Meeting Minutes:

Welcomed new member – Kevin Wu, GUS Project Manager & Lead Developer, Enterprise Technology Services

Reviewed meeting minutes for August 2017. Minutes approved by David Gurba.

Web Technology Exchange (WTX) update – None

UCSB Graphic Identity Guidelines update

  • Formal identity guidelines are in development.
  • Alex Parraga will likely be able to share a draft of those—plus a further evolution of the web work—in October’s meeting.

WSG videos on GauchoCast

  • Gary Scott and Denise Saludares deleted some of the WSG videos on GauchoCast based on the results of the survey sent out to WSG members.
  • The remaining videos will be edited to remove “dead air” before they are captioned.
  • Instructional Development will cover the cost of captioning this time around; any new content created in the future will need to be paid for by WSG.

WSG Mailing List moved to UCSB Connect/Google

  • Denise moved the mailing list on August 30th.
  • You should have received an email notification about the new list/Google Group.

Site of the month - https://ccs.ucsb.edu/

  • Developed by Brian Wolf using Drupal 8

Resources of the month

  • Google Data Studio - https://datastudio.google.com
    • Used by Matt Hall, Associate Vice Chancellor for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer, at the recent UCSB IT Foundations session
  • Identify Technologies Used on a Website - https://github.com/ucsb-wsg/ucsb-wsg.github.io/wiki/Identify-Technologies-Used-on-a-Website
    • Page created by David which lists online tools to help determine which technologies were used to develop a website
    • David is often asked for this information from other developers and clients on campus, and he feels it would be a resource to stakeholders of campus projects.

Lynda.com class of the month - RESTful Web API Design with Node.js

  • Gary is currently watching the videos from this class.
