> > Hello folks!
> > I made a draft version of a Boston Python Workshop website. Here it is:
> > http://linode.openhatch.org/~paulproteus/tmp-bpw/public/
> > (source here: https://gitorious.org/openhatch/oh-bpw )
> Last night, Jessica and I had time to talk about it. Here are some
> action items.
> * we want to replace the image on the front with a different photo
Jessica, I want you to choose the photo here!
> * we want to make sure that when you look at the front page,
> your eye is drawn to the central information (photo/text)
To achieve this, we decided to make the navigation a little less bold,
and spread it across the top rather than the left.
> * Replace front big text with: "We empower women of all backgrounds to learn practical programming in a beginner-friendly environment."
Done. (Text subject to further change; submit a patch or suggest specific
> * don't use the word hack on the events page (suggestion: s/open hack session/where you can continue practicing and learning/)
> * instead of archiving information from previous events on this site, we could use a page on the wiki that was clearly labeled as an archive page
> on the sponsors page:
> * rename the page "sponsorship"
> * we could use the word professional less often
> on the about page:
> * move the results section a little higher
> * if we need to keep talking about the history and the people who started it, we can move that to a section below results
> (Jessica feels that we don't need to even mention them anyway)
I relegated that to a section.
> * Jessica does not need a shout out that says that she's the leading organizer
> on the events page:
> * do not need to say that the upcoming event is number five
> * s/We don't have a signup/When we have a signup/
> * we can link the past event information section to a new archive page
https://openhatch.org/wiki/Boston_Python_Workshop/archive is now
full of text.
> * the link to join the Boston Python user group could look more like a button
> press page:
> * it would be nice to have an embedded Flickr photo browser
I will do this in the next iteration
> * Jessica can tag photos that she thinks would be appropriate to appear here
(she provided me a directory of photos but I haven't reviewed them in
> the run your own page:
> * it would be nice if we showed the logos of the efforts that we inspired
Next iteration, for now
> domain name:
> * Asheesh wants to use bostonpythonworkshop.com for now, and Jessica says sure
> I will work on implementing these changes today.
I shipped these changes and they are live at
http://bostonpythonworkshop.com/ and will now handle the image-related changes.
