Web developer

Hi all, we have been approached by a developer who writes web
applications and he would like us to help with the front end.
Has anyone had any experience with working with an outside developer?
Bearing in mind I’m using freeway and not Dreamweaver.
And, any advice / pitfalls that I could come across.

I have not had the first meeting with them yet, so not 100% sure how
we would be employed, but these are the technologies they’re
employing, and I suspect they would be embedded in the site to some
degree rather than being totally standalone items:

• Ruby on Rails
• XHTML / CSS
• Javascript
• Mapping Integration
• Payment Integration	
• Payment Gateway Integration

Any advice that could help by giving me a heads up with dealing with
developers would be gratefully received

If all they want you to do is make it pretty, then you can proceed as you would normally, then give them the published site folder (not the Freeway document) when you are finished. They can then paste their code in where it needs to go, but i’m guessing they may ask for specific divisions (html boxes) for specific content in specific places.

Keep in mind that any changes they make to what you provide will not exist at your end. Should be workable.

I have done this before and in my case all the developer wanted was layered Photoshop files of the different page templates.

I did it a few years ago for a client and basically just supplied the
published folder of HTML bits and resources.

Their designer then put things like updateable training courses,
latest hews etc into the html and it worked fine. For the pages where
this happens I didn’t have to do anything out of the ordinary apart
from make the links where applicable, but leave the content of the
pages blank, just supplying empty pages with headers and footers.

Hope this helps.
