Congrats to the big team over there assembled to take on this major redesign process. Unlike our redesigns around here that are usually more like realignments with minor dev work and UX sprinkles each iteration, this was a ground-up rebuild for them. They migrated a bunch of different platforms all into one, a static-site based system with all front end APIs. It’s gotta feel good to pull all that stuff into one system. I remember when I used to have four different systems around here (WordPress, Forums (various), eCommerce (various), and some raw PHP stuff) and the good feeling it was to get it all yanked in under one WordPress roof.
