It’s been a long while since my last post… I have been working non-stop, particularly on the new ms.gov, which is going live tomorrow. I wanted to show everyone some great new state websites, all made by subsidiaries of my parent company, NIC, that all use SharePoint. Hopefully these will provide some inspiration to show what is possible with SharePoint for internet-facing sites.
The new Texas.gov is responsive, with a clean, stripped down aesthetic that loads quickly. It uses SharePoint 2010, along with Google fonts, JQuery, Modernizr, and other goodies, proof that modern web development techniques can work beautifully with SharePoint.
The new South Carolina state website is bold and bright. It also uses several modern web technologies such as Google fonts and JQuery UI, and responsive design.
The new Maryland.gov is packed with features. It is an HTML 5, responsive site loaded with custom SharePoint developed features-this site is a good example of what you can do if you have dedicated SharePoint engineers.
I can’t show it today or my GM will kill me, but I can tell you it is a SharePoint 2010 HTML 5 site, it is responsive, uses Twitter Bootstrap, JQuery, SPServices, Google Search and Google fonts, and it is has touch groovies for tablet users. I will post more on it tomorrow 🙂
