A good Web site is never done—it should evolve over time, in various iterations, to meet ever changing needs of its users.
Regardless of the complexity, these basic guidelines outline the development process:
- Research & Analysis
- Test & Refine
- QA (code and content freeze)
- Completion and Launch
The needs of the stakeholders for the project dictate the complexity of development, but the ultimate goal is to create a Web site that meets the needs of the users.
