TAMU Webmaster's Blog


Information and insight from the A&M Webmasters

Project Status

October 30th, 2009 by Erick Beck

We’re stuck in the middle of several large projects.  Since posting that “we’re now moving from stage 4 to stage 5 of projext X” doesn’t make for the most interesting of reading, blog posts might become a little sparse for a while.  Don’t let that discourage you, know that we’re busy, just that we’re stuck inside of larger projects.

We are continuing to make progress on the mobile site.  It is going a bit slow because we want to get it right and make sure that you have a good experience no matter which device you use.  We are also working on recreating the TAMU News site.  It will become much more dynamic and hopefully have more content that interests a broader range of people.  We have already rolled out the Aggie Clips (sorry, only available on campus) portion, and hope to have the rest by the end of the holidays.

We are talking to GIS about a new version of the campus map. They have unimaginable data sources and the technology to build a map that will really rock.  We will be cooperating with them, making sure the features and interface match what users expect.  We are also taking up their idea of panaramas to start thinking about how campus virtual tours might work.

There are a few other things that we have going on that we will release shortly.  In the meantime, we’ll try to make up for any lack of blog posts by being more diligent with our tweets.  They might be more mundane, but they’ll also give a better insight into what we do on a day-to-day basis.
