Subject RE: revamping the Apache cTAKES website
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2014 22:01:13 GMT
Wow, I've just spent the last 2 hours doing the exact same thing.  That is what I get for missing
a meeting.  Mine is extremely similar, though slightly different language (and without the
"improved performance" bar chart - which may not belong).  I also put the "Examples" in a
big green button right above "Download".    Anyway, same general idea - focus on a couple
primary things, leave lengthy text like the current page for elsewhere.

Subject: RE: revamping the Apache cTAKES website

Check out a mockup of a new website proposal:
Based off bootstrap (Idea borrowed from the Spark folks..).

Couple of key pieces of info:
- 10% of visitors are on mobile/tablets
- The most currently visited pages are: downloads.cgi, gettingstarted.html.  I suggest we
focus our attention on those 2 items.  (Putting a Downloads link right on the front page,

svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ctakes/site/new if you want to checkout the code of
the site.

I would like to second the bootstrap recommendation, with the additional recommendation of
django for the backend. It is an amazing platform for rapid development and easy updating.

Let me know how I can be helpful.
