Stanton Street Force Awakens with Arrival of New Web Developer

Stanton Street Force Awakens with Arrival of New Web Developer

adrianAdrian began his journey to Stanton Street when he was a mere padawan. At the age of 14 years old, he started his college career obtaining an Associates degree within two years. He then enrolled at UTEP during his senior year in high school. Feeling an awakening in the force, we snagged Adrian as soon as he stepped off the graduation stage with his Computer Science degree still clenched in his hand.

Before coming to Stanton Street, Adrian was a pizza master, a math tutor, and Programmer/Research Assistant at UTEP. As if that wasn’t enough, he also had an internship with the Drug Enforcement Administration giving “overachiever” a whole new meaning.

During his spare time Adrian enjoys hanging with friends, watching soccer and painting his face green and silver on Philadephia Eagles game days. He also meticulously schedules his weekly meals to include the following: at least two servings of hot wings, six legitimate tacos, and one platter of seafood. Other hobbies include playing video games, buying everything Apple, and as you may have guessed – consuming everything Star Wars.

Developer Rides Off Into Sunset: Leaves Behind Broken Computer, Half-Eaten Avocado

Developer Rides Off Into Sunset: Leaves Behind Broken Computer, Half-Eaten Avocado

     

Who knew the day would come when we’d have to say farewell to our Legendary Lead Developer and Ranch Flavored Corn Nuts Fanatic, Simeon Williams. Ten years ago, a young developer strutted into Stanton Street with dreams of world domination. Today, he leaves our company for the big city.

As we each rifle through Simeon’s old desk, we’d each like to extend some well wishes to him:

Ball fights will never be the same. We will no longer cower in fear of your rocket arm.” – Tony

“Good riddance. Just kidding. I will make others cower in fear with my powerful throw; but it will be tough to find someone who can match your skill in the world of coding. You will be greatly missed!” – Amy

“Keep it real dawg.” – Mason

“I’ll miss the ‘Bring Your Kids to Work’ days. Your boys are so adorable mostly because they have such a patient and loving dad!” – Karen

“Simeon was (and still is!) a great developer and will be very missed here at Stanton Street. His shoes will take massive feet to fill.” – Chris

“I wanna wish that crazy kid the best of luck. I’m sorry we didn’t get to know each other better, but I hope you kick ass at your new job. P.S. Great beard.” – Eileen

“Thank you for over 10 years of dedication to our company and surviving! Best wishes on your future endeavors.”- Brian

“May you live long and have many goats. ¡Buena Suerte SWIL!” – Naomi

Cosmetic Surgeons’ Website Gets An Enhancement

Cosmetic Surgeons’ Website Gets An Enhancement

Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center of El Paso is the premier plastic surgery practice in the Southwest Region. Dr. Mark Jabor and Dr. R. Dale Reynolds had us build them a beautiful website about three years ago, which increased visit to their site each month by 135% as well as online consultation requests by 22%.

Now, with more than half of the traffic to the Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center of El Paso’s website coming from mobile devices and tablets, the doctors wanted a website that worked well and looked even better on smaller screens. Stanton Street looked into the option of a responsive site, but the Doctors were still very pleased with their current site and didn’t want to a responsive redesign. The next best solution was to design an elegant mobile-friendly site showcasing the cosmetic surgical procedures and services offered by Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center of El Paso.

Three views of the Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center Mobile Website

After thorough research in to which pages on the site were most frequently visited by mobile and tablet users, Stanton Street designed the mobile site so that those pages would be one click away from the homepage. Icons at the top of all pages allow quick and easy access to the menu, photo gallery, maps to their Westside and Eastside locations as well as a click to call feature for both locations. Buttons as the bottom of each page give access to procedure categories such as Face, Breast, Body and Skin making it as easy in investigate any cosmetic surgery service the doctors offer.

Does your website need a lift with the addition of a mobile site? Fill out our contact form or give us a call at (915) 351-8440.

The Heartbleed Bug and Your Stanton Street Website

The Heartbleed Bug and Your Stanton Street Website

Heartbleed Bug

The Heartbleed Bug has consumed most of our newsfeeds in the past few weeks. If you have a website with Stanton Street, rest assured that your Stanton Street hosted website is NOT affected. Our websites do not utilize Open SSL so we were not vulnerable to this security hole. Your usernames and passwords for email, content management systems and our HelpDesk are all secure.

However, please be aware that if your website utilizes third-party hosted services integrated into your site, those may be affected. Since we have several sites to review, we will need your assistance to confirm that your third-party provider has not been affected. This will help expedite the process.

If your third-party provider has Open SSL, they will need to install a new SSL certificate and instruct all users to change their passwords.

Another important thing to mention is if you manage your own social media such as Facebook or Twitter, you will more than likely need to change your personal password. This also applies to anyone who has admin rights to your company’s profile.

For the latest lists of sites that are affected, visit:

To check if your site is affected, you can type your URL into an automatic checker:
