This past week at the OF contributor’s conference we had a series of discussions about overhauling the project website and bringing it into the modern era. As you can imagine this is no small task as it involves reorganizing the canon of information and resources that currently live on the site in addition to a significant UX, design and engineering effort. We started to outline what a new OF site could look like and @armonnaeini mocked up a quick interactive prototype to explore how it might work.
We’re still in the very early stages of exploration and are looking for folks excited to jump in and help us bring this effort to life. Over the next couple weeks we’ll be working on a road map to guide us towards launching a new OF website in the spring. If you have experience in web design or development, information architecture, interaction design, or program management we’d love to have your help! We’re going to host a google hangout in a couple weeks to share what came out of the OF contributor’s conference, bring everyone up to speed and plan next steps. The impact that a new site will have on OF can’t be overstated. If you’re interested in joining the hangout please add your name & location (for timezone purposes) here. Thanks!
