Hello all, can some one help me with tips on how to update and upgrade an already existing website? Just got a job and need to do something unique in my new office.
Start by stopping. Take a long look at what's there already, and could it use some improvement?
. I hope you're not one of those people who enter, throw everything up in the air to make an impression of action, and then move on.
Is this a canned application, or home-grown? If canned/prewritten, commercial or open source/free? Is it many releases behind? Internal use (intranet) or public facing? Does it look and act "so 1999" or is it reasonably up to date? Does it do what it's asked to do, or would its owners and users like it to do more? Does it give a satisfactory user experience?
