Custom Programming

What is custom programming?

What’s included under custom programming changes depending on what programming company you’re talking to and what area of programming they specialize in. 

In terms of websites, custom programming usually means using code to change the functionality or look of a website, or to pull specific data from a website. 

You can also use custom programming to create web applications. Web applications can be accessible on the web, but step people through a specific task, like applying for a job, accessing their email, or manage a project.

The cost of custom programming project depends on how difficult the project is, and how long it will take to complete. Simple projects can range from $500 to $1,000, and more complicated projects can range from $1,000 to $25,000 and up. 

At Barr Web Services, we think its important that you can accurately plan your budget, which is why we promise never to increase your bill if a project takes longer than expected. The only time costs would increase is if the project scope changes, and these cost increases would be agreed upon by both parties before any work begins.
