The Steelhorse Environment builds upon the industry recognised LAMP technologies to accelerate the development process reducing the "time to market" for your web site.
THe Steelhorse Environment was developed to improve developer productivity thereby reducing the time to develop and deploy web sites. It was decided to base the environment on the LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL and PHP) technology. This is one of the main industry recognised platforms for web sites on the internet.
Building upon this platform and by both exploiting and extending the inherent features the Steelhorse Environment significantly improves developer performance. Reducing time spent on the mundane aspects of development and allowing greater functionality to be incorporated into web sites easily.
Clients of Steelhorse Concepts benefit from new features developed in the Steelhorse Environment development programme. As a Steelhorse Concepts client, you will be able to get new featrures incorporated on your web site cheaply and easily as the Steelhorse Environment powering your site is upgraded.
The Steelhorse Environment is not the finished product, as the web evolves so does the environment - you automatically benefit from this. As the powering environment is upgraded so is the technology driving your site. Your site will not change in terms of presentation to the visitor without you requesting it. However the options you have broaden and the features you may wish to incorporate in your site multiply.
Database driven web sites are taking over from the old HTML files sitting on a server as unleashing the power of database technology multiplies the options for web site owners. Your site automatically benefits from this even if you do not use the feature.
The words you are now reading were not typed into a file and uploaded to a web server. They were entered on this page directly by the author. The text was stored in and is retrieved from the database - in this case an en-GB. What's en-GB? It simply means that this text is in English furthermore the English as spelt in Great Britain, like colour as opposed to the United States version (en-US) - color.
You can therefore have different versions of your web pages in different languages - in effect internationalising your business! There is no need to start creating different web pages for each country only the words change - the functionality of the web page requires no upgrade - no developer time at all.
The other features of the Steelhorse Environment are too numerous to list here but amongst them are:
Virtual graphics - the software generates graphics on the fly for form "submit" buttons etc. reducing the need for graphics to be developed for these common elements.
Virtual URI - or virtual pages - there is no need to have a clutter of files on a server and no need to upload pages to the server - this page does not exist!
This site is currently powered by version 1.0.8 of the Steelhorse Environment.
