Multiple Technologies for a Massive Website
We joined the Ford team to help with the upkeep of FordVehicles.com and its subdomains. Each calendar year Ford provided us with new vehicle data and images, and we’d keep the site up to date. We worked on the /Lincoln, /Mercury, /FordRacing and /RaceForTheCure pages, among others.
This project included work in C#, ASP.NET, HTML5, JS, XML, XSL, and XSLT. The process was extremely precise, since FordVehicles.com was getting 2M hits per month at the time, they couldn’t be down at all. In addition to the technologies listed above, we also worked with ASP (VBScript), COM objects, SOAP and XPath.
Part of the Bigger Picture
During this project we worked very closely with the advertising and marketing departments to make sure that Ford branding was used appropriately. Extensive testing went into this massive website and each of the subdomains was individually tested for each release. Designing, estimation, project management, and working with a large team were all skills that were exercised with this client. Working on this project was an altogether amazing experience.
