Tony will work through all the stages of design, development, and production of PosanaRestaurant.com, a restaurant website for one of the top restaurants in Asheville. From the initial site architecture, design, and project management, to hosting, content migration, SEO and social media integration, Tony will give an end-to-end look at how to effectively plan and deliver a solution that gets winning results.

Also in this talk, Tony will show how his team and the restaurant owners were involved every step of the way as they planned and architected a custom restaurant menu system using Advanced Custom Fields and planned for heavy mobile responsive usage by analyzing Google Analytics statistics.
