They are usually the first point-of-contact for users when they experience problems with the network. The system administrator will then gather information to define and fix the issue, by trouble shooting hardware and software and liaising with vendors if needed for more information.

System administrators typically install, upgrade and monitor software and hardware. They may also be involved in data backup and recovery. They usually maintain the essentials such as operating systems, business applications. security tools, web-servers, email, PCs, local and wide area networking both hardware and software and mid-range server hardware.

Being responsible for so many aspects of a company s IT systems means the system administrator is required to keep up to date on new developments in the technology industry, in case changes within the company have an impact on the business.

Enable Anonymous Access for SharePoint 2010/2013/2016

Here are 8 simple steps on how to set up anonymous access for SharePoint 2010/2013/2016 publishing sites. Even though, the screenshots below are taken from SharePoint 2010 server, the administration GUI is the same for SharePoint 2010, 2013 and 2016.

1. Starting in Central Administration, under Application Management, click on the Manage web applications.

2. Make sure you select the site you want to enable anonymous access and click on the Authentication Providers icon.

3. On the Authentication Providers pop-up window click on the Default zone.

4. Under Edit Authentication, check Enable anonymous access and click Save.

5. Going back to Web Application Management click on the Anonymous Policy icon.

6. Under Anonymous Access Restrictions select your Zone and set the Permissions to None – No policy and click Save.

7. Now, web application will allow anonymous access to be set. So, navigate to your top level site collection for the web application. Click the Site Actions Site Settings. Under Users and Permissions click Site permissions.

That s all, folks! If you followed these steps properly you should have now Anonymous Access enabled.

Matthew Lamb says:

I also found at stage 8 that I did not have the Anonymous Access option in the Site Permissions page.

This was because I had extended a web application for anonymous access in the Internet zone, but SharePoint for some reason had extended a DIFFERENT web application to the one I had selected. So when I accessed my new URL (for the anonymous site) I was actually seeing the wrong site collection. Everything looked correct in Central Admin, though.

I ended up unextending the web application (using the drop-down on the Delete option in the Web Applications management page of Central Admin, and selecting Remove SharePoint from IIS Web Site), and then re-extending it again into the internet zone. The second time it worked properly.

For those who are experiencing trouble on step 8, make sure you are accessing the site from the home site not the central administration portal . Also you need a user with elevated rights.

Btw Thanks for the post. It really helped.

IOS 11 – s New Files App: 10 Things You Should Know,


iOS 11 s New Files App: 10 Things You Should Know

App developer phoenix

iOS 11 brings a self-contained file system to the iPhone and iPad in the form of the new Files app. The Files app replaces the iCloud Drive app, which was nothing more than a glorified document picker. Files app brings an experience that is much closer to Finder on the Mac, while still following iOS conventions of sandboxing and privacy.

While the Files app is available on both platforms, it really shines on the iPad with drag and drop and Split View support. The first developer beta of iOS 11 is out and we re taking the Files app for a spin.

1. Files from Local Storage and Cloud Services

App developer phoenix

The Browse tab has a Locations section in the sidebar. In the first beta, it only supports iCloud Drive. While there’s a section for local files, I’m not able to add files or folder there. By the time iOS 11 ships, you’ll be able to add third party sources here as well Dropbox, Google Drive, Box and more. And by then, I hope the local storage feature works as well.

2. Classic Nested Folder Structure

App developer phoenix

What makes Files app similar to a file system is the folder structure. And you’ll get a classic nested folder structure here. Tap on a folder and then tap and hold in an empty space to create a new folder.

3. Grid View and List View

App developer phoenix

By default, you’ll see files and folder in a grid view with icons for all folders and files. But you can switch to the list view by swiping down in the folder view and tapping the list view button. List view shows more details file size, modified date and a shortcut to download it.

4. Tags

App developer phoenix

Another Finder feature that makes it to Files app is tagging. You’ll find the default tags like Red, Orange and so on. But you can create your own as well.

5. Intra and Inter App Drag and Drop

One of the biggest productivity features in iOS 11 is drag and drop and how intuitively it works across the entire OS and individual apps. This is going to be a key feature in how we interact with the Files app. We can use the feature for file organization inside the Files app and to move files and documents to and from other apps.

App developer phoenix

On both iPhone and iPad, drag and drop in Files can do a lot, like moving multiple files of different types, in one gesture.

