Great value for your time. This is a good overview of the process of web development. What I took from it was the exposure to keywords of specific things I need to learn in order to get something up and running quickly that can be sustainable without relying on a bunch of services. It doesn't get too detailed, but it's a 19 minute walk-through if played at 2x speed. This class isn't something to master. It's to lay out what the process is like and what to expect when you do happen to do a deep dive into each part of the process. Other teachings of web development have always left me empty handed even when they pump out 5x more content and even when they teach me real skills. Not knowing what I'm even doing with new skills I'm learning is discouraging because it feels purposeless. It's the knowledge of what problems I need to solve that makes this more valuable for my efforts. I spent close to nothing yet now I'm finally prepared to learn





Laurence Svekis

Web technology Instructor

Providing Smart digital solutions online since 2001. I am considered a true web technology expert. Having professional experience in a wide range of digital areas. Everything from Search Marketing, Video Marketing, Content creation, User Experience, application architecture, and web programming.

Understanding how users flow through the web and learning what drives users to interact online has been the cornerstone of what I do. The more seamless the process the better the user experience and the more likely they are to interact again and share their experiences.

After launching my first websites I quickly realized that to get traffic on your site you need to be able to market online. Research and using personal experimentation as to what are the most successful ways to effectively drive traffic to my websites, I was able to successfully build multiple success eCommerce sites. I used my expertise to provide Search Engine Marketing Services SEO to 100's of clients.

In the advent of Social Media in 2006, I had identified it as an excellent opportunity to drive traffic and connect with users. I created many successful sites that integrated with Myspace and then later into Facebook. I was able to monitize the traffic on several platforms, driving in some cases 10K+ clicks daily to the various platforms. I continued to perfect the art of Internet marketing and adapt to new technology and changes.

In 2008 I created my first YouTube video, and channel. Realizing that there was another great opportunity with video I have been experimenting with video marketing and video monization. Youtube being the second largest search engine has a very bright future. As technology progresses the trend has always been quicker, easier means of delivering content always wins out. Images beat out text as they are easier and quicker for us to process, videos beat out images being the most efficient means of getting content to users. As bandwidth increases, and more platforms that can even easier deliver videos become available videos will be the trend for the future.

Understanding technology provides a means to better connect with users.

Applications I've created have entertained, informed and engaged tens of millions of people. I have over billions of page views on various platforms, and have sent millions of click through visitors.

I have developed hundreds of web applications, from micro sites to enterprise level platforms.
