FAQ

Some common questions about Interaria’s use of technology in web and mobile application development environments.

Does Interaria offer XHTML web coding?
Yes, very much so. XHTML stands for Extensible HyperText Markup Language which is a combination of XML and HTML. If you want your website to be interoperable with modern browsers going forward, it is recommended that your website be coded as XHTML. Interaria recommends coding and validating new websites to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C.org) XHTML 1.0 Strict standard. One of the goals with XHTML is to separate a Web page’s content from its styling. Interaria develops also websites with XHTML5 as part of HTML5 development.
Does Interaria offer JSON web coding?
Yes, we do. JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a development platform for Java programmers to create light weight (fast loading and operating) web applications. We recently developed Facebook login integrated website registration application on a JSON development platform. In this case JSON was used to create asynchronous HTTP data transmit request from Facebook to the registration page. JSON is an independent development language that uses conventions that are familiar to programmers of the C-family of languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Perl, Python, and many others. Since Interaria is profecient in java and the C-family of languages, adapting to JSON has been smooth.
How does CSS3 add creativity to my website?
From the creative point of view CSS3 offers some elegant features such as experimenting with a variety of new HTML fonts, creating CSS based shadow effects and rounded corners, and adjusting the opacity level of objects. CSS3 can translate to increased brand identity presence without compromising fast loading times - important for SEO.
Do you offer HTML5 development?
Yes, Interaria develops HTML5 video, audio, header and canvas elements that are designed to make it easy to include and handle multimedia and graphical content on the web without having to resort to proprietary plugins. We can also create HTML5 animations with Adobe Edge. Please visit our HTML5 web development page for more information.
How do PHP/MySQL web applications benefit my website?
In number of ways. First of all PHP is a dynamic web coding language that allows development of a wealth of web applications integrating well with XHTML codes and MySQL database. Any interactive user interface on your website (such as a customer login system, a registration system, My Account pages, file sharing with clients, a member forum, a quiz or a game) typically requires a web application of which scripts interact with a website’s database retrieving and storing custom data variables. Our specialty is to develop content management system integarted database driven web applications so that our customers can themselves adjust critical data variables within these applications.
Is it possible to play animations on iPhone or iPad?
Yes, with Adobe Edge animation program we can create HTML5 and CSS3 code based animations that are iOS device compatible. As widely known, iOS devices do not support a Flash player. If you have an existing Flash animation it may be possible to convert the animation to HTML5 with Google’s Swiffy program. This technology is new and it has its limitations with regards to the program’s ability to convert Flash based user interfaces to HTML5.
Tell me about the recent development of using web fonts.
Today, web and mobile sites no longer have to be coded with the "common' web fonts (Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, Georgia) etc. We have new ways to code and embed a wide variety of fonts as HTML fonts to web and mobile by streaming them externally from the service provider's server. Typekit fonts bu Adboe "perform beautifully wherever they’re needed". They ara available for a small lisence fee. Google Web Fonts on the other hand are open source fonts available for anyone’s use without any license. They are a wonderful source to add new font styles to your website and to seek for creative HTML font solutions. Google Web Fonts stream from Google’s server to your website, i.e. this is an API service that requires (free) hosting environment from Google. The command to place a Google Web Font to your website will be coded to your website’s CSS. Google Web Fonts
Tell me about your software engineering expertise.
Interaria’s web and mobile services go a layer deeper with our professional software engineering services. Our software engineering perspective means applying a systematic and disciplined approach to application development. When developing applications we make sure that they can handle large data growth and scalability, and that all codes are systemized and well-documented. Our custom web and mobile application development process can apply codes and methods from software engineering languages and approaches (C++ Development, Oracle Database Development, Java Application Development, Big Data Development, Distributive Application Development) according to each project’s requirements. In the cases where the application is desired to be running offline, our expertise in these software engineering languages may also be useful.
Tell me about your agile project development approach.
If your company is looking to create a large web or mobile application or a dynamic website with several web application systems, you may have tens of pages of project specs and lots of ideas that as an end result need to be turned into a functioning database schema with elegant user interfaces. Some features for the project may be regarded crucial while some other features may not be a top priority or may require more thinking and clarification as the project planning moves forward. An agile project development approach acknowledges that web and mobile application development may be a fluid and rather organic process ideally carried through as interactive teamwork in close communication with the client. An agile framework allow revising development goals in monthly cycles during the project according to the direction and feedback from the client.
How do you optimize mobile web sites?
When developing properly optimized mobile sites several decisions has to be made regarding messaging, content and codes:

Creating a Redirect Strategy: Many visitors access websites through Google Search. If the link Google places in its search results leads to a url of a desktop version of the site, it is important that the page owner has a strategy in place with regards to how to handle a visitor on a smartphone. A good practice is to redirect the visitor to a relevant page on the mobile site rather than to take the visitor to a mobile site's landing page. Furthermore, dynamically created pages and content should also be formatted for mobile viewing. The larger the desktop site is, the more work it takes to create an effective redirection strategy. Consider delivering all relevant content on a mobile site making sure that all links stay within the mobile site.

Unifying Content Management Systems: Especially when developing a large scale site it can be cumbersome to manage two versions of the site, the desktop site version and the mobile site version. Content updates such as adding text or images would take a double amount work in case these sites would utilize two separate, disconnected content management systems or no content management systems at all. A content that streams from one centralized content management system saves time and minimizes errors. An experienced content management system developer can create a custom CMS solution with specified features for a desktop site and specified features for a mobile site, while maintaining most of the content under one umbrella.

Providing Mobile Optimized Media Content: Flash videos, games and animations don't play on Apple's iOS devices and require a strategy how this type of content will be handled on mobile devices. Rather than displaying a message of not viewable content for the user's device, it is better to offer alternative content making sure the mobile site doesn't appear broken or come across as a secondary version.

Considering a Responsive Design: Instead of building a separate mobile web site, a client may consider a combination site designed and coded responsibly according to responsive design principles. Mobile applications developed with HTML5 utilizing responsive user interface design focus on adjusting the presentation of web media content for mobile device use. A strong well planned out CSS rules and coding is the key for successfully implementing the responsive design method. According to set CSS rules, the display of the applications’s content layout and components may be programmed to auto-reformat for display mobile differently than on tablet or desktop. An example of responsive web design would be for a layout that displays four columns of content in a ‘landscape’ view on tablet devises, but when in ‘portrait’ view, would auto-shift to show only two columns of content instead of 4. Further, then when the same content is viewed on a mobile devices, the content would shift to slim down further to show only one column of content. Responsive UI Design is not a mobile web application framework but rather a method for allowing well planned and coded HTML5 content to display differently on desktop, table and mobile.

Bottom Line: A properly optimized mobile site takes a user to a correct relevant page when accessing site through a search engine result link, indexes well on search engines, displays content in a mobile friendly manner, and has a fluent flow for interactivity.