You start by tapping and holding one a file until it starts floating. Keep holding this on screen with one finger while you use your another hand to navigate to different folders and select different files. They’ll all be added to the files you’ve selected for moving. Now, you can go to another folder and release your finger to drop it there. Or drop the files on a tag to tag them.

App developer phoenix

On the iPad, to drop it into another app, like Pages, you can either bring it up in Split View, or you can just bring up the dock, and open an app like Keynote (with another hand, while you’re “holding” the files with one finger) and drop them there. The entire process is really intuitive.

6. Preview and Open Documents

App developer phoenix

Files app can preview some documents right inside the app images and text files for example. But if you have the corresponding app installed, tapping on the file will directly open it in the associated app, instead of opening the preview.

7. Open Zip Files

App developer phoenix

While you can’t archive files, you can open and preview zip files in the Files app.

8. Search Feature

App developer phoenix

Unlike other iOS apps where you have to swipe down to reveal the search bar, the one in files app is persistent, in every screen that has files or folder in it. Also, the search feature is quite basic and searches across the app. You won’t find filters for limiting the search to a particular source or folder.

9. Info Panel for Files

App developer phoenix

When you tap and hold on a file, you’ll see a contextual menu. Tap the Info button and you’ll see a Mac Get Info style panel here that shows what find of file it is, the size, where it’s located, when it was created and modified and its associated tags.

10. Multiple Sorting Features

App developer phoenix

When you swipe down in a folder, you’ll see options to sort files by name, date, size, and tags. There’s no option for reverse sorting. For example, when you tap on Size, it will sort by largest to smallest. There’s no option to sort it the other way around.

How Do You Deal with Files on iOS?

What does your file management workout look like right now on iOS 10? Do you think the Files app will help you interact with files in a better way? Share with us in the comments below.

Top 5 Places to Find a WordPress Developer #wordpress #developer #for #hire,freelance


Top 5 Places to Find a WordPress Developer

WordPress is an open source script that can be customized by any professional PHP developer. If you want to give your WordPress site a facelift, there are thousands of professional web development firms that can help you. However, working with a development company is not always a great idea. Firstly, most of these companies are very expensive. Secondly, because of high work volume a reputed firm can take ages to complete a project. Thirdly, there s a often a communication lag between the client and the programmer, leading to confusion and missed deadlines. Hiring a freelance WordPress developer is often a better way of getting the job done.

Here are the top five places to find professional wordpress developers for hire:


Toptal is a very exciting place for employers to find talented freelancers. Toptal screens developers for you, and only accepts the top 3% to their site. Because their developers are pre-screened, you can get connected with a developer very quickly. If you like the developer you are connected with, you have the option to extend the project long-term and include the developer as part of your team.

– Up to two-week risk-free trial
– Matchmaking service to find the right developer for your job
– Screened developers for quality control (top 3%)

Envato Studio

Envato is a company best-known for its marketplaces like ThemeForest and CodeCanyon. Envato Studio is a platform that can help you find the perfect WordPress developer for your next project. What we love about this site is its exclusivity. Only hand-picked programmers are allowed to offer their services which means that you don’t have to go through hundreds of bids to find someone good. If you are tired of reading spammy applications then you should try this platform.

– Robust dispute resolution process.
– Friendly support team.
– Large number of categories to choose from.

WordPress Jobs

Did you know that there is an official WordPress job board? We stumbled onto it by accident and have been using it off and on ever since! What better place to find a WordPress developer than the site created solely for this purpose? Although it doesn t have all the bells and whistles that modern freelancing sites have, it is frequented by good developers and might be ideal for your small to medium sized projects.

The ability to add/remove a job. That s about it 🙂


Upwork (formerly oDesk) is another great place for for finding freelance wordpress developers. With active postings in the tens of thousands, this site is a major player in the online job market. If you want to build a big team in a small amount of time then the Upwork team can help you out with their special enterprise services.

