In order to finish my MBA with a concentration in Management Information Systems (MIS), I’m required to take Information Systems. The general concept behind the class is to understand the necessary steps that go into the analysis and design of IT systems.

CMS, AJAX, and Custom Analytics

My boss asked me a few weeks ago to develop a site for one of the professors at Binghamton University. The site was to just be a redesign for some content the professor already had hosted, and needed to be clean and simple to use. After talking to my boss, we decided on a basic […]
