The Northern city of Leeds is the capital of web development of the United Kingdom. Web Development Leeds is a local experiment compiling the total population of Web Development agencies and consultants in the Leeds, West Yorkshire Region. Started in 2007 as the brainchild of Philip Alexander of X-EL new media marketing consortium, Web Development Leeds has to date tallied over 950 separate development agencies as well as an incredible total of over 3,000 individuals involved with web development in Leeds.
The agencies of Web Development Leeds are ranked according to the size of the firm followed by the specific services offered. For example, NetDestrukt is a Leeds Web Development agency specialising in Online gaming for the 7 to 13 year old boys sector. The agency has a full time staff of 14 developers broken down into 3 teams to cover various stages of the game development life cycle. In addition to their three development teams they have a regular bank of 6 contractual on call developers whom they employ on an as needed basis. NetDestrukt is typical of the general status of agencies listed in Web Development Leeds. Beyond the numbers of bums on seats, the development platform or platforms are also included in the categorisation. In the case of NetDestrukt their category would include ASP.NET as their primary platform followed by Flash IDE.
The categories roughly break down into agencies with between 0 to ten developers, ten to 50 developers, and at the top of the ceiling 50 developers and above. In the two years since the start of Web Development Leeds the growth trends of Leeds as a hub for Web Development has become clear. Web development in Leeds has had steady growth over two years including through the current difficult economic times. The client pool looking to Leeds for development services has in turn continually grown, and includes clients ranging from individuals who need a minimal amount of work done, to the major global heavy hitters, coming to Leeds for solutions for their web development requirements.
Web Development Leeds continues to document these regional changes. 2012 is earmarked for publication of the data collated by Philip Alexander, which should reveal the exciting trends happening in West Yorkshire with Web development.