– Money-back guarantee for hourly jobs
– You can post your projects and explore contractor profiles for free
– Since there is no escrow, fixed-price projects can be a bit risky
– Extremely competitive pricing
– Paypal support

Freelancer is probably the oldest and most recognizable name in the world of online freelancing. The site has helped thousands of small businesses from all over the world. Right now it has millions of verified members and the number is increasing with each passing day. Unfortunately it seems that the people behind haven t really kept up with the competition. You should probably try out one of the above mentioned sites before this one. Here’s a full list of its features:

– No guarantees whatsoever
– In order to post your project you have to pay a $5 fee. An additional 3% for selecting a contractor
– Escrow system to protect your money
– The system doesn’t record the activity of freelancers. An experienced contractor can easily deceive the employer

In the hands of a professional developer, WordPress is capable of amazing things. By joining one of the above mentioned freelance networks you can easily find such a wordpress developer. However there are a few things that you should keep in mind. First of all, don t give the job to a newbie. In most cases, novice programmers produce inefficient code that is hard to maintain and can be very costly in the long run. An experienced and well-established programmer might cost more in the beginning but you won t have to face any problems in the future.

Second of all, if you are short on funds then there is nothing wrong with hiring a programmer from any Asian or Middle Eastern country. If you stay vigilant during the selection process and keep the previous ratings in mind, you won t face any quality issues.

Lastly you should never rush into choosing a developer. Try to conduct phone interviews and pay special attention to each candidate. Who knows? You might find one of those rare developers who go the extra mile.

I hope this article has taught you everything you need to know about finding wordpress developers for hire. Good luck!

Utah Web Designer Developer – Zack Shutt #utah #web #designer, #web #developer,

I ll admit: my weight has changed more times than Oprah s over the past 5 years as an entrepreneur, and maybe some of you are experiencing the same ups-and-downs. Here are 5 suggestions I ve implemented in life to help combat not only those extra pounds, but the fatigue that comes from pushing yourself a bit too far.

The standard long days at work and tight schedules that are associated with entrepreneurship can cause an entrepreneur to develop health problems such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. This is according to an article published by Forbes magazine. With that in mind, here are five tips for becoming a more healthy entrepreneur:

Take Time Off Your Workstation
Do not remain glued to your workstation for hours. Take time to stretch a bit to avoid developing blood clots that could turn fatal later.

Get Rid of Energy Drinks
If you rely on energy drinks to stay up all night or remain focused for long periods, consider ditching them because they do not bode well for business health. In fact, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service (SAMHSA) has gone as far as warning consumers that energy drinks pose a real public health concern.

Healthy Diet
Many entrepreneurs live largely on snacks and unhealthy meals that contain too much fat and sugar. Such meals can increase your risk of developing type II diabetes and heart disease. Health experts recommend avoiding salty, fatty, and sugar-rich foods. Instead, maintain a diet that includes whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and plenty of healthy fluid like fresh juice and water.

Another way of staying healthy is by exercising regularly. Some of the simple exercises that you can squeeze into your tight schedule include jogging, swimming, cycling, hiking, and walking. Consider using an under-the-desk bicycle while working.

While some Silicon Valley legends may have spent many sleepless nights working on their dreams, sleep is vital for your overall wellbeing. More specifically, according to the National Institutes of Health, sleep deprivation can have a negative effect on the endocrine, immune, cardiovascular, and nervous systems. The NIH recommends no less than seven hours of sleep.

To become a more healthy entrepreneur, you should adopt healthy habits. These habits include getting at least seven hours of sleep, eating healthy, cutting back on energy drinks and taking time away from work once in a while. Also, be sure to get screening tests regularly to enjoy maximum good health.

Many have heralded Facebook as the best way to reach new customers and spread the word about your business. However, knowing how to use it properly can make a big difference. By following these tips, you can ensure your social media marketing is more effective than most traditional advertising.

1. Post Regularly: Many business owners set up their social media accounts and then promptly forget they exist. Posting once or twice a day keeps your business name in front of potential customers. Of course, it s also important to post useful and interesting posts. Pictures and videos always help, as do links to news stories or websites related to your brand or product.

2. Don t Simply Self-Promote: Facebook changed their algorithm earlier this year in response to complaints that people were tired of seeing sales-driven content. While it is important to highlight your great products, you want potential customers to see you as more than a billboard. Try posting stories about how people are using your products, or other related but informative information. The purpose is to add value to the post for anyone who reads it, above and beyond how it may increase your sales.

