Today I am starting a new project with a Prof. Matteo Moretti of the Faculty of Design and Art at the Free University of Bolzano-Bozen.
The project consists in re-creating the actual website of Franz Magazine, A Magazine that “observes and investigates the social and cultural phenomena of its territory” in the local area of South Tyrol, Italy.
It is a series of challenging and interesting tasks for me as a Software Engineer, since the work starts with the elicitation of requirements, includes a huge series of modifications of an existing product (WordPress) and ends with the final product.
A soft deadline for the project is at about mid-October, while a soft deadline for import and merge all the posts of the current website (based on Joomla) is at about mid-December.
It is a pleasure for me to be part of this project and to work with Prof. Moretti. This may lead to a start of other interesting collaborations that (again) emphasize the importance of the symbiosis between designers/graphicians and developers.
