Responsive web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities.
A content management system (CMS) grants you a "behind the scene" access to your website. A CMS gives you control over your website, with the freedom to update it anytime you want. A CMS saves you time and money in the long run by allowing you to make instant changes to your dynamic content while removing the dependency of having to wait for your webmaster for every little detail.
Web standards are fundamental, they define and describe aspects of the World Wide Web. Above all, behind these terms lies a set of standardized best practices for building websites, a philosophy of web design and development based on an architectural pattern. I believe in and respect this philosophy because it is the basis of accessibility and usability of web pages and websites.
My name is Olivier Maloteau. I was born in Brussels, Belgium in 1969. Computers have always been an important part of my life. At the age of 14, my father bought me my first computer, a ZX Spectrum. Since then, the fascination for these machines has never left me.
After I graduated, I founded an advertising agency where I was the lead computer graphic designer.
We did many advertising campaigns in different fields such as cosmetics, pharmaceutical industry, bank, food and exhibition fairs. This experience in design proved later to be a great asset in creating websites.
Originally designed to practice my newly acquired skills, this website quickly became a reference in the video game field. I had underestimated the extraordinary enthusiasm for the legendary Blizzard game: World of Warcraft. With 5.000 unique visitors per day, my website happened to be the first fansite in Belgium. After three years, it counted 2 million visitors. At that moment, I realised that I wanted to quit the printing world to create websites.
For a few years now, I've been working as a consultant for the European Commission. I'm a SharePoint 2010/2013 front-end developer and I am in charge of the intranet. The intranet is aimed thousand of people through the institution. It's quite a challenge and a very rewarding job to work on such a big platform.
As a PHP enthusiast, I created Weebee to practise my skills building great websites besides my mission at the Commission. The name Weebee comes from 'web' and 'be' for Belgium. I have added a couple of e's, shaked them and I got weebee.be..
