Meeting to introduce “Web Reboot” set for May 12

It’s time. After more than a year of work by a team representing every entity at UTMB, it’s time to share the project widely. Are we totally ready? No. We don’t have all the answers (we don’t have all the questions), which is why this is the perfect time to engage the larger community of campus web developers.

If this is the first you’ve heard of this, the “Web Reboot” is a multifaceted project a year plus in development. The project was developed and is being presented by the Internet Technology Committee (ITC); it was endorsed by the university’s leadership earlier this year.

The Reboot will introduce new tools including a simple yet sophisticated web content management system, mobile site templates, link and spelling validation, a digital image library, new guidelines and page requirements, social media changes, and training and tutorials to support the web development community and those they serve.

The meeting is set for Tuesday, May 12, 2015, from 10 to 11 a.m. in Levin Hall North Auditorium.

We’ll be providing an overview and starting a discussion. Some of the tools are ready now, some are close, others are still in development.

The meeting will not be streamed but it will be recorded and rebroadcast. The meeting is open to anyone at UTMB with an interest in Internet technology or development. Hope you can join us.
