For the past few months I've been touting a presentation around the BBC entitled 'How we make websites'. It's a compendium of everything our team has learned from long years developing /programmes, the recent work on /music and the currently in development /events.

As a warning there's very little original thinking in here. For those familiar with the concept of one web, the importance of persistent URIs, REST, Domain Driven Design and Linked Open Data it'll probably be old news. Possibly it's interesting to see all these threads tied up in one place!?! Maybe it's interesting to see them all from a user experience point of view?!? Anyway, as ever, it's built on the thinking and achievements of many clever people over many years who are too numerous to mention here. Although obviously I'll make an exception for Paul Clifford and TimBL. :)


The presentation is here and the (slightly) expanded text is below for the sake of accessibility and Google.
