Building websites that stand the test of time

Building websites that stand the test of time

One of the major concerns for clients wanting a website is the longevity of that site. They want to clearly know how long their investment will last in order to budget correctly & get the most from their money. I have seen a lot of WordPress sites over the last 12 years or so, many of which have not & would not stand the test of time.

In this talk, I give away the secrets (not really!) of how I write code & build sites that do stand the test of time.
