On January 5, 2014 we successfully launched the brand new MediaTemple.net. It’s been a year-long process for me that was filled with prototyping, testing, failing, and learning. This project allowed me to revisit my web development process and ultimately help create a design system that allows our team to build and grow at the speed of the industry. It was such a pleasure to work with and learn from all the incredibly talented people that worked so hard on this redesign.
When I turned 29 last month I found myself reflecting on my life. I thought about how far I’ve come, both in my life and in my career. I remember sitting in my seat during high school graduation and looking around at the smiles on my fellow classmates’ faces. I particularly remember the straight-A students. They knew exactly what they were going to do and where they were going to be, the confidence and excitement was oozing out of them.
