3580 Pages to Go

Although we only deployed one chunk today, we’re officially down to only 3580 pages to go. Given that we were looking at 17,000 pages a year ago, and 9000 pages a few months ago, we’re pretty happy! The end is almost in sight!

Deployments today:

Last Deployments of July

We’ve reached the end of our last two week sprint in July. A couple team members will be out on a mid summer vacation next week, so things might slow down, but before we worry about that, here’s the deployments of the day:

We also had an internal goal of 50% of all college departments moved to Drupal by the end of July (and there’s still time to do more!). Although our progress goals would seem to indicate that we’ve only moved 45% of departments, we’ve actually moved 62% if we only look at the ones that we’re going to eventually move to Drupal.

2 Big Deployments

We pushed two big sites live today:

Academic and Student Affairs was a monster of a site – some 500 pages. In order to make it manageable, with some help from Tana Stuart over in ASA, we broke it up into a number of smaller sites, and were able to identify some mini sites that could actually be archived – publicly available, but no longer part of the core website. Kassidy Zuniga, an intern at our New Media Center, also updated the look of our archive splash page. Be sure to check out her work!

Depending on how you shuffle the numbers, we’re now at 38% of pages complete, and 57% of departments complete. Many thanks to the friendly folks over at Marketing and Public Relations, who helped us move a stunning 900 pages to the archive (you won’t see anything different yet, but expect a new, streamlined news release format soon!).
