As you may have noticed already, RVMS has redesigned its website to reflect the growing needs of Roslindale residents, landlords, and business owners. The whole site is now mobile-friendly, meaning you can view it with ease on both a smartphone or a tablet. It also has a dynamic, interactive business directory and an enhanced farmers market page and events calendar.
The website was created by Resilient Coders, a Boston-based nonprofit that helps underserved communities equip themselves with tech skills that they can use for future job opportunities and improve their communities. They run a seven-week program that teaches students the fundamentals of front-end web development. They start with the basics and end with real-world client work. We worked with Muigai Unaka, a Resilient Coders lab leader and a senior at Northeastern University, and one of Resilient Coders' top performers from their Summer 2016 Bootcamp, Ashley Laing.
RVMS decided to redesign the website last February, and a website subcommittee was formed. Under the leadership of its chair Talia Whyte, the website subcommittee thoroughly reviewed the previous site to see how it could be improved in the redesign. It was our priority to make it an easy-to-use resource for both current and potential business owners, landlords and residents in Roslindale.
We hope you like it!
