This was a super agile project. Yoh needed to redevelop The Agile Awards website but they also wanted us to help them create something that would be a focal point for the agile community and allow the site to live all year round, rather than just for the awards. Key functionality for the awards site included:
- Public voting
- Validating against duplicate corporate voting
- Ticket purchasing
- Registration of attendee information and ticket generation
- Application to be a sponsor
- Past event content
- Ability to feature advertising for sponsors
The big challenge was that they needed all this designing and developing in two months!
What we cooked up
Working closely with Yoh we came up with the idea for The Agile Portal, a dual website that housed the awards and also a portal of article content for the general agile community. The principle was that this site can then be expanded to include more user engagement in subsequent phases by building a forum as well.
