About Great Web Sights and Its Services

Great Web Sights began operation in June, 2000 and has since provided small and medium businesses in Southeast Pennsylvania, and all across the US, with web design, development, training, and support.

While engaged in this activity, Great Web Sights has also set about establishing an identity among the web-development community by authoring books, book chapters, tutorials, presentations, and both on-site and remote mentoring/training. Recognition for these activities has come in the form of appointments by three major suppliers of HTML authoring software: Microsoft, Macromedia and Adobe. The founder of Great Web Sights (Murray R. Summers) was invited by Macromedia to become first a Dreamweaver Evangelist in 2000, eventually leading to his current role as an Adobe Certified Dreamweaver Developer, and Community Expert (Adobe purchased Macromedia in 2005). Murray was also invited to become a Microsoft Most Valuable Partner in 2006. In these roles, Murray provides detailed and advanced technical support to other users on the product forums at their respective companies.

Great Web Sights operates as a 'virtual agency,' partnering with other designers and developers as needed for each job. This allows Great Web Sights to customize the team depending on your particular needs. Each partner is carefully chosen from a 'short list' of well-respected individuals who have established a reputation in the community in their own right.
