We might have been quiet, but we have been busy! Here’s a quick overview of what the web team has been up to recently.

In the past month we’ve worked on:

  • New juju.ubuntu.com website: we’ve revamped the information architecture, revisited the key journeys and updated the look to be more in line with www.ubuntu.com
  • Fenchurch (our CMS): we’ve worked on speeding up deployment and continuous testing
  • New Ubuntu OpenStack cloud section on www.ubuntu.com/cloud: we’ve launched a restructured cloud section, with links to more resources, clearer journeys and updated design
  • Juju GUI: we’ve launched the brand new service inspector

And we’re currently working on:

  • 13.10 release updates: the new Ubuntu release is upon us, and we’re getting the website ready to show it off
  • A completely new project that will be our mobile/responsive pilot: we’re updating our web patterns to a more future-friendly shape, investigating solutions to handle responsive images, and we’ve set up a (growing) mobile device testing suite — watch this space for more on this project
  • Fenchurch: we’re improving our internal demo servers and enhancing performance on the downloads page to help deal with release days!
  • Usability testing of the new cloud section: following the aforementioned launch, Tingting is helping us test these pages with their target audience — and we’ve already found loads of things we can improve!
  • A new canonical.com: we haven’t worked on Canonical’s main website in a while, so we’re looking into making it leaner and meaner. As a first stage, Carla has been conducting internal interviews and analysing the existing content
  • Juju GUI: we’re designing on-boarding and a new notification system, and we’re finalising designs for the masthead, service block and relationship lines

We’ve also learnt that Spencer’s favourite author is Paul Auster. And Tristram wrote a post on his blog about his first experience with Juju.
