New site online

Well, today I decided it was about time that our new site went online as the old site does not contain enough information anymore.

I get more and more questions about what we exactly do at the moment and that is a lot more then what we did in 2005 when we started and when the old site was made.

One of the issues with the old site was, that it was made in many different languages, so very hard to replace as all the translations needed to be done again. The same issue arises of course with this new site, but it's made with our latest technology, so much easier to adapt and for now I'll accept it's only in English.

This also brings me to the issue that it takes much, much more time to make the text for this site than I expected. Mostly we get 'content' from our customers, so I don't worry too much about it, but with this  project of making our own site up-to-date and add all the information about our company I can find I found out that it's a lot of work and takes a lot of time.

So basically this site is just a draft, in text as well as design. To tell you the truth I just copied an old template and adapted it the bit so I had a system to work with to put the content (menus and text).

So where do I want to go with this site (and I can say 'I' here as this is just a blog item, so my personal opinion:

  • It should be built with the Active Discovery Application Framework
  • It should have an outstanding design
  • It should use Flash as well as our own JavaScript graphical library for graphical effects
  • And last but not least: it should use our 'resizing' technology, which we have not combined with our Framework yet

So a major project for us, but I guess it's worth it as we can use it to present our company and show what we can do.
