Silex Contributor of the Month
Written by Antonin Saturday, 2 March 2013
Pascal Roë d’Albert is long-time active member of the Silex community and he has been nominated as the contributor of the month.
Pascal is a freelance web designer who works with Silex since the first version. He used Silex to design his own website http://pascaldesign.fr, and he also use it to sell website to his clients (you’ll find below two examples of website designed by Pascal by using Silex).
Silex’s key strength according to Pascal is the possibility of modifying the website on line whenever and wherever needed. Pascal founds this particularly useful when demoing how easy it is to edit a website powered by Silex to his clients.
Silex also allows to modify the graphic effects of animations without the need to have coding skills.
You can also custom and integrate components very easily. Another advantage of Silex is that you can stock your work and reuse it keeping the same basis and adapting the visual to the new needs, so it save a lot of time whiteout decreasing the quality of the work.
Being a member of the Silex community has provided Pascal with great networking opportunity and he also had the chance to collaborate closely with developers. It gave him a good knowledge of the (hidden side) “back office” of a software, which helps him when working on his own projects. He also learned new ways of using Flash.
Pascal really enjoys using Silex which he thinks is the best way to build websites of various types without being a developer.
He developed a lot of loaders and two templates which you can see below.
Pascal is one of the great contributor of Silex thanks to whom Silex exists.
