Code of the perldancer.org website
This project holds the complete code of the perldancer.org website. When a push to master is performed, this updates the code of the website.
This branch contains the new version of the website
Here we list all the specifications collected by the team for the new website.
I love that we showcase how easy some concepts are in Dancer right on the landing page. I am not sold, however, in cycling them through on the carousel. It would be nice if all of that content was always available without having to wait for it to scroll by (that’s just a personal preference though).
I agree the carousel is a bit old-fashioned, or even, annoying. A "featured" section of real-life examples of the code could be a cood mix: letting the user switch from one example to another, on purpose. Like blog featured articles.
A dedicated section for all the conferences, with videos from previous events, schedule for conferences to come, like a "PerlDancer on Tour" page.
The website should provide a complete access to the documentation. Ideally, fully indexed to be searched via a text box.
Examples of interesting websites: Angular JS or jQuery.
Ideas from Racke: why not letting the users comment on the documentation, via a wiki method, directly on the website?
Not sure about this as it would lead to two branches for the documentaiton: the POD and the Wiki.
See http://www.sinatrarb.com/intro.html which is quite a good way of introdcuing the concepts.
It seems we all like it. So we'll keep it. No reason to change something we like. But we'll refresh it a bit, and try to create smaller formats, like a favicon.
We'll also change the 4 words around the logo, by 4 keywords of the project: Fast, Fun, Easy, Productive.
A revamp of that section, with a better, more eye-candy layout. Probably killing the thumbnails is a good idea. It's hard to maintain and looks not that good. Probably a simplie list is better, like Sinatrarb.com does.
