Built by Jay was commissioned to design and build the website for the 2014 Annual Meeting of the BCCA by the event's co-ordinator, Lorraine Richardson.
Our first challenge was to regain ownership of the bcca2014.co.uk domain name, which Lorraine's previous web designer had lost control of. I guided Lorraine through Nominet's dispute process and we were ultimately able to regain control of it.
The design of the site needed to be professional and functional, and had to promote important event information such as the programme, the venue and accommodation, as well as sponsors and contact details.
The back-end is powered by the PHP framework Laravel, which enabled me take advantage of it's excellent form validation and database ORM functionality. Transactional emails are sent via Mailgun.
The site is fully responsive, optimised for retina displays and is compatible with IE8+.
