PDX Interactive was a class project designed to initiate discussion about process regarding web development. The project spanned an entire term, during which our class planned, marketed and hosted a discussion panel with project managers, developers and designers from agencies across Portland. I was part of the team responsible for developing a home base on the web. The goals for the site were to get information about the event out, feature panelists and after the event, host information gathered during the discussions. Jekyll, a bundled Ruby gem, was used as the template engine. This was my first experience using a “markdown” style template system but with the help of Nate G we completed the site and were able to use Github Pages for hosting.
