Coffeecup Software – Web Development? It’s not just a breakfast drink(new designers) anymore.
The year was 2005. I searched for software to build a website. There was plenty out on the market like netobjects and such, but I wanted something simple that I could be creative with. I didn’t know any HTML or Search Engine Optimization. A friend of mine found Coffeecup. I would go to their forums and ask what I thought was silly questions about web design, but folks like Adam and Inger never belittled me and everyone was always supportive.
It’s real! Promise.
Over the years I’m sure CC has had their struggles I’m sure, but have continued to improve their products. Today I work with scripts like jquery, ajax, and Joomla, WordPress, but I still love to build sites with my first program from Coffeecup, Visual Site Designer. Sometimes I publish, and sometimes it’s my personal whiteboard to layout the design for other platforms.
Coffeecup just won the About.com award for the best web design program, beating out the all so famous Macromedia Dreamweaver. Even though programs like their flash form builder are very sophisticated with a MySql interface option, they are still built with new users in mind. The people on the CC forums have not changed one single bit. Always supportive, and always friendly.
Now web design and e-commerce has come to it’s rightful place in the spotlight, and CC is paving the way by not only offering information about their software, but how to design sites integrating with WordPress, Joomla as well.
All of the above I just said was true, and thousands of members, Ambassadors, and users will back me up on it.
Oh, one last thing…coffee??? Love it.:)
