Posted by on February 11th, 2011 · Uncategorized

Yesterday we had a our ‘kick- off ‘ meeting with our new developers ‘The Interaction Consortium‘ – known as IxC for short. This officially inauguarates the building stage of the project.

Greg Turner (Director, PhD and Technical Information Architect among other things) drove the meeting that was attended by the DAAO project team, Lead CI Prof Ross Harley and our trusty site designers, House of Laudanum and Alastair Weakley ( another Director of IxC, who also has a PhD and is also terribly clever and experienced at developing cutting edge data driven sites).

Greg re-establishing definitions of success for project.

It was very exciting to finally get everyone in a room together and to plan the build. Everyone is the room is so committed to making the new DAAO a real example of best practice E- research. There is something so wonderful about saying things like’ so we’ll have completed data migration by March’ , or we’ll be ‘editing data  in the site in April’ , ‘we’ll be testing most functionality in May’.

check the focus in the room. No Ross is not asleep, he is deep in thought.

So watch this space! there’ll be lots to show and tell soon.

Unfortunately the card does not have a photo on it and is limited in its use as a form of identification. The card does not make you eligible for tertiary student concession travel.

If you attend classes in Sydney CBD, North Ryde, North Sydney, Parramatta, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth or online (GCCM/Web based class), please reply to this email with your UNSW ID and full name if you would like a card produced for you*.
