I know what you’re thinking;

“Michelle, what does Development have to do with coffee?”

Let me tell you. Everything.

Besides coffee and energy drinks being our perfect cocktail; it’s also a great way to think of the client/developer relationship. Development is a vast and endless exploration of what you do know, shining light on what you don’t know and learning how to bridge the gap. Most developers speak a variety of languages, some that I’ve been told looks like we are just making it up and it’s some sort of extensive inside joke among developers, while clients also speak multiple, they speak the language of their customers, brand language and their own. I’m here to help bridge the sea between clients and their developers.

Coffee is Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea

web developmentWorking within a variety of industries has proven one thing; everyone doesn’t like coffee and doesn’t have to. Some clients enjoy learning the ins and out of building a robust site and some just enjoy looking at the final product; either way your building a great site that is going to be responsive, rank and ultimately going to help build your brand. Having an agency who understands the needs and wants of your site only makes the process smoother for both the developer and the client. Some people prefer tea and some prefer coffee, I am the latter wholeheartedly.

Taste and Preference are as Fluid as a Developer’s Specialty

Everyone has their favorite way they take their coffee; cream, black, iced, pipping hot, blended etc. Likewise there are so many avenues a developer can take. Full stack, Frontend (present!), Backend, Apps, Software the list goes on and on. Wherever you find yourself in the development spectrum, find your passion and your space and be constantly challenged by it! The best thing for a developer is to find something they don’t know. It’s a frustrating moment for anyone to be confronted by an inefficiency but it’s also an opportunity to elevate not only yourself but your work. Your clients don’t expect you to know every answer you throw at them on a weekly update call, but expressing your willingness to solve the issue will speak volumes. It’s not an inefficiency to not know an answer, it is to not care to find the answer.
