Are you up with the latest standards? Is your website accessible?

Learn web accessibility: its importance, benefits, and impact on user loyalty.


The web is constantly changing and evolving. What was considered best practice a year ago may now be outdated 🙃  

And no, staying current with the latest web and mobile development standards is not just about keeping your site looking modern - it’s more about ensuring:

  • compatibility
  • security
  • accessibility

That's precisely why our team keeps up with the latest development standards, to ensure your app is secure, fast and user-friendly 🤝    

Better performance ⚡︎

Modern development standards introduce optimized codebases, leaner frameworks and more efficient algorithms, all of which contribute to faster load times, smoother interactions and a more robust overall performance.

Your users have to stay engaged and not turn to competitors, due to sluggish response times…  

Enhanced security 🔐

Using the latest standards in development means your application is less vulnerable to security threats. This protects not just your data but also the information of your users, which is paramount in building trust with your audience.   Updates usually come with optimizations that improve the performance of your applications. This can mean faster load times, better resource management and an overall smoother user experience.   We have to agree on this: Happy users are more likely to convert and become loyal customers!  

Improved UX

Current development standards prioritize:

  • responsive design
  • accessibility
  • intuitive navigation

All of this is ensuring that your product not only meets but exceeds user expectations.

Moreover, these standards keep you aligned with the latest UX trends and technologies, from voice navigation to gesture controls.  

Better SEO

Search engines favor websites that load quickly, that are secure and are mobile-friendly—all of which are encouraged by current web development standards.

By following these guidelines we can help improve your site’s visibility, driving more organic traffic.  


In a crowded marketplace, leveraging the newest technologies can give you a significant competitive edge. It can make your services or products stand out by offering something more efficient, secure and user-friendly than your competitors.    

Why does Accessibility matter so much?

It ensures everyone can use a website. It is no longer an afterthought, it’s a crucial aspect of web design and development. Ensuring your website is accessible to people with disabilities is not just a moral obligation, it’s a legal requirement in many jurisdictions. An accessible website can reach a wider audience, improve your site’s SEO and enhance user experience for everyone. Many people, faced with plain and uninviting text, tend to skip it and scroll further, just like this one. Making your website accessible means everyone can use it easily. Sadly, many sites don’t follow this rule, making it hard for people to use them…


How often have you caught yourself struggling to read a text on a website because the contrast and the sizing were inappropriately set?   Or been shocked when a video started playing unexpectedly as soon as you loaded a page?   → This is an experience many of us have faced, and it highlights a crucial aspect of website design that often goes overlooked: Accessibility and User comfort.     For example, you probably skipped the paragraph before the image, because it's not visually interesting and it has no:

  • boldness
  • color
  • format
  • structure
  • media content

A website without accessibility is like a library with no doors—full of valuable information and potential, but impossible for anyone to enter and explore...


SEO (Search Engine Optimization)


Equally important is ensuring your site is easily discoverable. Everyone wants their product to be successful and easily searchable.   👉🏻 This is where SEO comes into play, it boosts your site's visibility and makes sure it reaches the widest possible audience.

Think of it like this: when you search for something on Google, you usually check out the first few options that pop up, right?

Everyone wants their product to land in those top 10 spots because it means more people will find and click on it.

Simply put:

Good SEO helps your product stand out in a crowded marketplace.
