A few comments...
The infrastructure of this site was originally designed and implemented by CIS Networking Program interns Kevin Keithan and Andrew Steiner in 2001 under my direction. From that essential beginning, the network has grown and prospered. Kevin Keithan was the webdevlccc.com network engineer from September 2001 to January 2005. Without his ingenuity and hard work, this site would simply not exist. His efforts managed to squeak every last bit of performance from the servers and kept us on the cutting edge of technology. He leaves LCCC to pursue challenging opportunities with another organization and I wish him all the best. I am the faculty contact for the Information Systems and Web Developer Programs of Study at LCCC and plug away at creating content for the site as time permits.
The purpose of this site is twofold:
- to provide as realistic an experience as we can give our Web Developer majors in the most popular and state-of-the-art technology available and
- to provide a network infrastructure for students in the Computer Science, Information Systems, Programming, and Customized concentration courses.
Lots of us at LCCC work very hard every day to achieve both of those goals.
Many individuals have contributed to the design and development of the content for this site. Many people have also worked behind the scenes to provide funds to make all of this possible. Thank you to all who worked on the team to make this site a reality. Please refer to specific sections of the site for developer credit. I created the overall design and developed the main pages. Suggestions are always welcome as is development help. Many of the Web Development majors have worked on parts of this site through its various designs. Of particular note are Debbie Phillips and Sandy Hafer who gave their time very generously. During the Fall of 2004, some members of my Client-Side Scripting II class (CIS 142) will be improving the design and content of this site. Look for their changes sometime next semester. I know you will think that I am biased, however, I genuinely believe that the LCCC Web Developer majors are terrific and are really nice people to work with, too.
Photography credits (not including the work in the student archive) go to Wendy Barron, Jim Harper, and myself. If you see a photograph that you like, have no doubt that Wendy or Jim took it. Mike Burch of LCCC's Word Processing Department created the Technology Center's floor plans.
The current version of this website is due to the concerted efforts of two consecutive Client Side Scripting classes in the 2009 school year (CIS 141 and CIS 142). The header and right side graphics were developed by the CIS 141 team: Andrew Valish, Charleen Bybel, Jimmy Tandazo and Robert Politi. The resulting Web site was constructed using these graphics as a starting point and techniques learned from this semester's cirriculum by the CIS 142 team: Richard Bell, Robert Politi and Emily Hoch.
From its humble beginnings in 2001, this network has grown and flourished and many people should receive praise for that effort. All of them have my sincere thanks.
