarantees no surprises for clients, and this is what I charge to develop a static website inclusive of design.
Ethical CMS Development
Among web professionals, “web development” usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building web sites: writing code. Most recently Web development has come to mean the creation of content management systems (CMS).
These CMS can be made from scratch, using a Framework like Laravel or using an open source solution like WordPress.
A bespoke application plan is ideal for those businesses looking to achieve specific tasks with a custom solution. While a CMS website plan is a WordPress open source solution that can be customized based on your needs.
A CMS allows non-technical people to make changes to their web site without having technical knowledge.
My CMS website plan is a great way to get started. If you have any special requirement just get in touch for a dedicated quote or checkout my hourly development plans.
For larger organizations and businesses, web development teams can consist of hundreds of people. Following standard methods like Agile methodologies while developing websites like I do with the help of an in-house Jira server.
