We are super excited to officially declare our new website live! We’ve been working on our website on and off for over a year now. It has been hard to find time to work on it, though having too much billable work is always a good problem to have.

In May 2016 we signed up for [email protected] and formed a ‘Phoenix Web Development’ team. We wanted to display statistics of our contributions on our website. To expedite this we wrote a simple web scraping script to pull numbers from our stats page.



Here at Phoenix we’re in the middle of upgrading our websites to use PHP7 instead of PHP5.6. PHP5 has been the world’s most popular server scripting language for almost a decade now. The time has come to put the faithful old workhorse to pasture.



We estimated the total number of mobile optimised sites on the web. Now we’re doing it again a year later and comparing.
