I didn’t plan on posting again before Christmas, but I just finished and uploaded a new and improved Pure Adapt site so I figured it was worthy of something quick before I head off to dinner. The old one-page website needed some updating/expanding, so over the past few weeks I’ve been spending a few hours here and there developing the new site. Mike made the new logo and header, and I did the rest.
Like everything else I develop, I tried to use this as a playground to learn a few new things. In particular, I practiced my AJAX skills on the Our Sites page and made an easy to use RSS fetcher for pulling feeds on our News page (side note: I basically fixed a few of the formatting issues with MagpieRSS and made it a little more user friendly. If anyone wants the code drop me an email).
The hardest part was writing the About page. I re-wrote it fifty times and will probably have doubled back over it a few more before you read this post. Writing the community aspect of the page was really gratifying though – all of the stuff we do to give back makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. We can always do better, but I know we do more than a lot of companies our size. I’m proud of that, especially during the holidays.
