A web site enhances the character of the enterprise it represents, offering a view into what makes the organization tick, as well as how to interact with it (often through the web site itself). The ultimate success is to create such interactivity with style, so that people visiting the web site are not even paying attention to the technology. Everything should fit into place, masking the complexity that lies beneath. That is the art of web design.

Microsoft Office Products

Microsoft Office is the productivity suite most people use on a daily basis. Launched in early 2013, the new office.com web site reflects Microsoft's adaptation to the web, sporting its new Metro design aesthetic, online purchasing channels, and software products that don't simply employ the web, but run on it from top to bottom.

As a Web Producer assigned to the site, my responsibilities included:

  • Coordination and cooperation with a multi-disciplined team of site managers, designers, and developers.
  • Page creation and development using the Metro aesthetic, grid system, and enterprise-level CSS styling.
  • Code management on multiple development servers using the Office Content Management System (OCMS) and SharePoint 2010.

Microsoft Exchange

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and Microsoft Online are the enterprise-level email server software packages used by Fortune 500 companies and modern start-ups alike. Throughout 2010 and 2011, Microsoft was in the midst of a major initiative to move sales of Exchange away from old-school business partnerships and into the cloud. The Exchange web site underwent rapid change in order to match this dramatic shift in Microsoft's business model.

As the Web Developer assigned to the site, my responsibilities included:

  • Working directly with management to draft and interpret business and technical requirements.
  • Conceiving and coding user interface design (HTML, CSS, jQuery, XML, CSP, Photoshop) for all areas of the Exchange web site.
  • Code management on multiple development servers using SharePoint 2010.

In early 2013, the Exchange web site was decomissioned and re-directed to office.com/exchange.
