Solomon McCown
Launch Site

The Solomon McCown website had to meet several challenges: a tight timeline, a tight budget, an agile CMS and setup on a hosted GoDaddy environment. I was began looking for open source CMS solutions and tested Drupal, Joomla, Frog CMS and eventually settled on Umbraco. The reason for my choice was because it allow you to define custom data models and being able to switch the layout associated with the template. Having had previous Sitecore experience, it was a fairly natural transition and I was able to solve a lot of functional issues. There were a few interesting technologies they wanted integrated including a blog, a twitter feed and a media list that would allow the editors to create an array of thumbnails and upon clicking on them would load the full image or youtube video above the list.
