As far as Web Platforms go, WordPress is currently leading in web development for our office.
While Wix was once top dog at our agency, we are seeing a sharp adjustment in trends, spiking towards WordPress and custom coded conversions. As a cloud based platform, our developers find Wix is prone to frequent software updates that sweep the servers causing elements to shift. Errors are not uncommon to experience on Wix, with our latest issues being reverted changes from a cached history of 1-2 weeks.
In July, TNW Creations' CEO, Erin Quarles was one of a small handful of guest speakers for an Investor Meeting, where Erin detailed the numbers behind the overloaded servers, citing users topping at nearly 300,000 per server and poor website performance across the board. Wix appears to be struggling to keep up with the overload of users and not enough servers. What is Erin's solution for Wix.Com? More servers per user ratio and stable infrastructure to withstand the constant updates.
I've been programming, designing, writing and publishing professionally online since 1995. I've worn many hats throughout my life, but the common core of my career has always been media. Besides theportfolio you see on TNW Creations, my internet presence has been substantial for over 2 decades. In 1995, while still in college, I founded TNW Creations and became part of the grassroots development for teaching the Lakhota language online. By 2004, my bilingual work was listed on many sites, including National Geographic , Encarta and Touchstone Pictures Hidalgo. When I'm not developing and writing, you'll find me managing MagicStoryLand.Com, creating kid-friendly game & video content, investigating and initating hostile website takedowns, posting salty articles about cyber threats, moderating UnifyLife.Org and enjoying my community, church & family.
