Why Hire Us?
Best Knowledge of the System
Our team built Aurora from the ground up, using WordPress as our backbone. We know every nook and cranny of the system and can help you optimize your site.
Our themes on Aurora are designed to be responsive. They work and look good on any device, from desktops to smartphones. We use Bootstrap to do the heavy lifting as well as custom programming.
As a state agency, UConn is committed to ensuring that every person, regardless of impairment, has equal access to our sites. We do our best to conform with WCAG 2.0 and have accessibility in mind whenever we start a new project. Experts on our team can also help you make your content accessible.
Working with the Web Dev team is more affordable than going with outside vendors. We charge $50/hr. for custom design work and $75/hr. for custom programming.
Long Term Support
The Web Dev team is dedicated to maintaining and upgrading the Aurora service to ensure the University and its sites stay visible. Central themes/plugins as well as custom themes/plugins developed by the Web Dev team will be supported indefinitely. You can rest assured that if any issue should arise with work that we've done, we will be there to fix it.
Foster Student Employees
Student employees are a key part of success of the University as a whole and within ITS. We employ talented students each year and foster their growth with real projects and real clients. Former Web Dev student workers have gone on to work for high-profile tech and Fortune 500 companies.
