From server-side to client-side

I have ended my first job at ProjectX Technology Ltdon 31st July and started new role at Fairfax Digital the online division of Fairfax Mediafrom this week.

Fairfax Digital manages a number of key websites in its portfolio,namely, Stuff.co.nz -one of New Zealand’s leading news websites. The new position will focus on the front-end design of Stuff.co.nz, mainly HTML,CSS and javascript programming.

Stuff.co.nz was launched in June 2000, and then re-launched in August 2002. Stuff aims to have consistently high quality content, harnessing ts strengths from Fairfax Media’s several hundred journalists and photographers around the country to provide this in a single online ‘publication’. Stuff receives over one million unique visitors each month.

Stuff.co.nz won the NetGuide award for ‘Best News Service Website’ in 2002, 2003, 2004, and 'Best Media Site' in 2006, as well as the 2004 PC World (NZ) 'Best Media Website'. Judges were looking for an effective news site, which makes excellent use of the immediacy of the internet to communicate the most up to date stories as they break, whilst also being easy to follow at a glance. Judges said Stuff was a very complete site that caters for a vast array of interests.
