Rebuilding from the ground up
Last Wednesday (25th April) I gave a talk at the UX Oxford Speaker Series about the work I’ve been doing at the WDCS over the past year, and why to my friends it seemed like I had vanished off the face of the earth.
It’s a wide-ranging talk, looking at the problems with the current site, our initial research and findings, and the the content-out/responsive approach we’ve taken towards the redevelopment.
The talk itself lasts around a half-hour, with another half-hour Q&A session afterwards.
The books that I reference during the talk are:
- The Elements of Content Strategy by Erin Kissane
- Content Strategy for the Web by Kristina Halvorson & Melissa Rach
- Responsive Web Design by Ethan Marcotte
- Adaptive Web Design by Aaron Gustafson
And the list of useful links and further reading can be found on my Pinboard account under the tag uxoxford2012.
Thanks to UX Oxford for inviting me to speak, it was great to finally show everyone what I’ve been working on and I really enjoyed the questions after.
Fingers crossed we’re due to go into public beta sometime in June.
