‘I’m not just another coder. I’m a fellow entrepreneur.’

You've spent years building your business, honing your expertise, and putting your name on the line with every project you take on. But sometimes you feel like you're banging your head against a wall trying to find a web developer who can live up to your standards and keep up with the pace of your business.

I'm Rob Howard, the president of Howard Development & Consulting, and I'd like to introduce to you a new kind of web partnership. I've merged my background in design, advertising and journalism with more than two decades of passion and expertise in web development and tech entrepreneurship.

We focus exclusively on partnerships with high-end creative agencies like yours, delivering top-notch WordPress development, bulletproof security and rock-solid performance on every site we build and manage.

My carefully cultivated development team and flexible, efficient business philosophy ensure that we'll always have the bandwidth to take action on your next project – whether your deadline is next quarter or next week.

It's time to stop hiring "coders" and hoping for the best. When you work with Howard Development & Consulting, you're getting more than a web developer. You're getting a partner who'll help you build your business and make your clients and customers proud.

For 21 years, we've been trusted and praised by high-profile brands and organizations...

We've been building web sites professionally since 1999, and we've been trusted to deliver top-of-the-line projects for:

The World Bank, Harvard University, MIT, Marriott and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

But we're not just great developers, we're business builders too. Rob Howard's start-ups have been praised in:

Entertainment Weekly, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek, TechCrunch and VentureBeat

How can we help your business grow?

Custom WordPress Theme & Plugin Development

We build pixel-perfect custom WordPress themes in partnership with creative agencies, and we develop advanced custom plugins to solve entrepreneurs' biggest business challenges.

Security & Performance Optimization

What good is a beautiful site if it's not fast and secure? Our security and performance improvements leave no stone unturned and ensure the engine behind your web business is running at full steam.

Priority Support & Proactive Improvements

We don't launch sites and walk away — we build long-term, high-value relationships that keep your site running smoothly for years to come. That includes priority support, proactive software upgrades, automatic backups and more.

Expertise in Shopify, WooCommerce and All Things WordPress

We know the most popular and powerful themes, frameworks and plugins inside and out. Whether you're customizing WooCommerce, crafting a Shopify site, or fine-tuning your SEO, we've been there and done that.

Scaling WordPress & Amazon Web Services

Our clients handle millions of monthly pageviews without a hiccup on our custom, lightning-fast AWS stacks. Our AWS Certified Solutions Architects help you trim down and scale up, even when other developers say it can't be done.

Custom MySQL, PHP & JavaScript Applications

Beyond WordPress, we're experts in advanced MySQL and modern JavaScript and PHP frameworks, such as Laravel and Vue.js. Our custom intranets and analytics software help our clients make the most of their teams and their data.
