What is Dynamic Internet Programmming?

I was in an elevator, of all places, the other day and began doing what I do often – striking up a conversation with a stranger. He was a lawyer and I introduced myself as President of Intoria, a “dynamic Internet programming firm.” During the discussion that followed, it became clear to me that this gentleman had no idea what the difference was between “dynamic Internet programming” and the more common “static Internet programming.” If the door to his floor hadn’t opened, perhaps I would have had time to describe to him the power that is available online when programming dynamically. Or, perhaps he’ll stumble upon this blog and understand the important difference.

Intoria is a dynamic Internet programming firm. At this time, I am not describing the team that works here, nor the pace of our office environment. I am referring to the capability of the complex websites we create which are able to change instantly, based on user input. For example, have you ever been to a website which shows an out-of-date copyright year in the footer? This is a perfect simple example of static Internet programming. However, if you use dynamic Internet programming language, the website will sense the time the page loads, and always display the current year, so it is never out of date.

Take this to an advanced level. Complex, ever-changing sites that fully respond to user interaction are the basis of sites that are useful. As an example, when you want to book a flight, an airline site needs to find out where you are and where you want to go, then do numerous calculations and computations based on dates and locations to submit your results. It would be impossible to program pages for every itineration, so dynamic (or changing) programming is used.
