University Productions (or “UP”) is Lehigh University’s official event-planning committee with a website in need of an overhaul. I completely redesigned the site, making it easier to navigate and read and also utilized ExpressionEngine to power the backend. Thanks to the magic of EE, any aspect of the site can be edited without touching any code, a huge improvement over the old site. I also implemented Dreamhost’s mailing list feature to allow each committee to send out news and information to its members. In addition, a heavy-duty caching mechanism was built to keep the site running quickly.
