A yearlong project to research and develop a prototype knowledge ecosystem in Drupal to aggregate and deliver information tools and resources related to local food systems. I researched relevant information systems and tools in order to architect a robust framework within drupal. Worked with a geographically-dispersed team of technical developers and project stakeholders to build this grant-funded prototype site.
The NERL website is a custom theme built on Yale University’s drupal content management system (CMS), and takes full advantage of drupal’s modularity and flexibility, which enabled us to develop a custom architecture for organizing and sharing NERL’s web content.
Much of the content on this website is restricted to NERL members, utilizing Drupal’s content access and user/role capabilities. Drupal views are used to display different slices of the database information.
I worked with NERL to consolidate two existing html websites (public and private) into a single drupal site. I analyzed business needs, wrote the project specification, built the site within Yale’s drupal instrallation, worked with numerous technical service providers, and supervised external designers and programmers.
Created an email form, and used Macromedia Dreamweaver and Photoshop for the logo and page design. The project allso required SSH and unix for file transfer and management.
