IAP Launches New Web Site

The IAP has today (12th January) launched its new Web site. It is based on the popular WordPress blogging tool and allows the IAP to develop their site further, using add-ins provided by third parties or written by our technical staff.

While, initially, the site has brought over most of the content from the old site (using database-driven content management), it now provides the platform to build and add new functionality; in particular additional member facilities.

Rather than having a lead time of around six weeks for print publishing in VSJ, we now can add new articles to the site as soon as they are ready. These articles are further published via Twitter (http://twitter.com/iap_org_uk) and FaceBook, for which the IAP has set up new accounts. The FaceBook address will be published as soon as we have finished our testing.

In addition we have links to Google and, shortly, to LinkedIn, which will allow our members to extend their public LinkedIn profiles into the IAP Web site.

Much of the site will have a complete review over the next few weeks to maintain its relevancy and to revise and add facilities, gradually evolving the site’s suitability for our members.

We hope our members (and even non-members) will write and comment on the articles on the site. As we publish more material we will create more interaction between those of us in the Programming and Analysis field.

Future content will also be focused on the needs of our members and may include links and feeds from third parties to provide wider and more relevant information.

We look forward to your contributions!
