When we sat down to redesign DevCentral we had a couple of themes in mind

  1. Make the navigation simpler.
  2. Enable people to connect with other people.

 

I also had a few goals in mind while working on the new skin

  1. Design for cacheability
  2. The page should load as fast as possible
  3. The page should be as small as possible
  4. Should be able to extend the site easily

 

Over the next few days I’m going to write a series of posts explaining how the DevCentral team and I went about achieving those goals.