3. Turn Facebook Fans Into Customers: Many small business social media page administrators love to see their likes and seen by stats climb, but how important is this really? Many businesses have thousands of likes, but no interaction on their page. Fans aren t liking their posts, or commenting on them. They certainly aren t sharing your posts with friends. In order to engage fans, you must post quality content regularly and continue to interact with fans. This requires checking Facebook throughout the day, and making a point to answer any questions or messages within 24 hours.

4. Offer Coupons and Facebook Promotions: Offering special fans only discounts is a great way to get Facebook fans in the door. Consider a discount for first-time customers, or first access to great sales through a special promotion for Facebook fans. Many businesses also offer a discount if the fan checks in while in the store. This will serve as word-of-mouth advertising to their friends on social media.

5. Plan Your Social Media Campaign: Facebook makes it easy to schedule posts ahead of time. You can take an hour early in the week to type up all of the posts for the week and schedule them to post each day. Make a calendar, and determine when you will need to push which promotions, and post accordingly. While this is a great tool for time management, beware that you will still need to be checking your page regularly and be engaged.

6. Use Facebook s Statistical Information: Facebook offers business owners a lot of information about their fans through Insights and the Posts tab. Knowing the day of the week and time that most of your fans are interacting with your page can help you to schedule important posts. You can also check the location of your fans, and ensure you are posting content that is relevant to them.

Facebook marketing doesn t have to be expensive, or time consuming. By setting aside an hour a week and a few minutes each day, social media sites allow business owners to interact with their customers in a way that has never before been possible. This translates to more return customers, and more word-of-mouth recommendations of your brand.

Video Game Salary

Video Game Salary Survey

Salaries in the Video Game Industry

One of the fastest growing job markets in the country right now is in the video game design industry. This industry is taking in over $7 billion dollars in revenue yearly. So every employer in this job field is looking for the brightest, most talented new recruits they can find, and they are willing to pay those who fit the bill a very good wage. There are many employers like Blizzard, EA, and Microsoft leading the way and according to a Game Makers Salary Survey this is what they are willing to pay.

Video Game Programmers

If you are a video game programmer. and it does not matter if you specialize in AI, networking or graphic engines, you will on the average, earn more then the other jobs in the industry. The starting salaries are down a little from previous years but that is only because many people have figured out that the video gaming industry is almost recession proof and many college graduates are flooding the industry. Here is what you can expect to make.

Programmers and Engineers first entering the business or with less than three years experience, you can start off by making, on the average, $50,000 a year. If you have between three and six years experience you can plan to earn $66K a year and if you have six years and up on the job you can make over $88K a year.

Lead programmers make a little more when they are coming in, but you will have more responsibilities. The entry level pay for a lead programmer is close to $56,000 a year. Once you have at least three years under your belt you should be averaging about $83K a year. Once you have been in the business for over six years you will make over $90K a year.

Video game technical directors have a lot of responsibilities so they are paid well, even at the entry level. For those coming into the business or having less then three years in the industry you can average $60,700 a year. Once you get between three to six year you can begin to make $73K a year. Those who last in the business for over six years you can expect to make just around $110K each year, one of the highest salaries for this job description was reported at $195,500.

Artist and Animators

In 2006 a survey found that artist and animators were making more money then the previous years and that was at all levels of experience. The largest increases in salary were earned by those with more then three years of experience. Artists have many responsibilities like giving the game its’ look and feel. It seems at the entry level artist may be paid a little less but once you have the experience you can actually make more money then coders. We found that the highest salaried coder made less then the highest paid artist. If you are an artist here is what you can figure on making:

A video game artist that is either just entering the business or has less then three years of experience can plan on making, on the average $41,500 a year. Once you have gained at least three years your earning will increase to $53,300. A game artist that can last in the business for over six years will make $66,700 a year.

Video game animators will make on the average, $46,700 a year for three years of experience or less. There is quite an increase once you make it past the three year mark, you can now make $67,000 a year. Once you have six years of experience as a video game animator you can now earn just over $75K a year.

If you are hired as a lead artist or animator you can expect a salary of just over $64K per year until you have at least three years of experience. Once you have over three years on the job you will begin to make around $67K. Once you have seniority on the job you can make anywhere from $80,000 to a whopping $215,000 a year.

