Grinnell Web – a prehistory

Fri, 2013-01-04 02:24 | By Anonymous (not verified)

Basically, it all started in 2001. Before then, Grinnell didn’t have a website. Well, it did have a web presence, but it was really a collection of unrelated web pages, maintained mostly in Dreamweaver. In 2001, we came up with a system to manage a more unified website, and give it some coherence. We didn’t know then that the type of system we have developed would be soon called “a content management system” (CMS), and that using various CMSs would soon become a de-facto standard in the web world.

Student Involvement

Fri, 2013-01-04 02:24 | By Anonymous (not verified)

From the beginning, we have had a lot of talented students in support and development: Yasir Mehboob ‘03, Yaw Nti-Addae ‘04, Kabenla Armah '04, Jingsheng Wang '08, Mark Root-Whiley '09, Tianqi Zhang '11 and Doug Dobrzynski '13, to name the main ones. Not only do the students bring their talent and energy to the process, but they also give us live feedback about the site. They help us not to become stale,  to keep our minds open, to never rest.
