Web development in Canberra

Website Development

The primary service offered by 7Pixel, is the development of high quality websites that you can maintain and update yourself. If you can use Word, you can manage your 7Pixel developed website.

All websites are developed using a content management system (CMS) called Drupal. The same CMS used by:

Drupal is a robust and feature packed system that can expand as your business does.

TEDxCanberra

In 2013 I gave a talk at TEDxCanberra on the power that your mobile phone really has, and how you can leverage it to create something amazing.

I also wrote a blog about it.

The power of a phone meets the flexibility of Drupal

In 2013, I attended an event in Canberra called GovHack. It is a huge event with teams around the country all competing against each other to come up with the most fun, inventive and thought-provoking way of using Government Data.

Website Hosting

As well as developing high quality websites, 7Pixel can also manage the web hosting of your website and manage your Domain Name.

We use an Australian company, with guaranteed uptime of 99.9% and 24/7 support from Australian based support staff.

In the world of web hosting, there are many options, and many of them are cheap. With companies like GoDaddy and CrazyDomains offering a years hosting for under $50, the offer might seem tempting.

Until something goes wrong and your stuck on the phone for 2 hours with support staff who can't answer your question or fix your problem.

Consider the cost of hosting as insurance. Insurance on getting the level of support you need, when you need it most.

I currently have three projects in the GitHub open source repository:

  • CalcVE
  • drupalcontent
  • panoptic

Each of these repositories are the source code for mobile applications I have developed during my time at OPC IT.

CalcVE is a self contained application to calculate the Volumetic Efficiency of internal combustion engines. A handy tool to help mechanics easily calculate a complex equation.

durpalcontent is a test bed for a mobile application with direction connection into a Drupal 7 content management system. It allows the user to take a photo on their phones camera, and upload it directly to a website.

panoptic is the application used in partnership with a Panoptic subsctiption that allows you to monitor the status of your websites remotely.
