Wonderware Central website redesign launched

After several months of work, I’m pleased to say that Wonderware Central launched its redesigned website today.

Many people were involved in this project, but I did most of the development and design.

This was my first time using the open source Joomla content management system. As such, it was also my first time developing a Joomla template. It didn’t take me too long to figure out and understand how Joomla and its templates work.

I based my design on the Yahoo YUI CSS framework. Joomla uses Mootools as the JavaScript framework, so I stuck with that. I also made use of several third-party extensions that have been developed for the Joomla CMS, which speed up my development and should make it easier to maintain the website in the long run.

This was a fun project to work on. So far, I’m receiving some good feedback from my coworkers, which is nice.
