Another Plone Site on AWS OpsWorks

January 26, 2015

Congratulations to YES! Magazine on the launch of their redesigned website!

YES! Magazine

This award winning, ad-free, non-profit online (and print) magazine for progressive thinkers runs on Plone, our favorite CMS. Originally launched in 2009 by our friends at Web Collective and Groundwire (RIP), this is the first redesign the site has had since then. The focus was squarely on mobile usability (since 40% of site visits are now mobile) and social engagement. It looks great!

All the planning, analysis, and design work for the new site was done in-house; the Diazo theme implementation and site upgrade were done by Bryan Wilson, formerly of Web Collective. We helped a little bit as well: the YES! technical staff decided to host the new site on Amazon’s AWS cloud platform using the OpsWorks recipes for Plone and Python developed by Alec Mitchell. Alec walked Bryan through some of the technical details of the deployment stack and he was off and running.

We’re very pleased our Plone-OpsWorks contributions helped YES! Magazine!
