It only takes seven seconds to make a good first impression online. In some cases, it can take less than a second. Standing out from the vast array of websites is important, even more so now in the age of post-PC technologies such as mobile, TV and wearable tech. Your website is your company's image, and it has to compete with thousands of other websites.
Having a clean, fresh, unique website is the first step in overcoming that first hurdle of a good first impression. Making sure your customer can get the information they want at a time and that suits them is essential. We work to develop websites that work across desktop computers and laptops, tablet PCs and mobile phones, covering the majority of the gamut for display space. Our sites work with the majority of modern browsers to ensure the latest web technologies can be levied, as well as adhering to the standards of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), including HTML5.

We use WordPress
Cocode Designs loved the ease, expandability and flexibility offered by WordPress. So much so that it's our Content Management System of choice.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a highly flexible content management system, created by the good people at Automattic. It allows site managers and editors to easily add, upload, and manage different forms of content, including static pages or a "Latest News" blog.
It is estimated that WordPress powers 1 in every 4 websites. Tech blogs like Mashable and TechCrunch use WordPress as their site management system of choice, as does The New York Times and CNN for its blogging content. Even celebrities such as Katy Perry, LL Cool J and Usain Bolt use WordPress to manage their content, as well as government bodies such as the UK Government Cabinet Office Digital Team.
Why do we use WordPress?
WordPress, as a piece of software, is free under the GPL General Public License, and we would be lying if we said that wasn't a perk.
However, the real power lies within the amount of customisation WordPress offers, which explains why many other organisations and personalities use WordPress to deliver their online content. The ability to add plugins extends the capabilities of the software to fit your needs, and other features allow it to be easily integrated into external services. Because it is used on so many sites, the security is more robust, but we use external companies and hosting that will hook into and bolster the security features that are available as standard.
But even with the power behind it, it remains one of the more user-friendly systems to use. It is maintained by a team of hundreds, if not thousands, of dedicated programmers and volunteers who all contribute to thorough coding, code auditing and testing before the software is released to the public, and it is designed with you, the site editor, in mind. The editor screen makes it so simple that, as long as you are able to use Microsoft Word or any other word-processing tool, you are able to use WordPress.