Video Game Designers

When you were younger you probably told your parents that when you grew up you were going to make video games. They probably did not pay much attention to your comments at the time, but now you can actually make that dream job reality. The technical term for those who “make” video games is a game designer. The market for games designers is very competitive and it does not matter whether you are self-taught or are highly educated. The good thing is this position also pays well at all levels of experience. You will also find that the more proven you are in the industry the faster your salary will rise. Employers are looking for people that can withstand the rigors of the job. One of the best pieces of advice for a newbie is to get a mentor to work with.

A video game designer with less then three years of experience will make, on the average $46K a year. With between three and six years experience a game designer can bring home $55,600 a year. Once you have over six years of on the job experience you can average almost $70K a year.

If you are the creative director or lead designer you can bring home $45,000 a year until you have over three years of experience. Then you can start to average $54,000 a year. Lead designers or creative directors with over six years experience will make around $81K a year. The highest reported salary that we were able to find for a lead artist was $180,000 a year.

Video Game Producers

The video game producers manage every aspect involved in creating a video game. They are in charge of every decision being made from beginning to end. They coordinate all the different departments involved, and make sure that the deadlines are met and the project stays on budget. Becoming a video game producer takes a little time and one of the best places to start is in Quality Assurance.

Producers. some times referred to as the project lead usually has a minimum of three years of experience in the industry so we have no figures on what someone who has less then three years experience would make. Once you have had at least three years on the job you can expect to bring home $62,000 on the average. With over six years of experience you will begin to make an average of $80,000 a year.

Executive producers have been known to make, on the average, $50,000 a year. Once you have over six years of experience you can start to command a salary of almost $82K a year. Executive producers with over six years of experience will receive a six-figure salary. The highest salary we found was $200,000 a year.

Video Game Quality Assurance

If you are video game enthusiast but have no technical skills applying in the Quality Assurance department is a great way to get your foot in the door. If fact most producers once started in the QA department and work their way up the ladder

Becoming a game testers is a dream job for most video game enthusiast and you can get paid to actually play the games. You can expect to make $32,000 on the average if you have less then three years of experience. You really do not begin to make significantly more money until you have over six years of experience and then you can make an average of $50,000 ay year.

Any lead QA person can expect to make $40,000 a year until you have over three years of experience. You can then anticipate a salary of $50,000 for up to six years of experience. With more then six years of experience you will begin to make $60,000, on the average. If you are really good and can last in the business you can make a nice chunk of change, the highest report salary for a lead QA is $215,000.

Video Game Audio

This is a growing field in the gaming industry and the average salary has been increasing the past few years. This is especially true for entry-level musicians. Right now it does not matter if you a musician, audio engineer, composer, or a director once you have six or more years of experience you will keep pace with the programmer’s salary.

Sound designers or engineers coming in at an entry-level position cans usually start with a salary of $50,000. Once you get over three years of experience you can make $66,000 a year. A sound designer or engineer will make, on the average $74,000 a year, once they have reached six years or more on the job.

Musicians or composers in the video game design industry will generally have a starting salary of $55,000 a year until you have around three years of experience. Once you have been in the industry between three and six years you will begin making $62K a year. If you have the staying power you can make on the average $90,000 a year once you have over six years in the industry. The highest salary we have found for a musician is $215,000 a year.

Making a substantial living is relatively easy in this field; all you need is a good education and a resilient attitude. The wages quoted above are the result of a survey and adequately reflect the average salaries for each position describe. As with any industry the more experience you have the more money you can make. Now you can tell your parents that “yes, in fact you can make a living playing video games.”

About KV Store collections #splunk, #developer, #dev, #framework, #application, #app, #javascript, #python,


About KV Store collections

The KV Store stores your data as key-value pairs in collections. Here are the main concepts:

  • Collections are the containers for your data, similar to a database table. Collections exist within the context of a given app.
  • Records contain each entry of your data, similar to a row in a database table.
  • Fields correspond to key names, similar to the columns in a database table. Fields contain the values of your data as a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) document. Although not required, you can enforce data types (number. boolean. time. and string ) for field values.
  • _key is a reserved field that contains the unique ID for each record. If you don’t explicitly specify the _key value, the app auto-generates one.
  • _user is a reserved field that contains the user ID for each record. This field cannot be overridden.
  • Accelerations improve search performance by making searches that contain accelerated fields return faster. Accelerations store a small portion of the collection’s data set in an easy-to-traverse form.

