While this website does (mostly) function and looks a bit snazzier than the old one if I do say so myself, there's still a lot of work to be done. Many hands make light work, so I'm looking to teach more people how to help develop and maintain the website.
We'll have a party for everyone who's involved or wants to be involved in the website at my place in Hackett with dinner provided. This will be an opportunity for new people to be onboarded with how to make modifications to the website, and for more experienced devs to get together and workshop their projects.
Required web-dev experience: NONE
Thanks to Gabe and Jonathan, it's much easier to get a "development" copy of the website running on your laptop that you can fiddle around with without fear of breaking the website itself. The first thing we'll do is get everyone a working copy, then show you how to modify the site.
Modifying the website can broadly be done in three ways depending on your prior experience:
- Point and Click on the website itself to modify pages. Literally the same thing as when you make a trip. You can also help us restructure the menu layout which has become very confusing (no experience required!)
- Making tweaks to the theme / appearance (easy to learn, coding experience helpful)
- Modifying or adding functionality, eg trip registration or gear store (requires proficiency in Python)
