|Apart from industry
specific experience, the real value that we bring to any web
project is our business sense, our focus on the customer, and our
rapier wit. That being said, we are no slouch in the nerd
department either. Just because we talk about things like
"vortals", "synergy" and other corporatespeak
nonsense, doesn't mean that we can't pop open a Mountain Dew, put
on the theme from "Shaft" and crank out some
killer code. Public Image Limited is proficient with the
- Active Server Pages (ASP):
Microsoft's technology for server side scripting on their
Internet Information Server platform. Very useful for
rapid development of web applications.
Public Image Limited has significant experience and skill with
developing database driven websites using Active Server Pages.
- Portable Document Format (PDF):
Adobe's technology for preserving document layout across all
platforms. PDF's can be viewed by anyone with Adobe's
free PDF viewer (available
from Adobe). Unlike an HTML page,
when you create a PDF document you can be sure that it will
display and print exactly as you have created it on a Mac, PC,
Linux or even a Schwinn machine. The real magic that we
do is to create a dynamic PDF from
- Flash: Macromedia's technology for displaying
animation and interactivity on a website. The downside
to Flash is that you need a browser plug-in to view it, the
upside is that the Flash plug-in is rapidly becoming
Microsoft's VBScript (a subset of Visual Basic) because it can
be natively run on non-Microsoft browsers.
- Structured Query Langage. (SQL): Common language used
to access back end databases. Whether it is Microsoft
Access, SQL Server or Oracle, SQL is what we use to connect
your application to the data.
- PDV-57B: Hasn't been invented yet, but we are sure it
will be pretty impressive.
- GIF, JPG, GIF89 -- Various graphics formats, including
formats for animation that don't require browser plug-ins.
- UNIX: The operating system of real servers. We
tend towards UNIX (or a free variant such as FreeBSD), using
cgi scripting languages such as PERL for "normal"
web pages. As the level of interactivity increases, we
tend more towards Windows NT and ASP because of the decreased
development time (read: cost).
- Streaming Audio / Video: We are comfortable with the
major vendors such as RealAudio or Windows Media.
