My name is János Krisztián Méry but I prefer to be called “dear Jani”. I’ve been dealing with internet since 1996, specifically with internet technologies, web development, remote linux / unix operations, internet radio and television programs, streaming technologies. My first serious work place was the Film Institute (National Film Institute nowadays, MANDA), this was followed by several system critical places, among others the parallel operation of 35 linux and unix servers – I pursue a similar activity at the moment as well. In the past 25 years I worked on loads of homepages, webshops, inside and outside my country – but it’s fair to say that I was involved in Hungary’s first bigger mainstream websites. I created websites for accountancy firms, children camps, news portals, wakeboard and computer shops, cinemas, job centres, screenprinting workshops, discos, but wasn’t scared of pages with adult content either.
I aim to focus on the client’s needs with any order and use the most appropriate tools and solutions with the client’s goal in mind. Web technology varies widely, there are trendy and not as trendy technologies, budget friendly and costly solutions. I always try to find the most suitable one for my clients, with the optimal price-value-performance coordinates. I am not going to suggest a Laravel and cloud based website for auntie Mary’s sewing shop, just because it’s trendy, it’s the future and so modern. I am also not going to recommend a Joomla based system to a law firm, just because it’s cheap and fast to create. Just as you won’t see me creating a Magento based webshop for a mom selling handcrafts (would be nice for me as it pays well). The main thing is always to find the best technology applicable for the needs of the client. No need to shoot a sparrow with a cannon, and also, we don’t build a wall of straw around lions.
Being a dog person myself, owning 3 beautiful English Setters, I really like dog related tasks and also possess a big deal of expertise, so I really appreciate enquiries from breeders, dog training organisations, clubs, charities, rescues and am even happy to give a discount for a good cause.
