Those of you who know me, know I am a huge space dork. So of course I jumped at the opportunity to redesign and host one of the southern hemispheres longest running astronomical society websites – SAS.org.au.
The website has a full wordpress backend for content management, with twitter integration. It also has a facebook connect integration user registration and membership-only areas where members can post their astrophotography and discuss society related material.
To visit the Southern Astronomical Society, go to sas.org.au
Louisa’s Fine Foods is a wonderful initiative that assists with the employment of people with a disability. When they came to us to build a website on a limited budget we were happy to help, and as they had no photography for their project I offered to help. The day their package of food condiments, puddings and cakes arrived I spent over 3 hours placing, preparing and then eating all the food I was photographing. This slowly drove me into a near food coma having stuffed myself full of their wonderful foods!
We recently had the opportunity to help the good crew at Stone & Wood with their website which needed some development updates and features. The Beer Finder has been re-launched after a small hiatus which a much easier “search by postcode” feature. You can also now search by beer TYPE so you’ll always know how far you need to go for your next Pacific Ale!
We’ve also created a dynamic mobile template that uses the same backend content as the main site, so there is no need to duplicate content or manage duplicate versions. As is best practice with this kind of thing though, iPads are excluded since most iPad users don’t want the mobile site, but the full regular desktop site.
If you haven’t tried Stone & Wood before, head to the Beer Finder right now and find yourself some to try!
