Alienware’s Website Refresh

This past monday ( June 10) Alienware released a refreshed site.  As one of the developers behind this refresh I feel happy that the deployment went well, there where some hiccups here and there during the first few hours but it was all good at the end of the day.  I joined Alienware back in February and I was assigned the task of starting the refresh, that is the reason I feel proud of the site since a lot of my ideas (both good and not so good) ended up in the final release.

When others ask me how happy I am with the end result I always reply that I’m about 70% happy.  I know I could have improved many things but constrains and time are always the enemy.  However I think that the current state of the site is a pretty darn good foundation for whatever we decide to build on the future.  I also feel happy that Mr Dell(big boss) himself said he liked the look and feel of the new site.  Also I glanced thru some message boards and the general consensus is that people like it.

So what does the future hold?  Well I’ve taken it upon myself to improve the speed of the site and rethink my not so good ideas.  And hopefully I’ll get some time to relax now that I’ve crossed the first big hurdle at Alienware and while I wait for the next big thing.

Alienware’s Alien Network

As some of you may know I currently work @ Alienware. Today we are releasing the first episode for our Alien Network. I’m not entirely sure what will be covered on the episode since I have not seen it, however I’m really interested on what people have to say about that project.

If you have any comments, suggestions or a question that you would like to see answered in an upcoming episode on the Alien Network just submit a comment or hit me up thru the contact form.

Thats all for now, I’ll post later on today after we go live.

Alien Network goes live April 29, 2008 @ 3pm EST

update: Well its 11pm and I finally watched the episode. I think it that it was kind of monotone as some people commented over at Engadget. But I must admit that the idea has potential, hopefully the episodes will get better over time.
