AdLIB Design is personal web development company founded by Dr Larry Barsh in 1999. RateCE.com, a review and rating service for professional continuing education, is a subsidiary.
AdLIB DESIGN develops and hosts custom web sites. Whatever your needs, whatever your budget, we can develop a web site just for you and your business or profession. We can plan even the most basic sites for easy updates when your needs become more complex. No need to replace a site when your business expands.
At AdLIB DESIGN we feel that a site visitor is more interested in your business than ours. We believe that a web site should showcase your talents, abilities and business rather than show off our technical skills. Our web sites are clean, crisp and easy to navigate. They encourage site visitors to do what they came to do and get the information they came to get - quickly, simply, easily and without distraction. Most of all, our all sites are now mobile-ready and will reconfigure to fit any size screen be it computer, pad or smartphone.
And because we feel strongly that web sites must be kept fresh and interesting, we can incorporate easy-to-use content management systems that allow you to change photographs and update content. Any employee can easily change real estate listings, photographs, restaurant menus, daily specials, loan rates, professional services, dental laboratory products - really anything you can think of.
You'll never end up talking to a "second-stringer" who can't promise you results. You call our number, you get Studio City, CA not freakin' New Dehli or Mumbai! When you call or email with a question, AdLIB DESIGN answers. Period!
Whether you need a new web site or want to upgrade a current, under-performing web site give us a call or drop us an email. You'll be happy you did.
Enough with this promotional crap...
About the Founder
OK, here's the straight poop...
The founder of AdLIB Design is a 76 year old (2013) retired dentist who learned to code web sites in 1999 while sitting in a lecture room with 13 other participants whose total age was 1 year less than he was. My name is Larry Barsh.
Here's how it happened. 14 of us web developer-aspirants were sitting in a small lecture room on 42nd Street in New York City. The instructor, a guy named Dave, came into the room and said "My name is Dave and I'll be with you for the next 3 days. I want you all to set up a SQL database." 13 people in a room of 14 approached their keyboards aggresively, one sat in stunned silence. This went on for a total of 3 v-e-r-y long days. Finally on the afternoon of the third day, Dave said "Well, that does it! Does anyone have any questions?"
One hand went up and I said: "I seemed to have lost you at one point, Dave."
"When was that," asked Dave.
"Right after you said Hello, my name is Dave, " was the response.
Anyhow that was about 5 year ago and now I'm programming HTML 5, CSS 3 and working with ColdFusion (a datase language) and able to develop web sites that accomodate to the viewing screen size.
That's my story, what's yours?
But there is a caveat to this story...
I am, as mentioned 76 years old (2013), my hair is gray, and the fact is YOU do not have many more years to avail yourself of my maturity and brilliance. Who knows what is going to happen or how many more years you'll have to take advantage of my experience. In a couple of years, you might even have to turn to your pimply-faced 14 year old nephew or, even worse, an automated, uncaring large impersonal company to develop your web site.
But I am still here and able to develop responsive web sites that will provide your clients, customers or patients with an incredibly easy web site to navigate. So drop me a note in the box to the right and we can start getting your online experience up-to-date.
