Today I internally made some improvements in the way I was sorting and retrieving information in the site, also I added the Topic Tab information displaying which taxonomy it belongs to as well alphabetic order for all taxonomies. After, I started to work on the displaying of information for each of the taxonomies, now you can see related philosophers.

STAs: Student Technology Assistants
Who We Are
LAITS: IT and Facilities Director, Joe TenBarge initiated the Student Technology Assistant program in 2004. STAs are UT students who work on a variety of projects in collaboration with UT faculty and LAITS staff members. STAs assist College of Liberal Arts faculty members and administrative staff with print and web design. From building presentations, to creating audio/visual works, and producing online classes in the LAITS film studios, STAs are instrumental in helping COLA faculty realize their vision for multimedia projects that enhance their teaching and the students learning experience. By the end of their student careers, STAs have portfolios which demonstrate their accrued technical and design skills.
Creative and technically inclined students are appointed as STAs for one year, with the possibility of being rehired as long as they study at the university. Applicants for the program are hired before both long semesters. Interested students may look for postings on Hire-A-Longhorn when positions are available. Positions will have Student Technology Assistant (illustrator or web designer) in the title of the job post.

Suloni & I spent quite a bit of time reworking the design of the orange callout box. I learned so much about Cascade’s callout box styling (and how much it LOVES to wrap..) I think I’ve really gotten the hang of Cascade and coding in the source code box of Cascade. I’m actually so proud of how the design turned out! The linked buttons at the bottom of the page were especially fun. That being said, if Tim approves of this layout then this project is officially done!
Today I worked on modifying the prototype according to the requirements of the client: first about tab, index became Topical Index. On the bibliographies subsite it will display the type of source, and also It will be add a new filter according to the source type.
I also worked on the development of the site, where I mapped the taxonomies (movements, periods, topics, etc) to both the Philosophers and Bibliographies site.
Today I also worked on displaying the information of the Bibliographies into the site format.
I was tasked to make a banner for CODE Zika Brasil’s website. Here’s some progress images.
They’re a little plain, but I consulted Suloni about these images. She gave me lots of advice and helped steer me in the right direction. She suggested that I show an intersection of these images, select colors from the COLA web pages, fully render the pregnant woman, and use a san-serif font.
