Written from the perspective of a software designer, Where Code and Content Meet presents a collection of patterns that address the content-related aspects of custom software development for advanced websites or web platforms.
Focusing on the interplay of code and content with a small amount of overlap with web development, this book describes techniques and strategies that work well with different languages and tools rather than concentrating on a specific programming language or content management system.
Key topics include:
- Content modelling and organisation
- Content delivery
- Personalisation and user participation
Independent of specific tools and technologies, the patterns serve as a practical guide to designing your own content-related custom components for your web project and can be used to define an architecture that matches your specific needs. The patterns in this book not only seek to align code and content as far as functionality is concerned, but also focus on non-functional requirements.
Aimed at IT professionals involved in web projects, including software designers, developers, IT managers and architects, Where Code and Content Meet will help you to evolve the architecture of your site and smoothly integrate new functionality. Likewise, if software longevity is your goal and you plan to refactor your website, this book will lead you to take the right steps.
