New Year, New Look

The IT.Wox site has been dormant for a while & the site had gone stale.

Just in time for the New Year 2016, time to refresh & reboot!

So, here’s presenting the new look site: www.itwox.com

The Goals

  • Highlight what IT.Wox stands for (aka. motto/USP/theme)
  • Highlight the services/products of IT.Wox (aka. what we do)
  • Highlight some interesting aspects of the site (via Blog, News, Social etc.)
  • Support mobile & desktop browsers (gracefully degrade, where possible)

The Subtle Text

Being that we are a start-up (of 2 people, part-time!), the design had to be done in-house or rather by your’s truly. With $50.00/year (or less!) operating budget, the site has to deliver a message on a budget!

However, we need to support latest “web presence” requirements:

  • A mobile-first website
  • Branding & messaging
  • Social media presence
  • Site Analytics
  • Communications & interactions with web visitors
  • Modern web development standards (build – test – deploy)
  • Source control, Issue Tracker & Build Management
  • Scalable Infrastructure
  • Legal needs like privacy policy, disclaimers etc.

The Subtle-er Text

This site is an expression.
Of what we can do, of how we can do it & our whole philosophy/approach to the business of IT as it applies to consulting & development. It is an expression of our vision of a company & what we hope to achieve.

This site is an experiment.
Of technology, design & integration of various components which are needed for modern web development. In that sense, this site is not finished (& might never be!), we hope to keep it going forward each cycle to the next version with better improvements to reflect our current understanding & thinking about this business.

This site is an experience & instruction.
Of the details needed for running & maintaining a simple web site. While the scale is small/micro, the complexity & approach is still the same as any of the large site/applications out there. We will surely learn – from our experience, feedback from this site & other channels, to make it better. However, we could also be a source of knowledge for other developers out there & starting out on similar endeavors.

The Next…

In the following few weeks, we hope to post some of the interesting aspects of this site, few implementation details & hope you will read along and/or provide comments where due.

Happy New Year!
