Experience Matters

There is a pervasive myth in the computer business that youth holds the keys to technology and experience has no place. The place of experience has revealed itself many times over through dot.com busts and flash in the pans.

It is important for any business involved in technology to put their ear to the train track and listen closely for new technologies that are coming from far off in the distance because one day, that train may arrive and run your technology over.

  • If your heart stopped beating, wouldn’t you prefer a doctor with a decades of heart surgery to one with a few?
  • If the jet you were on was embracing for a thunder storm, wouldn’t you prefer a pilot who had survived decades of such thunderstorms than a graduate?
  • Wouldn’t you prefer the person who built your house to not have you as their first, second or third customer but instead, your one hundred and first?

The same truths apply to the health of your business and the website that represents it.

It is hard to find a company focused on web technologies for decades. There are many new entries in this field all the time.  By new, we mean less than 10 years.

Wisdom: The product of many failures – over a long period of time

If you own a computer, we don’t have to tell you about the lessons of failed efforts 😉 Now magnify that times all the computers we come in contact with and all the websites we’ve created. The lessons of failed efforts result in the wisdom we bring to YOUR website. As a result, we think long and hard about the types of technologies we should embrace and include in our website framework. You benefit from this experience and the careful plotting of our web technology future.

We were creating DOS programs when Windows came out. We learned from that experience and instead of becoming Windows programmers focused on the far away train called the Internet. It was distant, but our DOS lesson proved invaluable and that DOS failure has made us experts in web technology because it caused us to study it long before it was a de facto standard.

We were heavily vested in using Flash for websites only to realize search engines failed with Flash. When Apple pulled the plug on Flash a decade later it was yet another wisdom builder. Another lesson. We took those lessons forward into our latest offering.

The owner of CompuMatter has been viewing websites since day 1 of the Internet and launched his first completed websites in 1998, a site that is still alive today. He goes back to a period in time when the first animated gif was a big deal. When there were no videos, no music, no news. When Netscape was king and Internet Explorer was a mere glint in Bill Gates eye.

He has been passionately staying abreast of the latest in web technology as each year and decade has gone by. As you can imagine, this results in a breadth and depth of knowledge that would do your website justice.

Simply put, there is nothing on all of the Internet that you can find that we cannot recreate and many things we can create that are not found anywhere else.

CompuMatter websites are built on the back of decades of experience
