Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it.
No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination:
never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
I have been thinking that it is time to put some fresh looks to some of the Perl community sites as we move towards the end of 2015. I am hoping we can bring most of them to a more modern look and feel and give them a lot more relevance to modern ways of browsing and interacting.
Some of the first sites that I think we can move forward with are those that I have a great deal of input into. In this regard I will be looking to start a re-design of the EPO site, and I need your help.
There are a few things that we need to do with the site:
- It doesn’t show enough thanks for the people who sponsor, work with and are helped by its activities;
- It needs a page for sponsor logos and names for those who donate to the various activities it supports;
- It needs to show the activities it has supported and will continue to be a part of in the future;
- It needs a lot of older material taking down and removing;
- It needs to look pretty;
- It needs to reflect modern design principles including reactive design and the mobile web;
- It needs some interactive elements, but these will be discussed with who ever helps me;
- It needs moving to a sensible git workflow so that we can have branches and more committers;
So I have come to realise that my skills are best used in driving this project forward and that what I need from the community is some people willing to give some help in doing the above. This is an immediate need, so if you have tuits please contact me.
I need someone to design and build the look of the site and they will have a lot of freedom, I’m very approachable on looks.
I need people to help with the technical setup and migration and in designing the project workflow for the new design and future contribution.
I need the people to step up and be counted.
Who’s with me?
