Moving forward – web development

October 10th, 2011 by Erick Beck

No promises yet, but it looks like through shuffling responsibilities and positions, we might get two new people on the team to replace John. If so that would greatly improve what we are able to do. We will be able to work on projects that actually make an impact rather than those that simply consume all of our time. It also means we will have some real knowledge overlap and can assign projects to more than just one person.

In the meantime, Jeff just returned from the HTML5.tx conference, and I expect him to start sharing a lot of great ideas. We have already been talking about using HTML5 for the new mobile website. At this point that is pretty much a no-brainer, but I’m interested to see if we are close enough to start adopting it as a standard for all of the other sites we create. We are at a point in the cycle that we’re getting ready to rewrite several of them, so now would be the perfect time to make that transition across the board.

  1. HTML5.tx was one of the best run conferences I’ve attended, and enough staff from Texas A&M were represented that College Station got a call out in the closing forum. I agree HTML5 new markup is a no brainer for mobile. For mainline I’m sticking with HTML4 except using data attributes as the way to decouple behaviors from structure & styles – which enhances security & maintainability.
