ABOUT US

The women behind the company


Westside Websites is a tech company in Los Angeles owned-and-operated by two women, web pioneering, software engineers — Camille Alcasid and Sandra Jimenez. Together, the duo brings an exceptional level of expertise to all stages of a web application's lifecycle, customized to each project's resources, methodology, budget and timeline. (As their personal giveback to the industry, they also launched Wonder Women Coders in 2017, an in-person course that teaches women to code and engineer for the web.)

Camille started her career in 1995, as one of the first web developers for Comcast-NBCUniversal, producing nbc4la.com (the very first local TV news website in Los Angeles). A couple of years later, Sandra joined Camille as the Senior Developer for a tech-startup now known as zap2it.com, a popular TV listings & news website. Camille and Sandra worked together, once again, as Executive and Senior Consultants to spearhead the launch of e-business for top music companies like EMI, Sony, Universal, and WEA. Camille then set her sights on creating a content management system for the TV industry, in which BAMtools was born. Meanwhile, Sandra was recruited by carsdirect.com as a Senior Java Developer, where she mastered Enterprise Commerce.

Eventually, Camille and Sandra rejoined forces to create Westside Websites, an innovative web engineering company dedicated to providing digital solutions for Entertainment & News, Corporate Intranet and Extranet, Crowd-Funding, Contest, Promotion, Video Streaming, Email Blast, Group Message Boards, Content Management Systems, and Text-to-Vote, to name a few. Most recently in 2019, Camille and Sandra has entered the AI space after winning in an AT&T hackathon with their Wonder Women Coders. The women banded together to innovate and bring their application to market — an exciting new way for to utilize visual, gesture, audio, and speech-to-text recognition using element detection within videos.

"We're invaluable to sales and marketing teams, not just IT," says Sandra, "We solve roadblocks and improve efficiency in ways companies communicate with each other and/or their target audience through digital solutions."

"Our clients hire us to execute their creative concepts using the latest web technology," adds Camille, "We also enjoy collaborating with many advertising and creative agencies in town as their tech counterpart."

With over 25+ years of development experience under their belt, Westside Websites boasts an impressive client list, featuring prestigious corporations which include Twentieth Television, Western Digital, MyNetworkTV, NBCUniversal, Tribune, FXX, Kingworld, Sony, and Telemundo. Looking towards the future, Westside Websites continues to make strides in being a reputable force in the digital world.

SERVICES

HTML/CSS/Javascript, ASP.NET Core/MVC, MS SQL, ElasticSearch, Machine Learning


User-Experience ("UX") Design

We create wireframes as the blueprint for the user's experience. Wireframes determine what will be developed, as well as help scope the project's resources, milestones, timeline, and budget..

User-Interface ("UI") Engineering

We render wireframes and graphical designs to be displayed on web browsers or email clients, including mobile devices -- using hands-on codes in HTML5/CSS3/Javascript. We use the latest technology to display the look of a webpage (or url address) as it adapts or responds to each user's action.

AI & Application Middleware

We implement all the business logic and workflow that tie the presentation layer (UX and UI) and data together using ASP.NET Core/MVC in C# or Machine Learning solutions from IBMWatson, Microsoft Vision, AWS Sagemaker, and Google Vision. In other words, we build the brains of the application -- the most important, yet most under-rated piece that affects a website's quality and value.

Content Management System

We want our clients to manage the content of their websites, database, or workflow in an efficient, secure, and easy manner, through the use of a web browser. We developed a proprietary business asset management system called BAMtools in 2001 to give our clients the ability to control their data, toggle who can access their assets, and communicate with their customers through email blasts.

Database

We design, manage, migrate, and host relational databases in Microsoft SQL Server using T-SQL. From simple queries to complex stored procedures, performance optimization is our top priority.

Dedicated Hosting & System Administration

We host and administer dedicated Windows and Linux servers in our climate-controlled datacenter, enforcing the highest level of network and physical security. Our flexibility allows us to customize your server, bandwidth, redundancy, and backup requirements to fit your budget. (We don't throttle your bandwidth!)

Video Encoding, Distribution, and AI

Because of our background in pioneering video streaming on the web, we build proprietary solutions for clients in need of batch video encoding and private hosting. Most recently, we developed a solution to help our clients detect elements within videos using real-time visual, gesture, audio, and speech-to-text recognition.

Application & Data Integration

We develop solutions that allow applications (eg, Salesforce, TV Listings, Social Media, etc.) to approve membership credentials (authentication) and share real-time data.
