Everyone knows progress indicators during the installation of software. They are a nice visual solution to inform the user about the current state of a process.

I have been building websites for over 20 years. Over this time, type and scope of web projects have changed considerably, and also the way they are approached. With the use of content management systems, the agile development process has become increasingly important. Content structure, design and technology are developed jointly by all project participants on the living object.

Current practice in web development often does not tap the full potential of today’s technology. While results are sometimes achieved (through more technology than anybody possibly needs), the development process itself is not state-of-the-art. Many times the process is extremely time and cost consuming - for both contractors and decision makers as well as other stakeholders.

The use of frameworks can be a huge benefit for developing web applications in many cases. We have not to reinvent the wheel and can draw on a wide range of proven functionalities, this significantly reduces the development time within a project.

One strength of the Joomla community of frontend and UI developers has been that accessibility and its implications for web sites was an acknowledged requirement do their best to consider accessibility guidelines every day.
