After being elected as a Technical Rep for my University College alongside James Stephenson, the first task we were given was to create a brand new website.
We were given a huge amount of flexibility as to what the website did, and looked like; which was great.
Using the usual PHP and MySQL, we built the website on the MVC design pattern. The website is heavily integrated with Facebook; with all events and photos being pulled from the various Goodricke College groups, and all authentication done using Facebook Connect. All members of the JCRC have the ability to add blog posts themselves, formatting their text using the friendly Textile syntax.
Managing individual pages is also a snap, with our own CMS allowing specific user roles to add and edit pages on the fly.
