State of the Lab 2009

The 2009 school year was perhaps the most regulated one the Syslab has seen since it's inception. Sice the creation of the Intranet, more and more of the work done by the SysAdmins has been focused on production-ready products.

  • The TJ Website was upgraded to what it currently looks like in order to revolutionize it for "Web 2.0". The decisions for the design were mainly made by a committee made up of several staff and PTSA members; the students involved in the project tried to do their best to make the website as good as it could be given the design constraints, but they were dealing with a flawed original design (in many ways).
