Even before John announced that he was leaving, I had been considering several changes that I wanted to make. The problem was always in getting the time away from actively working projects and being able to think through what we would like to do.
Jeff has just finished a long stretch where he has been working pretty much exclusively on the new Campus Visit Registration system for the Visitor Center. We have been anticipating this for a long time, because he can now devote his full energies toward our mobile offerings.
I won’t steal this thunder – he can blog the specifics of what we have planned later, but it looks like the reshuffling of duties within the Division is going to mean that both the mobile web and mobile apps are finally going to come under one umbrella rather than having divided governance. This will let Jeff focus on maintaining one solid back-end to present the content to both the mobile website and the apps. This will make life much easier for maintenance,and should put us back among the leaders in presenting an overall campus mobile offering.
