Arista is a computer product developer founded in 1994 and headquartered in Fremont, CA, with operations in China, India and Taiwan. They came to me when they needed a developer who was responsive to their needs and could get the job done. That was in 2015-2016. Unfortunately, there was a marketing guy in between Arista and me who forced his vision of the website. It has ended up being clunky and hard for the end users to manage. Luckily, Arista has come back and asked me to re-design the website without the “assistance” of the marketing guy and we are converting to WordPress with a WooCommerce back end to manage the catalog of products. This will make the website much easier to deal with.
We were able to do some pretty cool things even with the problems brought on by the third party. For instance, they use a WordPress blog to post articles and announcements which I was able to pull and display on the home page. I also gave them a folder on the server that they can drop images into for the slideshow on the home page. No messing with code. Just put an image in a folder and it shows up.
