A new view of Melbourne

This morning, the new City Of Melbourne website went live. This has been the culmination of 4-5 developers over a 6 month period – using SharePoint 2007 Publishing Sites.

Some tricky SharePoint code, and LOTS of customization, layout and WebParts.

Here’s a quick overview (the techo bits) :

  • SharePoint 2007 (MOSS)
  • 2 master pages, with 4 different colour styles (seasonal)
  • 27 page layouts
  • 35 Web Parts
  • Web service integration to back end ASP.NET + SQL webapp
  • Public-facing wizard-style ASP.NET website to enter/edit Events directly in SharePoint
  • Custom search
  • Virtual Earth
  • Weather feeds
  • Cookie-based “MyPicks”

A truly epic-scale Content Management System – an enterprise business solution using a Microsoft product stack & custom dev.

So – how does it look ? Well, have included some before and after shots, as with any “renovation”…
