As co-founder of our online travel agency, Discover Africa Group, I head up the in-house team of developers, SEOs, content writers and marketers.
We’ve built a business comprising 3 established online brands in the Africa travel niche: Drive South Africa, Overlanding Africa and Discover Africa.
Since our inception in 2002, we’ve run all our dev projects in-house. We’ve built sites in notepad, we’ve built custom CMS’s, we’ve cursed our custom CMS’s, we’ve built WordPress sites, we’ve shrugged at WordPress’s inflexibility. Eventually, thanks to a chance introduction to Luke Hardiman (New Release), we found our holy grail of rapid, flexible, scalable web development: ExpressionEngine.
Over the last 2 years, we’ve rolled out 3 EE projects and continue to move our remaining legacy websites and CMS’s over to EE.
My main message (as an ex-coder and current business decision maker): Choose ExpressionEngine. If you don’t go, you won’t know.
Same applies to my other hobbies: surfing, running, etc