For example, let’s say you want to save information about transactions in the KV Store, such as the transaction ID, the status, the name of the user assigned to it currently, and a memo. You could create a collection called transactions_collection , with fields called transaction_id , transaction_status , transaction_owner , and transaction_memo . Each transaction you add to the collection corresponds to a record.

To add KV Store functionality to an app:

  • Create a collection and optionally define a list of fields with data types using configuration files or the REST API .
  • Perform Create-Read-Update-Delete (CRUD) operations using search lookup commands and the Splunk REST API.
  • Manage collections using the REST API.

Got an idea?

We’d love to hear about any ideas you have for the Splunk developer platform. Come on over to our UserVoice page and let us know what you think!

What Is Amazon SES? Amazon Simple Email Service #amazon #developer


What Is Amazon SES?

Welcome to the Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) Developer Guide. Amazon SES is an email platform that provides an easy, cost-effective way for you to send and receive email using your own email addresses and domains.

For example, you can send marketing emails such as special offers, transactional emails such as order confirmations, and other types of correspondence such as newsletters. When you use Amazon SES to receive mail, you can develop software solutions such as email autoresponders, email unsubscribe systems, and applications that generate customer support tickets from incoming emails.

You only pay for what you use, so you can send and receive as much or as little email as you like. For service highlights, FAQs, and pricing information, go to the Amazon SES Detail Page.

Why use Amazon SES?

Building a large-scale email solution is often a complex and costly challenge for a business. You must deal with infrastructure challenges such as email server management, network configuration, and IP address reputation. Additionally, many third-party email solutions require contract and price negotiations, as well as significant up-front costs. Amazon SES eliminates these challenges and enables you to benefit from the years of experience and sophisticated email infrastructure has built to serve its own large-scale customer base.

Amazon SES and other AWS services

Amazon SES integrates seamlessly with other AWS products. For example, you can:

Add email capabilities to any application that runs on an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance by using the AWS SDKs or the Amazon SES API. If you want to send email through Amazon SES from an Amazon EC2 instance, you can get started with Amazon SES for free.

Use AWS Elastic Beanstalk to create an email-enabled application such as a program that uses Amazon SES to send a newsletter to customers.

Set up Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) to notify you of your emails that bounced, produced a complaint, or were successfully delivered to the recipient’s mail server. When you use Amazon SES to receive emails, your email content can be published to Amazon SNS topics.

Use the AWS Management Console to set up Easy DKIM, which is a way to authenticate your emails. Although you can use Easy DKIM with any DNS provider, it is especially easy to set up when you manage your domain with Amazon Route 53.

Control user access to your email sending by using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM).

Take action on your received emails by triggering AWS Lambda functions.

Use AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) to optionally encrypt the mail you receive in your Amazon S3 bucket.

Use AWS CloudTrail to log Amazon SES API calls that you make using the console or the Amazon SES API.

The last 5 months of working with Sprout Creatives has made us realize how many little details and sparks of creativity go into all of our beers. Our craft beers now shine on our new website.

Sprout Creatives came into our lives at just the right time. 3rd Wave Brewing’s original website worked for a while but as we were entering into our 4th year in business, we soon realized we needed to step up our game and have a more professional, mobile friendly, higher ranking website for our loyal patrons and our new and established accounts. The last 5 months of working with Sprout Creatives has made us realize how many little details and sparks of creativity go into all of our beers. Our craft beers now shine on our new website.

We are thrilled with our new website and already have noticed a huge increase in hits, as well as numerous compliments from customers.

During the entire process Paul Starkey at Sprout Creatives was always easy to contact and he was responsive. He was quick to react to accommodate our thoughts and input. No pride of authorship there, he’s willing to work closely with clients to ensure the end result is to their liking. We did most of our work over email etc. but he always made time for personal meetings and took as much time as we needed. And I guess the proof, as they say, is in the pudding. We are thrilled with our new website and already have noticed a huge increase in hits, as well as numerous compliments from customers. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

After the website was launched Sprout Creatives has continued to communicate with us to make sure that we are completely satisfied. They really give personal service!

From the very start, the team at Sprout Creatives was very professional in their approach and very reasonable in cost. They were most helpful and creative in their ideas. We were in constant contact during the building process and all my questions and concerns were addressed immediately. They completed the work within the timeline we agreed on and we have received many compliments on our new website.
