Responsive content strategy in a non-responsive world

Keith Bolland, Web Content Manager at Victoria University is going to talk about his recent experiences with their website redevelopment.

In Keith's words....

Victoria University recently took the wraps off its new, responsively designed website. I'll be talking about the eighteen months of slog it took to get us there. 
Topics will include:

• How we convinced the organisation it wanted a responsive site

• What happens when responsive content strategy meets “put my stuff on the website”

• Our bag of implementation tricks

• Integrating with business systems to automate things that had been transcribed manually

• What I'd do differently if we did it again

Same deal as always.... Meet at around 5.45pm... BYO drinks, nibbles provided by our lovely hosts *experience.

See you there!

      Hi David, I believe Sarah is still away doing Good for Nothing/travelling around SE Asia. I think she's due back sometime this month so expect an announcement then. You can confirm your email settings under 'My profile' Cheers, Tim

    Keith's presentation was excellent - he's skilled, knows his stuff well and often very funny. The reason he doesn't get 5 stars is just that he talked a bit fast. It was hard to hear especially when the fan started up. There's also a big space above the presenter's head which sound gets lost in. I learnt heaps, and enjoyed the networking and the *evidence hospitality. A great meetup, thanks.

      Thanks for the feedback, Sarah! It's a failing of mine, and I'll try to remember to slow down in future. :)

      Thanks for the feedback re the acoustics and the fan noise Sarah - we've not long been in the new space and that's the first time we've cranked up the air-con... I'm sure there's a happy medium somewhere! And thanks Keith for your excellent recap of the recent Vic journey - insightful and entertaining as always :-)

    Interesting and humorous. Have been researching Squiz Matrix as a result.

    Great talk Keith - now that we're getting into warmer temps we might have to address the 'fan' (air con)... either that all you can stop breathing warm air :-)
    Seriously though, this is a very timely topic and for all members of the meetup, would love to hear from you if you encounter this in your daily jobs.
    Speaking of which.... any more volunteers for the Pecha Kuhcha?

    I have been invited to Optimal-in-a-church, who can say no to that? Have fun and hope some insights from Vics work can be used to help the wider community push some good web governance.

    I encourage people to join the waitlist if the meetup is full.
    Many people find on the day they can't make it and places always become available - will email you when people Un-RSVP.
