Website Status

While we work hard to keep our website’s downtime to under 1% you can use the page status.openspacetrust.org to check if our site is down or you are having issues with your Internet connection. The Status Page is independent from the website but don’t forget to bookmark it since you’ll need the direct link if you are unable to reach POST website in the first place.

Web User Personas

These are the three Personas profile developed for our website work. They reflect the common denominator of our web users and can be used to hold discussions for planning:
Emotionally Connected Loyalist
Active / Affluent / Influential Professional
Millennial Young Family

Web D&D Management

To keep up with the fast-paced growth of POST and support the pursuit of our Mission the Web Design and Development manager position has evolved from that of a webmaster and developer to a product manager and team lead.

Using an Agile Project Management methodology and a team of developers, designers and experts we continue to find ways to innovate and keep up with the velocity, volume, and variation of the demands of POST’s growth.

 

Our technology partners are the Bay Area-based DaySpring Technologies that supports the design and development of new features, bug fixes, and special web projects like the recently launched Awareness Campaign.  And, more recently added the New Possibilities Group, a New Jersey based web agency that currently supports us with website and server maintenance.
