Here at Red Monkey Goo we had been talking about doing a free community project once a year for some time when finally we had a perfect opportunity to do so. The Brunswick Community Kindergarten is a community run kindergarten that has been running since 1924 by the parent community. When we were approached in passing about some guidance relating to a new web site they were planning, we decided what better way to start our community project run with something very close to home.
Keep up to date on all the goings on at RMG HQ.
This is where we share our thoughts, ideas and sometimes just enjoy a bit of a chit chat.
Well it has been quite a while since our last post so I wanted to quickly update everyone on what we have been working on and also talk a little bit about MonkeyBones our new boilerplate template/theme for any WordPress projects we undertake, and also an extension we have built for Magento that eases the Google Analytics/Visual Website Optimizer/Affiliates conversion tracking setup and configuration.
So with a new site, comes a new philosophy. Going forward, all Red Monkey Goo’s new websites, be it our clients to our own in house projects, will be responsive by default. We see a lot of businesses still pushing this as a added extra. A nice to have. In this increasingly mobile world we believe it should be standard.
Well it has been a few more weeks than anticipated since our last blog detailing our take on an e-commerce project from start to finish. All the normal reasons of course hold true as to why we hadn’t got the blog out. Busy, busy and busy. But also during this time we have been sitting down at the negotiations table (picture a quaint little table in a French coffee shop close by) working out the details of how MiBolsa (the bag people) teamed up with Red Monkey Goo.
