CMS Application Development with Web Standards

I had noted that I was going to link to some of the other articles and writing that I had been doing.

Well here goes …

Over at my employer’s Web site we have a series of articles called NavigationArts Insight, where different staff members write on various topics of interest. What started as a small collection of articles on various topics really has been growing to a fairly impressive collection on everything from design to user experience and search engineering.

Earlier in the year I contributed an article called CMS Application Development with Web Standards. The article is an overview of a project we did a few years ago in fact, so in some ways it’s almost dated, but the work is still something we’re quite proud of. Specifically, we redesigned and rebuilt the Web site for the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts using the .NET-based Web Content Management System (WCMS) Sitecore.

The article covers a few techniques that were used which we felt seriously improved the structure of the front-end and backend build. In particular, some of the extra clean CSS and JavaScript techniques that were used. Give it a read and let me know what you think.

Incidentally, this is the same collection of articles that I contributed A Business Case for Web Standards-based Development ages ago as well.
