Welcome to the first 101 Best Web Sites blog entry.
I’m working as part of a small team (2 people) attempting to build an entire web application in a weekend! I’ll be building the backend systems and database, whilst the other developer will be dealing with the front end XHTML and design work.
My colleague and I run a small web design company (www.bestservedcold.com) and had an idea to build a modern web design showcase for some time now. Being in the internet industry we spend a lot of time looking around CSS showcase sites for inspiration and new ideas, however, the sites in question seem to have stood still whilst other websites have surged forwards with their technology and up to date designs.
Our biggest issue in building this new site has been time! When ever we try to dedicate any, we end up getting distracted with work for our clients and never quite get stuck in and the idea got shelved.
Solution? Take a weekend out, turn the phones off, ignore email and dedicate 12 hours a day for both days building an MVC based web application!
We’ll be updating this blog during the weekend starting at 10am tomorrow, so have a look at our progress and view the main site here:
