About

What hardware & software is used for development? The development process is 100% Mac based – graphics are created primarily in Adobe Photoshop. Web optimisation and preparation is carried out in either Macromedia Fireworks or Adobe ImageReady, now part of Photoshop. Adobe Golive and Macromedia Dreamweaver are used for initial WYSIWYG page layout, whilst database interaction code is edited in BBEdit. Before uploading, HTML files are optimised for faster rendering using BBEdit’s Optimize function. What hardware/software is used for serving? The CANCOM site is served in-house on an Apple Power Macintosh G4, using the G4 Optimised WebStar Server Suite as the main server application and Lasso Plug-in for database connectivity to custom-written FileMaker Pro databases.
