College District presentation
By Greg Sabino Mullane
June 14, 2012
Our company meeting at End Point opened today with a presentation about one of our clients, College District by Terry Grant and Ron Phipps, explaining how the site works from a mostly technical angle. College District is a “community where fans and designers create, grade, and promote collegiate products you can’t find anywhere else.” Each team has its own site: for example, the University of Florida Gators can be found at GatorDistrict.com.
Ron and Terry explained the history of how College District moved from a brick and mortar store to their current wide array of sites. They also explained all the technical underpinnings of how things work behind the scene. The sites are powered by Interchange, Postgres 9.1, Git, and other cool technologies. They also explored some of the exciting upcoming ideas for the site, including …no, that would be telling.
