 Overview

The NCAR Web Developers' Group is a group of NCAR Web developers with responsibility for organization-level websites, and was formed February 2007 to:

  1. Provide two-way communication regarding NCAR web development and content issues between the NCAR Directorate/NSF and the NCAR labs and divisions
  2. To work together to find methods of making the whole of NCAR's web presence more "world-class" in both its content, architecture, design, applications, identity & tools
  3. To share methods, knowledge, coding tips, design-tips, and maybe even entire developed tools and modules, to increase development efficiency (instead of each developer "reinventing the wheel")
  4. To come to consensus on "what NCAR needs", so that future development can be conducted in a more cohesive manner, and any issues that need to be farmed out to other existing committees can be identified and coordinated accordingly
  5. To provide opportunities for networking and professional comraderie
  6. To identify & provide professional development opportunities (which could be made available UCAR-wide)
  7. To advise the NCAR Directorate's Web Producer with regard to the main NCAR website, and how to best feature lab & division research
  8. To find ways to use the NCAR website to help our scientists network, collaborate, share results & communicate
  9. To find ways to use the NCAR website to create efficient methods of doing administrative tasks.
  10. To inspire us to reach higher

Group Poll from First Meeting: What members want from NCAR Web Dev Group Meetings

Brainstormed Topics:

  • Talk about/resolve web issues
  • How to tell the NCAR "story" through our content
  • Web 2.0 - How our sites can use these concepts
  • Communication!
  • Continuity, building sites that work together and function similarly
  • Networking opportunities
  • To be around other design people
  • Discuss good conference and training opportunities
  • Code reuse/streamline efforts - we are all re-creating some of the same tools
  • Create and adhere to a more similar "corporate style" (stronger NCAR identity)
  • Share skills (How did another developer solve problem you are having)
  • Suggest needed classes and training to Cheryl Cristanelli/management
  • Website maintenance of workflow - how do others delegate/assign updating of sites

If you think of other ideas, just add them to this list.
