wattwatt.com, an energy driven community

I am proud to annouce the openning of the wattwatt.com community. Wattwatt.com is focused on electrical energy efficiency and allow his members to discuss and share about related topics.

As web developper on this project I emphasized on some important points:

  • We have followed the progessive enhancment principle in our javascript development. We use Ajax wisely when needed. The user can still use the website without javascript. At the end it helps us a lot because the web analytic tool that we must use confuse firefox's javascript interpreter.

  • We tried to use semantic markup.

  • We have used the great Django web framework and win a lot of time doing so.

  • We made a main effort to be compatible with the majority of browsers: IE6/7, Firefox, Safari, Opera.
